Summary: The T-Bolts have a brief run-in with the new Doctor Spectrum, whose powers mysteriously fail her. Then...

Looking for a way to place some controls on the New Avengers, the CSA blackmails the Thunderbolts into giving them a spanking. The T-Bolts plan their ambush well and take the A-Team down hard. The New Thunderbolts are Atlas, Joystick, Photon, the Radioactive Man, Songbird, and Speed Demon. The New Avengers are Captain America, Iron Man, Luke Cage, the Sentry, Spider-Man and Spider-Woman.

Blizzard and MACH-IV are recruited by the Fixer to "help save the world". Working for the CSA: Henry Pym (Ant-Man), Carol Danvers (Warbird), Dallas Riordan, Peter Gyrich...and Baron Zemo.

Continuity: Dallas and Erik discuss their past, confirming that, in restoring his Atlas powers, Erik took away Dallas' ability to walk. Zemo makes first mention of the "Guardian Protocols."

Comments: The CSA's plan is a hard sell and the script never quite makes the case. The Thunderbolts fight dirty, which proves both effective and convincing.
