Plot Summary

Following a bizarre bank robbery where the criminal cut his way out of the building and left behind his ill-gotten gains, the Avengers are called to consult. At the bank, Wasp runs into an old friend and while the two are talking a mysterious man observes the pair and immediately falls for Wasp. The man in question turns out to be Arthur Parks, the Living Laser and the criminal in question. Returning home and donning his costume, the Living Laser attacks a recently reunited Goliath and Bill Foster in order to defeat Goliath and prove his power to Wasp. Although he is eventually defeated by Goliath, the Living Laser escapes while being escorted to the authorities by Captain America and Hawkeye. The Living Laser then unleashes an improved version of his lasers on the city of New York, sowing terror throughout. In an effort to find him, Captain America, Hawkeye and Wasp enter a building that Living Laser is supposed to be in. Unfortunately the trio walk into a trap, Cap and Hawkeye being trapped in a laser cage and Wasp being captured. As the Living Laser departs with his paramour, he sets the cage to slowly collapse, sentencing the enclosed heroes to death.
