"And Flights of Angels" Part 3 of 3. Script by Walt Simonson. Art by John Buscema (layouts) and Tom Palmer (finishes). Cover by John Buscema and Tom Palmer. The Leviathan's rampage continues unabated across the Atlantic Ocean! The scheming Doctor Druid thinks that Marrina (aka the Leviathan) should be killed, but the Avengers with help from Henry Pym make one final attempt to save her! Incredibly Dr. Pym's plan seems to work after the Black Knight fires a special dart down the Leviathan's throat! But sadly Marrina transforms back into the giant sea serpent several minutes later. And then the Avengers finally accept the reality that all means necessary must be used to stop her! To that end the Mighty Thor brings down the thunder and lightning from the heavens, but again to little effect! Thus leaving Earth's Mightiest Heroes with only one weapon left to use…the Black Knight's ebony blade! Will Dane Whitman stab Marrina and invoke the blood curse of the blade? Or will the Avenging Son use the blade to slay the Leviathan himself? A poignant ending to one of the Avengers' saddest tales. Death of Marrina. Cameo appearances by Kang the Conqueror, Ravonna (disguised as Nebula), and Henry Pym. Avengers Lineup: Black Knight, Captain Marvel, Doctor Druid, She-Hulk, Thor, and the Sub-Mariner. (Notes: The Sub-Mariner appears next in Marvel Comics Presents 7 and searches for Marrina's progeny in Solo Avengers 17.
