So basically, this entire issue is dedicated to setting up the story of the Avengers joining in on the whole madness created by Kletus Cassidy aka Carnage as he takes over the world with the intention on waking up the god of the symbiotes by getting control of they refer to as the “Codex”.

So let’s take a look at the preview pages till we get to the good part, Captain America punching the symbiote out of a guy.

Personally, I could pass on this as the story for Absolute Carnage Avengers # 1 seems pretty weak. It does paint a good picture of what Carnage has done during this story arc, even calling in the Avengers and other heroes but not really enough to warrant a pick up.
