Synopsis:
Forced to disband the Avengers, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch cannot find work until the Ringmaster hires them. Unable to control them, he tells the police that they tried to rob his Circus. Suddenly the three are on the run. Working on his own, Cap is able to pin the whole scheme on Enchantress and Power Man. Enchantress bails back to Asgard. Power Man, deprived of his lady love, surrenders. The City Council withdraws its order: the Avengers may assemble again. But Cap has had enough of Hawkeye and refuses to re-join.

Indexer Notes

Kuramoto credit per Nick Caputo, April 2013. Previous indexer credited Ray Holloway. Nick notes that based upon an examination of the lettering styles Ray Holloway has been incorrectly identified as using the pseudonym "Sherigail". The name was derived from Morrie Kuramoto's wife and daughter, Gail and Sherry, as noted here:
