“SLAY QUEEN”
She was the KGB’s most lethal asset, mentally enslaved and genetically modified to be the perfect spy and assassin: the proportionate strength and agility of a spider; wall-crawling; natural camouflage; untraceable bio-electric “venom blasts”; and deceptive beauty to beguile any man. Yet when the Soviet Union collapsed, their “Black Widow” project was abandoned… and Natasha Romanoff was free.
Now she plies her trade as a mercenary, supplying espionage and wet-works primarily to the U.S. government. But new competition emerges that wants to put her out of business… and in the ground!
On her last mission for the KGB, Natasha eliminated a prolific British arms manufacturer named Spencer Smythe. There was collateral damage: Spencer’s young son Alistair was inadvertently paralyzed during her attack. Now, Alistair is all grown up and a genius weapons designer himself. He aims to prove that his robot Spider-Slayers are far more effective and reliable than enhanced-human operatives like Romanoff - and what better way to prove that… than by having them kill her?

Sam had already carved a niche for himself in the U.S. Air Force as a decorated pararescueman, flying countless successful missions with the jet-powered Exo-7 Wings under callsign: “Falcon.” When it was discovered that he was one of the very few humans alive that might be receptive to the Erskine Super-Soldier Serum, he was a natural choice for Operation: Rebirth to tap as the next Captain America… but the pressure is high. He doesn’t want to end up a cautionary tale like Bob Russo - K.I.A. while failing his first mission as Cap.
Fortunately, Sam’s first mission doesn’t seem that out of the ordinary for him: it’s a covert infil and extraction. A terrorist group has taken a prominent journalist captive in the South China Sea on Scarborough Shoal, an atoll currently the subject of a territorial dispute between China and the Philippines. Sam needs to fly in under the radar, rescue this Sally Floyd, and escape without being seen by either Chinese or Filipino forces. Just another day at the office!
As for the terrorist group, there’s not much intel. They might be new. Chatter did pick up one phrase: “Hail HYDRA!” What do you suppose that means?

“AN ISLAND ONTO HIMSELF”
We’ve all heard the urban legend. In 1963, Gamma Bomb testing unleashed some kind of monster that went on a rampage in the American Southwest and then disappeared. Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, however, knows it’s no mere legend. He was there. He saw it. And since then, he’s dedicated his life to tracking down this… Hulk, a brutish creature that was once the brilliant scientist Dr. Bruce Banner.
Now Ross has his most promising lead in decades: newly sensitive gamma-detecting satellites suggest that the Hulk may have taken refuge on an uncharted island somewhere off the coast of South America. Ross’ daughter Betty insists on joining him and his team of commandos on this reconnaissance mission… if for no other reason than to prove that her father has wasted his life chasing ghosts.
What they find on Isla de Sakaar is a savage, forgotten world of danger: enormous monsters; sentient insects; and primitive natives - the Oldstrong - that want to sacrifice intruders to their immortal, incredible god! Ironically, their only hope to survive may be the Hulk himself - but he just wants to be left alone!
Ross, however, isn’t the only one to detect the Hulk’s gamma signature. Another monster has arisen… and this Abomination instinctually senses that he can consume the Hulk’s power to become the Earth’s undisputed apex predator!

Plot by H-E-D
Backup Story by JESSE JACOBS
Nobody in Citrusville, Florida has an easy life.
Jenny Kale was no exception.
As a kid, her parents were always in-and-out of jail. Petty theft, drug possession, the crimes of the poor and desperate.
So Jenny went to live with her grandparents, and for a while, things were better.
Her grandparents were the funny, New-Agey mystic types. Their house was full of old books, charms from around the world, healing crystals, the works.
When, right out of high school, Jenny found out she was a few months pregnant, they weren’t mad. Disappointed, sure, but it was practically a family tradition. Florida being Florida, alternatives were not available.
So Jenny stayed in Citrusville. No time for college, no money either.
Raising her son Andy with her grandparents, Jenny made what money she could putting on a show down at the Juicy Orange. Living one day at a time.
But now, her Grandpa is going senile — dementia hitting him fast and hard.
With proper medicine too expensive, a desperate Jenny is about to crack open her Grandpa’s old spellbook.
Combined with a black market dose of the experiment dementia drug SO-2, she hopes her spell will rejuvenate her grandfather.
When in actuality, it will transform him into the infernal MAN-THING — and set in motion a chain of events leading to Jenny Kale claiming her secret birthright, the power of the SPELLBINDER!

Backup Story by MARÍA MEDEM
Their civilization has many names among the surface-worlders. Atlantis. Talokan. Mahabalipuram. Kásskara. Yonaguni. Shī Chéng. Ys.
But they simply call themselves the People, and their civilization, the Sea.
At the turn of the twentieth century, off the coast of the Yucatán, a child was born to a Royal Family of the Sea. A child of two world.
He too would have many names. Prince. Namor. K'uk'ulkan. But the one the world would remember was given to him on the surface world. Sub-Mariner.
The People did not ignore the happenings of the surface. When the Nazi regime spewed their vile war and genocide across Europe, the People were disgusted. The Sea would send a champion, to end this war. Namor volunteered.
The title Sub-Mariner was first coined by his enemies, survivors of U-Boats flung impossibly from the water. He took it as a badge of pride.
The War was won, but someone was lost. The Sub-Mariner never returned to the Sea. Not even the Allies knew what happened.
Nearly a hundred years later, a young woman in San Francisco discovers a shocking truth: the handsome unhoused man at the shelter she volunteers at is actually this almost mythic hero! Can she help him regain his memories? Almost as important… how did he lose them? What has become of the People and the Sea?
Once those questions are answered, one remains… is the Sub-Mariner still defend of the surface world, or its greatest enemy?

“THE GOD OF ANTIQUITY”
Over 1000 years ago…
They were the Vikings: the mightiest of norsemen, destined to conquer the unworthy. And he was their patron god: Thor, the thunderer - a deity who would not merely passively listen to prayers but who would fight side-by-side with his worshippers! He marched with them across Northumbria, capturing York and triumphing over England’s Black Knight. He sailed with them up the Seine to defeat the King of Franks, Charlemagne, and his paladins. He defended Svíþjóð from invading Curonians alongside King Sigurd Hring the Dragonslayer. He did all this, and then... Ragnarök.
Now.
Thor awakens in 2023, his last memory a seemingly fatal trade-of-blows with Jörmungandr the World Serpent. But that was… so long ago. Did he die? If so, how does he live once more? The stars tell him he is on Midgard, yet everything has changed. His home, the godly realm of Asgard, is unreachable. He feels in his bones that his people, the Aesir, are all dead. Even his worshippers, the Vikings, have abandoned him and their faith, consigning both to mere mythology. What will he do now? There seems to be no place for a Viking God in the modern world. Can the man who revived him, Dr. Donald Blake, help him find his way?
Meanwhile, news of Thor’s seeming rebirth sends ripples through the world’s clandestine power structure. In the centuries since Thor’s “death,” the offspring of Jörmungandr - reptilian humanoid shapeshifters - have formed an influential and secret illuminati to manipulate human events… and this Serpent Society wants their ancient enemy Thor to stay dead!

•As she attends Clea during a meeting of the Dimensional Lords, Illyana realizes her life has been too happy, too loving. She's faced Sentinels and sentient dimensions but she and her companions have always won. Looking at BELASCO of Limbo, she sees the floundering reality around him where his gibbering masters await freedom from their imprisonment outside Creation, and she finds it hard to remember what winning even is...

There can be no placating her, no creating an illusory history so her mind doesn't crack and take the solar system and adjoining planes with it.
•The timely arrival of AGATHA HARKNESS and her shocking suggestion seal the fate of Earth and Limbo. With DOCTOR STRANGE and CLEA standing by to minimize what could be a trans-dimensionally catastrophe, Xavier ultimately wakes MAGIK!
