"The Demi-God Must Die!"
When Iron Man ambushes the Champions to get at Hercules it seems that old Shellhead has lost his mind. The reasons behind the cowardly attack become apparent when Hercules is lured back to Avengers' Mansion.
The Titan, Typhon is lying in wait ready to duel with Hercules in order to appease the Lord of the Netherworld, Pluto and win escape from Hades in exchange for Hercules' imprisonment in his place.
To convince Iron Man to comply with his plan, Typhon holds the Beast hostage under threat of death.
