But before the brotherhood can carry out the prison break, they must trim the ranks of the super-heroes likely to oppose them...the Avengers! The combination of Rogue and Mystique successfully knocks Captain America, Iron Man and Thor out of action! And later on at the stroke of midnight, the jailbreak begins!
