Plot by NX01A
Written by GRANT MORRISON

“D.O.A.” Part 4 “THE HOUSE OF STARRY WISDOM”
Theme Song: Metallica - Dream No More
•Welcome to Arkham in Essex County, Massachusetts. Arkham is home to Miskatonic University, best known for its winning water polo team, costly research expeditions, and rare books collection. What happens when you combine those three?
•The DEPARTMENT OF OCCULT ARMAMENTS has gained access to the most unspeakably vile tomes on the US eastern seaboard thanks to unhinging the SCARLET WITCH's mind. Now the only thing that stands between them and works like Friedrich von Junzt's Unaussprechlichen Kulten and the fragmentary Book of Eibon is a team of fish-man hybrids wearing speedos and wielding electrified tridents.
•While the D.O.A. deal with the Fighting Cephalopods, DOCTOR STRANGE deals with Wanda's broken probability ability. What if MAGIK forgot magic, AGATHA HARKNESS was burned at the stake 400 years ago, ELSA BLOODSTONE was a pacifist, and DOCTOR VOODOO was only a doctor of psychiatry? If Stephen can't contain the chaos, he'll find out what it's like to have lost his head in a certain car accident.

AMAZING FANTASY #5

Plot by CAPTCLEGHORN

“RATS!” starring SPIDER-MAN
When we left Spider-Man last issue, he was involved in a fight with a superhuman who seems to be part rat. He calls himself Vermin and can reason about as well as you’d imagine someone who thinks Vermin is a good name would reason. Spidey’s only option here is to fight. Which usually works out well for our hero, but this time, his opponent’s got super-strength and a feral thirst for battle. Can Spidey win? And will his phone get good video?
While Peter’s off fighting rat-dudes, his pre-powers plan to get a sweet summer internship has fallen by the wayside. Can Peter manage a battle against possibly his strangest foe yet? Because Gwen Stacy is after the U.S. Atomic Research Center position herself, and she’s not busy fighting super-villains to take up her free time.
And in our Fantasy/Horror back-up…

CAPTAIN AMERICA #17
Plot by EXCITER
Written by FRANK MILLER
Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
“TO BOLDLY GO” part two “THE BEST OF TYRANTS”
”For there is no folly of the beast of the earth which is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men.”
-Herman Melville, Moby Dick.
With the help of a future version of M.O.D.O.K., Khan Noonien Singh has travelled to our time... with superior ambition. He’s identified Captain America as an obstacle that warrants elimination, and his plan is bold: as he once ruled most of Asia and the Middle East, he now seeks to unify Captain America’s enemies from those regions: the Mandarin of China; Omega Red of Russia; and Sultan Magus of Sharzhad! But can even the genetic “superman” Khan assemble these deadly foes to work in unison against their common enemy?
With disparate forces aligning against him, Steve Rogers might also have an unexpected new ally. The current M.O.D.O.K. takes aim at his future self, his ego unwilling to except any timeline where he becomes a failure!
And as all this is happening, Khan remembers how he defeated Rogers the first time... How in his timeline, Dr. Erskine wasn’t killed and his super soldier serum birthed a superior class of humans: the Augments. Rogers was the first, but his mind was weak. He believed his inferiors could governor themselves, that they were competent to take care of their world. Looking at what they had done, this was obvious folly. Khan tried to show him this, but Rogers stubbornly clung to his democratic ideals. Thus began... the Eugenics Civil War!

“TRIAL BY FIRE!”
Over the past few months, we (and other characters) have often made jokes at Johnny Storm’s expense. But with Graviton’s actions, there are many asteroids, comets, and meteors heading for our planet. Reed and Ben need to take the Pogo Plane into space in order to prevent extreme damage and possibly an extinction level event. Johnny and Josephine are left to hopefully defeat the power of the man called Graviton. However, Graviton is getting more and more familiar with his ability to truly warp physical relationships. Can a flaming man and a telepathic gorilla stop the threat of someone who can possibly destroy the planet by himself with a random thought?
On the other side of the country, in Washington, DC, Victor Von Doom is concerned with Sunset Bain reneging on her promise to make him the exclusive buyer of the new “Doombot” product. Can he and Senator Sue Storm (the Invisible Woman) work together to uncover how deeply the human appearing “Doombots” have infiltrated the US political hierarchy? And should Doom and Sue solve the DC dilemma, there still remain the “Doombots” Victor currently has on Alcatraz.

Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“OFFENSIVE”
In a betrayal that still reverberates through the Nine Realms, Odin was stabbed by his own wife, Frigga - now returned to her maiden name, Freyja. Critically wounded, his sons Thor and Loki spirited his prone body away in retreat. For more than seven months, Odin has been convalescing as he and his family have been constantly harried by Freyja’s forces. And for more than half a year, the treacherous All-Mother has been sitting upon his throne in an Asgard utterly conquered by the unholy alliance of Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, Musphelheim, Niffleheim, the draconian Jormungandi, and Midgard’s United States of America. No more.
There was hope that when healed he could right this wrong, but Odin now understands that he will never again be what he once was. His weakness is holding his people back. There must be a new All-Father, young and capable of leading the Asgardians in this time of crisis. And there is only one choice...
Reluctantly assuming the crown, King Thor vows to avenge his father! He’d tirelessly assembled his own alliance of Asgardian refugees, Jotunheim, Nidavellir, Alfheim, and Rock Trolls and the time has come for them to cease retreating and to finally strike back! The Járngreipr Offensive has begun and it’s first objective is to cast the serpents out of the Elven realm of Alfheim! But to do this, the God of Thunder must bring his power to bear against the reptilian Jormungandi and their leader, “He Whose Limbs Shatter Mountains and Whose Back Scrapes the Sun” - Fin Fan Foom! He must slay the dragon or die trying... but has Thor too quickly forgotten the prophecy that he would fall at the hands of a serpent from Midgard?

“APOTHEOSIS” Part 2 – “BREAK IT”
A possessed Sentry has trapped the Ultimates in the Cascade, an extra-dimensional sinkhole!
How, you ask?
It’s simple; using the Golden Guardian of Good, the nefarious Erica Fortune – Spellbreaker – cast a ritual to spread a curse to the entire team!
It’s not just any curse – it’s the curse that Jennifer Kale placed upon Erica to banish her from the mortal realm. The only thing keeping the mad sorceress from wrecking havoc on their world.
Now the only way for the Ultimates to get home is to have Jennifer lift the curse – freeing Spellbreaker in the process!
She doesn’t have much choice in the matter, as Nul and the Worthy launch an assault on Hanoi!
Nul intends to harvest humanity’s fear to power his God Machine – and it’s working!
The timing is just as Nul and Spellbreaker planned. (Though latter neglected to tell the former that the Ultimates might get back in the game.)
This is an endgame that Spellbreaker has been working towards since the beginning – ever since the damage caused Roxxon’s cosmic fracking allowed her to free Nul from his prison! Are the Ultimates just trading one catastrophe for another?
This is a trip one Ultimate won’t be coming home from!
THEN,
Under the tutelage of the Serpent, Nul has harnessed the power of fear to go from undergrown runt to a mighty hulk. Ond had sworn to always stand by his brother’s side, but Nul’s directives from All-Father Cul grow increasingly cruel; and he seems all too willing to follow them. When the Serpent orders the extermination of an entire realm, Ond is determined to get his brother to see reason. But can he possible stop his brother from being consumed by the thrill of power, or has he already become the Breaker of Worlds?
