FEAR ITSELF #2
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“NONE BUT THE BRAVE”
“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
As the world is gripped by Fear Itself, with nations being divvied up amongst the invading Horror Gods, it’s defenders continue to fall before Chthon’s onslaught. Our only hope may lie… with Balder the Brave!
Chthon’s greatest weakness has always been hubris. He recorded all of his spells in the accursed Darkhold. All of them, including the one that could reseal the borders of K’Lay and return the Realms of the Horror Gods back to their eternal prison in the Dark World Tree. That means, to prevail… Balder must obtain the Darkhold. The skull of Malekith tells him that the damnable grimoire is currently in the possession of an ancient lich, Thulsa Doom, and protected by the Darkholders cult (plus who knows how many newly arrived vampires, werewolves, Frankensteins, lagoon creatures, and invisible men) in the ever-dark, subterranean kingdom of Abysmia. To steal and use it, Balder will need mystically inclined help…
Sorcerers are absolutely required. When Earth is invaded by nightmares, who better than the Son of Satan, Damian Hellstrom, and the succubus queen, Shiklah, to answer the call?
Muscle is also a necessity. That will come in the form of the magically empowered unstoppable Juggernaut!
But to truly defeat the Horror Gods, Balder will need to use their own against them. The werewolves already mobilized, bringing Werewolf by Night and his Uncanny Wolfmen into the fold. Blade and Morbius, too, did not wait to take the fight to the vampires. With them in tow, Balder also drafts the one-man amphibious assault team, Manphibian, and his most unpredictable recruit - a Frankensteined composite of severed Deadpool parts known as… ahem… Evil Deadpool!
Can Balder lead this unlikely assemblage - these Brave Midnight Sons - to victory? Or is the mission cursed?

•The UNI-MIND is peaceful. KARKAS prays for his fallen, foolish friend. SERSI finally awakens, her energy draining link to the Δσ apparently severed. Warlord KRO asks his sometimes lover THENA what they'll find once the Uni-Mind reaches the center of the island. She remembers now, she remembers everything about Ωσ but the knowledge shames her.
•The tall, transparent silver Ψσ encircle ground zero of the Great Experiment which forced Sunken Mu to be chronal locked half a million years ago. Whatever the cosmic energy-spewing entity they worship is, it exists on multiple Lagrangian submanifolds at once so a time dilation field on Earth only slowed down some of its evolution.
•The Deviant ruins surrounding Ωσ reveal the greatest secret of the Eternals: Deviant gene-priests first isolated the cosmic energy that empowered the Eternals, not the Eternals' first leader KRONOS! An accident much like the one which would drastically enhance the Eternals' powers obviously happened on Sunken Mu, an accident Kronos covered up while stealing Deviant knowledge to try to perfect the cosmic energy infusion technique.
•Deviants could have been godlike, beautiful, eternal... but Eternals stole their fire.
•The emotional stability of the Uni-Mind is shattered.
•Meanwhile... DEEP ONES from Yacuran's blackest lagoon Y'ha-nthlei continue their slow march to the heart of Sunken Mu. One of the dimensions touched by Ωσ is that of K’Lay, the Dark World Tree, and the Deep Ones know Ωσ as UBBO-SATHLA, the Unbegotten Source. With everything from the Dark World Tree running free on Earth, Ubbo-Sathla must be free, too!

Jennifer Walters, attorney for the F² Foundation, is taking her turn stating her case for the defense. She is surprised by Victor Von Doom declaring himself her co-council. Doom, of course, is licensed to practice law in Latveria. Since Von Doom is on trial with the Torches and the kids, the TVA accepts his “request”, leaving our heroes a bit flummoxed.

On the proposed escape attempt with the rest of the team, Reed, Hank, Ben, and company listen to a proposal from the strange “colonizer” Tana Nile about how to get to the TVA. Tana Nile introduces her allies, Bolo, Xemu, and Tiboro. Those three are from a five-dimensional realm and they are a bit … unusual. Tiboro is a sixth dimensional being.

FEAR ITSELF: FEAR AND LOATHING IN ALLOGRAFT #2
Writer: WARREN ELLIS (Transmetropolitan)
Artist: RALPH STEADMAN (Rolling Stone)
Gardening Editor: CaptCleghorn
“Reed's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Superhero Gangs!”
The realm of Allograft has opened to the planet. Those who deal fear with their attempts to use science untampered by common decency have a new enemy. His name is Reed Richards and he is not going to stop them, but out do them. It was obvious that he was a man who marched through life to the rhythms of some drum I would never hear.
In a land where Gods and Monsters were the goal, Richards wanted angels to serve and build him up. A man who has blown all his options can’t afford the luxury of changing his ways. He has to capitalize on whatever he has left, and he can’t afford to admit — no matter how often he’s reminded of it — that every day of his life takes him farther and farther down a blind alley…
Those angels would seemingly be from Hell. Reed gets them from anywhere he can and brings them to the Edge, giving them power. The Edge... There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others-the living-are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there.

Meanwhile, another battle rages… inside Hulk’s headspace. The Insatiable Hulk is a vampiric persona, an outside entity currently dominating the great green body.

So many millions of years ago, there was a grand pantheon that came to be known as the Elder Gods. The darkest amongst them, Chthon, cared little for any of his peers. Instead he dedicated his eternal life to esoteric study and research. His primary drive was the pursuit of knowledge and the means to manipulate the natural world, bending it to his will. He became the first sorcerer and essentially discovered black magic.
While Gaea obsessed over her primitive Earthly mammals, Chthon instead explored how to transform them into sundry monsters. This was the root of their rivalry, an acrimonious feud that would last all eternity… until now!
Finally free and with a captive supply of humans that had multiplied exponentially, what new monsters will he create? And who could possibly stop him?

Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“HELIOCENTRIC”
He is the slayer of Thor and the deity that made the liberation of Chthon and his Horror Gods possible. But why the first son of Gaea, Atum, turned on his own mother has been a mystery… until now!
Atum was born with a purpose: to stop the elder gods, most of whom had largely degenerated into corrupt, malevolent demons. Yet as he defeated and devoured them (the only sure way to kill a god), he metabolized their evil. He became… the Demogorge! He always lamented this change.
When the vast majority of elder gods were gone, Atum tried something new. Under the name Amon Ra, he begat and ruled a new generation of gods from celestial Heliopolis , worshipped in ancient Egypt and beyond. But still, he felt the compulsion to fulfill the purpose for which he was born. He eventually abandoned his throne and sought out more evil gods to consume. His quest lead him to… K’Lay. The Dark World Tree was a veritable smorgasbord, as Chthon had millennia to cultivate evil divinity therein. It was… overwhelming. Soon, his digestion changed his personality. It made him open to Chthon’s influence. As the ancient adage goes, “you are what you eat.”
And then he ate Thor, the greatest godly hero of our time. Was it enough for Atum to regain the perspective he lost? Within him, what little remains of Thor wages war against an ocean of godly villainy. Is it enough?

Worse, the corpse is controlled by the mind-swapped consciousness of demon-mutant PHENEX. Worse still, Phenex used Jean's telekinesis to damage the vessel's main systems, forcing Sanguine Silence to land on Phobos to run diagnostics. In her normal body, Phenex has a death touch. In Jean's zombie body, however, she feels an overwhelming hunger for thoughts, memories, and emotions.
•When plasma rounds and depleted uranium bullets can't breach Jean's telekinetic field, Sanguine Silence jumps ship in a escape pod. Zombie Jean doesn't need to breathe, and the last thing the Crimson Pirate sees is a skeletal bird of psionic prey engulfing her mind and the pod instants before it crashes into the other moon of Mars, Deimos.
