The Radiator Springs Avengers is a new story.
After reading about the Avengers, who just happen to be Lightning's most favourite superhero team in the world, Mater, Lightning, Ramone and Sarge decide to form their own superhero team: The Radiator Springs Avengers. The team consists of Captain Lightning Bolt (Lightning McQueen), The Mega Tow (Mater), Prince Paintjob (Ramone) and Sargent McJustice (Sarge).
Reading the comic
One day in Radiator Springs, there is a brand-new newsstand opening up, with newspapers and comics to read and sell. Lightning McQueen was looking around the newsstand, along with Thomas, Percy, Twilight Sparkle, James, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy and Applejack when suddenly he spotted the brand-new issue of the Avengers comic book. Thomas, Twilight and their friends are confused. They asked their friend why is he excited about this comic book. Lightning explains that the Avengers are his most favorite superheroes in the whole world. Applejack asked Lightning why he never told any of them about that fact. Lightning says he wanted it to be a surprise, much to the shock and confusion of the three engines and the Mane Six.
Lightning buys the new Avengers issue comic and shows it to Mater, Sarge and Ramone at Flo's V8 Cafe. Lightning reads the comic to them. As he reads the comic, Lightning imagines himself and his friends as the characters. Sarge, Ramone and Mater are all inspired by the comic as Lightning reads the comic, even inspiring himself in the process.
Inspired by the comic
Once Lightning finishes reading, Thomas, Twilight and their friends are impressed by the comic and suddenly thought of making a comic themselves too and sell it at the newsstand. Saying goodbye to Lightning, Mater, Sarge and Ramone and thanking Lightning for reading the Avengers comic, they activated the portal back to Equesodor and disappeared through it.
