* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: Birrah asked Namor for help to liberate Atlantis, and he left with him. All the siege goes on, with Namor absent... in the TPB, at least.

The story is basically [[DieHardOnAnX "Die Hard" in the Avengers mansion]]. Zemo and the Masters of Evil monitor the activities of the Avengers, and overrun the mansion at a moment it was empty. They easily subdue most of the Avengers that enter to it, unaware of the problem, and eventually flee when the remaining Avengers are aided by Thor.

* NotSoStoic: Zemo teared the only photo of Captain America's mother in his face. He stayed serious and collected, and only said "I will remember this, Zemo". But that was ''then'', when there were people in risk and lives at stake. Once the battle was over, Cap was crying with the pieces of the photo.

* TheChainsOfCommanding: Discussed by Wasp. When grieving over her team-mates being decommissioned and Avengers Mansion being occupied, Black Knight consoles her but Wasp points out that it's her responsibility that the Masters of Evil took over since it was her watch. She didn't plan out the defenses or anticipate the situation they were currently in and that makes it her responsibility as team leader.



* IRejectYourReality: Helmut Zemo is convinced he's avenging his father's death and family dishonor despite the Avengers and Captain America telling him that his father was a Nazi war criminal, a culprit of its atrocities, that he got himself killed, and it was him who brought all the difficulties on himself and his family as consequences of his actions. Helmut is too insane and evil to accept this of course.



* StayInTheKitchen: Hercules has left the team, to fight against Attuma, who has invaded Atlantis. The Wasp is a bit angry over this. Hercules says "Facing Attuma alone is a point of honor. But then, I shouldn't expect a woman to understand such things!"
