This being a Siege tie-in, it's one of at least four books (the others being New Avengers, Thor, and Thunderbolts) coming out this week that all have basically the same climax: Asgard gets brought down on top of everybody. This issue begins with the Hood and co. bugging out of Camp HAMMER to join the fight at Asgard, pissing off Tigra, who wanted to finish him off (it's almost meta-commentary).
Four scans from Avengers: The Initiative #34. I usually wait until someone else posts before posting again, but it's been a while.
Also building off an incident from #3, Steve fights Taskmaster briefly, but has bigger fish to fry, so he asks Bucky to take him on, since Taskmaster's never fought him. They duke it out for a bit.
Elsewhere, Diamondback and her beau Constrictor watch as the military intervenes against HAMMER (which Rachel observes could only happen on the President's orders), and Steve and Tony engage Norman. Obviously, the good guys are going to carry the day.
Final page: Asgard falls.
Tune in next month.
