Spider-Woman, on the run from the government, has no sooner made it to Calif. when she is attacked by 2 super powered Pacific Overlords as she investigates a boat pulling into dock with no running lights. Even with the Avengers West trying to pull themselves together from their recent reformat (Hawkeye is no longer the leader, Quicksilver is leaving & USAgent has been kicked out), they respond to Spider-Woman's plea for help. The team tracks down the Overlord's base & finds it is guarded by a giant toddler with concussive powers. They also learn that Dr. Demonicus is behind the plot.
