A new era for 'Earth's Mightiest Heroes' begins, and the first order of business is selecting the seven members of the new roster. But this time the federal government is going to help the Avengers choose! Peter Gyrich announces the selections: the Beast, Captain America, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Wasp,...and the Falcon! Hold on, is the Falcon even an avenger? That's what Hawkeye would like to know! Meanwhile, the old man from Vladivostok, Django Maximoff, finally arrives in New York City. And the lives of Pietro and Wanda will never be the same again.
