The Asgardian Loki encountered the Other, the leader of an extraterrestrial race known as the Chitauri. In exchange for retrieving the Tesseract,2 a powerful energy source of unknown potential, the Other promises Loki an army with which he could subjugate Earth. Nick Fury, director of the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D., and his lieutenant Agent Maria Hill arrived at a remote research facility during an evacuation, where physicist Dr Erik Selvig was leading a research team experimenting on the Tesseract. Agent Phil Coulson explained that the object had begun radiating an unusual form of energy. The Tesseract suddenly activated and opened a wormhole, allowing Loki to reach Earth. Loki took the Tesseract and used his sceptre to enslave Selvig and a couple of agents, including Clint Barton, to aid him in his getaway.
In response to the attack, Fury reactivated the “Avengers Initiative”. Agent Natasha Romanoff was sent to Calcutta to recruit Dr Bruce Banner to trace the Tesseract through its gamma radiation emissions. Coulson visited Tony Stark to have him review Selvig’s research, and Fury approached Steve Rogers with an assignment to retrieve the Tesseract.
In Stuttgart, Barton stole iridium needed to stabilize the Tesseract’s power while Loki caused a distraction, leading to a confrontation with Rogers, Stark, and Romanoff that ends with Loki’s surrender. While Loki was being escorted to S.H.I.E.L.D., Thor, his adoptive brother, arrived and released him, hoping to convince him to abandon his plan and returned to Asgard. After a confrontation with Stark and Rogers, Thor agreed to take Loki to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s flying aircraft carrier, the Helicarrier. There Loki was imprisoned while Banner and Stark attempted to locate the Tesseract.
The Avengers became divided, both over how to approach Loki and the revelation that S.H.I.E.L.D. planned to harness the Tesseract to develop weapons as a deterrent against hostile extraterrestrials. As the group argues, Barton and Loki’s other possessed agents attacked the Helicarrier, disabling its engines in flight and causing Banner to transform into the Hulk. Stark and Rogers tried to restart the damaged engine, and Thor attempted to stop the Hulk’s rampage. Romanoff fought Barton, and knocked him unconscious, breaking Loki’s mind control. Loki escaped after killing Coulson and ejecting Thor from the airship, while the Hulk fell down to the ground after attacking a S.H.I.E.L.D. fighter jet. Fury used Coulson’s death to motivate the Avengers into working as a team. Stark and Rogers realized that for Loki, simply defeating them would not be enough; he needed to overpower them publicly to validate himself as ruler of Earth. Loki used the Tesseract, in conjunction with a device Selvig built, to open a wormhole above Stark Tower to the Chitauri fleet in space, launching his invasion.
The Avengers assembled in defence of New York City, the wormhole’s location, but quickly realize they would be overwhelmed by wave after wave of Chitauri descended upon Earth. Banner arrived and transformed into the Hulk, and together he, Rogers, Stark, Thor, Barton, and Romanoff fought the Chitauri while evacuating civilians. The Hulk found Loki and smacked him into submission. Romanoff made her way to the wormhole generator, where Selvig, freed of Loki’s control, revealed that Loki’s sceptre could be used to shut down the generator. Meanwhile, Fury’s superiors attempted to end the invasion by launching a nuclear missile at Midtown Manhattan. Stark intercepted the missile and took it through the wormhole toward the Chitauri fleet. The missile detonated, destroying the Chitauri mothership and disabling their forces on Earth. Stark’s suit run out of power, and he fell back through the wormhole just as Romanoff closed it. Stark went into freefall, but the Hulk saved him from crashing to the ground. In the aftermath, Thor returned Loki and the Tesseract to Asgard, while Fury expressed confidence that the Avengers would return if and when they were needed.
In 1933, at the height of the Great Depression, New York City vaudeville actress Ann Darrow had lost her job and was hired by financially troubled filmmaker Carl Denham to star in his new film. Ann signed on when she learned her favourite playwright, Jack Driscoll, was the screenwriter. As their tramp steamer, the SS Venture made the long journey to the remote and mysterious Skull Island, Ann and Jack fell in love. Captain Englehorn began having second thoughts about the voyage, prompted by crew speculation of trouble ahead.
Deep in the southern waters, the Venture received a radio message informing Englehorn that there was a warrant out for Carl’s arrested due to his defiance of the studio’s ordered to cease production. The message instructed Englehorn to divert to Rangoon, but despite his attempt to comply, the ship became lost in the fog and run aground on the rocky shore of Skull Island. Carl and his crew explored the island to film and were attacked by vicious natives. Mike, the sound technician and one of the sailors were killed. Ann screamed as she was captured, and a loud roar was heard beyond the wall. The matriarch of the tribe vowed to sacrifice her to “Kong”, a 25 ft (8 m) tall gorilla. Englehorn killed one of the natives and his crew broke up the attack and returned to the ship. They lightened their load to float off the rocks and carry out repairs, but Jack discovered Ann had been kidnapped by natives. On the island, Ann was offered as a sacrifice to Kong by the natives. The crew returned armed but was too late as Kong took Ann and escaped into the jungle. Ann gradually won Kong over with juggling and dancing, and eventually began to grasp Kong’s intelligence and capacity for emotion.
Englehorn organized a rescue party led by First Mate Hayes and included Jack Driscoll, Carl Denham, Jimmy, Bruce Baxter, Preston, Lumpy, Herb, Choy, and several sailors. The party barely got outside of the walls before they run into a Ferructus that Hayes killed with his machine gun. The rescue party was then caught in the middle of a pack of Venatosaurus saevidicus hunting a herd of Brontosaurus bacteria, and Herb was killed along with four sailors. The rest of the rescue party came across a swamp where actor Bruce Baxter and two others left the group. The rescue party made their way to a giant fallen log when Kong attacked the rescue party. Hayes, Choy, and several other crewmen were killed after being thrown off the log by Kong to the bottom of the cliff, and the rest of the crew was shaken off the log into a ravine; Carl’s camera was destroyed as well. Kong returned to Ann and saved her from three Vastatosaurus rexes, killing them. Kong then took her to his lair in the mountains. The remaining crew woke up to find themselves in a pit full of giant insects where Lumpy and two others were killed. Englehorn, Baxter and the rest of the crew returned and saved the last four members of the rescue party (Jack, Carl, Jimmy, and Preston) from the pit. As Jack continued to search for Ann, Carl decided to capture Kong. Jack went to Kong’s lair, inadvertently waking him. As Kong fought a swarm of flying Terapusmordax, bat-like rodents, Ann and Jack escaped. They arrived at the wall with the angry Kong following them, and Ann became distraught by what Carl planned to do. Kong burst through the gate and attempted to get her back, killing several sailors in the process, but was subdued when Carl knocked him out with chloroform.
Back in New York, Carl presented “Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World” on Broadway, starring Baxter and an imprisoned Kong. Ann was played by an anonymous chorus girl, and Kong became enraged after realizing that the girl on stage was not Ann. After breaking free from his chrome-steel chains, he wrecked the theatre. Kong wreaked havoc around the city and chased Jack in a taxi across town. He knocked him out by stopping his taxi and flipping it, then encounters Ann again. Kong and Ann shared a moment on a frozen pond in Central Park until the army attacked. Kong climbed with Ann onto the top of the Empire State Building, where he fought off six F8C-5 Helldiver Navy planes, down three. Kong was mortally wounded by the gunfire and gazes at Ann for the last time before falling from the building to his death. As Ann was reunited with Jack, civilians, photographers, police, and soldiers gathered around Kong’s corpse. Carl took one last glimpse at him and said, “It wasn’t the aeroplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast.”
