The Exemplars are keeping Juggernaut prisoner, for crimes against the others in previous adventures. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver confront each other about him joining their father in Genosha. The Avengers gather an all-star team to confront the Exemplars, consising of Avengers, Captain America, Wasp, Giant-Man, Scarlet Witch, Wonder Man, Hercules, Thor, Firestar, Justice, Quicksilver, Iron Man, and Spider-Man, along with the New Warrior Nova. They confront the Exemplars and are defeated, except Captain America. Captain America eventually nearly convinces them all to return to their former selves. In panic, Bedlam turns them all back to their more violent selves and they retreat.
In the end of the issue, Thor assaults a pushy cameraman with his hammer, and an angry Captain America leaves the team.
