AVENGERS ARMISTICE #1

  • World War Zemo Aftermath*

Written by AL EWING
Plot by H-E-D
Art by JASMIN DARNELL
“A PROMISE KEPT”
After the Civil War between Captain America and Thor, a pact was made.
To liberate the world from the evil of “Baron” Zemo’s New Reich, Captain America turned that pact into reality.
The Avengers Assembled… now what?
At Camp Kirby, built in the bones of a mythic beast, two teams gather to decide their future:
The inspiring heroes of the day, the Shining Avengers, and the clever vigil of the night, the Shadow Avengers. As above, so below.
The mightiest heroes of Earth, and realms beyond.
Most of these heroes have other commitments: teams, families, kingdoms, countries, timelines, alternate dimensions, you name it. They can’t Avenge full-time.
But somebody needs to stay at Camp Kirby, ready to sound the call, ready to avenge at a moment’s notice. And Melissa Gold, the soaring Songbird, has finally found her calling.
Her adoptive ward, Gunna Sijurvald, has found a home in Vanaheim with her uncle Hogun. Her lover, Chen Lu, has made peace with the Nüba Jituan and international law enforcement, retiring from costumed antics to become a proper scientist once more.
Where does that leave Melissa?
Once she was a crook; then, a supervillain. But it wasn’t until she got to be a hero that she recognized her true self in the mirror.
Songbird pledges to serve as an Avenger, forever!

THUNDERBOLTS NO MORE #1

  • World War Zemo Aftermath*

Written by ALEX DE CAMPI
Plot by H-E-D
Art by CARMEN CARNERO & GABRIEL HARDMAN
The War is over. But the battle scars remain.
There’s no easy way of telling how many in the government were actually subject to Faustus’ mind-control techniques, and who were genuine collaborators.
All the hiring decisions made during Zemo’s reign have been reversed… but how many more loyalist remain?
Agent Dallas Riordan is cleared of all charges, and appointed as the new Secretary of Defense to replace Zemo. She has a heavy task ahead of her, clearing Zemo’s lackeys out of the inner workings of the Department!
Karla Sofen, aka Moonstone, makes a plea deal with the government to go free: handing over the “keys” to control Agent Carnage, the brain-dead war criminal with a bloodthirsty alien symbiote. I’m sure the CIA will never use the living weapon for unworthy ends.
Warren Worthington III, aka Archangel, is similarly exonerated… and actually, he’s feeling better than he has in years. He’s looking to pay that forward.
Throwing gobs of money at Perry Hammond, his attorney, Warren has his ex-wife Ichisumi Kishi released from prison.
Ultimately, Warren knows, she was just as much a victim of Ramses and AKKΔBA.
Together with his children, Uriel and Eimin, the Worthingtons try to move forward.
But what happened to Ramses… or rather, to Ozymandius? Has he found his way back into the bosom of his master Revelation?
(Revelation happens to be the translation from Greek translation of Apocalypse! Coincidence? Don’t bet on it.)
Meanwhile… what is to become of Warren’s former friend, Secretary Cameron Hodge of the Mutant Affairs Department? Can he survive the fallout from Zemo’s failure?
Speaking of Zemo… what ever happened to the monster who made this mess?
Off the coast of Fort Kirby, in the aquatic prison called the Special Containment Center, Helmut Zemo is in isolated confinement.
They’ve cut the head off his movement… but two more will take its place.
Wolfgang von Strucker and Daniel Whitehall are in the wind… leading the remnants of Zemo’s forces under a new banner, the banner of HYDRA!

Writer: CHRISTOPHER PRIEST
Artist: STEFANO CASELLI
“TO ALL THINGS AN END!”
The real Nick Fury has secretly surrendered himself to Clay Quarterman, Director of HAMMER, on the condition that none of the agents recruited by the LMD Max Fury be charged and given a clean slate. Quarterman argues that these "Agents of Fury" have broken several laws and committed numerous felony assaults against the gov't! Why should they be allowed to walk away Scott free? Nick tells his old friend that he's going to let those agents walk because if he doesn't, he'll let it slip out about how the U.S. failed to stop an infiltration of the gov't by LMDs, including a prominent Senator! Then he will announce how the gov't was an accomplice in the death of that Senator!
Quarterman thinks long and hard but he really has no choice. He agrees to Nick's terms, besides there are much bigger problems to deal with and he will need Nick's help. The first thing they will need to do is find out if HAMMER has been infiltrated and if so, how far up the chain does it go? Who can they trust?
Elsewhere, Marcus, Sharon and the rest of the team begin to discuss what their next move should be. Everything they were led to believe has been a lie and their leader was a fraud. How do they cope with this? Marcus believes that they should stay together. But Rachel and Jack don't want any part of this team anymore and just walk out of the room. Roz Solomon and Jack Flagg have been offered work with other spy organizations and decide to leave. That just leaves Marcus and Sharon. Sharon says that despite everything, they made a great team and should continue working together. Marcus agrees, this team maybe over but that doesn't mean their work is done!

Gaius Baltar and Number Six have been raising Hera on Caprica and are aware of the movement around her. Leoben(Number Two) and Simon(Number Four) along with many Centurians have formed The Children of Hera, a new Cylon faction who worship the child! They also know that other members of the Inner Council - Brother John, D'Anna, "Sharon" and Number Five were at first welcoming of Hera but now see her as dangerous to Cylon society. What will they do? Will the Inner Council clamp down hard on the Children of Hera and risk an all-out Cylon civil war?
Meanwhile, using a Cylon raider stolen from an outcast Brother John clone, Sharon has managed to sneak onto Caprica undetected. Far above and hiding behind one of Caprica's moons, Helo, Starbuck and Apollo wait in a Raptor. They are all here to find Sharon and Helos' stolen daughter and bring her home! But for Sharon, getting onto the planet is one thing, leaving with the Messiah of a cult is a different matter! What chance do four people have against millions of Cylons and a cult of fanatics? Don't worry they've thought about this long and hard....and they have a plan!

“NO REST FOR THE RIGHTEOUS”
Steve Rogers returned to wield the shield of Captain America when the United States needed him the most… when the nation was seized in the iron grip of Baron Zemo. Yet even as he helps finalize Songbird’s position at the unified Avengers headquarters of Camp Kirby, trouble is already brewing again in Washington D.C.!
The public is shaken by how easily Zemo was able to use Dr. Faustus’ mind-control techniques to dominate key government personalities. Eager to “never allow a crisis to go to waste,” politicians capitalize on this moral panic by proposing dangerous new laws and legislation. Perhaps the most troubling of all, Congresswoman Roja-Oñederra champions creation of the “Office of Mental National Integrity”: a federal agency whose mandate is to ensure no more mind control. But who will determine whether your mind is operating properly? Who could possibly use OMNI’s power responsibly? Steve voices his public opposition to such an agency…
And although he just returned and saved the world, his old establishment detractors are already back and attempting to silence him! This time, the Brooklyn District Attorney actually brings criminal charges against Steve for falsifying documents in enlistment papers that he officially submitted when he was just “Scrawny Steve” back in 1941! Can Cap’s lawyer, the incomparable Connie Ferrari, get these spurious charges dismissed? The problem is, Cap admits… he did it!

For all their natural abilities, there's something decidedly unnatural influencing the Nature Bros, but can Black Tom sever the connection?
•The true masterminds of the Orbia assault aren't happy with this interference, and they take their jobs as caretakers very seriously. This Outer Sphere is very good. Next time, they'll have to be more careful.

The Bad news: Ya boi Simon Williams didn’t get the part in “Sentinel of Liberty: The Steve Rogers Story” (see WORLD WAR ZEMO: ON THE BATTLEFIELD #3). Disney decided to cast Gail Paris as Captain America instead, which Simon has to admit is both stunning and brave.
The Good news: They’re also making a D+ bio-series about the Hulk, a.k.a. Bruce Banner, and the Studio’s VFX department is completely overtaxed - so, to save money, they want to hire an actor that’s already super-strong. Then they can just cheaply paint him green and have him do his own practical effects, like lifting cars, bending steel, etc. Wonder Man is their guy!
Playing both dweeby scientist Bruce Banner and rage-monster Hulk will be the biggest flex of Simon’s acting muscles to date! It’s time to look in the mirror and get into character. “Don’t make me angry. It’ll be bad a bad look for everyone, trust me, just don’t do it!”
Unfortunately for Simon, fellow superhuman actor Dirk “Megawatt” Leydon really wanted the role… and he’s willing to kill Wonder Man to get it!

“WHERE WALKS A RIGELLIAN”
Midgard is safe, with Zemo alive but in a nigh-inescapable prison and Camp Kirby operating again as Avengers headquarters. His sons Magni and Modi are safe, now back on Asgard with their mother (and current All-Mother), Queen Sif. Thor’s work appears to be done… which means he must now pay his promised debt to Hel.
As if sacrificing his marriage by impregnating her wasn’t enough, Hela demanded more in exchange for returning Thor from the dead. And in his desperation and urgency to save his children and Midgard, he agreed. Thor now hopes for any excuse to delay his obligations under that “resurrection contract”… and Captain America provides!
Zemo was able to obtain god-like power from technology that he stole from Sharzhad, which Sultan Magus earlier found by accident and used to build the city-state from whence he menaced the Middle East. That technology, which is self-repairing and defies conventional destruction, originally came from the Rigel Star System. Cap asks Thor to provide support and Bifrost transportation for a cosmic Avengers auxiliary mission, lead by Mockingbird and Sultan Magus’ arch-nemesis Sabra, to Rigel-III. There they hope to find a way to deactivate the alien technology permanently. But what they ultimately find on that distant planet will surprise them all…
Plus, Sultan Magus himself has a vested interest in maintaining the alien technology and plans to foil their efforts. Oh thunder god, it’s not a mirage… I’m tellin’ thou it’s sabotage!

The Beaubier twins, Aurora and Northstar have been released back to Canada in a move designed to build sympathy for the USA after what was called World War Zemo.
Shang’s mission is to bring his sister home. Shen has disavowed her father, the despot Fu Manchu but is forced to admit his actions in the event were on the better side. Then again, more moral than a nazi is a rather low bar to set. What neither of the siblings realize is that the follow-up to Fu Manchu’s plan has begun and several sleeper agents have been activated in the DC area. These agents are LMDs purloined by Fu Manchu years ago as he sought methods to infiltrate other nations. He found these early models somewhat awkward and unable to react quickly enough to properly mimic a certain human being. But now, with rebuilding the priority and defenses down, the attempt is surely worth the minimal effort needed.
Can Shen Qi stop her father’s plan? Will Shang Chi help her?
And we discover the secret of Shen Qi (born Fah Lo Suee) and Shang Chi in a surprise last page.

GRAVES
As Xorr’s reach grows, crystallizing planes as far as the Consecution of Colors and as close as the Badlands, it becomes clear that the God-Jewel’s hunger has no limits.
Inevitably, Xorr will target a nexus. Otherworld, perhaps. The M’kraan Crystal, maybe. But something in Jennifer’s bones tell her that Xorr will come for the Swamp, for the Nexus of All Realities.
Apocaledon has been guarding the swamp in Man-Thing’s absence, but she’s only one solitary plant monster. The Agents of A.R.C.A.N.A. are… occupied. Ciress is recovering from a magical drought (see MYSTIC for details). And given the nature of the threat, there’s not much conventional heroes like the newly-formed Shining Avengers can do.
It’s down to Jennifer, her ad-hoc Coven, and the Way of Zhered-Na. They’re mighty, but few, and they face a god among gods.
But, after consulting with the Crux, the Atlantean sorceress Tareva, and the Tomes of Zhered-Na, Jennifer has realized something else…
By creating the Prisma-Crystal, Zhered-Na did more than repurpose a Bio-Gem.
She created a trap, in case Xorr ever returned. The assimilation of the Prisma-Crystal has irrevocably embedded Zheredian magic into the very core of Xorr’s being.
Can Jennifer figure out how to turn that to their advantage before Xorr assimilates… well, everything?
