Tthe Avengers have been plucked from Viet Nam to the realm of Limbo by Kang who is using the newly formed Legion of the Unliving to get the Celestial Madonna (Mantis) and kill the rest of the Avengers. The first bout is between Thor and Frankenstein’s Monster, in which Thor learns that the monster is not in Kang’s control at all.
Back on Earth, the spectral image of the Swordsman confronts the mysterious robed figure that has been following the Avengers since they arrived there. While in Limbo, the other members of the Legion corner Vision and attack. However, Vision manages to escape thanks to his phasing power, however the Ghost — who can also become intangible — follows after him.
While Mantis fights alone against Midnight, Iron Man and Hawkeye manage to find each other in the winding maze. They are soon confronted by the Legion as well, and Iron Man is apparently killed by the Human Torch while Hawkeye flees to try and find the others. The Ghost manages to catch up to Vision and the two end up battling each other until the Ghost uses his phasing powers to mortally wound Vision, leaving his dieing body for Mantis to be found. This story is continued in Giant-Size Avengers #3.

“Don’t Shake Hands With The Devil!” / NON IMMISCHIATEVI CON IL DIAVOLO
Satan sends an emissary to a horror story publisher so that he will read the scroll of suffering and be transported to Hell as a living man. Satan wants his soul because the stories he publishes turn people away from evil, but he cannot collect it until he is dead, so he puts the curse of Satan upon the publisher to kill the first person he sees (as then he will be executed for the crime), and sends him back. But Satan forgets that the first person the publisher sees upon his return to Earth will be the emissary, and when the publisher strangles him, the body disappears so there is no criminal prosecution.
