From: Iron Man Vol. 1 #260 (1990)
The Avengers are on the run! Until they can be sure who’s on their side, Spider-Man, Captain America, Luke Cage, Ronin, Mockingbird, Spider-Woman and Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers) are using Captain America’s hideout in Brooklyn as a safe house. In the post-Civil War days, the Superhuman Registration Act is still in effect and they are collectively trying to keep the values of the Avengers name alive even though they are living on the wrong side of the law.
After scoring the final kill shot that was broadcast around the world during the climax of the Skrull Secret Invasion, Norman Osborn has become a media darling and director of H.A.M.M.E.R., the national peacekeeping task-force, which includes his own team of Dark Avengers.
The Hood, now in possession of the powerful Asgardian Norn Stones, thanks to Loki, has made a pact with Osborn to have his syndicate of criminals hunt down the elusive Avengers.
Meanwhile, Osborn prepares his forces for the invasion of Asgard, which is now located hovering above the plains of Broxton, Oklahoma.
