Writer: CHRISTOPHER PRIEST

Plot: MARVELL2100
“NO COUNTRY FOR OLD SPIES”
There is no Helicarrier. There are no hi-tech weapons. No flying cars. No thousands of agents around the world running a sophisticated intelligence agency. There is no SHIELD. Just a spy without a country. Nick Fury has seen many things in his long life but he never thought he would see the day when forces that work from the shadows are so close to ruling the world. Even in his own country, the tide of fascism seems to be rising as a pandemic and racial tensions have the nation on edge. What can one man do against the dark forces that seem to be one step away from world domination? From unleashing chaos and anarchy around the world? When you're Nick Fury it's simple: put together a team capable of going places that super-heroes can't and getting their hands dirty when super-heroes won't. Scorpio (Marcus Johnson), Diamondback (Rachel Leighton), Nomad (Jack Monroe), Widowmaker (Roz Solomon) and Agent 13 (Sharon Carter). These are the people who fight the shadows. They are...The Agents of Fury! Next Issue: I Pledge Allegiance!32 PGS./Rated T+...$3.99

AMAZING FANTASY #11

Plot by CAPTCLEGHORN

“SCALES, FEATHERS, AND WEBS” starring Spider-Man
Curt Conners’ attempt to regrow his arm using his new attempt at cellular regeneration has turned him into a lizard-like being with two arms … and a tail. The amount of Conners’ intellect still in this Lizard being is questionable. It’s even worse when the guiding force of the Lizard is the Vulture who apparently has few, if any, qualms about using the Lizard to fulfill his every wish.
And Spider-Man’s problem is more than beating two super-powered characters, it’s trying to pull any actual medical benefit out of the process.
And in our Fantasy/Horror back-up…

A bunch of drunk college kids decide to split up into two groups and play the time honored party game and social wonder, Spin the Bottle. Sounds like something that will probably end badly but not be that badly, right? It seems the 13 people split into 2 groups of seven each and the person from each group goes into a closet for, well, whatever. Oh, seven plus seven isn’t thirteen? Darn the luck, one of them doesn’t belong. And will the partygoers find the intruder before the intruder has the bottle pointing at them?

CIVIL WAR Epilogue
“BETWEEN HEAVEN & HELL”
The Civil War is over. The United States has withdrawn from its alliance with the All-Mother Frey and her allies, signing the Treaty of Brooklyn Heights and officially ceasing hostilities with Asgard. Captain America’s focus, now, is making sure this never happens again.
To King Thor’s credit, Asgard has pledged reparations to the nation it invaded. These come in the form of advanced technologies, including designs for a Bifrost. What Cap values most, however, are the Valkyries. They have agreed to bring back as many fallen souls as they can from Valhalla. Cap had seen war, but never before could the casualties be negated. Yet the process is not without dangers, and the Valkyries are asking for his help! What do these angelic beings need from a Star-spangled super soldier?
Meanwhile, the nation remains starkly divided. The Civil War failed to unify the country against a common threat, as Cap had hoped it might. A pandemic, civil unrest, and a contentious election between two candidates that nearly allowed a blue Elder of the Universe to become POTUS (see All-WINNERS SQUAD vs. LIBERTY LEGION #1-4) are pulling at the ties that bind the nation together... and there are those that seek to pull harder until it all unravels. Omega Red has not given up his effort to raise a new Soviet Union from the ashes of America - though now he has a different adversary: Bucky Barnes. After being the first soul returned by the Valkyries, Bucky reflects on the injustices of his previous life. The Winter Soldier was enslaved and tortured by the Soviets for decades and he will not allow that evil to take root in his home. He makes it his mission to stop Omega Red and his movement... by any means necessary!

Plot by NX01A
Written by KIERON GILLEN
Art by J. H. WILLIAMS III
Theme Song: Gealdýr - Ginnungagap
”RAGNARÖKALYPSE” part 4/finale ”GODSTORM”
•Yggdrasill, the world tree, is an energy field that supports, connects, and nurtures the Ten Realms. It sometimes sprouts seeds, and APOCALYPSE has used one such seed to open a portal into the primal darkness of Ginnungagap. If the portal widens, Ginnungagap will destabilize the World Tree and collapse the Ten Realms, leaving only a sapling pocket dimension hidden by Apocalypse within the corpse of Yggdrasill, a new realm solely for his chosen Ú-Fólk, mutants he will rule for eternity.
•Only luck saved those not protected by Apocalypse from the detonation of Asteroid A, and luck is the SCARLET WITCH's play thing. The survivors are strewn across the roots of Yggdrasill as the void yawns wider and gods do battle above. STRØM, goddess of thunder, discovers her opponent is not the true THOR. He is an Æsirborg, an Asgardian clone of Thor augmented with Celestial cybernetics who calls himself RAGNARÖK, and it will take all of Ørørø's newfound divinity to put this mad god down.
•While MAGIK closes the rift to Ginnungagap with a teleportation disk of her own, Apocalypse escapes with his chosen, including unconscious QUICKSILVER, badly beaten COLOSSUS, plus a green-haired woman MAGNETO claims is another of his daughters, and a blonde man XAVIER says is the brother of the X-Men's field leader, CYCLOPS!
•He may have failed to bring about the fabled Norse twilight of the gods but Apocalypse believes he has genetic resources powerful enough to end the world in another way. They will be his FOUR HORSEMEN, and they will bring about Armageddon!

FANTASTIC FOUR #23 *CIVIL WAR TIE-IN*
Written by KELLY SUE DECONNICK
Plot by CAPTCLEGHORN
Art by TOM GRUMMETT
What’s left of the FF remembers that after a Civil War comes…
“RECONSTRUCTION (PART 1): FANTASTIC VOYAGE”
The Civil War between Cap and Thor is over, but the Fantastic Four is dealing with their casualties. The Torch has been in a coma since the Battle for Area 44. Blood clots are keeping his brain from working properly and Johnny’s cosmic ray altered structure is making those clots impossible to deal with using current medical treatment. This is a problem that only two of the greatest scientific minds on Earth could possibly solve. Dr. Reed Richards, currently incarcerated in a federal facility, and Henry Pym, creator of the Pym Particle which allows a human being to shrink to microscopic size.
The plan seems basic. Shrink, zap some clots, and wake Johnny up. But normal human beings are unable to live in the fiery, cosmic radiated blood stream of the Human Torch, so Reed needs to use Pym’s equipment to go inside Johnny’s body and save him. But this is the man who blinded Reed’s best friend. He’s also Reed’s brother-in-law.
Meanwhile Senator Sue Storm (Reed Richards’ wife) is playing politics by trying to save her brother’s life and also keep her ex-teammates out of prison, no matter what they did. And is there a way to save the Thing’s eyesight?

THE MIGHTY THOR #23
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE

CIVIL WAR Epilogue
“WHAT’S SO CIVIL ABOUT WAR, ANYWAY?”
The Civil War is over. King Thor has made peace with the Americans and persuaded them to withdraw from their alliance with his treacherous step-mother Freyja. Yet, this was not without cost...
Recovered from his near-fatal stabbing, the former All-Father and King of Asgard, Odin, grapples with the radical actions of his son and successor. In granting all Nine Realms independence, Thor casually cast millennia of blood and effort to the wind. Odin fought wars to bring the Realms together under his rule so that he could protect and shape them as a benevolent monarch. Now, left to their own devices without a strong guiding hand, surely they will fall into chaos, disarray, and disharmony. His son, poisoned by American mysticism, doesn’t understand this. But he will. “Thor... I would have words with thee!”
On Midgard, General “Thunderbolt” Ross’ support for Freyja and his ill-advised violent clash with Captain America resulted in the President delivering two fateful words: “You’re fired!” With his biggest detractor now out of authority, Bruce Banner can finally begin to contemplate what he had dared not dream of during his two years of exile... the possibility of returning home! But is Earth ready for the Hulk? And is the Hulk ready to leave the new life he’s made amongst the Asgardian refugees?
Meanwhile, Freyja’s forces now span a mere three Realms. She’s at her weakest point since launching her coup d'état... but a cornered animal is when it’s most dangerous. In her desperation, she will beseech a cosmic entity... and the In-Betweener will answer!
