This issue opens with a series of shots of the dead Avengers seeing their moment of death. We then see them appearing in the middle of the Avengers in a coma. They are disorientated and not sure why and where they are. There’s some infighting and bickering well they figure out why they were brought back to life. The dead Avengers are Captain Marvel, Swordsman, Vision, Doctor Druid, Yellow Jacket and Deathcry.

Screaming outside interupts them and they realize that they are not alone. Other dead people are now “alive” and wandering the city being attacked by minions of the Chaos King. When these people are “killed”, they are erased from existence.

The Avengers do what Avengers do, except for Doctor Druid, and rush out to help the people. They fight the monsters and lead the people into the mansion to more defensible ground. They are being overwhelmed when Druid summons a wall of plants. Druid did it so he could meditate in peace.

Swordsman gets angered and tells them that they were brought back for a reason, to have a second chance at being heroes.

At this time, the Grim Reaper and Nekra appear. The Reaper, who is now a servant of the Chaos King, says it was he that summoned them to the Mansion. He wants to erase all the Avengers, living and dead, from existence.

Two flashbacks in this issue focus on the Swordsman and Vision. The Swordsman’s has him in Viet Nam, working to guard heroin dealers. He kills a man with a butter knife. The Vision’s has him being questioned by Ultron.
