Synopsis for the 1st StoryEdit
Luke Cage and Jessica Jones are on a date. While discussing all the events that happened after the Superhuman Civil War, Cage suggests to his wife that she go by the name Power Woman. He is refused, because Jessica is worried about what may happen to their daughter.
Suddenly, their discussion is interrupted by Ms. Marvel trying to stop a UFO from crashing. The UFO crashes and out comes Doctor Doom, who starts attacking Cage and Ms. Marvel. He nearly overpowers them, until Jessica intervenes. When they think that they got him down, they find that they're looking at an actual Doombot. Jessica teases her husband for getting beat up by a robot.
Just then, the rest of the New Avengers arrive. Ben Grimm panics and shows everyone that the only way to take down a Doombot is to rip out its operating system in the chest.
Sometime later, the New Avengers consult Victoria Hand as to what the purpose of the Doombot was. Hand refrains from telling anything else for matters of national security, mostly because of Spider-Man's secret identity. But on the bright side, Iron Man and Steve Rogers are happy about the takedown.
Jessica then decides to take on the codename Power Woman. But she then takes it back when her husband shouts, "Boo yah!"
