Plot Summary

As a group of mobsters rob a fur store, they are confronted by a costumed hero calling himself Yellowjacket. After an aggressive fight, the mobsters are subdued and Yellowjacket has them all laid out for the police when they arrive. Meanwhile, as the Avengers prepare for their upcoming meeting, they all take some time to contemplate recent events. Unbeknownst to the heroes, someone is lurking within the mansion. Jarvis, the Avengers trusty butler finds himself tied up as Yellowjacket introduces himself to the team. Even more shocking than this man’s sudden appearance is the story he delivers regarding the Avenger known as Goliath. Yellowjacket claims, in a thoroughly nonchalant manner, that he attacked Goliath and left the miniaturized Avenger for dead at the hands of spider. This is more than the Avengers can bear and they immediately strike at Yellowjacket. Although they get the first several hits in, Yellowjacket takes Wasp hostage and escapes. Back at Yellowjacket’s lair, Wasp is initially dismissive of Yellowjacket, but when he forcibly kisses her, something seems to change. When the Avengers finally catch up with them at City Hall, Wasp shocks her teammates by announcing that she plans to marry Yellowjacket.
