The Avengers defeat the Masters of Evil, then decide to retire. Later, Captain America meets with his new Avengers teammates. Shortly afterwards at the new Avengers’ press conference, they bristle at the reporters’ questions.

By Mark Waid & Barry Kitson

APPEARANCES:
Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Tony Stark, Edwin Jarvis, Professor X, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Stranger, Avenger X (Cressida), bystanders

FLASHBACK:
Recap of X-Men #11, no new information.
SYNOPSIS:
The Avengers eventually defeat an Atlantean sea monster attacking the beach, but Quicksilver is tired and can’t run them home, so they take the bus. Cap isn’t pleased that the public is starting to call the new Avengers the “Mighty Pretenders.” Tony Stark gives the Avengers a Jet-Stream Cruiser to use, but Cap’s disappointed it has no weapons. Tony tells him to deal with it. Later, Wanda and Pietro receive a warning that the Stranger has returned, so the Avengers ask the X-Men for help. They travel to Northern Thailand and stop the Stranger from attacking a woman; the woman (Cressida) boosts the Avengers’ powers and they drive the Stranger off. They offer her a place with the Avengers, unaware she empowered them by draining the life energy from others, killing them.

AVENGERS v6 #3.1 (March 2017)
By Mark Waid & Barry Kitson

APPEARANCES:
Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Edwin Jarvis, Mad Thinker, Awesome android, Montana, Fancy Dan, Ox, Kingpin (bts), Avenger X, reporters, bystanders

SYNOPSIS:
The Mad Thinker attacks New York City, but the amplified Avengers easily defeats him. The public thinks the new Avengers are great now, and the Avengers give Cressida the name “Avenger X.” Meanwhile, people around town are dying. Avenger X starts surreptitiously sewing seeds of doubt between each of the Avengers, making them jealous of each other. Quicksilver stops the Enforcers from beating up someone, but Avenger X intervenes from afar and empowers OX; Ox breaks Quicksilver’s legs.

AVENGERS v6 #4.1 (April 2017)
By Mark Waid & Barry Kitson

APPEARANCES:
Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Edwin Jarvis, Wizard, Medusa, Sandman, Trapster, Acrobat, Avenger X, reporters, bystanders

SYNOPSIS:
Avenger X boosts Quicksilver’s metabolism so his legs can heal, but he wants to quit the Avengers (he changes his mind later in the issue, when Hawkeye faux-attacks Wanda). Avenger X hires the Acrobat to impersonate Hawkeye, who then robs a jewelry store. Cap confronts Hawkeye and Hawkeye threatens to quit; Cap calms down, realizing he overreacted, and offers to find out who framed Hawkeye. To gain back the public’s trust the Avengers challenge the Frightful Four to a rematch; during the fight, Avenger X switches sides and empowers the Frightful Four. The Avengers defeat the villains anyway. Avenger X then kills the Avengers.

AVENGERS v6 #5.1 (May 2017)
By Mark Waid, Barry Kitson, Mrk Bagley, Sean Izaakse & Ro Stein

APPEARANCES:
Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, Thor, Giant-Man, Wasp, Edwin Jarvis, Wizard, Sandman, Trapster, Avenger X, bystanders

SYNOPSIS:
The original Avengers arrive and attack Avenger X, but she escapes. Later, the original Avengers have a funeral for the new Avengers; when Avenger X arrives, the new Avengers attack her, explain they were only MOSTLY dead, but Giant-Man saved them. Avenger X gets knocked into the park where the Frightful Four (minus Medusa) murder and bury her. The Avengers come looking for her, but when they can’t find her they assume she ran away. Later, to boost their ranks, the Avengers think it may be a good idea to find the Hulk.

NOTE:
To be continued in Avengers #17!

A6 1.1 overlaps with A 16, then A6 2.1-5.1 happens between A 16-17. Easy! Except…

A6 1.1 doesn’t seem to be aware of TB 9-FB. Both of these comics have a press conference unveiling the new Avengers which result in the press complaining about Hawkeye being a crook and the mutants being terrorists, and then leading into a battle with a villain (or villains). Oops. I’m not seeing any real way to merge these two scenes, so I guess we’ll have to say they’re two different press conferences.

A6 1.1 might have to be the first press conference. In this one, Cap doesn’t know about Hawkeye’s criminal past. In TB 9-FB, Cap explains away Hawkeye’s criminal past to the press.

Slight problem- we've currently got the Avengers' appearances in JIM 120 placed after A 17. Wouldn't we have to move JIM 120 before A 17 to fit in this new series?

Nope. There's a break in JiM 120 during page 7 (Thor fixes his hammer, goes to Asgard then returns to Earth in pages 1-7; he finds Jane missing and checks in with the Avengers etc. in pages 7-16). Basically, A 17 (and most of these issues) happens during the break in JiM 120.

No, I mean that JIM 120 seems to be Thor's first meeting with Clint, Wanda and Pietro. And his dialogue is "You occupy this space as though you belong here!" And they explain to him that they're the new Avengers. So his appearance there takes place before his appearance in 5.1.

Ah, gotcha.

Eh, maybe. But he already knows who they all are (he calls them by name before they "explain" they're Avengers), and he then goes on to describe them as arrogant and whatnot as he runs away, implying he's already met them. It's not that he didn't know they were Avengers, he was looking for his pals.

Besides, if he didn't already know who they were / already met them, wouldn't he have said something like "What are criminals and terrorists doing in Avengers Mansion?" (or something)?

Also, they mention that Cap is out running an errand. If that's a -BTS for him, then it would go here:
