Disassembled: The 21 Worst Things The Avengers Have Done To Each Other

Ever since the Avengers first united in order to combat Loki, the superhero team has been there to protect the Earth (and even the universe) from any who might pose a threat. Known throughout the cosmos for their steely resolve and their ability to defeat the likes of Thanos, Korvac, and Ultron, the Avengers are a fighting force unlike any other.

Though there have been many iteration of the team, which in turn means many heroes have contributed to the family that is the Avengers. Yet, like with any family, there are disagreements and fights. Unlike with most families, these disagreements oftentimes include heartbreak, blood, death, and punching… lots and lots of punching. When this happens, it’s not the outside threats to the group that the Avengers have to look out for, but rather the threats that might be coming from within. Whenever the Avengers can’t trust their own something like “Civil War” will then occur. Though the heroes usually have the best intentions, their actions force them to take moral comprises. Regardless, over the many years that the team has been around, the Avengers have done some pretty terrible things to each other and we’re looking at some of those moments!

21. SHE-HULK ENDS THE VISION

One of the toughest Avengers of all time, Vision was originally created by Ultron to destroy the Avengers, who in turn was created by Hank Pym. Though Vision rebelled against his creator and the task itself, he still maintained all the powers Ultron outfitted him with, including super strength, density manipulation, flight, and laser blasts, and invulnerability. Strong enough to take on the likes of Wonder Man and versatile enough to solo entire Avengers teams, there are few Earthly heroes quite like the Vision.

In Marvel’s “Avengers Disassembled” event, the Scarlet Witch went bonkers.

Thanks to her ability to manipulate reality and alter probability, Wanda Maximoff is one of the strongest and most dangerous Avengers. It doesn’t help matters that her psyche is oftentimes fractured and broken. Unfortunately for the Avengers, during “Avengers Disassembled”, she lost complete control of both her powers and her mind. After destroying several of her teammates, the entire time unaware of what she’s done, Wanda’s powers take ahold of Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk. Though nearly as strong as the Hulk, She-Hulk has always retained her intellect and fun-loving personality. However, Wanda’s powers drive She-Hulk mad. Jennifer Walters Hulks out to unprecedented levels and she rips Vision in half, ending him.
20. CIVIL WAR


In July 2006, Marvel launched “Civil War” and it was a big event that promised plenty of changes and it more than delivered. After the villain Nitro blows up a small town, killing hundreds of people, the world is forever altered. Unwilling to put up with superpowered individuals running loose, the government demands that superheroes register and give up their identities. Iron Man leads the charge, and in so doing, becomes something of a dictator. In attempting to enforce his will on every superhero, making sure they comply with his and the government’s demands, he was willing to do anything short of killing.

This included locking up heroes who disagreed with him in the Negative Zone, and even hiring out supervillains to hunt down superheroes to bring them in, to ensure society ran like he wanted it to. On the other side, Captain America lead the resistance, going against the government and the mandates he feels are unjust. This only spurs Iron Man to action and at one point he nearly kills his friend. Finally, after a series of drag-out brawls involving allies punching allies, Cap sees the damage all their fighting has caused to New York and he surrenders. With the war over, the only thing that changes isn’t the world being made better, but now a group of heroes who no longer trusts one another.
19. ERASED CAPTAIN AMERICA’S MEMORY

There’s a long list of things you’re not supposed to do to your fellow superhero teammates, especially if you’re an Avenger, chief among them is tampering with someone’s memory. Despite this unwritten rule, it’s uncanny how often one hero will manipulate or mentally control one of their friends. Though generally it’s done in the name of the greater good, erasing someone’s memory is an ethically dubious affair at best. In leading up to 2013’s New Avengers #3, a small group of superheroes, including Mr. Fantastic, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, and a couple others, have been meeting in secret to determine the fate of the world. Captain America eventually finds out about the group and joins them in an attempt to keep them from crossing over the line… and also because they possessed all the Infinity Gems.

As an alternate reality was about to crash headlong into their universe, the group tried to use the Infinity Gauntlet to steer it away.

Captain America did push the universe away, but the Infinity Gauntlet and the Infinity Gems were destroyed by the effort. When the rest of the team began thinking about more lethal ways to save their universe in the future, Captain America objected on ethical grounds. Realizing they were at an impasse, the team erased his memory, kicking him out of the Illuminati for being, as they saw it, too naïve.
18. ENDED THE WEST COAST AVENGERS




Before the many iterations of the New Avengers or even teams like Force Works in the early ‘90s, there was the West Coast Avengers. The first Avengers expansion team, creators Roger Stern and Bob Hall came up with the group in 1984. While these days it’s easy to dismiss the West Coast Avengers, it actually was a fighting unit consisting of some of the most powerful Avengers. Since the East Coast had everything well in hand, this team of heroes united to take care of problems west of the Rocky Mountains. They were an impressive fighting force, taking on villains like Graviton, Master Pandemonium, and Ultron.

Still, in spite of saving the world multiple times over, it wasn’t enough to keep the team from being disbanded in West Coast Avengers #102, thanks to the core Avengers over on the East Coast deciding the team was unnecessary. Written by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and David Ross, the story featured Captain America and the rest of the Avengers voting to dissolve the West Coast Avengers, believing the team to be incompetent. The West Coast Avengers, consisting of heroes like Iron Man and Scarlet Witch, took the dissolving as defamation to their character and ability to protect. Wanting nothing to do with Captain America afterwards, the heroes quit team projects altogether, before eventually reuniting to form the superhero group Force Works.
17. HANK PYM AND THE WASP

For all the good Hank Pym, aka Ant-Man, has done over his life as an Avenger, it’s arguably his dark acts that he’ll always be remembered for. Aside from creating the megalomaniacal android Ultron, the worst thing Pym has ever done involved he and his wife. When preventing Janet van Dyne, aka the Wasp, from interfering with some plans of his, he physically assaulted her. This act of domestic violence revolted his fellow Avengers. Because of his terrible actions, Hank was subsequently expelled from the team in The Avengers #213.

Around the same time Janet decided enough was enough and started the paperwork to divorce him.

Though the slap would live in infamy and remain a dark stain on Hank Pym and his character, Marvel’s editor Jim Shooter initially only meant for Ant-Man to accidentally knock his wife down amidst an argument. However, the act was made more sensational since there was no time to have it redrawn and the rest became history. To this day, Hank Pym has not been able to escape the phantom that’s haunted him for decades (as it should). Versions of the incident were even reimagined in the modern Ultimates comic line. Despite numerous attempts to redeem himself with the team and his ex-wife, the Avengers rarely want anything to do with Hank.
16. THE CROSSING



In “The Crossing”, Iron Man, through a series of shenanigans, is revealed to be a sleeper agent for the time-traveling villain Kang. Needless to say, things did not go well. When this was discovered, things went from bad to worse and Iron Man’s crime spree begins when Yellowjacket attempts to warn the Avengers about Stark’s upcoming betrayal. She is unsuccessful, but that doesn’t stop Iron Man from eliminating her and the following: Marilla, who is an Inhuman babysitter, and Amanda Chaney, publicist for the superhero team Force Works. Rita is the first to fall as Iron Man finishes her off permanently with a single blast of his repulsor beams, but he’s unaware that Luna, the daughter of Quicksilver and Crystal, is watching from the shadows. As the bodies start piling up, Iron Man tries to pin the murders on Hawkeye, but Luna proves otherwise, and Tony puts the Wasp in a coma as he flees.

The Avengers, realizing they need help, make the questionable decision of traveling back in time and recruiting a teenage Tony Stark to fight his older self. And so “Teen Tony” traveled to the present, became the new Iron Man, and evil adult Iron Man sacrificed himself to defeat Kang. By the end of the event, Teen Tony was replaced by a new version of the adult Iron Man.
15. HAWKYE TAKES OUT THE HULK

“Civil War II” was generally a horrible time for many heroes in the Marvel Universe. Because of Tony Stark and Carol Danvers’ inability to figure out a peaceful solution to the crisis at hand, an Inhuman who could predict possible futures and deciding what to do with him, the end result was several Avengers died. At one point early into “Civil War II,” Ulysses (the Inhuman in question) has a vision involving the Hulk. The Inhuman predicts that someday soon the Hulk will go on a rampage and kill all the Avengers. While at this point Bruce Banner had not transformed for over a year, once the prediction is made, nobody feel likes sitting on their hands and waiting to see if it comes true or not.

After the Avengers learn of Ulysses’ vision, Captain Marvel leads all of the Avengers to confront Bruce Banner.

Meeting outside of his lab, they hack into his computers and learn Bruce has been experimenting on himself. According to Banner, the experiments have kept the Hulk at bay, but once he learns the Avengers have hacked his files and are planning to arrest him, he starts getting angrier. All the sudden Hawkeye shoots Bruce with an arrow, killing him. Hawkeye is arrested and put on trial, but turns out that Hawkeye was just doing what Banner asked of him. Bruce told Hawkeye that if there was a chance that Bruce was going to lose control and Hulk out, he wanted the archer to shoot him with a specialized arrow.
14. SCARLET WITCH TAKES ADVANTAGE OF WONDER MAN



Over the years, one comic mainstay that never seems to go away is that the Scarlet Witch goes crazy… like, a lot. Whenever this happens, she turns on her friends and family and things always go horribly. Even so, the Avengers keep her around. While a member of the team, she had a long and intimate relationship with Vision, but then moved on to Wonder Man, hooking up with her fellow superhero. The love triangle between her, Vision, and Wonder Man, is something that lasted for decades. In spite of this, there was one time when Scarlet Witch goes wild, uses her powers to restrain the Avengers, and then takes advantage of Wonder Man, despite his protests.

Taking place in West Coast Avengers #56, the scene is more traumatic for everyone involved if only because Wonder Man actually did love Scarlet Witch. Yet like any sane person, he didn’t want to have her when she was out of her mind. However, she wanted to have him, and Wonder Man could only howl in despair at what was happening. What, exactly, was happening? The writers made sure to leave it up to the reader’s imagination, but rest assured, it was one of the worst things an Avenger did to any of their colleagues.
13. THOR TAKES OVER THE WORLD AND ENDS THE AVENGERS

Thor’s relationship with the planet Earth and humanity is an interesting one. Though he’s been tasked as the world’s protector, he’s occasionally found himself in direct conflict with its people. Because of his royal lineage and Asgardian nature, Thor doesn’t always see things through the lens of a human, and there are moments where he feels that he knows best. This has led to instances like when Thor almost started World War III, or that one time in the future where he killed all the Avengers and became the ruler of the planet.

In 2003’s Thor #68, the God of Thunder became the Lord of Earth.

The story takes place 17 years into the future and features an Asgard and New York that are on their last legs, having been annihilated in a global war between humanity and the gods. As a result, Thor rules over the entire planet. He makes Loki his chief of security, has a son with the Enchantress, and destroys all the Avengers, realizing they’ll only get in the way of his rule. Even though the world’s inhabitants are now oppressed, Thor’s regime does eliminate things like famine and poverty. It’s pretty much a paradise, except that humanity has been robbed of its free will. Thankfully, things get reversed via time travel and present day Thor is given knowledge to ensure he doesn’t become a dictator.
12. CABLE TRIES TO END THE AVENGERS

In spite of his oftentimes-adversarial nature with the Avengers (and we’ll get to that in a moment), and the fact that Cable is a lone wolf who tends to only hang out with the X-Men if a situation is dire, it’s easy to forget that Cable has been a card-carrying member of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Since Cable time-travels more than is probably healthy, it’s entirely possible that with all the parallel worlds, realities, and timelines, and clones, Cable did in fact try to destroy the heroes after he’d been a member of their team. Yet it must have happened before he ever became a member of the Uncanny Avengers team, as Cable doesn’t always experience things in the correct order. He finds himself confused often, but he’s never let that stop him from doing whatever he thinks is in the best interest of mutants.

In the mini-series Avengers X-Sanction, Cable tries to off the Avengers. It’s all thanks to a bizarre future prophecy from a dark timeline that may or may not come to pass. The Avengers are seemingly responsible for it, so Cable systematically captures the Avengers one by one. He beats Falcon, Captain America, Iron Man, and Red Hulk, and nearly destroys them, only to get taken by surprise by Cyclops, and a couple other heroes, who free the Avengers and defeat Cable.
11. BLACK WIDOW BETRAYS THE ULTIMATES

Marvel’s Ultimate Comics line was a noticeably darker world than that of the mainstream universe. In an attempt to make more grounded stories, characters were written as more cynical, less powerful, and had little compunction in playing for keeps. Not to mention that the majority of problems they faced typically ended in the death(s) of one or more of their teammates. To make things more stressful for the inhabitants of the Ultimate Universe, many friendships they formed oftentimes concluded in misery and lies. This is exactly what happened with the Black Widow and the Ultimates, including heroes like Iron Man and Hawkeye.

In this particular storyline, Black Widow was a double agent working for the sinister group known as the Liberators.

This group wanted to destroy the Ultimates and take the U.S. for themselves. To do this, Black Widow infiltrated the Ultimates and acquired their trust fully after she got engaged to Tony Stark. When she finally betrays the team, Hawkeye’s entire family gets killed, Captain America and Thor are framed for crimes they didn’t commit, and Hulk’s true identity got revealed to the world. From there, Black Widow shoots Jarvis, and almost gets away with her heinous deeds before Iron Man knocks her out with a champagne bottle. Later, seeking revenge for his family, Hawkeye tracks her down to the hospital she’s in and gets her with an arrow.
10. CIVIL WAR II


Coming out ten years after Marvel’s first Civil War, 2016 brought us Civil War II but this time, it was Iron Man vs. Captain Marvel. All the problems the heroes face originally stem from the death of War Machine at the hands of Thanos. At the time, Captain Marvel was dating War Machine and his death left her riddled with grief. What followed was Captain Marvel believing they should punish those who will be guilty in the future, while Iron Man thinks they can’t punish people for crimes that haven’t yet been committed. Their differing opinions split the heroic community down the middle, as heroes take sides depending on whose point of view they agree on, rather than letting Carol and Tony work it out for themselves. Over the course of the series, fan-favorite Carol Danvers, became uncharacteristically hostile and totalitarian.

Eventually, by the time everyone is ready to put the affair to bed, Captain Marvel and Iron Man still feel the need to finish their squabble once and for all. Going headfirst with a punching contest, the battle is an emotional one as Iron Man dons armor like War Machine’s. In the end, Captain Marvel overpowers Tony’s tech and delivers what appears to be a fatal blow. Stark looks dead, but his mind has been uploaded to a computer program, and Carol and the rest of the superhero community act like nothing’s happened.
9. THE AVENGERS ABANDON CAPTAIN AMERICA

After Captain America fell into the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean in World War II, he was never heard from again and presumed dead. Decades later, the Avengers found him, encased in a block of ice, thawed him out, and in no time at all, Captain America joined the superhero group in Avengers #4. It was a momentous occasion and felt like the missing piece to the puzzle, as Cap became a symbol to follow for his peers and he quickly became an integral part of the Avengers and the Marvel Universe as a whole. Though finding his place in the modern world wasn’t easy, Captain America embraced the challenge, like he did with every fight, until he was able to fully integrate with the brave new world he lived in.

Yet as good as everything was, things quickly went south and nearly all the Avengers– people he considered dear friends — quit the team in Avengers #16, effectively abandoning him.

While Captain America was away on a solo mission, Iron Man, Thor, Wasp and Giant-Man took the opportunity to quit the team. Before they left, they recruited Hawkeye, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to take their place, individuals who Captain America knew nothing about and had no connection to. So when Captain America returned, it was to find his life completely thrown for a loop, as the team that once gave him a sense of purpose, had now been outfitted with a bunch of former villains who required his tutelage.
8. WONDER MAN TRIES TO END THE AVENGERS MULTIPLE TIMES

In the early days of the Avengers, Baron Zemo and his Masters of Evil were getting tired of being periodically beaten by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Bitter with defeat, they decided to experiment on Simon Williams, in turn transforming him into Wonder Man. Now a being made of ionic energy, he was bestowed with incredible strength that rivaled Thor’s, invulnerability, immortality, and flight. Though Wonder Woman was originally a villain, a weapon to fire at the superhero team, he came to see the error of his ways and ended up becoming one of the greatest Avengers of all time.

At least that’s how his story should have ended. Over the years, Simon would experience periods of madness. During these periods he’d try his utmost to destroy his friends or be content with beating them into submission. In Wonder Man #17, Simon is frustrated with the Avengers approach in getting answers for some crimes. Choosing to interrogate a criminal himself, he almost kills the guy but is stopped by the Avengers and, angered beyond reason, he nearly murders them all. Years later in the 2010 Avengers and New Avengers series, after a long stretch of time remaining hidden, Wonder Man returns and attacks the Avengers. Convinced the team is doing more harm than good, Wonder Man figures that if he has to destroy them all to get his point across, he will. Nearly destroying the New Avengers, the Avengers are then forced to take him down.
7. U.S.AGENT TAKES A COMMISSION TO END SPIDER-WOMAN

John Walker, or U.S.Agent, began his superpowered career as the Super-Patriot but after Cap gave up his superhero identity in the ’90s, Walker became the new Captain America. He later lost the title and became the U.S.Agent, serving as a watchdog for the government to supervise the Avengers West Coast team. During it all, most of his colleagues despised him, but no one could kick him out since Walker’s results on the battlefield were great. Even so, Walker was a brute. In West Coast Avengers #69, U.S.Agent, after getting teased by Hawkeye, challenges him to a fight and nearly beats the archer to death with his bare hands.

In response, the West Coast Avengers temporarily kick him off the team.

Shortly thereafter is West Coast Avengers #71, Walker is contacted by Mike Clemson of The Commission, an organization dedicated to make Spider-Woman’s life a living nightmare, and asks Walker to kill Spider-Woman (who would one day be his future teammate in Force Works). Walker is lied to, being told that Spider-Woman has become a rogue agent and needs to be taken out as quickly as possible. Believing it’s a matter of national security U.S.Agent takes the job. In the following issue, Walker gets the drop on both Spider-Woman and Hawkeye, knocking out the latter and then moving to eliminate the former. Right as Walker is about to finish her off, he realizes he can’t bring himself to slay the hero, acknowledging he’s changed since he became something of a hero.
6. SHOT HULK INTO SPACE

So long as Hulk and Banner aren’t separated, nobody’s lives are ever really at risk. Yet in Fantastic Four #533, the rogue Gamma Bomb goes off in the Hulk’s face, driving him temporarily crazy. As a result, he ends up rampaging through Las Vegas and killing multiple people. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Maria Hill reaches out to Tony Stark and asks him do something about Bruce Banner’s rampaging alter ego. As a member of the Illuminati, a secret cabal of Marvel’s smartest and most powerful superheroes, made up of Iron Man, Professor X, Doctor Strange, Mr. Fantastic, Black Bolt, and Namor, the group is known for making secret moves to protect the Earth, even if those action cross the line.

With the Illuminati’s help, Tony puts together a masterful plan to banish Hulk, a founding Avenger, from the Earth. First they use a Life Model Decoy to impersonate Nick Fury and get Bruce Banner on a spacecraft, but once the Hulk gets beyond the atmosphere, the Illuminati redirected the ship and sent him to an empty planet, in the hopes that the Hulk can live out the rest of his days in peace. Alas, the Hulk crashes on the planet Sakaar, a hostile and extremely populated planet. Thought he eventually comes to terms with the whole thing, finding love and friendship, nearly all his friends and family on his new homeworld are murdered. Hulk, believing the Illuminati are responsible, returns to Earth, hungry for revenge.
5. STARFOX MANIPULATES SHE-HULK

A former Avenger, Eros of Titan is the younger brother of Thanos. Choosing to go by the name Starfox (because it sounds heroic), Starfox is one of the sketchiest and most amoral members on the superhero team. Starfox doesn’t share his brother’s proclivities for wiping out entire civilization — his hunger lies elsewhere. Starfox likes to consider himself a lover, not a fighter, and aside from super strength and flight, Starfox also has the ability to seduce nearly anyone he meets with pheromone powers. It’s gotten him in trouble on multiple occasions, but he never seems to learn the error of his ways. Starfox woos whomever he wants, with little appreciation over the fact that he’s essentially seducing people against their will.

Though Starfox primarily uses this power on hapless citizens or various space aliens, he was finally caught when it was revealed he applied his abilities on his fellow Avenger, She-Hulk.

In Issues #6 and #7 of Dan Slott’s She-Hulk, Starfox is brought to court, with women claiming that he used his super powers to manipulate them. Amidst the trial, in which She-Hulk is representing him as his lawyer, Starfox uses his powers to get off scot-free. Yet the heroine figures out he’s used his power on her before. Disgusted by the fact, she catches Starfox right as he’s about to leave Earth and continue his horrible ways throughout the galaxy, and proceeds to beat him up, kicking him right between the goal posts.
4. ROGUE NEARLY ENDS SCARLET WITCH




After the whole “House of M” incident, in where Scarlet Witch literally rewrote reality and gave everyone new lives, followed immediately by wiping out the majority of mutants’ powers, her relationship with the X-Men and other mutant heroes took a nosedive. So when both Scarlet Witch and the X-Man Rogue both became part of the Uncanny Avengers, their relationship was less than cordial. It wouldn’t be much longer until just a few issues of being part of the same team, that Rogue would be the one to stab and kill Scarlet Witch.

The circumstances involved Scarlet Witch attempting to double-cross some villains, and she had to pretend to be one of the bad guys in order for her play to work. Captured by Red Skull, the Four Horseman, and the Apocalypse Twins, they wanted her to help fulfill their plan for colonizing an entire planet with just mutants. They wanted Scarlet Witch to assist them in transporting the mutants. Even though Wanda agreed, it really was just a maneuver to get those mutants to rise up and fight the villains with her. When Rogue drops in on the scene, she thinks Wanda has gone crazy yet again, since no one filled her in on the plan. And so, doing the only thing that seemed natural, especially considering the disdain she already felt towards Wanda, Rogue absorbs Wolverine’s powers, and uses his claws to straight up stab Scarlet Witch through the chest. A tad excessive, maybe, but it certainly was a cathartic moment for the X-Man.
3. SERSI DRIVES BLACK KNIGHT MAD

Team romances are not uncommon, especially among the Avengers. Unfortunately, an aspect of these romances that also isn’t uncommon is that many such relationships end in tears, blood, death, or sometimes all three. When Black Knight and Sersi were Avengers, Dane started falling for his Eternal teammate. Unbeknownst to him, Sersi was involved in her own drama, as she’d become mentally unstable on account of the villain Proctor — an evil version of Black Knight — and his machinations. When Sersi became aware of Black Knight’s attraction to her, she reciprocated his feelings.

After a time they decided to take their bond to the next level.

For Eternals like Sersi, this involved the two forming a mental link, a form of matrimony. The bond was called the Gann Josin, and is typically forbidden between Eternals and humans. Ikaris, the acting leader of the Eternals, allowed it, believing the union might help stabilize Sersi. It did, but the Gann Josin had a disastrous side effect in that it started driving Black Knight mad. Bouts of confusion and rage would inexplicably overwhelm him,  the first of which happened in Avengers #363, when the Avengers square off against Proctor. During the fight, Black Knight loses control and tries to kill Captain America. Though the team is able to recover, it goes to show that mind-melding with another species is not a good idea. Even if driving Dane mad was unintentional, it shows a lack of regard for your fellow teammate. The Eternals had the rule for a reason, and Sersi completely disregarded it.
2. ANT-MAN TRIES TO ELIMINATE THE AVENGERS FOR ULTRON

Hank Pym is one of those guys that will forever be followed by bad luck. Nothing he does, no matter how heroic the action, seems capable of redeeming the Avenger and one of the worst things Hank has ever done is the creation of Ultron. The evil android has spent the majority of its life hounding Pym and the Avengers, doing its best to make their lives an endless tragedy. During a confrontation with his heinous creation, Pym found himself on the receiving end of some brainwashing, which regressed his mind from that of Yellowjacket to that of the original Ant-Man persona.

In Avengers #161, Pym sneaks into the Avengers Mansion, believing to meet the team for the first time. However, when he catches sight of the Avengers, he doesn’t know who they are and thinks they are intruders. Almost at once, Ant-Man explodes into action, assaulting the team, and takes down Captain America, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, and Wonder Man, even going so far as to unleash an army of ant on his team. Though they attempted to fight back, his attacks were so overwhelming and they couldn’t get a lock on his size, that Ant-Man nearly succeeds in bringing the Avengers to their knees. All of which, by the way, was thanks to Ultron messing with his mind.
1. SCARLET WITCH ENDS MULTIPLE AVENGERS



While “Avengers Disassembled” was going on, the Vision wasn’t the only hero to meet a sudden and abrupt end. Thanks to some clever manipulations from the villain Doctor Doom (although his involvement would only be revealed much after the fact), by all appearances it seemed like Wanda Maximoff had lost her mind again. With her hex powers completely out of control, Wanda’s first act was to resurrect the recently dead hero Jack of Hearts. Reanimated, and practically a zombie, Wanda has him approach the Avengers mansion where he explodes (dying again) and takes Ant-Man with him. From there, Wanda’s powers consume Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, and send her on a rampage. Despite the efforts of all the Avengers present, they can’t prevent Jennifer from destroying the Vision by ripping him in half, adding another casualty to the list. After Jennifer is subdued, the Avengers have a few moments of respite.

Until, all the sudden, their rest is cut short when Wanda materializes a Kree warship over the city of New York.

Throughout the course of the battle, one of the hex-spawned Kree shoots Hawkeye in his back and his quiver of arrows is set on fire. Realizing his explosive arrows are going to blow up faster than he can remove them, Hawkeye commandeers a Kree jetpack and flies into the spaceship overhead, blowing it up and sacrificing himself for the team. With multiple Avengers now dead, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes disbanded.
