WORLD WAR ZEMO #4
Written by ALEX DE CAMPI
Plot by H-E-D
Art by CARMEN CARNERO & GABRIEL HARDMAN
“FREEDOM’S LAST STAND”
Sct. Zemo returns to America triumphant. Both he and his army are empowered by hijacked Sharzhadi technology. No single force on Earth can stand against him.
But there was an idea… born in the aftermath of the conflict between two heroes… the idea that against overwhelming odds, the forces of good would unite to face them. Two words.
AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!
And assemble they have! In the skies above Washington D.C., heroes from across the globe have assembled for a final battle against the totalitarian threat of Zemo and his Nazi thugs!
Captain America, Steven Rogers, sounded the call! Thor, Mighty King of Asgard, answered!
More royalty arrived as The Black Panther, King of Wakanda, personally joined the band! None other than Iron Man himself followed! The geniuses, Ant-Man and Prof. Hulk!
And more: Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange! The screaming Songbird! America Chavez, paramedic of the multiverse!
Last but not least… when the Thing sees a bunch of Nazis in the skies, he *knows* it’s Clobberin’ Time!
These ten heroes are the SHINING AVENGERS! It’s the greatest assemblage of heroes you could ever want! But they’re not all!
Thanks to Captain America’s work in Zemo’s absence, the brainwashing of Washington D.C. has been broken. Every able-bodied citizen does what they can to help as the streets of America’s capitol descend into all-out war!
Zemo is furious — and with the stolen powers of the Sultan Magus, enters the fray personally!
Even the Shining Avengers can’t overcome that power. Zemo has them on the ropes.
But as he prepares to strike the killing blow to Captain America, his new powers falter and vanish!
Cap smiles: right on time.
While the Shining Avengers fought in the light of Day, the SHADOW AVENGERS took down Zemo from within!
The Shadow Avengers: Black Widow, the Wasp, Spider-Girl, Stinger. And not just bug heroes: Spellbinder, Iron Lad, Doc Sampson, Prince Wayfinder, Silhouette and the Winter Soldier!
Together, they sabotaged the stolen Sharzhadi technology.
Enraged, Zemo calls upon his ace in the hole, Agent Carnage, to finish off Cap – but Zemo didn’t know that Carnage was reprogrammed to be loyal only to Warbird. And Archangel convinced her to betray him! His call falls on deaf ears.
Zemo is apoplectic. Victory was within his grasp! Now, all is lost! Screaming and crying, he vows never to be a prisoner. The would-be master of the globe looks to emulate his idol Hitler one last time, as he puts a gun to his head and pulls the trigger.
But he should have paid more attention, as the gun he grabbed was one of the now-useless Sharzhadi weapons! Guess he’s not so much of a genius as he thought.
Songbird knocks him out with a sonic blast, and soon enough, the War is over!
Now, the day will forever be remembered as V-Z Day — Victory Over Zemo Day!

“TRUE LIES”
Nick Fury stands before a group of shocked agents, stunned to see him alive! Marcus Fury asks his father what's going on? There are multiple reports of his death and they saw his body so they demand to know what's happening? Fury tells them that a QUIET WAR has been secretly going on for years. The dead Fury, the man who they thought was leading them is Max Fury, a rogue LMD! Max, along with two others planned an elaborate takeover of the U.S. and the rest of the world by replacing people in key positions with LMDs!
Max Fury along with Susan Kelly was behind the death of her husband Robert Kelly, a prominent Senator planning to run for President. What everyone didn't know, not even Kelly's wife, was that Kelly himself was an LMD. When the Senator showed signs of his own growing ambitions, Max Fury set up a meeting with the Kellys' to get him back in line. After a heated argument, Max "killed" the Senator and threatened to do the same to his wife Sharon unless she agreed to work for Fury and take his place. She had no choice and soon won her husbands' seat becoming the Senator from Kansas.
As Sharon Kelly grew more powerful, she began to search for a way to eliminate Max, the only other person who knew the truth about her husband. This led Max to recruit a team agents who he would use in his personal war against Kelly. Long before Kelly's death, Nick Fury began looking into this mysterious group and reached out to the one person on the planet he knew he could trust: The Black Panther! Once they learned about Max, they agreed that Nick would try to infiltrate the group to learn who else was involved. They soon would involve Tony Stark and the three of them developed a plan to try and find out who Max was working with!
Before Nick could uncover the others working with Max, Kelly was killed throwing a huge spotlight on everything! This forced those working with Max into further hiding. With no way of finding the other, Nick followed Max and his Agents of Fury more closely, especially when Max recruited Nicks' son Marcus! Whenever, the agents where in trouble, Nick would reach out to T'Challa for help in getting them out of dangerous situations. After learning everything they could Nick, T'Challa and Tony agreed that it was time to play their hand and confront the LMDs that they knew about. Nick would make the first move by eliminating his clone Max on the condition that T'Challa would continue to protect the team that Max recruited.
Now, Nick tells them that he will turn himself over to HAMMER Director Clay Quartermain to see if and how far that agency is compromised. He also tells then that although he didn't put this team together, he couldn't be more proud of what they've accomplished! There are more challenges ahead and they should stay together and continue fighting to protect freedom around the world!

The Grey King T'Challa calls an emergency session of the Hellfire Club! In a secret chamber, Adrienne Frost, The White Queen and head of the Inner Circle calls them all to order and gives the floor to the Grey King. Not one for mincing words, T'Challa accuses The Red King Moses Magnum of plotting with the enemies of Wakanda, namely Markus Zulu and the nation of N'Gabo! The White King Gorgon asks T'Challa if he has proof of the allegations made against Magnum! Is there truth to any of his allegations or is the Wakandan King merely looking to create division within the Inner Circle. Whispers begin to fill the chamber, both for and against the charges brought by The Grey King.
T'Challa tells them that he is not interested in putting Magnum on trail nor does he wish for the Inner Circle to intervene in what is clearly a Wakandan matter. No, he has all the proof that he needs and will handle the situation not as The Grey King of the Inner Circle but as The Black Panther, King of Wakanda! And as a courtesy, he was merely informing them all that he will no longer count himself as a member of this group. He also leaves them with a final warning: Choose your next move wisely. Any who would interfere in the business of The Black Panther and Wakanda should consider if they are fully prepared to deal with the consequences!

•Orbia, an African nation known for its oil exports and corruption, hasn't been renowned for its natural beauty or as a vacation spot since the early 20th century. Mystique and Destiny remember how it used to be amidst the present day squalor of the capital city's slums on one side and the extreme opulence of their hotel on the other. Just when Mystique began to believe this really was just a sentimental trip, the first explosion happened.
•The trio attacked the financial district with their unique mutant abilities. The ARMAGEDDON MAN rocked petroleum and forestry company offices with localized earthquakes. HUMUS SAPIEN unmade unnatural things like polymers, concrete, and alloys, fueling his powers by draining the life forces of fleeing executives. BROTHER NATURE raised a forest amidst the crumbling ruins, and summoned animals from near and far to reclaim their territory.
•Amidst the carnage, Mystique laughed and kissed Destiny. What a spectacular way to celebrate their quasquicentennial!

With the knowledge that his father is an LMD, Tony travels to New York to confront "Howard". He thinks to himself, "What do you say to someone who is an exact copy of your father, pretending to be your father?" All of these months, Tony truly wanted to believe that his father was alive, that he didn't die in the accident along with his mother. He gets a call from Rhodey, asking him if he's sure if he wants to confront Howard alone. Tony thanks his friend but tells him that he needs to do this, that it's a family matter and he'll be fine.
The Stark jet lands at LaGuardia airport and Tony drives himself to Howards' hotel. As he rides the elevator to the top floor, millions of questions flood his mind again. He clears his head and rings the bell. Howard opens the door and tells Tony to come on in. The first thing that Tony asks is who sent you and why. Howard tells Tony that none of that matters. Even though he went against him in court, he had no intentions of hurting Tony. He has been fully programmed with all of the memories of Howard Stark and if there's one thing that he knows it's that Howard truly loved both of his sons, Tony and Arno.
Tony sits, his sobriety being tested more than ever, wondering what should he do. Howard looks at Tony and tells him, I know what you're thinking. The next few days will hurt but he is a Stark, a futurist and he will survive. He tells him to look out for his brother and know that he is proud of the man that Tony has become. Suddenly Howard collapses to the floor, all of his biological functions having been stopped. The LMD has just shutdown, looking to spare his "son" from dealing with his painful "Howard" situation.

“GREEN SUPREMACY”
Thanks to the Maestro’s grand plan, last issue the so-called “dark” Avengers - Red Hulk (Hulk), Omega Red (Captain America), Deadly Nightshade (Black Widow), Steel Serpent (Winter Soldier), and Tarantula (Spider-Man) - were taken off the board, clearing the path for Zemo’s victory.
Or were they?
Zemo was led to believe that the Maestro offered his loyalty in order to preserve the timeline where Zemo wins and, eventually, the Maestro comes to power. But why rule a wasteland when you can rule a thriving civilization? Do you know how difficult it is to get good foie gras in a post-apocalypse? No, the Maestro is in the past, here and now, and at this moment in time he doesn’t need anything at all from Zemo to orchestrate his own rise to dominance. In fact, he just needs Zemo to not screw up the entire planet due to his zealous adherence to a deluded ideology.
From the inside, Maestro makes sure information on how to sabotage the Sharzhadi technology leaks to the real Black Widow’s Shadow Avengers. As for the imposters he captured, perhaps an “escape” can be arranged where they can make themselves useful in dislodging “the Kraken” Daniel Whitehall from his entrenched position as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff?
And what should the Maestro drink while watching all this carnage unfold? (A) Midori Sour (B) Cucumber Martini (C) Southside Cocktail (D) Irish Margarita (spoiler: they’re all green!).

“SUICIDE BY GOD”
With Sharzhadi weapons and armor rendered inert and smashed to pieces all around him, Thor feels confident that Midgard (or, at least, America) has mostly righted itself. He will not need to conquer the United States - not as long as Steve Rogers is it’s champion. Yet he returned from Hel for this, and his lust for vengeance must be satiated. Zemo kidnapped his sons, and Thor will have their location… or he will have Zemo’s head!
In Thor’s rage, a shackled and defeated Zemo sees an opportunity to avoid standing trial for his crimes. Perhaps where pulling the trigger of a Sharzhadi gun held to his own head failed, goading an angry god would succeed?
“Your misbegotten offspring are dead, Asgardian swine! The taint you left on their genes made them useless to me. I killed them myself!”
Can the other Avengers prevent a public execution and stop Thor from giving Zemo what he wants?
Meanwhile, Mockingbird and the very-much-alive twins of thunder (Magni and Modi Thorson) flee the wrath of a vengeful Emerald Witch: Amora, the Enchantress. Their explosive efforts to escape draw Asgardian attention… but not that of Thor. Instead, it’s mom to the rescue! All-Mother Queen Sif finally locates her children, and if she must, she’ll carve Amora in half to save them!
Elsewhere, Hel’s ruler has entered her third trimester. The “bargain” Hela struck with the Odinson (see THE MIGHTY THOR #50) is soon to bear fruit… and her name shall be Angrboða Thordottir!

“TROLLS NEVER DIE”
For too long, trolls have been demonized and targeted for slaughter or caged in internment camps. After finally forging a new homeland for his people, Ulik now faces an invasion from Midgard with none other than Odin himself at its vanguard. This leads Ulik to surmise that the Aesir Asgardians must have betrayed the trolls in favor of their precious humans… again. And the Vanir of nearby Zanadu in the Mystic Mountains are no better. Not only have they refused to lend aid to the trolls in defense of their shared Realm, but their leader Warlord Mogul tried to stop the half-troll Gunna from reinforcing her own people.
No more.
With his mighty uru knuckles, and assistance from Gunna, Ulik assails the former All-Father - unaware that Odin is actually ensorcelled by the Enchantress, Amora, and fighting against his will! Channeling all of the rage of generations of trolls, with renewed vigor, Ulik shouts a war cry that could be heard all the way in Asgard and savagely beats Odin to death!
“We will never be caged again!”
The Redeemers and the Department of Occult Armaments, having witnessed Ulik’s fury and simultaneously gotten word of Zemo’s defeat in Washington D.C., retreat back to Earth. The trolls proclaim victory, declaring that henceforth the treacherous Asgardians, Midgardians and the Vanir are all their enemies!
This leaves Gunna with a difficult choice to make. Does she join with Ulik and the trolls, perhaps see what has become of the infamous Magni Tribe from whence she came, or embrace her other half and go with her uncle Hogun and the Warriors Three, the family that she never knew she had?

“THE LOCUST vs THE SWARM”
Written by ROY THOMAS
Plot by H-E-D
Art by KASIA NIE
Back by popular demand!
August Hopper, aka the Locust, aka the Wasp, has no taste for white supremacy.
The only thing he has taste for is pesticides!
Not literally, that would kill him.
His pursuit of his passion brought him into conflict with Monsanto and their team of lawyers… now they bring him into conflict with the Department of Agriculture!
As Secretary, Fritz von Meyer has turned the department into a hive of Nazi-flavored apiculture, feasting on the farms of the nation!
(He’s a Nazi made of bees, if you didn’t catch on)
Food prices are skyrocketing, livelihoods are being destroyed, children are terrified of the outdoors…
The Swarm must fall – and who better for the job than the Locust!
No time to bug out – it’s time for Dr. Hopper to make a stand.
It’s Locust vs. the Swarm!
(You know, just like the title says)
“VULNERABILITY”
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
Israeli super-soldier Ruth Bat-Seraph, better known as Sabra, has an opportunity. For years, “Sultan Magus” - the Qatari separatist formerly known as Dagan Shah - has been a major destabilizing force and supporter of terrorism in the Middle East. The alien technology Shah discovered and used to create Sharzhad made him all but unstoppable… until World War Zemo. With Shah’s technology hijacked by another evil monster, Sultan Magus has become something he hasn’t been since he first came upon Sabra’s radar: vulnerable. Will she seize the opportunity and take him out?
And how might the presence of the Shadow Avengers in Sharzhad complicate her efforts?
“REDEEMERS IN REVOLT”
Written by Al Ewing
Plot by H-E-D
Art by Linnéa V. J.
It started off as a gig, how did it end up like this?
While Zemo stuffed the government with dyed-in-the-wool Nazis, a lot of his Redeemers were just there for the cash.
And as Zemo’s New Reich heats up… they’re realizing that no paycheck is worth the price of collaboration and complicity!
Skein, Antlion, Axum, Mach-X, Satánica, Halation, and Centurius have all had enough – they’re quitting.
Instead of two-week’s notice, they’ve decided to hand in their resignation by way of a little old-school robbery!
They decide to steal Sct. Arnim Zola’s research to sell on the black market for a tidy payday.
Unfortunately – or, fortunately, depending on how you look at it – their infiltration of Zola’s Project Petrichor comes with a big complication.
Namely… Zola is still there.
These rebel Redeemers are soon in the fight of their lives against Zola – but this leaves Zemo’s forces doubly depleted as the final battle in D.C. gets underway!
Hurray for burglary!
Peter Parker in “WHAT CAN ONE MAN DO?”
Writer: ROGER STERN
Artist: MARCOS MARTIN
Plot: CAPTCLEGHORN
Peter comes from Gwen’s hospital room after her being shot last issue (WWZ:OTB #3). He returns home to Hauser Street to see Aunt May hold up in the basement, emergency supplies in place. Although most of the NYC problems are Manhattan based, many New Yorkers are acting as if they were Midwesterners waiting out a hurricane.
He doesn’t know what to do. There are hundreds, no, thousands of soldiers and the sides are unclear. He’s a HS senior, worried about a girlfriend and future school plans. He’s not Captain America or Thor who can just fly to DC and fight the bad guy on the Washington Mall.
But Pete has a costume. And so do many others in this world. So he fills his web-shooters, dons his mask and swings out to find them and offer his support.
He is a super-hero.

X-MEN: SILVER #4
Written by STEPHANIE WILLIAMS
Plot by H-E-D
Art by ARIELA KRISTANTINA
“MOVE AGAIN”
While Zemo’s reign of terror threatens the whole globe, X-Men Silver is defending mutants worldwide!
In America, half the team – Karma, Rogue, and Iceman, joined by the sorceress Spellbinder – assault the Zemo-aligned Sapien League’s headquarters!
Meanwhile, the other squad of the X-Men arrive in Kümüx, East Turkestan. Their target: Project Zuǒēn (佐恩计划), a Uyghur re-education camp for mutants.
Silhouette, Ricochet, and Mercury all have mutant gifts suited perfectly to a stealth operation – work smarter, not harder, right?
At the heart of the complex, the trio find the true Project Zuǒēn: a mutant being used as a living power generator – a man with a star for a head.
Breaking him free, the star man is able to carve an escape route right through the center of the complex for all the mutants.
Grateful and furious, Project Zuǒēn takes the moniker of Zorn (Ricochet’s suggestion) and asks for a place on the team, if they’ll have him.
Zorn’s power is terrifying and his motivations mysterious – but it’s all hands on deck in the fight for mutant survival!
Silhouette teleports the four of them to America, where Karma and her team are just finishing the fight against the Leper Queen and the Hate-Monger!
With their defeat, a major pillar of Mutant Affairs Sct. Cameron Hodge’s program is crippled. Of course, the fight is not over – Hexus Corp and the Americops still police mutants throughout the nation!
Soon, word comes in from their ally Captain America – Avengers Assemble!
X-Men Silver proudly joins up for the final fight against the tyranny of Zemo!
