History: (Avengers VI#2.1) - A giant orange monster rose out of the sea, sending panic through fleeing beach-goers and drawing the attention of the Avengers. The still-new roster of Avengers battled the monster, with Quicksilver running and hitting the monster to no avail and Hawkeye firing an explosive arrow at the monster, unconcerned with Quicksilver being in the line of fire. Quicksilver ducked the arrow and berated the arrogant Hawkeye while Captain America hurled his shield at the monster, also to no effect. Using her hex powers, Scarlet Witch uprooted beach umbrellas and hurled them at the monster, who barely noticed the umbrellas, but when bystanders began calling the new Avengers roster pathetic, Quicksilver sought to prove himself and skidded on the beach, spraying sand into the monster's face, briefly distracting the monster as it recovered its vision. In the distraction, Scarlet Witch focused her powers on the sea itself, creating a whirlpool that churned into a water spout that hurled the monster far out into the ocean, defeating it. Following the creature's defeat, Quicksilver asked what it was and Captain America replied that it was likely an Atlantean refugee that they could've defeated faster if they had worked together better.
