With the life-expectancy of hamsters, and an ever-thinning lineup, the GLA is in desperate need of new blood. But what self-respecting super-type would sign up for THIS!? Guest stars galore, including Brother Voodoo, El Aguila, and Captain Ultra. Plus Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil, and all the other spotlight-hogs you canít get enough of! Oh, and donít forget, in this issue ANOTHER GLAer DIES! Well... besides Mr. Immortal.

What Happens:
While the Great Lakes Avengers are attending the funeral of their fallen member, Maelstrom is busy planning the end of all things. And, when he needs flunkies, who best to call but Batroc the Leaper, Machete, and Zaran?
Meanwhile, Flatman and Doorman travel to New York, NY in search of new members. They get shot down by the new Swordsman, Moon Knight, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil, Energizer, the Living Lightning, the Punisher, Justice, Firestar, Photon, Falcon, Hercules, Cloak & Dagger, Nightcawler, Tigra, Shang-Chi, Black Bolt, Paladin, Sleepwalker, Prodigy, Captain Ultra, Ursa Major, Brother Voodoo, El Aguila, the Awesome Android, Arana, Iron First, and Cage.
After a long night of rejection the two come to rest on a park bench. Two hoodlums try to mug them but they're saved by Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe! And, guess who finally joins the team? You guessed it! Our squirrely pals. At the sound of alarms, the foursome springs into action to find Grasshopper battling Batroc and friends. After another grisly GLAer death, the villains make a hasty retreat.
