WORLD WAR ZEMO #2
Written by ALEX DE CAMPI
Plot by H-E-D
Art by CARMEN CARNERO & GABRIEL HARDMAN
WELCOME TO THE NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION!
Captain America leads the charge to rescue his homeland from itself!
He needs to rescue the President of the United States if he’s going to have a chance of breaking Doctor Faustus’ mind control. But there’s a major obstacle in the way.
Can the Vibranium-Steel Shield hold up against the Adamantine Axe of Ares?
Steve Rogers takes on the God of War on the steps of the White House!
Even if he succeeds, the Revolution needs more than just a president – it needs boots on the ground. And Steve’s allies have a lead on a good source. They join up with Karma’s “Silver” X-Men to liberate one of Sct. Cameron Hodge’s mutant detention camps — which happens to be where the former Thunderbolt ARCHANGEL is being kept!
If that sounds too good to be true, well, it is. WARBIRD and SCARLET SPIDER were on-hand to transfer Archangel to the personal custody of Sct. Hodge. Time for the former Thunderbolts to clash!
Where is Zemo while this is happening?
Well, as a veteran soldier himself, he felt some nostalgia for the frontlines.
Zemo trusts U-Man to handle Atlantis, while Amora and D.O.A. are handling the Asgard-Vanaheim side of the conflict. The situation in Madripoor is too volatile at the moment, with concerns the Mandarin might intervene on behalf of China.
Where does that leave Zemo, then?
That’s right, Zemo has touched down on Sharzhadi territory — where Dagan Shah, the SULTAN MAGUS, grants refuge to the turncoat Agent Dallas Riordan!
Empowered by the extraterrestrial technology he unearthed beneath the desert, Dagan Shah is practically a demigod.
Against the Sultan Magus in a fair fight, Zemo doesn’t have a chance.
But like any fascist… Zemo doesn’t fight fair.

After the call ends, he asks Queen Zanda, T'Zari's mother to come with him that they may speak in private. Zanda looks at T'Challa and sees the sadness in his eyes. She asks him what's wrong and if there is anything that she can do. T'Challa looks at her and says yes, there is something that she can do. She can tell him who helped her.
Stunned, Zanda says that she's not sure what he's talking about. He asks her again, who helped her with this lie. With panic beginning to show in her voice and tears in her eyes Zanda denies knowing anything about a lie. T'Challa looks at her and then he looks into the room where T'Zari is playing and tells her "That is the lie, T'Zari is not my son.". T'Challa tells her that he does not blame her for the deceit but he knows the truth and he wants answers!
T'Zari is one of the most advanced synthetic lifeforms that he has ever seen, one that would make you believe that he is flesh and blood. He fooled all biological sensors and DNA tests. But there was one person that T'Zari could not fool...Bast! When all who wore the mantle of Black Panther would have children, Bast would appear at some point with her blessings. T'Challa waited for weeks but Bast never appeared. He played along to find the answers he was looking for and hoped that Zanda would tell him the truth.

He’s also already made contact with the “Silver” X-Men, the Raksha of Madripoor, Israel’s Sabra, and Valarie Cooper’s loyalists from the now defunct Office of National Emergency. He’s ready for war!

And despite all this, will Steve need to assemble more help?

“Getting to the Point!”
Our cast is trapped in a zero dimensional point. No width, no depth, no length, and time may no longer exist. Along with combatants from four, five, and six dimensional realms, they are desperately trying to escape. Johnny Storm comes up with the idea of “Hey, remember the big bang? All of the universe exploding from a single point? Why can’t we do that?” And although recreating the universe from another big bang is a trope, the team tries it and fails by page four.
How will how heroes and villains escape? Or do the other dimensions still exist even though everyone is trapped? Oh, and have we mentioned that the characters fighting the Dimension War aren’t alone and others are trapped with them? We haven’t? Consider it mentioned then.
And if there’s an escape, can the hostilities be resolved, or will we be caught in an infinite time loop. Or, more likely, just continue fighting. Although Reed and Hank are kinda thinking a time loop would be interesting.
The Dimension War FINALLY concludes.

“OLD DOGS”
From an imperfect future comes the Maestro, a Bruce Banner turned merciless and aggressive by time and loss. He’s convinced Baron Zemo that he should be “the Hulk” of the Redeemers, though in actuality the Maestro sees Zemo as only a means to an end. The only true supremacy is green supremacy.
Of course, this has brought him into conflict with another elder statesman turned Hulk: Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, the Red Hulk. Maestro remembers wanting to kill Ross for years as a younger man, but being too constrained by childish “morality” and “love” to do so. He is no longer so constrained… and he accepts Zemo’s request to personally put the old dog down!
Unfortunately, Ross has friends. He and a crew of punks had been masquerading as heroes before Zemo made it cool. “Captain America” Omega Red, “Black Widow” Deadly Nightshade, “Winter Soldier” Steel Serpent, and “Spider-Man” Tarantula all have Red Hulk’s back. This will make Maestro’s fight all the harder…
And what’s the current year Bruce Banner (Professor Hulk of Empire State University) going to do when he learns of Zemo’s “Hulk”?

Andreas and Andrea Strucker, known as the Fenris Twins see how their father toils to aid Zemo. From their birth, their father Wolfgang Von Strucker had talked of the superiority of the Strucker line. The baron serving as a lackey is unacceptable. Zemo has some basic thoughts correct, but he accepts too many into his supposed elite class. The Fenris Twins with their Aryan makeup and their super powers are far superior to any mere blond and blue-eyed nazi. Zemo finds one of his facilities attacked and destroyed with the word SCHWINDLER burnt into the earth in 10 meter tall letters.
Sir Denis Nayland Smith of MI-6 and Phil Coulson of ARROW are puzzled at this development and are unsure of if this is the work of friend, enemy, or enemy of our enemy. Coulson is feeling pressure from factions of the US Government to select the right path. Smith takes a meeting with the Beaubier twins from Canada where they give him a startling breakdown of the potential Canadian responses.
Shang Chi is following his father’s wishes and hunting the Strucker twins. Shen Qi stays close to her “brother” (still unresolved) as Fu Manchu’s wishes have occasionally been in the world’s best interest as was seen in the second world war.

Zemo may have awakened a sleeping dragon! The island nation of Madripoor is small but incredibly tough, as its wartime Chancellor Tyger Tiger is proving. Her conventional defense force is doing well at holding back the American advance - but Zemo has unconventional forces at his disposal…
The Fantastic Force (f.k.a. The U-Foes) are the first “family” of the Redeemers. They bring substantial and lethal powers to the battlefield. Fortunately, Tyger Tiger had been working on a Madripoorian superhuman team of her own! Enter the Raksha: Gazing Nightshade, who can induce fear with a look; Hexadecimal, technopath with the ability to control machines; and Whisper Doll, power nullifier. Can these homegrown heroes hold the line against an evil F²?
Meanwhile, Tyger is personally keeping an eye on Chen Lu, the Radioactive Man. He is, after all, Zemo’s target. But not just Zemo’s… The Mandarin wants Chen Lu dead for embarrassing the People’s Republic of China. To that end, he sends his finest assassin to subtly, quietly eliminate Chen while Madripoor is distracted. Li Hua, an immortal weapon better known as Tiger’s Beautiful Daughter, has an ability to manipulate “chi” energy that makes her both a deadly combatant and largely immune to radiation. She’s sworn to slay Chen Lu, but in a battle of tigresses, can Tyger Tiger keep the Radioactive Man alive?
All the while, from his battle blimp, the Mandarin prepares his version of the Avengers: 中国队, pronounced "Zhōngguó duì,” which translates roughly to “China Force”…

At long last, the return of the Locust!
Though he’s going by the Wasp nowadays. Don’t tell Janet. Or Nadia.
Once upon a time, August Hopper was just a simple, brilliant biochemist.
When his genius insecticides were ignored, he took the only logical course of action to receive the respect he deserved.
He devised a way to grow insects to enormous size, the technology to control insects, and dressed up like a giant grasshopper!
Now he’s back! Now he’s dressed up like a giant hornet. But he’s still doing all that other stuff!
Now that Zemo has gotten the heroes of America occupied, there will be nobody to stop him from demonstrating the effectiveness of his inventions!
Nobody… except lawyers!
Monsanto has surreptitiously appropriated the patents on his insecticides!
There’s only one thing August Hopper can do to set this right.
If you guessed it involved Giant bugs, you’re right!

Omega Red’s plan to usurp first “Captain America” and then America itself from Steve Rogers has been completely upended by the even more ambitious national theft of Baron Zemo. Ares, the God of War, has now claimed the mantle and, with the might of the Redeemers, forced Arkady Rossovich to retreat from the Pentagon. Now he seethes with anger, for he remembers another encounter with another Zemo…
In his days as the Soviet Union’s super solider, before he was frozen, one of his primary tasks for exacting revenge. Heinrich Zemo has wrought havoc on the Eastern Front during World War II before escaping to South America. Omega Red was tasked to kill him. But things went wrong…

“OXYGEN”
After liberating ARCHANGEL from a mutant detention camp established by Sct. of Mutant Affairs Cameron Hodge, Karma and her X-MEN lead the mutants to a safe location agreed upon with Captain America himself.
Unfortunately, they’re followed by expert mutant hunters — the Sapiens League!
These people aren’t in fighting shape — they’re weak and hungry from the camp. Will the LEPER QUEEN and the HATE-MONGER extinguish the revolution before it even starts?
Not if the X-Men have anything to say about it!
Iceman maintains an ice wall, sheltering the crowd so that Cecilia Reyes and Triage can patch them up. Wallflower keeps the crowd from panicking with her pheromones.
Silhouette needs time to manifest the darkforce necessary for a mass-teleport to the Moon. Both Ricochet and Mercury help defend her — is this simple camaraderie, or is a love triangle brewing?
Back on the moon, Prodigy keeps the team informed, with Zero acting as their living instant communications network!
Once Silhouette has teleported everyone to Mons Esam, Karma thinks they’re safe.
Unfortunately, the Redeemers have some extraterrestrial members in their ranks, more than capable of assaulting a moon base!
Gravity, aka Blacksun, and Star Splendor, blow a hole in the side of Karma’s moonbase, blowing her out into the void of space!
Is this the end for Xuân?
