Avengers Vol.1 #16


The battle from the previous issue continues, but the Avengers are hindered as there are too many civilians nearby for them to let loose. Thor creates a dimensional space warp, which transports the Melter, the Black Knight and themselves to another dimension. The Executioner and the Enchantress manage to escape since, as Asgardians themselves, they knew what Thor was attempting. The Melter and Black Knight are easily captured in the other dimension.
