The Coming of the Avengers!
Loki, imprisoned on the Isle of Silence in Asgard, uses thought projection to travel to Earth seeking revenge. Spotting Thor in his human form, Dr. Donald Blake, Loki devises a plan involving the Hulk to force Blake's transformation into Thor. The plan succeeds, leading to the Hulk being falsely accused of a rampage. The Teen Brigade seeks help, reaching out to the Fantastic Four, but Loki redirects the call to Blake, who transforms into Thor. Iron Man, Ant-Man, and the Wasp also respond, unaware of Loki's interference.

As the heroes converge, Loki lures Thor away with a fake Hulk, while Iron Man and the others track down the real Hulk. Ultimately, Thor confronts Loki in Asgard, overcoming traps and illusions. Returning to Earth, Thor clears the Hulk's name. The heroes, realizing their effectiveness as a team, decide to unite as the Avengers, marking the beginning of their legendary alliance against formidable foes.
