Siege #4 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara

As the Sentry continues to transform into the all-powerful, malevolent Void in the sky over the ruins of Asgard, Loki is full of remorse. The God of Mischief pleads for forgiveness from his father Odin, revealing that he did not intend the destruction of the home of the Aesir but meant to restore the Norse gods to their rightful glory. So Loki drains the power of the villains and transfers it to the heroes, enabling them to do battle with the Void. But even Thor’s mightiest attack has no effect on the Void, who quickly realizes the source of the new power. The monster scoops up Loki, who fights back wielding a Norn Stone but it is no use: the Void causes Loki to explode in mid-air. The enraged Thor redoubles his efforts against the massive enemy while Captain America demands that Norman Osborn tell him how to control the Sentry—and there isn’t any way. Iron Man orders Thor to lead the villain away from Broxton and turns the disabled HAMMER Helicarrier into a missile to strike directly at the Void, causing a massive mushroom cloud as the reactors detonate. When the smoke clears, all that can be seen is the naked and helpless form of Robert Reynolds, who begs to be killed. Thor instead insists Reynolds live to pay for his crimes—which causes the hapless human to transform into the Void again, leading Thor to beat it to death with his Uru hammer. Thor wraps Reynolds’ body in his cape and flies into space to cast it into the sun. In the aftermath of the battle, Osborn and his supporters are placed under arrest. Steve returns the shield to Bucky, insisting that the former sidekick is the true Captain America.

Later at the White House, the President offers Steve Rogers the position of the nation’s chief law-enforcement officer. The Superhuman Registration Act is overturned and Tony Stark throws a huge party for all the heroes at Avengers Tower. Thor and the Aesir make an unscheduled appearance to thank the heroes for their friendship and support during the siege of Asgard, and as a sign of that friendship he has Heimdall add a structure to the top of the Tower. Thor also assures them that if the call is given he would be ready to join the Avengers once more. And that offer is gladly accepted by Steve Rogers, who announces that he will need them all for what happens next….
