Captain America calls a late night meeting at Avengers Mansion! Three New York City officials have been kidnapped in recent days by Scorpio! And the disappearances are connected somehow to SHIELD and Nick Fury!

After the quintet of avengers are taken to Scorpio's hideaway, they come face-to-face with the twelve houses of the Zodiac!
