Agent Coulson is killed by Loki. Barton is released from Loki's mind control and unites with the Avengers. Loki uses the Tesseract to open a portal to space, unleashing the Chitauri army on New York City. The Avengers fight the army, but they're hopelessly outnumbered. The military launches a nuclear missile at the city, which Iron Man throws into the portal, destroying the Chitauri mothership, therefore killing the soldiers. Thor takes the Tesseract and a captive Loki back to Asgard for judgment. The Avengers part ways, but Fury suggests that they will be needed again. During the credits, we discover the real mastermind behind the Chitauri: Thanos.

More trivia for The Avengers

Question: Why is Loki immune to death? He is repeatedly blasted, beat by Thor, and smashed by the Incredible Hulk.

Answer: While Loki is not immortal, he's just as powerful as Thor, and many mortals would consider him a God as well. Loki is actually a Frost Giant taken in by Odin, but is just as invulnerable to many attacks. There may also be an element of magic involved in his survival as well.
