The Hulk is being controlled by Loki and the Marvel Next heroes find they can't bring him down. Spider-Girl and Cap show up with Thor who promptly joins the battle. With little ground still being made, Captain America sacrifices his life to destroy Loki's control crystal and all of our heroes return to their right minds. Hulk pushes Loki into Limbo and they both disappear. Thor gives Cap a stellar tribute fitting a fallen hero.
