Synopsis for “Battleground: Pittsburgh!”
Inferno stalks a terrified Tim Turpin, the co-worker who caused Joe Conroy’s death, finally causing the murderer’s own demise when he is crushed by a drifting barge. The creature then menaces motorists on the Liberty Bridge, until Iron Man and Wonder Man, now joined by the other Avengers, resume their battle with the molten menace. Inferno’s real target, however, is steel mill owner Vince Paretta, whose Maggia connections Conroy had suspected and who had ordered his death. Inferno follows the fleeing Paretta to his home, forestalling the Avengers’ pursuit by smashing a trolley car and setting it aflame. The heroes swiftly rescue the endangered passengers, however, and arrive in time to hear Paretta’s fearful confession, whereupon Inferno turns and walks away into the nearby river.
