(Avengers I#74) – Carl Ryder reported news of the Black Panther's supposed attacks on businesses that supported the Sons of the Serpent. Reporting that there were theories that the Avengers were hiding the Black Panther in Avengers Mansion, Ryder made it a point to explain that he did not subscribe to such theories. He then allowed a video of the Sons of the Serpent's Supreme Serpent accusing the Avengers of hiding the Black Panther to be shown on the news, reminding the viewers that the video's content had not been pre-screened.
