Written by GRANT MORRISON

Theme Song: Iron Maiden - The Wicker Man
"INFINITIVE GAUNTLET" Part 2 "EFFIGY"
•The scramble for the Star Stones continues!
•DOCTOR VOODOO and ELSA BLOODSTONE haven't checked in but DOCTOR STRANGE and CLEA can't wait for word on their success of failure in collecting the Sharkosh Star Stone. They teleport via the Dark Dimension to Brú na Bóinne to search several Irish passage tombs for the the Star Stone of Xander. They didn't expect to find DOCTOR DRUID and the Druids of Black Moors already looking!
•Older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids, the Brú na Bóinne tombs' archaeoastronomical alignments may be key to discerning which tomb contains the Star Stone. Newgrange and Dowth have winter solstice solar alignments while Knowth is oriented towards the spring and autumn equinox. The druids had no success at Newgrange and were on to sack Dowth, so Clea presumes they'll come up short at the other Winter tomb, too. While the druids search, their giant effigies of wood and vine containing drugged men and women guard the Knowth tomb. Can Clea and Stephen untangle the subtle and slippery nature magic empowering these Wicker Men before the constructs awaken to their presence and burst into arcane flame, roasting those inside for fuel as they charge into battle with the divining duo?
•With no sign of the Star Stone-stealing THANATOS and no insight into its true identity, MAGIK's annoyance increases when she receives a summons from NEBULOS, Lord of the Planets Perilous, to appear before an emergency meeting of the dimensional lords! Her neglect of station as the Queen of Earth and Limbo has not gone unnoticed.

“DEMOKRATIA”
Steve Rogers continues to be unstuck in time, though he’s become convinced that his temporal shifts aren’t random. An unseen hand is guiding his journey…
Now he finds himself in Athens in the year 507 B.C. The city-state’s leader, Cleisthenes, has proposed a system of political reforms called demokratia: “rule by the people.” This is the world’s first taste of democracy… and some powers-that-be are not happy. Chief amongst them? Ares, God of War! Ares’ brand of elitism, kratokratia, means “rule by the strong,” holds that only weak cowards share power. And Ares is willing to prove his philosophical superiority… by putting an axe through Cleisthenes’ soft skull! That is, unless there’s a mighty shield there to block the blow! Can Cap save democracy before it’s murdered in its infancy?
In 2022, America Chavez continues to reluctantly work with “Captain America” but has found a kindred spirit in Valerie Cooper, Director of O*N*E*. Val has no love for Arkady Rossovich but can’t take direct action without threatening her life and career. But what about indirect action?
The public doesn’t know about Rossovich’s history as the Soviet super-soldier Omega Red. Cooper leaks that information to a man with unique hatred for the U.S.S.R. An aristocrat whose family was forced to flee Russia in 1917 after the nobility was decimated by revolutionaries. An apex predator who stayed alive and gained incredible powers through unique jungle alchemy. He was born Sergei Kravinoff… but today the severed head of Omega Red will be the ultimate showpiece on the mantle of Kraven the Hunter!
Plus: A Frontlines Op-Ed by Sally Floyd, “Despite Misinformation Surrounding ‘Polls,’ Arkady Rossovich is Widely Supported and Remains the Most Popular Incarnation of Captain America.”

CORPORATE AVENGERS: ORIGINS #1
Plot by EXCITER
Written by CHUCK DIXON
Art by CLAY MANN
In the year 2099, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are the Publicly-Traded Corporate Avengers! This is the story of…
“THE AMAZONIAN”
Jeff Bezos founded Amazon, but he wasn’t content with being the richest man on just one world. His company, Blue Origin, was about to launch him to Uranus - when something went wrong and the ship crashed. Bezos washed up on the shore of Utopian Island, an isolated community of superhuman warriors, where one such warrior - a feral, sword-wielding savage - fought her own kind to keep him alive. She had no name, so Bezos dubbed her… the Amazonian!
The Amazonian was utterly unrelenting: working tirelessly to dominate lesser foes, never resting or taking a break or a vacation and making no time for family. These were all qualities Bezos enforced in his company’s hyper-demanding work culture - making this wild barbarian his perfect champion!
As the Amazonian returned with Bezos to the outside world and accepted employment as his personal security and enforcer, her penchant for violence serves her well - for Bezos’ artificially-extended life is under constant threat! The Amazonian must battle: the Assassin’s Guild, paid by the Legion of Small Business Owners; the Maggia, leveraged by Amazon’s own employees in an attempt to unionize; and Arcade Jr., who turns Fulfillment Centers into theatrical death traps! All the while, subsidiary media like the Washington Post present the merciless death-dealer as a hero!
As the lines between government and corporations continue to overlap until they no longer exist, the Amazonian becomes the “Prime” authority… and on a day in the future unlike any other, the Corporate Avengers assemble!

“SOMETHING EVIL THIS WAY COMES.” CONCLUSION!
In whispered circles, some say he is the original sinner, committing the most heinous act of all: murder! He's lived a long life and gone by many names. He was always the power behind the power. When kings, fascists, emperors and presidents went to war, it was his words that were whispered in their ear. When hatred was born only because of skin color, religion, gender or sexual preference or identity, he was there to light the flame. However, lately he has felt as old as the millennia that he has lived. Power has long abandoned him and he has become a forgotten relic who cannot even command the lowliest creature. All that is left is for him to lie down and die.
But recently, a new sensation, a new power filled his body and given him new purpose(Negation)! He feels strong, stronger than he's ever felt before and with new power comes new plans, new ideas! But he understands that he cannot do it alone. He has recruited an entirely new family who have the means and the will to carry out his vision. BARONESS BLOOD! CARRION! DISTURBIA! MAD MAX! THE CRYING MAN! They are his family now, his future, the ones who will become his legacy. They are...THE RED DEATH! It will take planning and patience. But JOHN APOSTLE has been a patient man for a very long time, ever since he murdered his only brother oh so long ago! Next Issue: New Arc! And Hellfire Is Their Name!

THE MIGHTY THOR #39
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“WHERE IN THE REALMS IS ATUM?”
Chthon’s monstrous pantheon prepares itself for Immortal Combat. Gaea, in turn, has tasked Thor and Hercules with assembling her “God Squad.” Their top draft pick is the winner of the previous (and only) Immortal Combat Tournament: Gaea’s first son and the first of the new generation of gods, Atum.
Over the millennia, Atum had many names, not the least of which were Demogorge the God-Eater… and Amon Ra! Thor and Hercules thus decide to travel to Heliopolis, home of the Egyptian gods whom Atum largely sired and once ruled. There they find not Atum, but the jackal-headed Anubis!
The Egyptian God of Death poses both a unique question and challenge. The question: do Gaea’s descendants deserve their freedom more than Chthon’s? The challenge: Thor and Hercules weigh their hearts on Anubis’ scale against a feather of righteousness. If lighter, Anubis will fight alongside them. If heavier, as burdened with ill-intent, then their souls belong to Anubis forevermore. Are the heroes up to the challenge? Or will they just smash the scales?
Meanwhile, in K’Lay, Balder the Brave concludes his tour of the Dark World Tree. Chthon arranged for Balder to see all the grim Realms and encounter their rulers: the Horror Gods. Balder’s exalted bravery was put to the test, as he bore witness to the the vampiric Ampir gods of Dhampiraj; the Alpha gods from the werewolf packs of Varúlfur; the stitched-together Franken-deities of Allograft; the gods from the blackest lagoons of Yacuran; and the unseen, invisible gods of Iping. His final destination is Chthon’s own seat of power: a floating world-fortress known as the Darque Hold. Balder wonders what will become of him as he’s brought before the throne. But once there, he sees the unexpected. Seated at the right hand of Chthon… is Atum!?!

“NUCLEAR DECAY”
Everything falls apart, when viewed on a long enough time frame. Even atoms.
Professor Chen Lu was the mind of his generation, they said! A mind unrivaled and unprecedented. A bold and radical genius.
Too bold and too radical, it seemed, for his superiors at the China Institute of Atomic Energy. When he refused to simply work on the unambiguous projects assigned to him, his work was buried entirely.
It seemed like he was destined to be a case of squandered potential... until the keen eye of Kenzo Xiu, the head of the Taiji Corporation, headhunted him.
At Taiji, Dr. Chen pushed the boundaries of physics alongside fellow mavericks like Doctor Baron Krugg, Feng Huang and the dynamic Alex Su.
They seemed destined for greatness… but the span of a few years lead them all to infamy.
The first to “fall” was Feng Huang, lured back to the leadership of her family’s nefarious Nüba Jituan. Alex Su’s risky experiments saw him become the bizarre, vampiric DOCTOR SUN. And last, but not least…
The experiment that transformed Chen Lu into THE RADIOACTIVE MAN also transformed Krugg into the fearsome GREEN DEATH.
Lu saw the transformation as a miracle – the creation of living, self-sustaining, clean nuclear reactors. But Krugg thought himself a monster.
You can guess who the world agreed with.

Plot by H-E-D
Art by AUDREY MOK
Giselle Villard was perfectly happy with her life as it was.
Was she any good at magic? No. Not at all. Was that a little awkward considering her status as heir to one of the most influential guilds on Ciress? Perhaps for her sister. Definitely for her parents.
But Giselle was never bothered. Magic was fussy. Magic was difficult. Magic meant long hours studying inside and lots of official things to attend to, all of them boring. The only fun sorcerer she’d ever met was Peter Quill, and dating Star-Lord turned out to be a disaster. And then he ended up becoming the stuffy new Master of the Sun anyway.
Giselle more than satisfied by her life of travel, parties, and generally just having fun. Leave the magic to Genevieve, she thought.
But that was before the CROSSGENESIS changed everything!
Now, a SIGIL imbuing her with Energy Transcendent has been inscribed on her hand. It was fun, at first. She helped make a big shield over Ciress. Thought it would be a one-time thing.
But now people have started expect great, complicated feats from her. Especially because suddenly it seems like the magic is starting to get drained out of Ciress.
Giselle is really going to be in trouble if people find out the reason the magic is disappearing is because she’s absorbing it into her Sigil. 
And doesn’t know how to stop it.
Good news: there is one person she can trust to help her figure it out, in secret.
Bad news: it’s her sister, Genevieve. Perfect.

As with anything to do with Taiwan, international intervention is an extremely volatile matter. Dallas Riordan’s orders to Zemo are very specific: the Thunderbolts are to accomplish this mission in total secrecy. China cannot find out that the United States sent a superteam to aid Taiwan.
This is especially true given that the prime suspect is one of Zemo’s own.
Doctor Chen Lu, their Radioactive Man, has gone AWOL — and he’s suspect number one in a nuclear terror attack off the coast of the island nation.
The fallout signature is an exact match for “Hazmat’s” radiation profile. Luckily, that means it’s completely harmless. But that hasn’t stop a panic from steadily building.
Melissa Gold is convinced it’s a frame job — but if the Thunderbolts find him without her, she can’t be sure that Moonstone and Carnage wouldn’t kill him before finding out!
After shaking down half a dozen false starts, the team finally finds their compatriot-slash-target. Unfortunately for them all, he’s in the custody of the nefarious and absurd DOCTOR SUN!

Same Old Plotter - CAPTCLEGHORN
The big burning F² question about Johnny Storm and Wyatt Wingfoot is answered with a resounding MAYBE. You see, Johnny and Wyatt aren’t exactly a couple. At least not until Jennifer Walters entered the picture. When you have three people where there’s a sexual attraction between any two of them, it seems silly and wasteful to leave one of them out.
In this story you will see the build-up as attraction from Johnny and Wyatt towards Jenn builds up and she is also attracted to each of them. It takes a dinner at La Grenouille and a bottle (or two) of Tequila at the Baxter Building for our heroes to realize that three may not be a crowd.
Guaranteed you will NOT read a Valentine’s Day story like this in any other funny book.

Hercules was cursed when it came to true love. Literally. Hera cursed him to go insane and kill his first wife, Megara. He remarried, and his second wife Deianira actually killed him with a cursed shirt (worst Valentine’s Day gift ever). Afterwards, Zeus elevated him from “demi” to full god - but when the mortal half of Hercules died, so did his belief that he would ever truly love again. That wouldn’t stop him from getting it on, though!
For the next few thousand years, Hercules was a godlike lothario! These are the tales of his most legendary trysts, from embracing the 50 Daughters of King Thespius to partying with Caligula to naked horse rides with Lady Godiva (he brought her chocolates!) to fast times at the Moulin Rouge to being whipped by Bettie Page to affairs with avenging super-folk (we name names!).
But after millennia of carousing, is Hercules finally ready for his third wife?
