• Opening titles: The Avengers superimposed on a pixelated bowler hat silhouette with lighning strikes coming from behind it
  • Steed walks down the cobbled pavement of a country village, impeccably dressed in a pinstriped suit and bowler hat
  • Sir August and Mrs Peel look at his prize orchid, Sir August's face massively enlarged by the magnifying disc in front of it
  • Evil Emma, in her fur coat, fires a black spear gun at Steed who is off-camera
  • Sir August, with his back to us, addresses a room full of people in different coloured teddy bear costumes.
  • A swarm of robotic drone wasps attack Mrs Peel's blue E-type Jaguar
  • Overhead view of Mrs Peel running around the impossibly Escher=style infinite staircase
  • Sir August is seen on multiple screeens shouting at the World Council, he is in full formal Scottish attire
  • Steed draws the sabre from within his umbrella as he prepares to face Sir August
  • A lighning bolt strikes one of the faces of the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament, causing glass to shatter from all sides
