Spider-Man is in the city looking for survivors. Spotting the numerous Giant Men, he asks for help only to get some from Hulk. Iron Man brings in the body of Captain America to the Triskelion demanding they treat him. Talking to Carol, he hands her Cap's shield and tells her to give it to him if he wakes up.
At Stark's mansion, Clint tries getting Hank's attention (who is in giant form searching for Janet). He finally gets his attention saying he wants to help since he knows what it's like to lose the woman you love. He also tells him that he has enhanced vision so he could probably have a better chance at finding her.
At the Baxter Building, Ben sits with an unconscious Sue, whose powers are acting up against Ben. Reed has Namor pinned to his craft until they are brought aboard another craft. Dr. Doom is there along with the Squadron Supreme's Princess Power. Doom tells Reed that it was Magneto that offset the magnetic poles and caused the tidal wave in New York and ice storm in Latveria. He tells Reed that they need to get Nick Fury.
Over New York, Thor is in search of Valkyrie. Finding her body, he travels to Valhalla to have words with Hela. She tells him that if he can defeat her army of fallen warriors, he'll be rewarded for a price. Thor begins his slaughter and finds himself aided by Captain America, who isn't quite sure why he's there but says they'll figure it out later.
Clint thinks he sees something and tells Hank to stay back. He finds the Blog feasting upon Janet's intestines.
At Xavier's Academy, Magneto is there to talk to Charles. Xavier says their talk was never this extreme. He tells him his act of revenge for the deaths of Wanda and Pietro won't even the scales. Magneto says he will wash away all of man's destruction in three days. Xavier says he will be hunted down and only remembered as a madman. Knowing this moment would come eventually, Magneto grabs Charles from behinds and seemingly snaps his neck.
