NEGATION #2
Event Miniseries
Written by JEFF PARKER
Plot by H-E-D
Art by DUSTIN WEAVER with CHRISTIAN WARD
“GENOCIDAL HUMANOIDZ”
War has gripped all corners of the rapidly shrinking Posi-Verse! Annihilus, backed by the mysterious Lawbringers, has slain Gladiator and toppled the Shi’ar Imperium. Anti-Magic renders the superhuman impotent. All hope seems lost… but maybe the heroes haven’t been looking in the right place.
NEGATION DAY 20
The Conclave of Ciress.
Some of the universe’s most powerful individuals have gathered on the mystical planet of Ciress, brought there by Adam Warlock to hear the words of one man… Danik. No worries if you don’t know the name, because nobody else knows who he is either. Nobody… except GALACTUS.
It’s quite the co-sign.
Galactus doesn’t have much to say, but the endorsement is enough. A bearded man in plain robes, Danik claims that in the deep heart of the Negative Zone lies the source of Annihilus’ new Anti-Magic powers… and the key to their undoing.
At Galactus’ order, the Silver Surfer forms a team to escort Danik into the abyss. The Spellbinder (a.k.a. Jennifer Kale). Captain Britain (a.k.a. Betsy Braddock). Gamora and Nebula. Noh-Varr.
And... Adam Warlock.
Meet your New Annihilators!
NEGATION DAY 27
Spellbinder requisitions the assistance of Dark Angel and Nightmask to perform an insertion of the Annihilators into deep Negative Zone territory using the Superflow, avoiding the ease of incursion sites in favor of stealth. Massacre of Klencory, Delassia and Neomu.
While the others follow Danik off into the great unknown, somebody has to defend civilizations. Sounds like a job for the Sorcerers of the Stars! Star-Lord (f.k.a. Magique), Moondragon and the Dragon of the Moon, Mantis and Quoi, Drax, Master of the Sun (a.k.a Peter Quill). While the New Annihilators seek the end of the war... they will Hold the Line!
Meanwhile, in South Carolina, Sam Andahl-Rey has had her homecoming dance interrupted by giant space bugs. Will she survive… and, why do we care about this particular teenage girl?
NEGATION DAY 33
The Sorcerers of the Stars and their allies do their best to hold Negation forces to former Shi’ar space. Massacre of Gilgrath, Ardent Spring, Ieaiaio, Hy’lt Major and Kayseecay.
The New Annihilators find the heart of the Negative Zone in total disarray – and not just by Posi-Verse standards. Seems somebody has been leading prison breaks while the wardens are away. Will the chaos help them in their mission, or are they doomed to be consumed by it as well?
Elsewhere, those absentee wardens make use of their talents in a new setting. In a Lawbringer P.O.W. camp on a moon of Chandilar, Nova faces daily torture and interrogation at the hands of the deadly QZTR. Though, as far as Rich can tell, the Lawbringer doesn’t seem much more fond of Annihilus than he is...
NEGATION DAY 41
The New Annihilators continue their exploration of deep Negative Zone territory. Massacre of Tanipal.
Negation victory seems inevitable, but is there trouble in paradise? It seems there must be, because after weeks of torment, Nova finds himself sprung from prison… by a Lawbringer?!
QZTR has let Nova out, and sets him on a beeline to Annihilus! The lord of the Anthrosians hadn’t prepared for such a betrayal... which means it’s finally time for the rematch you’ve been waiting for, a fight to the death on the celestial shores of Chandilore! Nova versus Annihilus, winner take all!

CAPTAIN AMERICA #31 *Negation Tie-In*
Plot by EXCITER
Written by FRANK MILLER
Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
“LET’S GET NEGATIVE”
And there came a day unlike any other, when earth's mightiest heroes were united against a common threat! To much media fanfare, a “dark” Avengers team has been sent into New York City to confront the magical/alien threat from the Negative Zone. But can they fight the foes that no single hero could withstand... when they are unexpectedly without their powers?
Captain America (f.k.a. Omega Red) must inspire his team, as his accursed predecessor Rogers would. The Winter Soldier (Steel Serpent) is still one of the world’s deadliest martial artists. The Hulk (Red Hulk) is still a military man with decades of combat experience. The Black Widow (Deadly Nightshade) never needed powers to begin with. The Warriors Three are still Asgard’s finest fighters. And Captain Marvel (America Chavez)... well, he hates Chavez anyway. She’s been coerced into joining the team and she’ll do her job - or else.
But Arkady Rossovich’s words, as they often do, hide a grim truth. Without his ability to drain life force from others, he has no way to fight the carbonadium poisoning caused by his implants. He’s dying... and his only hope is to complete the mission quickly and without complications: kill the lawbringer XXTR... or die trying!
Meanwhile, Mockingbird has rallied her own squad of all-winners for a mission in NYC - and they didn’t have powers to begin with! Herself, the half-tank ex-Reaver Bonebreaker, the real Black Widow, and the real Winter Soldier! They want to take out XXTR too, but Bucky realizes that he might never get a better chance to take down the imposter wielding the shield. Will this be the Death of Captain America?

With Negation, Starfox believes they have not done enough, they should have done more.

The Infinity Stones, they have been missing since the last Infinity Watch disbanded.
Eros travels the universe in search of the Infinity Stones, but things are not as expected.
Months ago, Eros witnessed his brother Thanos return to life but he never asked why,
Thanos was supposed to be a prisoner of Mistress Death but he was exiled,
the Mad Titan shared with Eros much dark knowledge from many dimensions,
but there are some he had withheld from his brother.
Now Starfox must enter the Realm of Death himself and learn the forbidden knowledge from the Infinity Well.
Such a trespassing will not be unnoticed and there is always a price to pay to venture the Styx.
The Starfox practiced a certain ancient Titan technique that allows his soul to venture the Realm of Death,
but the dead are not fooled as easily as the living, Eros had to defeat the many guards of Death.
Upon his invasion of the Infinity Well, he learned the forbidden knowledge and was taken prisoner by Death.
But before his corpse can grow cold, he returns to the living as an anomaly to the Cosmic norm,
he had been exiled from the Realm of Death just like Thanos was,
to never be able to enjoy Death's loving embrace and have peace.
And Eros also learned the terrible truth, when the Infinity King Thanos forged a last Infinity stone, the Heart Stone,
The Infinity King used his own black heart, and thus corrupted and infected the other Infinity Stones with his dark desires,
now the Infinity Stones have their own heart, they have become sentient, Infinity Beings,
the Dark Infinity.

Okay, so the Insecticide Squad’s mission to rescue the POTUS from the D.C. Negation Zone has suffered some... rather considerable setbacks that have caused Valerie Cooper to repeatedly punch a wall in her office at O*N*E* Headquarters.
The team’s sorcerer, Jihad, was quickly exploded by a magic missile shot into the darkness by mage bugs. Pink Pearl used her girth to block the pursuing swarm, sacrificing herself to allow the team to escape down a narrow alley. Typeface changed all his letters to “F” to pay respects, before he too was Xed out.
On the positive side, Paste Pot Pete’s traps have proven massively effective against the insectoids! And the team has reached the outer walls of the White House.
Problem: Queen Eradica, one of Annihilus’ Arthrosian consorts, has made the White House her nest. Reaching the President, currently blockaded in the Oval Office and upset about all this malarkey, will require the team to split up.
The Matador, Toughy Tomcat, and Manslaughter Marsdale will distract Eradica. While her attention is elsewhere, PPP will take Ruby Tuesday, Armless Tiger Man, and Turner D. Century to extract POTUS. Then they’ll all converge, take out Eradica (which will make all her drones stop too, right? That’s what happens in movies!) and escape. What could go wrong?

Zemo is a charmer - he has excuses and explanations to smooth over everything. But Dallas can’t shake the feeling he’s not to be trusted. Which is a good instinct, because Zemo is currently exploring what options he has to get her killed.
When Melissa goes to ask Chen Lu to keep Troll a secret, the pair quickly find their relationship escalating from coworkers to something less professional. Nothing wrong with a little workplace romance, right?
Meanwhile, Norah Winters’ continuing investigation into AKKΔBA yields a surprising connection. One of their chief donors is none other than Ichisumi Worthington, the wife (and, many assume, widow) of the Warren Worthington III!
Of course, Warren isn’t dead or missing; he’s on the Thunderbolts! While Moonstone has been trying her best, using an unconventional (and unethical) combination of psychotherapy, pharmaceuticals and bedroom antics to keep Archangel calm and controlled, the anger inside him has been building. And as it does, his memory has started to return.
And what he remembers might be trouble - for the Thunderbolts and AKKABA alike!

"WHILL OF THE UNKNOWN" Part 3
The Battle of the Way Station ensues! The villains seem to have some kind of force based abilities, which is pretty dangerous for our protagonists considering that Kylo Ren (the only one with force training) is trying to keep a low profile. Various members of the station get slaughtered in the crossfire as our two crews try desperately to survive.
While Han keeps the group on task to investigate the wreckage, Rey discovers potential force abilities as she saves herself and Finn from certain death at the hands of the Eyeless Ones. Kylo and the spice trader crew help evacuate people and distract the invaders from attacking innocents. In a crucial moment, Ben/Kylo allows himself to be taken prisoner by the Eyeless Ones so that the rest of the civilians can escape.
Han and crew uncover an encrypted transmission on the wreckage that finally identifies the bad guys. The First Order! They are apparently a dark side worshipping cult from the Unknown Regions with a deceptively deadly military force preparing for an all out invasion of the galaxy itself. The former crew of this wreckage died to trying to bring this crucial information back to the New Republic.
It comes out that Ben was impersonating Kylo Ren and now has been taken to First Order territory. Han has a choice: his duty as a New Republic officer to report this threat back to headquarters - or his duty as a father to bail his son out of trouble. There's never really any doubt as to what he will choose, although he gives the Dawn Treader crewmates the option to remain in the Known Regions.
Everyone decides to head to the Unknown Regions to rescue Ben Solo, while Han sends an encrypted message back to the New Republic. Will it (and the cavalry) arrive in time?

"THE PHANTOM MENACE" Part 3
We pick up in the capital of Alderaan as Queen Amidala and her bodyguard Quarsh Panaka deal with the increasing anxiety of negotiations with the Trade Federation blockade. Amidala's advisors are pressuring her to acquiesce to the invasion force. She knows that she called for Republic aid, but has no idea if the message was received or if help had already arrived and failed.
Unfortunately she takes too long to decide, having spent much time simply delaying negotiations with the Trade Federation. An advance force of clone soldiers bursts their way into the capital, clearly intent on a quick and efficient assassination of the Alderaan Queen. But Padme (and her guard for that matter) are far more competent and deadly than one might assume.
What follows is a chasing battle through the capital as clones massacre much of the palace's denizens (armed guards or otherwise). Padme and Panaka are eventually only separated from their escape ship by a door - and a hundred clone soldiers. All seems lost!
Until, of course, the timely arrival of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Honorless Soldier Jar Jar Binks (providing deadly accurate sniper support). Together the foursome make their way onto the escape ship and blast their way out of Alderaan. The only problem, of course, is that their pilot Panaka is critically injured and he will definitely bleed to death before they can successfully make it to Coruscant.
What's a Jedi Knight, Space Queen, and an alien Sharpshooter to do?

•The Master of Magnetism returns... just in time to become powerless! MAGNETO and an equally powerless PROFESSOR X had planned to use their most deadly creation to stop the magically transmogrified X-Men who've started killing mutantkind's enemies. Will they repurpose it to fight the Lawbringers?
