WORLD WAR ZEMO #1
Written by ALEX DE CAMPI
Plot by H-E-D
Art by CARMEN CARNERO & GABRIEL HARDMAN
ALL HAIL PRESIDENT ZEMO!
He might not officially have the title… but make no mistake about who’s calling the shots in Washington D.C.!
Defense Secretary Zemo’s lust for power brought him to the mind-control expertise of DOCTOR FAUSTUS. Now all of the United States government marches to his tune!
Faustus has become White House Chief Strategist. Wolfgang von Strucker heads up DHS, his son Werner leading ICE. Arnim Zola is in charge of Health and Human Services. Swarm leads the USDA. Kraken chairs the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Department of Mutant Affairs has been established. Tadzio de Santis gives dictates propaganda in the Press Room.
Fascists, white supremacists, neo-Nazis and their ilk are now insinuated into the government at the deepest levels.
But it’s not enough. Never enough. Zemo wants it all!
And what he wants first is the head of those who defy him. The international fugitives / refugees formally known as the THUNDERBOLTS!
When the nations providing them sanctuary refuse to extradite them, Zemo declares WAR!
MADRIPOOR.
ATLANTIS.
VANAHEIM.
SHARZHAD.
These nations face the full might of the USA — and more! Zemo’s personal superhuman army, the REDEEMERS, have swelled in size and rank!
Not to mention that Zemo has hosts of EKO Scorpion mercs hopped up on MGH and armed with experimental tech.
There’s one more nation at war with Zemo — the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA itself!
With Zemo’s forces divided around the world, the time has come for the domestic resistance to strike!
There’s one man at the head of the resistance… and you might say he’s the expert on punching Nazis!
That’s right — Steve Rogers has returned, and he doesn’t like what he sees!
Is Captain America a bad enough dude to save the President?
And with what Zemo has up his sleeves… will that even be enough

Written by JIM STARLIN

“SECOND COMING”
In a flash of Light, Everything changes. Not an end, but a new beginning, crossing all of time and space
Then, at the end of the great war, Adam Warlock sacrificed himself to break the God Seal and unleashed an uncanny energy wave. The energy wave crossed the cosmos and reached the cocoons sitting a dark corner of the galaxy. And they began to crack.
Now, Adam Warlock has been ressurected from his Cocoon many cycles ago, but he is still not sure why.
There are rumors of other Golden Boy sightings just like Adam Warlock across the galaxy.
Most of them are described as less civilized, even savages, perhaps more like "Him"self during his earliest days.
A distant world of swords and magic, "Him" attacks the ancient city and takes the princess.
Another world at the edge of the galaxy, "Him" selflessly defends the weak villagers from the monsters.
On a world ruled by the Universal Church of Truth, "Him" is worshipped as a god, followed by a great church army.
Bathed in blood and wine, "Him" is celebrated as the best gladiator in the rebuilding Shi-ar Empire.
And Adam wakes up from his dreams.
He received a prophecy before in the Infinity Well in the realm of death, what could these premonitions mean?
It's time to find out!

ANUBIAS
As King of Atlantis, Namor has come to expect stupidity from the surface world… but Zemo’s declaration of war surpassed even his expectations.
He’s not sure what’s more embarrassing — that Zemo is declaring war over somebody who isn’t even in Atlantis anymore… the fact that America has been taken over by white supremacists.
After all… once upon a time, he put a lot of effort into helping the Americans beat the Nazis.
History repeats itself in more ways than one as Zemo sends Meranno, the vile U-MAN, to lead his attack on Atlantis!
U-Man delusionally believes that Atlantis is the heir to a lost Aryan utopia — one he is destined to restore!
And he’s brought REDEEMERS like Doctor Hydro, Mako and Tiger Shark with him to topple Namor’s regime!
Even with trusted allies, like Tamara Rahn and Andromeda, and beloved family, Namora and Namorita (no longer the gestalt being called Namorella, don’t worry about it), at his side, Namor’s advisor Vashti urges him to take Meranno’s threat seriously.
Namor makes some dangerous alliances — can Attuma and Krang be trusted?
And what is Meranno planning with the turncoat known as Vyrra, better known on the surface as Doctor Dorcus?

CAPTAIN AMERICA #50 *World War Zemo tie-in*
Plot by EXCITER
Written by FRANK MILLER
Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
Historic 50th issue marks the return of Steve Rogers!
“BACK IN RED, WHITE & BLUE”
As the clock ticks over from the year 2099 to the year 2100, Steve Rogers, Jake Gallows, and the Free Radicals have finally toppled the corporate oligarchs that usurped control of the nation! After the “New Year’s Revolution,” Google Android lies in pieces, the Amazonian is trapped in her own fourth-dimensional warehouse, and the people of the United States are set to elect a new president - instead of a board-appointed C.E.O. - for the first time in decades! The spirit of 1776 has returned to the future, and Steve Rogers is pleased at a job well done!
Until it all changes.
Suddenly, the United States is a fascist and totalitarian regime in a constant state of expansionist war. Literal Nazis are in power, with a fortress on Wall Street and a “Captain Axis” spouting their virtues. This is all horrifyingly shocking until Steve sees the man in charge - a führer with a supposedly grand lineage named Heinz Zemo - and then he knows exactly what happened. Helmut Zemo did something to change the past - and, since Cap is from the past, he’s the only one that notices!
Steve’s been a man out of time for two years by our counting (since CAPTAIN AMERICA #27!), but it’s been so much longer from his perspective. He formed the Brotherhood of the Shield with Conan in the Hyborian Age, defended nascent democracy in Ancient Athens from Ares, fought with Robin Hood to save the Magna Carta, battled superhuman redcoats alongside the Founding Fathers, and struggled against Frankenstein monsters during World War II, to name just a few of his temporal exploits, before ultimately returning to save 2099 (see previous issues!). But no other distractions can keep him away. Steve can wait no longer. He must go back in time 77 years and stop whatever Zemo did! He just needs to figure out how to do that…

The Array's creator is Shiro Yoshida, also known as SUNFIRE, so he knows a thing or two about solar power. Shiro is openly a mutant, part businessman, part socialite, part Japanese national superhero, part environmental activist, and he intends to help change the way many humans view mutants.
•What the world doesn't know is that Sunfire is also Crimson King of the Outer Sphere: mutant royalty who leverage their political, financial, and genetic powers to make the world safer for mutants. And the world needs them now more than ever.
•When one of the Amaterasu earth stations temporarily went gone dark after an uusual energy surge in the solar transfer beam, there was no cause for concern.
•When a memo reassigned Hinomaru Corp.'s top mutant technopaths and technokinetics to that earth station, one or two eyebrows were raised. When a decent chunk of Japan's internet capacity began flowing through that earth station, no one realized since BLACK BOX, FRANCISCO MILAN, HIJAK, and PARADIGM were doing their new jobs. When the previously unknown corporation HEXUS is on the cusp of simultaneous hostile takeovers of Roxxon, Hinomaru, Da Costa International, Alchemax, Brand Corporation, Frost International, and even Stark Industries, the Outer Sphere turn their attention to the problem.
•While Crimson Knight M searches through petabytes of data, her twin and fellow Crimson Knight PENANCE dimensionally shifts from shell location to shell location in search of the Hexus nexus.
•And what corporate takeover is complete without a dinner party? With the heads or representatives of the compannies at stake invited to the roof deck of Madripoor's exclusive Sovereign Hotel, Sunfire and Teresa Cassidy, the Crimson Queen SIRYN, decide to face their adversaries directly. They didn't expect the entire hotel staff and many guests to be techno-organic monstrosities bent on either assimilating them or dismembering them!

F² #17
Written by KIERON GILLEN
Plot by CAPTCLEGHORN
Art by JAMIE MCKELVIE
“!”
Diablo the Demon from the Fifth Dimension is defeated and the heroes of the F² Foundation stand ready to stand with or fight whoever in the battle between the 4 dimensional TVA and the invaders from five and six dimensional realms. The consensus from the team is to hold back and wait to pick a side.
Henry Pym is not playing that game, though. He goes in, makeshift guns blazing, adding and subtracting mass from the 4, 5, and 6 D beings battling. His Pym Particles which allow him to take or send eight dimensional dark matter into or from his body are weaponized and fired into this foes.
At first, the attack appears to work as the armies are caught and feeling the effects of growth and shrinkage. But it’s painful and although it works smoothly for a 3D being, using it on 4 or greater D beings is like putting a flat sticker onto an irregular three dimensional object. Wrinkles and no smooth fit.
Desperate to stop the pain, the TVA and their attackers use a doomsday device. Once there were realities with up to 11 dimensions. Now there is only a point. The only zero dimensional construct.
The Dimension War concludes next issue.

THE MIGHTY THOR #50

  • World War Zemo tie-in*

Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
Historic 50th issue marks the return of Thor!
“ON MIDGARD, AS IT IS IN HEL”
Baron Zemo has not only usurped control of the United States, he’s also usurped custody of Magni and Modi Thorson!
As Zemo sees it, the Teutonic Gods were once the patron deities of conquering vikings and berserkers. They brought strength and power to every region that worshipped them. Then weak Latin Christianity spread like a creeping disease throughout Europe. Ironically, this caused even the gods themselves to lose their way and become feeble. Odin could not even maintain control over the Nine Realms, and his shameful heir Thor granted them each independence. Pathetic! Zemo will personally remind the gods what it means to be Aryan. With the Enchantress (or is that the “Emerald Witch”?) by his side, he will raise Thor’s twins to be true heroes - like the Baron himself!
In Valhalla, a thunderous cry shakes the very foundations of the afterlife: “ZEMOOOOOOOO!!!!” The All-Father King Thor fell in battle nine months ago (see THE MIGHTY THOR #41) and Asgard has been attempting to pick up the pieces ever since. Yet now the unthinkable has happened. A mad villain has kidnapped his beloved sons and plots to warp their young, impressionable minds with a vile and corrupt ideology. Thor says thee nay! He will defy death itself to ensure this does not happen!
Seeing no other choice, Thor seeks audience with the ruler of Hel: the goddess of death, Hela! Fortunately for Thor (or perhaps unfortunately), Hela is eager to bargain and more than willing to restore Thor to life so that he can combat Zemo on Midgard. In return, she has but a few “small” demands. What does she want - and is Thor willing to pay the price?

Meanwhile, General Thaddeus Ross has been the “official” Hulk for some time now. Yet Zemo has rejected all of Ross’ non-Aryan Avengers teammates. Thaddeus, however, Zemo is willing to keep… provided that he pledges his loyalty. But Thunderbolt Ross’ father Alexander Ross fought Nazis during World War II, and Thaddeus will be damned if he’ll help their descendants conquer America now! Red Hulk smash!

While one of them is also serving in the US Government under Zemo, there are two others, Andreas and Andrea, known as the Fenris Twins with powers. Although killing the twins may not matter to Strucker, knowledge that he doesn’t care about them could hurt the popularity of the Zemo movement.
Just north of the USA is a nation known as Canada. Canada, understandably, is somewhat concerned with the proliferation of pseudo-nazis in the US cabinet. Jeanne-Marie Beaubier aka Aurora and her twin brother Jean-Paul Beaubier aka Northstar are mutants summoned by the Canadian government to investigate the situation and take whatever steps are necessary to keep the nazis south of the border.

At that time, Fu Manchu and Shang had left going back to their retreat deep in China. She is left alone until she discovers Sir Denis Nayland Smith of MI-6 and Phil Coulson of ARROW are actually working together to track her.

“BURNING BRIGHT”
Jessán Hoan was a banker before she became “Tyger Tiger,” a legend of the Madripoorian criminal underground. She was instrumental in ousting the cybernetic Reavers from power - a feat that made her so popular, she was elected Chancellor!
But heavy is the head that wears the crown. For months, she’s fended off indirect acts of hostility from a nation that lusts to acquire Madripoor’s assets: China (see NEGATION: THE HOME FRONT #4, CAPTAIN AMERICA #35). After Chen Lu helped expose China’s plan to frame Taiwan for a nuclear disaster (see THUNDERBOLTS #17-18), Tyger Tiger granted Lu asylum in Madripoor as an act of political oneupmanship. She could not have anticipated that her longtime ally, the United States, would subsequently be taken over by an insane zealot like Helmut Zemo - who would then declare war on her small southeast Asian island nation just to get revenge on the “Radioactive Man!”
F$&@ it.. Madripoor isn’t giving Radioactive Man up. Tyger has been strengthening the nation’s defenses for months in preparation to counter a Chinese attack, and she has more than a few surprises up her sleeves. She’s prepared to handle this invasion like she would have handled a rival gang moving in on her turf back in the day. Any hostile entity who sets foot on Madripoorian soil will never leave. She’ll bury them here!
But does the Mandarin, to whom the apprehension of the treacherous Radioactive Man is already a priority, see Zemo’s invasion of Madripoor as a potential opportunity for China?

ULIK THE TROLL: WORLD WAR ZEMO
Plot by EXCITER
Written by CHRISTOPHER YOST
Art by RYAN OTTLEY
“ALL TROLLS WELCOME HERE”
Trolls. A once noble race that has long been manipulated by malevolent forces into conflicts with the gods themselves… conflicts that typically went poorly for the trolls. After their homeland was lost and their invasion of Asgard was halted, the trolls were placed in internment camps on Vanaheim by Odin(as revealed way back in the Mighty Thor #0 & 1!). One troll, however, never surrendered.
Ulik led his people to escape the camps, eventually teaming up with Thor against a rampaging Hulk and earning the god of thunder’s respect. The trolls were subsequently granted part of Vanaheim as their new homeland (see the Mighty Thor #4). “Trollheim” is now a haven for all trolls, regardless of tribe, and Ulik is their High Chieftain… and champion.
When Ulik learns that a half-troll named Gunna (codenamed, appropriately, “Troll”) seeks asylum in Vanaheim (see NO MORE THUNDERBOLTS #3), he takes interest. Having learned that Gunna magically arrived in the city of Zanadu in the Mystic Mountains just outside Trollheim’s borders, Ulik personally leads a “diplomatic” band to ensure her safety and offer her a homeland. This band consists of Ulik’s brother Horth, Ulik’s mate Ulla, the wise elder crone Askella, and the brave warriors Gaark and Ud. He can’t be too careful, for Ulik has heard many strange things about Zanadu…
However, Ulik isn’t the only one interested in Gunna. She’s only half troll. Her other half is Vanir. In fact, she is the lost niece of Hogun the Grim, member of the famed Warriors Three. Hogun was born in Zanadu and suspects his late sister told Gunna much about their birthplace, which is why she returned there. Accordingly, he returns alongside Fandral and Volstagg to claim custody of his wayward niece. And he’s quickly reminded of why he left…
Yet little do Ulik or Hogun know, Vanaheim is about to be invaded by Zemo’s forces from Midgard! They, too, want Gunna… but they want her dead!

•CYCLOPS and JEAN GREY haven't been seen for a few days. They've barely left their suite except for food. The Phoenix seems to have ignited quite the fire within them.
•One of the few things left with any power aboard fallen Asteroid X (renamed X-Isle) was a small cube taken from the CRIMSON PIRATES. Safely tucked away in Xavier's safe, the box begins to glow.
•And on the other side of the world... Hong Kong police investigate the slaughter of a mutant family recently returned from X-Isle. Will an Interpol investigation lead authorities to Xavier's door?

When Melissa Gold, the SONGBIRD, decided to escort the young Gunna Sijurvald home to Zanadu in Vanaheim, she prepared herself for the bizarre.
But life has managed to surprise her even still.
She didn’t realize, for instance, that Zanadu was ruled by the despotic Mogul of the Mystic Mountain.
She didn’t know that Ulik the Troll ruled a different swath of territory.
And she certainly didn’t expect a neo-Nazi invasion to follow her across realms.
Melissa might not exactly be Orthodox… but she’s still Jewish. She doesn’t take that sort of thing lightly.
The enemy of an enemy is a friend… and there’s no confusion about who the villain is!

X-MEN: SILVER #1

LUPIN
The chaos of WORLD WAR ZEMO thrust the Age of Marvel’s secret mutant heroes into the spotlight!
After retiring from the Ultimates, the telepathic KARMA was inspired by the Uncanny X-Men to form her own team of mutant defenders!
Recruiting the powerhouse ROGUE (been a long time since MARVEL SWIMSUIT SPECIAL!), the cryonic ICEMAN, the teleporting SILHOUETTE, the versatile MERCURY, and the disc-slinging RICOCHET, along with a top of the line support staff (fully salaried), Karma leads the team she calls X-MEN SILVER.
(She’s sure Charles Xavier would approve, but has copyright lawyers on hand just in case)
For a long time, they’ve operated under the radar, providing aid to mutants worldwide.
How have they stayed secret? Well, it helps when your benefactor is rich enough to build you a base on Mons Esam – a mountain on the moon
But with Zemo’s ascent in the United States has come an unprecedented wave of anti-mutant violence and legislation. Moon base or no, Karma’s X-Men can’t help be noticed!
Cameron Hodge, newly confirmed Secretary of Mutant Affairs, thought he was ready one team of X-Men.
But two? That’ll require outside help. And he’s found it in the form of the paramilitary SAPIENS LEAGUE, lead by the nasty power couple of the LEPER QUEEN and HATE-MONGER!
Welcome to Zemo’s America — hope you survive the experience!
