Story Summary: Director Fury tries to contact the Avengers to save New York City from a giant lizard hell-bent on destruction but gets the answering machine instead. MOVIE-VERSE, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man!
gammathetaalpha’s thoughts: This fun little one-shot features irritated Nick Fury attempting to contact one of the Avengers to deal with a little lizard mess down in New York. Unfortunately, all of his super secret boy band are unable to be contacted, and a certain friendly neighborhood vigilante must take care of the mess instead.
I thought this one-shot was worth mention because it has qualities almost everyone looks for in a classic Spider-Man/Avengers oneshot. The Avengers don’t do their job, but Spider-Man saves the day. I loved the little glimpses at each of the Avengers lives sans chaotic alien invasion. This story follows my criteria for a good fanfiction. If you’re looking for something short and fun, try this one.
