Synopsis
Thor returns to earth and immediately begins to take care of Eric Masterson's personal business. The British government sends Excalibur to America to apprehend the Juggernaut. Fed up with the instability of the Wrecker, Enchantress sends out an Asgardian beacon to lure him into a trap. All parties, Thor, Excalibur and the Wrecking Crew, converge on the beacon and begin to battle. The Wrecker uses his Asgardian power to make Excalibur see Thor as their prey, the Juggernaut, and Kitty phases him into the roof.
