    Mine is the Power!

    Hercules is still looking for clues as to why Olympus is deserted and destroyed when he is attacked by Typhon the Titan who is the cause behind Olympus’ destruction. Typhon was exiled millennia ago by Zeus and has now returned to exact his revenge. Back at Avengers HQ, Hawkeye wonders whether The Avengers are a force anymore without Captain America and Hank and Janet have a fight over food! Meanwhile Magneto brings Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch to his island fortress – a vast sprawling mechanical complex he set in motion through his powers of magnetism before his disappearance. Magneto tries to convince the mutant siblings to join his cause through lies and charm and goes so far as to attempt “peace” talks at a U.N. conference. During these talks The Avengers attack the evil Mutants but whose side are Pietro and Wanda on? Meantime Hercules fights alone against The Titan who defeated all of Olympus.
