Whoa. Magneto's taken out some of the big guns of the Avengers. Luckily, Thor, the Vision, and the Black Panther remain free to plot their rescue and attack against Magneto. But there's power in numbers against such a dangerous supervillain, so our three heroes discuss recruiting some ringers to help:

Well, that sounds logica...huh? Rewind that by us one more time, Black Panther...?
N-n-n-no, T'Challa, I think I'm going to vote against you on this one. The man we need is Reed Richards, maybe, or Ben Grimm, or if you wanna fight magnetic with magic, Doc Strange. But...Daredevil? Only thing he's got going for him is that maybe he doesn't have a huge amount of metal in his billy club.
The Vision ain't helpin' matters either, though. Oh yes, Spider-Man. He'd be useful against Magneto, what with those metal wristbands Spidey wears and everything. And Luke Cage's big chain. And Falcon's mechanical wings. I'm certain none of those would be a liability fighting against a man who can control freakin' magnetism.
Sheesh. Why don't you just invite Hawkeye, for Stan's sake?
I swear. I luvs the Avengers. But sometimes...bag of hammers.
