'Project Sulfur' Part 2 'Attack of The Giant-Size Woman-Things!'
•With the help of the resurrected ex-wife of former MAN-THING Ted Sallis, dread DIABLO recreated the SO-2 Serum which made Ted into a shambling horror. Esteban Corazón de Ablo didn't stop there, amplifying SO-2 with his abstruse alchemy to create an invasive floral species able to swallow an entire ecosystem... or dimension. And so Diablo became the ruler of Limbo, its now sylvan demons at his command.
•Dr. Ellen Brandt awoke in muck, a vegetable monster who knew itself to be human, whose will and genius were suborned to those of Diablo. She is no more able to help Ted and his companions than she is able to stop herself from helping Diablo in the next step of his plan.
•Every garden has a serpent. After beating each other senseless, MAGIK and the SCARLET WITCH are approached by two serpents! S'YM and N'ASTIRH may be infected with Diablo's verdant agent but they're still demons, and they offer the powerless heroes a chance to free themselves and damn themselves at the same time. While N'astirh works with AARKUS the VISION, DOCTOR STRANGE, and DOCTOR VOODOO on the base spell for a paranormal paraquat, S'ym infects Wanda, Illyana, ELSA BLOODSTONE, and AGATHA HARKNESS with a weakened version of the SO-2 Serum not bound to Diablo's will.
•While the sorcerers work, the denizens of Limbo and Diablo himself must brace themselves for the attack of the GIANT-SIZE WOMAN-THINGS!

The Hyborian Age. Steve Rogers and Jake Gallows, a.k.a. Punisher 2099, struggle to discover when they are. Although Jake’s universal translator allows them to communicate with the barbarian locals, nothing seems familiar. Textbooks never mentioned a brutal land called “Cimmeria.” They’re in an era of sword and sorcery lost to history that may be very, very long ago.
Have they any long-lived friends alive in this time period? Thor? Or perhaps Odin? Deciding the Asgardians are their best chance at returning home, they set out to find them… but discover lethal threats along the way. Marauding bands from Nordheim to the north and Picts from the west threaten the frigid land, but more insidious are the cults dedicated to the long-forgotten Elder Gods, the most menacing of whom… is Chthon! Can the heroes from the future save a Cimmerian village from a Chthonic necromancer and his undead minions? What consequences will Steve’s attempt to do so have?
Meanwhile, in the current year, Chinese forces that were sent by the Mandarin into Madripoor to help fight the Negation Wave (see NEGATION: THE HOME FRONT #4) still haven’t left. Madripoor’s Chancellor, Tyger Tiger, in the past would have reached out to “Captain America” Steve Rogers for help. But the loyalties of “Captain America” Arkady Rossovich are far more dubious as she suspects he is in the Mandarin’s pocket. Who can she turn to?

“Screw the Benefits, I Want My Powers Back!”
F Squared is settling quite well into their new digs in the Midtown Manhattan Baxter Building. New York’s Senators, relieved that Dr. Storm will not be seeking a statewide office, welcome our team to the Big Apple. Reed and Hank have set up their respective laboratories and have started work while Jennifer Walters flexes her legal muscles in making sure F^2 Inc. maintains full compliance with NYC’s ecological guidelines.
Jenn’s legal muscle are all she currently has as her Gamma induced alter-ego She-Hulk has been out of her system since “One More Day”. We published a trade PB and everything.

As for our fearless leader, Johnny Storm, he’s touring Jack Kirby High School, Ben Grimm’s Alma Mater on the so-called mission of telling students about the new team and its mission, but is really trying to dig up clues as to where Ben Grimm might be. Ben’s monstrous transformation at the end of Negation left him totally deflated and depressed causing him to go off on his own. While finding some clues, he does find another genius to bulk up his fantasy comicbook superteam roster. Lunella Lafayette, a nine year old girl of incalculable (well, off the scale, anyway) intelligence and a personality that makes Sheldon Cooper (google him too, kids) seem actually personable.
“But wait, there’s more!” (yep, another google assignment) Nadia Pym is on patrol as the Wasp and comes across Paste Pot Pete. Pete received a pardon for his role in the Negation event, but is close to veering off onto another dark path. Other teens bring home stray dogs, Nadia Pym brings home stray super-villains.

1616 B.C. A young Thor and Loki were sent by Odin to secure Midgard’s Northlands against Olympian influence. It didn’t go well. Ares counseled Zeus to immediately go to war. Zeus heeded other advice. Now, Thor “God of Thunder” Odinson, with Loki in his corner, finds himself in a wrestling match for control of the European continent against “the Lion of Olympus,” “the Prince of Power,” the undefeated 12-time Labor champion and he who put the “glad” in gladiator: Hercules!

Where did it begin?
The Worthington Family goes way back. Old name, older money. Warren, third of his name, grew up with everything he could have wanted.
Boarding school in Westchester, summers in the Hamptons and Bali, ski trips to the family mansion in Colorado. Dates with wonderful girls: Cressida Desford; Bera: Avia; Amanda Cobb; Candy Southern.
He wasn’t even a normal human. He was born different. Special. Mutant. And beautiful. Gorgeous wings, the gift of flight. The stuff of dreams
Ivy League university. When he roomed with Cameron Hodge, their dorm bore his family’s name. Semesters abroad in Paris, Barcelona, Osaka. He had it all.
When you have everything you could have ever wanted before you even knew you wanted it, what is there to dream of?
The thought struck him at a young age. He didn’t let people know. He tried to keep the truth even from himself. To all who knew him, he was the golden boy, the angel with his head in the clouds and a smile on his face. But when he lay in bed at night, unable to sleep, he couldn’t stop himself from thinking about it:
Akkabatology, like all cults, targets the vulnerable. Vulnerability comes in many forms. For the shining Warren Worthington, his vulnerability was the shadow behind his smile, the sadness in his eyes. When Ozymandius saw that void in the heart of the billionaire Scion, he sensed opportunity.
Have you ever had the sense that something is missing from your life?
The Angel took to the teachings like a moth to a flame. “The void in your heart,” it said, “is not your own. We will fill that void. Give of yourself, and we will give unto you.”
There’s someone I’d like you to meet...
Warren was introduced to Ichisumi Kishi early on in his Akkabatology journey. She recognized his sadness for it was her own. She too was born to old money, wanted for nothing. Life had seemed nothing but a plague, a pestilence forced upon her. But then Ozymandius had found her, had shown her truth of Akkabatology, the Revelation.
Anything for the cause...
To the outside world, it seemed a whirlwind romance. But where Ozymandius’ plans ended and their feelings began was unclear. Millions of dollars from Warren’s private holdings were already being funneled annually into Akkabatology by the time they were married. By the time their twins, Uriel and Eimin, were born, Ozymandius owned more of Warren’s life than the man himself. Ozymandius used that money to fund the rebrand of the cult into AKKΔBA, as well as his own transformation into Ramses.
It wasn’t enough for AKKΔBA. It never is for people like them. All Warren wanted was something to live for. And so he gave of himself his mutant body. And so they made of him:

Rognar has been spending more and more time with Dr. Damian and her science classes. And although Peter’s Spidey-Sense went off big time when Rognar was introduced as a possible survivor or descendant of a heretofore unknown species of prehistoric man, Peter happily videoed the entire event for exclusive rights to the Daily Bugle website. The credibility given to Steve Ditko High with Dr. Margo Damian’s work may actually keep NYC from closing it down at the end of this school year.
But the big decision is, can Margo Damian pull off an Antarctic trip to investigate clues of Rognar’s people? And will her students Peter, Gwen, and Mary Lane go with her? Will Christmas at the South Pole be a thing now?
Outside of school, Adrian Toomes, the Vulture, having been released from prison has a position as a spokesperson for Fisk spices. His slogan, “In my long life, I’ve never seen anything make things happen like Fisk. Lawyers for the man known as Vermin, the human rat, argue for his release based on the fact that he was brought in as human, but is not a humanoid rat creature who was not responsible for his actions.

After a stint with the New Annihilators, saving the universe from the forces of Charon, JENNIFER KALE is going back home to Citrusville, Florida.

Ozymandius — or Ramses, as he rebranded himself — is beginning to realize that all the money in the world won’t do him any good if he’s decapitated.
And unfortunately for him, Archangel seems intent on doing just that.
The only thing standing in his way is... Ichisumi, his estranged wife.
The Thunderbolts are under orders to calm things down, but AKKΔBA’s armed guards don’t take their word for it.
As you’d expect from a cult leader, Ramses has no hesitation using his followers as human shields. But Moonstone and Carnage have no compunctions about shedding blood.
Melissa and Chen Lu do their best to incapacitate Archangel, but the Death Seed in Warren makes him more than a match.
The Death Seed. The priceless artifact that Ramses used to transform and empower Warren. The trauma of the process sent Warren into a frenzy and cost him his memory. Now that he remembers, Warren has had an epiphany.
AKKΔBA took everything from him. If he can’t take it all back, he’ll burn it down.
As, one by one, each Thunderbolt falls, stopping Death seems hopeless. Then Ramses pulls out the last trick he has up his sleeve.
He shows Archangel the one sight to bring him out of his murderous haze: his children, fetched by a handler from the depths of the AKKΔBA Compound.
A moment of calm descends... but for how long?

•Mutants have started assembling at telepathically designated areas for transport to Asteroid X which floats at the L5 Lagrange point beside Earth and the Moon. While one magically-enhanced mutant, whether demon-mutant or X-Man, guards each site, some mutants are waylaid on their way there.

Written by MARY SHELLY
At the behest of Chthon himself, Balder the Brave was afforded a tour of the Dark Realms (see THE MIGHTY THOR #34-35). How appropriate, he thinks, that this tour coincides with the Norse equivalent to Halloween: Alfablót. For his next stop is the horrifying Allograft, home to the Fleshcrafters who create golems from parts of the dead. It is from this world that Dr. Frankenstein drew his inspiration - an entire realm of mad scientists and their reanimated monsters.
Unfortunately for Balder, body-parts from a Vanir/Aesir hybrid like himself are highly coveted in Allograft’s fleshcrafting circles. Even with Chthon’s stamp of protection, some unscrupulous harvesters are willing to take a chance… because they want your body!

The dream team from the critically acclaimed “Old Moon Crone” series brings the genius girl to present day AOM-NU land. Lunella Lafayette by the calendar has a few years of prime Trick or Treating left and her parents want their girl to earn them fun sized 3 Musketeers. The truth is no one on Yancy Street dares to give out anything sub par as there are comments made regarding the Necco Wafers given out in ’04. By comments we mean near nuclear retaliation.
Instead of heading out and hunting the best path for the optimum take within the allowed timespan and accounting for the relative family value placed on type and size of candy, Lunella has been raking in over a dozen Reeses Cups a year. But she has decided to retire and give it out for a change. After all, she IS graduating from Jack Kirby High School any day now. Sound chips, projectors, and remote sensors have been placed all along the building so that every pedestrian is followed and welcomed to the neighborhood.
It’ll be fun. It’ll be interesting. It’ll cause the city of New York to rewrite Trick or Treat rules for Yancy Street next year.

With liberal applications of Javanne's Enervation of Will by mages Rhialto the Marvellous and Ildefonse the Preceptor to render them compliant, the first four contestants take to their rings: bog god SWAMP THING vs giant-size MAN-THING, and immortal DOCTOR MIST vs necromantic DOCTOR VOODOO! From the shadows, the first two contestants watch other mages being summoned, correctly identifying the use of Manly Lieber's Marvelous De-Causalization to break temporal determinism, then King Kurtzberg's Timely Decalcomania to transport targets across epochs and dimensions. The greatest wizards of this fallen age thought the young women a mere pre-show match but their wills were too strong for the Enervation, and they helped each other escape.
