Synopsis for “When Strikes Attuma?”
After disposing of the Serpent Crown in the Pacific Ocean, the Vision is attacked and captured by Atlantean warriors commanded by Attuma. While back in New York, the Avengers and Wonder Man drop the Whizzer off at the hospital following their battle with Nuklo. After they see that the Whizzer gets medical treatment, the Avengers begin to ponder what to do with the newly resurrected Wonder Man.
While at Avengers Mansion, the Scarlet Witch and Jarvis are visited by what appears to be Triton of the Inhumans. Back aboard Attuma’s vessel, the Vision is brought before Attuma who beats the android into submission and reveals his plot to get revenge against the Sub-Mariner by pitting the Avengers against him in the hopes that one enemy would destroy the other. Back at the Mansion, “Triton” let’s slip that he’s an impostor by not knowing where Quicksilver is, and Wanda blasts him with a hex bolt. This reveals the impostor to be one of Attuma’s minions: Tyrak who easily defeat the injured Witch and Jarvis in battle.
The other Avengers arrive home and attack Tyrak head on, but the super-powered Atlantean manages to best each one in combat until only the Beast is left standing. Out numbered and over powered, the Beast makes a hasty retreat, leaving Tyrak and his minions to round up the Avengers to use as living weapons against the Sub-Mariner.
