Avengers #49, by Kurt Busiek and Kieron Dwyer
You never really see superhero teams outright lose in comics, usually it's a momentary retreat and it's resolved in a day or two. Not here, this resulted in months of Kang in power. When you have Washington DC get wiped out by the enemy, this moment (done during Marvel's silent month) is pretty powerful. And making Jan sign worldwide surrender, that's got to sting, no pun intended.
