What Happens
It's another uneventful day in the lives of the Great Lakes Avengers ... that is, until the Ani-Men (remember them? if not, dig out some very old Daredevil and X-Men back issues) start wreaking havok. Unfortunately, the "real" Avengers beat the Great Lakes Avengers to the disturbance. Weeks later (after the events of "Avengers Disassembled") the Great Lakes Avengers step up to fill in the hole left by the disassembling of the Avengers. They take on Maelstrom (remember him? if not, dig through those old issues of Marvel Two-In-One and Quasar) ... and that's when tragedy strikes! That's right ... a GLAer dies!
On top of all that craziness, we're treated to the origin of the Great Lakes Avengers as well as Mr. Immortal's origin and back-story.
