Synopsis[edit]

Eight months after the Ultimatum Wave, The Defenders, having recently acquired superpowers, attack Iron Man and Hawkeye at the Triskelion facility. After a brief fight, Captain America, Zarda, and Valkyrie arrive to help. The Defenders then teleport away, stealing the great Mjöllnir from Valkyrie in the process. Meanwhile in Central Park, Shanna, Ka-Zar, and the Black Panther encounter Loki as he returns to Earth with the Enchantress and a swarm of monsters.

At the same time, Hela offers Thor a return to Earth from Valhalla in exchange for a son. It is also revealed that Tony and Carol Danvers, director of SHIELD, have become romantically involved.
