CAPTAIN AMERICA #10 Plot by EXCITER Written by FRANK MILLER Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY “BRAVE NEW M.O.D.O.K.” The year is 2049, and M.O.D.O.K.’s plan has succeeded... With mass-produced Super Adaptoids flooding the market, the working class have been essentially automated out of existence. Where once all anyone needed was a strong work ethic to succeed, now human labor is virtually worthless, and the vast majority of people live in poverty. M.O.D.O.K.’s Intelligentsia rules from ivory towers in coastal cities - and, he believes, does so benevolently. Inhumane meat and toxic gluten have been outlawed. Lines for the recommended daily allotment of nutritional soy-based foodstuffs are a reasonable four hours long on average. Dangerous instruments like guns and sharp knives can only be possessed by government agents. Potentially harmful ideologies and activities like Christianity and pro football have been criminalized. Predatory men who make unsolicited advances upon women are summarily executed. All is well! With celebrity now the most noble virtue, the public is largely mollified by streaming devices and social media. Sanitation squads are swiftly dispatched to cancel those few who vocalize problematic opinions. But not all bow. Those who can’t afford the crushing carbon tax face imprisonment for breathing and begin to resist. Many people want their precious freedoms back, and an elderly Steve Rogers leads the charge! But can even he combat M.O.D.O.K.’s brand of progress? If he couldn’t defeat one Super Adaptoid when he was in his prime (see CAPTAIN AMERICA #8), how can he possibly beat a national workforce of them now? Meanwhile, Mockingbird looks out upon the borderless land she effectively rules as M.O.D.O.K.’s domestic partner and thinks... What have I done? Her intentions were good, but somehow she didn’t see “George Tarleton” for what he was... a tyrant. He currently busies himself constructing a time machine because, in M.O.D.O.K.’s view, the continued existence of garbage people like Rogers is due solely to the fact that their current utopia was built upon the bones of the America that Rogers’ once captained - a fundamentally unfair, oppressive, and irrationally dangerous place. M.O.D.O.K. plans to change that by removing things from the past... but can Mockingbird execute her plan instead and get back on the right side of history?

The great cities are nearly destroyed. Young Tony Stark looks at the destruction all around him with the words of Kang Still ringing in his ears, "You are to blame!" As he asks what happened to Earth, Kang tells Tony that his dream of taking humanity to the stars was accomplished but it came at a terrible price! Contact with alien races led to Earth to becoming a target. Being a young race in a vast universe, it was no match for the older races who stripped of it's resources and left it as a broken husk. Earth's defenders fought valiantly but they were overwhelmed and died in defense of their world. You caused this Tony, Kang continues, because of your ego and pride believing that you could venture into the black and not escape the notice of the gods, tyrants and demons who inhabit the universe. As he prepares to depart, Kang leaves Tony with a warning: Stay home Earth man, you are not ready for the future. Do not let your foolish notions cause the destruction of all that you hold dear. Hours later, Kang reappears in another location in this timeframe. A figure hides in the shadows and asks Kang if he was successful. Kang tells him yes, Tony Stark will not be a problem and their plans can proceed. Here is the technology that you will need. Arno Starks steps forward to accept his prize. "You were always the favored Tony", he thinks to himself. "This time I will be the one to lead Earth to the stars and you will be nothing but a forgotten memory"! Bonus material: No one else saw it coming. No one else knew the devastation that would mark a major changing point in human history. She did. She tried to warn them. But no one would listen. The Iron Man of the 24th century Riri Williams looks and sees a world run by robots, where free will is dead and humans serve A.I. masters! And its all the fault of one man, her mentor Tony Starks! 32 PGs./Rated T+... .99 cents

THE MIGHTY THOR #10 Plot by EXCITER Written by ALAN MOORE Art by MIKE MIGNOLA “YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED...” part two “UNTIL DEATH” Well-wishers prayed it would be the happiest of days, but the Royal Wedding of Prince Thor and Lady Sif was fated to end in tragedy. As the All-Father Odin completed his grand speech, he was viciously stabbed in the gut by one whom he never believed would dare betray him... his wife and Thor’s stepmother, Queen Frigga! The All-Mother, a Vanir of Vanaheim, declared her actions taken on behalf of her people - to throw off the shackles of oppression long ago foisted upon them by the rulers of the Nine Realms - Odin’s Asgardian Aesir. And she wasn’t alone. Regicide was the signal to her rebel cabal. It meant “begin the attack!” The Draugr of Niffleheim under the skeletal undead King Thrain. The Dark Elves of Svartalfheim under their sorcerous master Malekith. The ever-burning warriors of Musphelheim under Aldrnari the Incinerator. The reptilian Jormungandi under their dragon overlord Fin Fang Foom. And the men of Midgard, under General Thunderbolt Ross, with his his newest recruit - Cain Marko, the unstoppable Juggernaut! These unlikely armies breech the walls of a distracted and unprepared Asgard, plunging the Realms into civil war! So begins the Götterdämmerung... Thor, a pregnant Sif, and their wedding party that includes Bruce Banner, new King of Jotunheim Loki, and the troll leader Ulik, are immediately placed on the defensive. Holding Asgard may be impossible, but can Thor even manage to lead a retreat and recover his father’s body? Plus, Balder the Brave is a god torn between two Realms. Unlike Thor and Loki, he is the blood child of both Odin and Frigga: half Aesir, half Vanir, with allegiance to both. Will he fight his own mother... or join her? 32 PGs./Rated T+ …$2.99
