- Captain America decides to limit the team to six members. A large group of heroes are compelled by Moondragon to enter Avengers Mansion and audition so she can choose the roster. The heroes drive her away.
Most of the heroes leave but Tigra requests to join and Yellowjacket returns full-time. Uncomfortable with the dangers of being a superhero, Wonder Man voluntarily leaves. The Beast, Scarlet Witch and Vision also leave. Feeling ignored, Jocasta leaves not knowing the team had decided to give her a special "substitute Avenger" status.
The new Avengers team at the end of the story consists of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Tigra, the Wasp and Yellowjacket.
