Synopsis for "Never Bug a Giant!"Edit

Captain America, The Wasp and Hawkeye leave for South America to help Goliath. Meanwhile, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch realise how badly they like being Avengers and hope their powers return soon. Goliath and Prince Rey escape to Prince Rey's rebel hideout. He explains how the Keeper controls a powerful cobalt flame, capable of destroying the world. Goliath realises Prince Rey only wants the flame for his own desires and leaves him. Goliath attacks the Keeper and gets captured. The other Avengers attack and also get captured with the exception of the Wasp. Prince Rey's forces attack the Keeper's, while at the same time, the Wasp frees all the Avengers. Hawkeye smothers the flame with explosive arrows, destroying it. The Avengers free Dr. Anton and leave. It is then revealed that Dr. Anton can do nothing to help Goliath's condition.
