It was clear that the one called Thanatos was involved, but how had he done it?
Beorn spent the morning alternately looking through the footage, reading the records on Thanatos and pondering...
Maelstrom, convinced that Thanos was somehow involved in the Avenger's disappearance, immerses himself in whatever he can learn about the Eternal. Although he has already reviewed most of the material, he continues to comb through file after file, hoping to find some elusive fact that would indicate why he would take the Avengers...as well as why he would do so in such a manner...many of them disappearing all at once, with many others disappearing one or two at a time after that...
On a whim, Beorn contacts the Fantastic Four and checks in on the status of the "Silevr Surferette" that crashed in on their dinner the other night.
Jen Walters (She-Hulk) informs him that she seems to be in a comatose state and, although her physiology is definately non-human, the rest of the team thinks her current state might be a way for her to heal. When she regains consciousness, they hope she might be able to provide further insight into Thanos' activities.
The morning is (relatively) uneventful, allowing everyone the time to rest and fully heal from any outstanding injuries.
Shortly after noon, the Avengers are altered that the recently-arrested Rampage has already escaped from prision, albeit with outside assistance. Apparently the Beetle and Klaw arrived to free him.
Not long afterwards the Avengers are alerted, almost simultaneously by the local police and anyone watching a local television station, that the three villains are in Central Park, screaming to any and all who will listen for the Avengers to be brought to them. In addition to Beetle, Klaw, and Rampage, the group is joined by Goliath (formerly Power Man), Sunstroke, and Tiger Shark - all previous opponents of the Avengers team or individual Avengers. They seem to currently be involved in general mayhem and destruction of the park in order to bring attention to themselves. It looks like some of the Avengers' old foes are looking to prove themselves against the new kids in town...
