Last issue the team were discussing their next move, when a defeated Dr. Strange arrived asking for help.

Story Details

Dr. Strange tells the team how he confronted a now fully demonic Hood. He tried to reason with The Hood, when The Hood attacks him. During the battle Dr. Strange is saved by Wiccan from The Young Avengers and the two escape. Back in The Avengers Hideout, Strange tells The Avengers that he is looking for the new Sorcerer Supreme and The Hood wants the Eye of Agamotto. The team agrees to help Strange as he has helped them before and they're also looking for The Hood.

Meanwhile at The Hoods hideout, The Hood is being overwhelmed by his demonic powers. Madam Masque asks him what's happening, The Hood tells her he is in control. Madame Masque tells him that she is there for him and she removes her mask and they kiss, while Dormammu looks on.

Back with The Avengers, the team discover that Ms. Marvel stole a quinjet from Norman Osborn. Spider-Man notes that stealing is wrong but is convinced by the team that they need transport and they're at war. Later in New Orleans the team wonder who will be the next Sorcerer Supreme when Luke Cage realises who lives in New Orleans. In his apartment Daimon Hellstrom A.K.A The Son of Satan is arguing on the phone with his ex-wife when he is attacked by The Hood

General Comments

Aside from the team acquiring a quinjet and deciding to help Dr. Strange search for the next Sorcerer Supreme nothing much happens in this issue. I'm sure this will read a lot easier when the T.B.P. is released. On to the story itself, we still don't know who the chosen one is and aside from hinting it's The Son of Satan we're no closer to fining out

Overall Rating

Not much happens but we do get a nice bit of Spidey banter and a cliffhanger ending which I'll give this an extra helf web for.
