Synopsis for "Breakout!: Part 1"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • The events in this issue take place six months after Avengers Disassembled. Chronological analysis suggests that in the time since the Avengers convened for their last official meeting and announced their disbanding (Avengers Finale), several key events take place:
    • In or around this interim period, Jessica Drew is contacted by Hydra to resume her Spider-Woman identity. She takes this information to * Nick Fury who tells her to accept secretly as a SHIELD double agent. Immediately upon regaining her powers, Drew is then abducted by the Dard'van sect of Skrulls and impersonated by Queen Veranke.
    • Henry Pym and Janet van Dyne travel to England and end their on-again-off-again romance acrimoniously. While still abroad, Pym is also taken by the Skrulls.
    • Wolverine is kidnapped and brainwashed by a partnership of another Hydra faction with The Hand led by the mutant Gorgon. They turn Logan against the hero population and are opposed primarily by Nick Fury and Elektra Natchios.
    • Elektra relocates to Japan and is abducted by Skrulls who then use her persona to position themselves as head of The Hand.
    • Jarvis is kidnapped by Skrulls at some indeterminate point after the Avengers' official disbanding. His alien doppleganger (first appearing in New Avengers #3) alludes to Jarvis taking a vacation during this time. It is presumable that this is true and possibly the circumstance of his abduction.
    • Captain America, Spider-Man, Daredevil, the Fantastic Four and X-Men deal with the fallout of Nick Fury's Secret War against Latveria. Fury is deposed as head of SHIELD and goes underground. Shortly thereafter, he discovers the Skrull invasion plot and begins building his Sectet Warriors team(s).
    • Shortly before the reformation of the "New" Avengers, Cap, Iron Man and Jessica Jones have their initial encounter the Young Avengers and battle Kang The Conqueror on the ruined grounds of Avengers Mansion.
  • This issue spans a very short amount of time, with the possibility of a day or two in between Electro getting the job and the attack. Pages 3 through 22, next issue and the flashback scenes on pages 3 through 9 of New Avengers #3 all occur during the same evening, presumably taking place over the course of no more than an hour or two.
