    On the surface of Battleworld, a planet created by the Beyonder in the previous issue the heroes gathered by the Beyonder

    are attacked by the villains the god-like being brought there as well. The villains, armed with weapons found in a fortress on Battleworld,
    managed to get the element of surprise and began winning the battle against the heroes.
    Elsewhere Doctor Doom flies across the landscape recalling the events that brought them here.
    He manages to find Galactus, who attempted to attack the Beyonder earlier, only to be cast down to the surface of Battleworld.
    Doom attempts to get Galactus' attention, but the world devourer merely rises from the ground and walks off,
    ignoring the villain as though he were nothing more than a gnat. With his attempt to ally himself with Galactus a complete failure,
    Doom decides to follow through on his alternate plan. Returning to the massive fortress that the villains had commandeered for themselves
    before leaving to fight the heroes, Doom blasts past the security defenses and gains access inside where the inert body of Ultron is being stored.

    Back at the battle, the heroes manage to regain the upper hand and send the villains in retreat.

    However they manage to capture the Enchantress, Kang, Bulldozer, Piledriver and Thunderball, as prisoners.
    The heroes then go seeking shelter and find an abandoned fortress for themselves where they can detain their prisoners in stasis.
    As they are exploring the facility, Colossus notices that Lockheed went missing in battle and thinks about how his girlfriend,
    Kitty Pride would be upset if they do not return home with the little dragon. After the villains are contained,
    the heroes begin looking around and are surprised to find the fortress meets their every need but is completely abandoned.

    Captain America soon calls a meeting together and begins formulating a plan to capture their foes.
    He sends Thor, the Human Torch and Iron Man out on patrol while the rest of the group finds lodging and food.
    Elsewhere on Battleworld, at yet another fortress, the mutant terrorist known as Magneto has found his own base of operations.
    Watching over the alien landscape before him, Magneto wonders if anyone else feels
    the same sense of destiny that he does regarding the events which are about to unfold.

    Meanwhile, the uncaptured villains return to their hideout to find Doom waiting there for them.
    Still thinking him a traitor for previously abandoning them instead of fighting the heroes, they are about to attack
    when they are suddenly blasted aside by Ultron, who has been reactivated and reprogrammed to be loyal to Doctor Doom.
    Outgunned, the remaining villains have no choice but to follow Doom and allow him to be their leader.
    Doctor Doom then begins sucking up to the Molecule Man, easily one of the most powerful people out of them all.
    When Doctor Octopus turns Doom's attention to Galactus, they pull the world devourer up
    on a monitor screen revealing him to be standing at the top of a peak glowing with energy.
    Doom assures Octopus that plans are in motion so that they will triumph and orders Octavius to rest.
    Octopus complies but suspects that Doom will eventually betray them.
    At that moment, Magneto secretly infiltrates the heroes' base while his opponents are trying to relax.
    She-Hulk and the Wasp discuss all the things left behind on Earth,
    while Cyclops and Mister Fantastic lament about being separated from their wives,
    while Spider-Man and the Torch spend time together.
    Suddenly, Spider-Man's Spider-Sense goes off, warning him that Magneto is in the power plant of their headquarters.
    While he web-slings off to confront the threat, the Torch fires off a Fantasti-Flare to summon the rest of the heroes.

    When the other heroes arrive, Spider-Man has been subdued and all the heroes combined are less than a match for Magneto.
    As the Master of Magnetism dumps machinery on them and escapes, the Wasp tries to chase after him.
    Magneto responds by wrapping her up in metal and taking her prisoner.
    Getting free, the Thing tries to chase after their foe but suddenly changes back into human form, much to everyone's surprise.
    Before they can go after Magneto, Captain America calls the rest of the heroes over to the monitor room where he
    and the Hulk have pulled up an image of Galactus. Cap warns the others that they have bigger concerns to deal with right now.

    Good catch! Man, the comicbook character Reed Richards looks pretty awkward to me without the white coloring.

    Mine too. I also have a soft spot for Ultron Unlimited. If the poll were multiple-choice, I would have chosen both Avengers Forever & Ultron Unlimited.

    Avengers #66 Jul 1964
    "Betrayal!" Part 1 of 3. First appearance and use of adamantium.
    Onboard the SHIELD Helicarrier, Earth's Mightiest Heroes test a new metal alloy called adamantium!
    The metal is so strong that even Thor's hammer cannot fracture it!

    Wow, what would happen if this awesome alloy fell into the wrong hands?
    Regrettably the Avengers don't have to wait long for the answer as the Vision
    steals the adamantium and then ambushes his fellow avengers inside the mansion!

    What a shocking development! Could things get any worse?

    Perhaps only if the Vision's robotic creator were to suddenly appear! An excellent issue!
    Avengers Lineup: Goliath, Iron Man, Thor, Vision, Wasp and Yellowjacket.
    NOTES Ultron previously appeared (as Ultron-5) in Avengers 57.
    This is the first of the five issues that Barry Windsor-Smith drew for the Avengers title (1st series): issues 66, 67, 98, 99 and 100..


    Script by Roy Thomas. Pencils by Barry Windsor-Smith. Inks by Syd Shores.

    Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #3 Jul 1984
    "Tempest Without, Crisis Within!"
    A powerful storm rages across Battleworld and Magneto watches it from his hideout before releasing his prisoner the Wasp.
    When the Wasp threatens to bring the hideout down around them, Magneto suggests that it would
    be a bad idea with the storm raging outside and suggests that they call a truce for the time being.
    Magneto then tries to charm the Wasp as well as try to convince her that he is not the monster she thinks he is.

    While at the heroes base, Ben Grimm and the Torch watch as the storm looses some
    massive rocks that come crashing down toward them before being destroyed by Thor.


    This has Hawkeye and She-Hulk on guard for the moment. When they realize
    there is no danger, Hawkeye confides that he wants to get home to his new wife.

    Elsewhere Iron Man and Captain Marvel also take pause to notice Thor.
    When Iron Man questions why Thor just doesn't stop the storm, Captain Marvel figures he enjoys it too much.
    In the communications room the Hulk, Captain America and Mister Fantastic are overseeing things after the damage done to their
    temporary headquarters, after Magneto attacked, as well as keeping tabs on Galactus who is still standing atop a nearby mountain.
    Reed expresses his concern for his wife who is pregnant and is about to give birth soon.
    The Hulk pipes in about what he will do to the villain who kidnapped his girl back home as well.
    With the repairs Reed excuses himself from the others so he can have some time alone.

    Reed's departure is observed by Spider-Man who remarks on how depressed Reed looks.
    Web-swinging through the facility Spider-Man feels as though it was specially designed for him to do so,
    and briefly wonders if that was intentional before ultimately dismissing the idea.
    He happens to come upon the X-Men who are holding private council with their leader.
    While they discuss the distrust they are receiving from the other heroes, Xavier has decided that his team is going to leave to join up with Magneto.
    Just as he is saying, Professor X detects Spider-Man's presence and tells his X-Men to stop him before he can warn the others.
    Spider-Man fights back and easily trips up the X-Men and flees the scene.
    Spider-Man tries to warn Reed about what's going on, but Xavier uses his telepathic abilities
    to make Spider-Man forget what he heard and Cyclops smooths things over with Mister Fantastic, making it
    seem as though Spider-Man is probably just cracking up under the pressure of being kidnapped by the Beyonder.
    The two heroes share a moment where they express their distress of being taken away from their respective wives before Xavier
    telepathically calls Cyclops back to the group. Commandeering a shuttle, Xavier tells his students to set a course for Magneto's citadel.

    At that moment, Magneto is in a teleconference with Doctor Doom and refuses his offer to join sides.
    Doom warns him that he will live to regret that decision.
    Magneto terminates the call and sees to his guest the Wasp who appears to be warming up to
    the Master of Magnetism in spite of herself and the two suddenly get into the throws of passion.

    While at Doombase, Doctor Doom has two test subjects: Skeeter MacPherran and Marsha Rosenberg.
    Utilizing the devices within the lab, Doom endows them with super-human powers.
    As Volcana, Rosenberg has the power to channel volcanic plasma and Skeeter -- now calling herself Titania -- has been given enhanced strength.
    Doom then brings his newly empowered minions to meet the other villains gathered.
    There Titania intends to prove that she is no longer the scrawny woman she used to be by trying to pick a fight with the Absorbing Man.
    With nothing to prove, Absorbing Man brushes off her insults and Titania storms off in a fury when the Wrecker begins making lewd offers to her.
    Volcana meanwhile seems to find a bond with the soft-spoken and uncertain Molecule Man,
    who opens up to her about what his therapist might think about him using his powers to help Doctor Doom.

    Meanwhile, Thor has returned inside the heroes base and come down to the prisoner hold.
    Passing the stasis units containing the members of the Wrecking Crew and Kang,
    he stops at the medi-chamber containing the Enchantress who was injured in the battle.

    He frees her to discuss things that are "not meant" for mortal ears.
    She agrees and opens a portal to take them elsewhere to discuss matters.

    Soon it is dawn and the heroes realize that they have overslept leaving them open for attack.
    No sooner is this realized do the forces of Doctor Doom launch their attack.
    With the added numbers of Titania and Volcana, the villains manage to not only gain the element of surprise but the upper hand as well.
    Caught off guard, the heroes are forced to retreat, allowing Doom and his minions to rescue their captive allies.
