    Red Raven, Red Raven...!

    The brotherhood made the X-Men their prisioners and Quicksilver is responsible for them. Angel manages to escape, and Cyclops tells him to go to New York and ask for the help of the Avengers. From the island that Angel was on, to NYC, it is a very long way and he couldn't make in one trip, so he lays down on a rock above the ocean. He's very tired and waits for a big storm to pass.

    Suddenly, the rock rises from the ocean and a new island is born. The Red Raven appears and attacks the Angel. Then he explain that he was a human raised by the Birdmen, and when he realized that and became aware of the plans of Birdmen to destroy the Earth, he put the Birdmen military on an eternal sleep and hid them inside this island. At last, Red Raven knocked out Angel and sunk the island again. When Angel awakes, he goes after the Avengers.
