CAPTAIN AMERICA #36
Plot by EXCITER
Written by FRANK MILLER
Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
“THE SAVAGE SHIELD OF CAPTAIN AMERICA” part three “FUNNY MEETING YULE HERE”
As the years progressed, it seemed less and less likely that our heroes would ever find a way back from the savage Hyborian Age in which they were stranded by a damaged time platform. And although Steve Rogers never lost hope, nor was he idle. There were tyrants and evils aplenty to confront, and to that end Rogers, who became known as the Shield-Bearer, formed the Brotherhood of the Shield and recruited others to his cause (see Conan the Agent of Shield #1-4 (2015)). Together, they confronted malevolent cults and monsters spawned from dark Elder Gods.
And then, finally, a spark of hope. Steve meets Someone he knows. Odin Borson, though not yet the All-Father. Brash, bold and younger… with two in-tact eyes, though still wise and potentially knowledgeable about time travel. Can this impetuous wanderer and Prince of Asgard’s favor be won? Or will the minions of Chthon slay them both?
Meanwhile, in the current year, international tensions have escalated in areas beyond China and Madripoor. Aggressive moves from the middle eastern nation of Sharzhad have kept Israel’s super-soldier, Sabra, very concerned and even more busy. When she unexpectedly encounters Captain America, she’s shocked to discover it’s not her stalwart friend Steve anymore… and more shocked to find herself betrayed and being drained of life, trapped in the coils of Arkady Rossovich! Is there any escape?

But if she joins them, he promises her that there will be plenty of chaos and death, they will make the streets run red with blood. It doesn't take long for her to agree and to commemorate her new mission, he gives her a new name. She is no longer WARRIOR WOMAN. Instead, she is now...DISTURBIA! Next Issue: The Crazies!

“FOSTERING THE REBOOT”
Jenn Walters’ collapse last issue leads our cast (Reed, Hank, and Jenn’s therapist Dr. Leonard Samson) to give the attorney a complete mental and physical evaluation. Since Jenn’s original transformation into She Hulk was caused by an irradiated blood transfusion, the gamma radiation was well into her cell structure and trauma cause by the radiation’s invasion was minimal. She needed it to live and with the events of One More Day causing her body to lose that radiation, a piece of her was literally stolen. A second transfusion from Bruce Banner MIGHT work, unless Banner’s structure was changed by the event’s results as well. Of course, being able to find Bruce would help in that. What to do?
After his terror filled escapade months ago, Franklin Hall (Graviton) was imprisoned in a cell deep underground within a field acting to nullify his powers. He doesn’t plan escape, but instead has his sights set on a greater and, dare we say it, godlike, use of his powers. Can he create a new planet Earth? Those who dislike what’s being done to this one say, “maybe”. If only Reed or Hank (or even Nadia or Lunella) were able to find a scientific flaw in Hall’s plan.
The Rainbow Bridge is an organization meant to bring people of all faiths, all colors, and all sexualities together to foster a deeper understanding. Their president, Wyatt Wingfoot, has been spending considerable time with Johnny Storm in both professional and personal matters. Wingfoot’s family has been part of the Native American Keewazi tribe and he knows firsthand the problems and challenges of being displaced. Wyatt’s family has members who have made names for themselves in the American athletic world. Both Wyatt and Johnny have a firm grasp of what Q-ratings are and how best to use them.

“VENDETTA”
“You can get much further with a kind word and a gun then you can with a kind word alone” - Al Capone
Although Joe Fixit managed to escape the immediate heat from the g-men “Avengers,” his position within the Maggia is more dangerous than ever given that his “made man” status makes him a target. Following the defeat of a hit-squad sent by a rival Family, Joe overhears a drunken conversation at the Legitimate Businessmen’s Social Club… and he finally realizes who’s been lying to him and what “friend” sold him out to both the authorities and his maggioso enemies.
“I know it was you, Hammerhead. You smashed my heart!”
Now there’s a good-old fashioned vendetta. Joe Fixit versus Hammerhead and his boys. Let’s butt heads!
But perhaps Hammerhead’s most dangerous weapon is his knowledge that Joe smashed “Blackwing” Manfredi, son of the Don of the Manfredi Family, Silvio - the very man who, thanks to upgrades that Joe stole for him, is now a cyborg head sitting in a fully powered, epically-enhanced hulk-buster chassis with a photon laser canon! Can Joe stop Hammerhead from squealing to the full-metal mobster Don and bringing the wrath of the unstoppable Silvermane down upon him?

THE MIGHTY THOR #36
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“PANTHEON WAR” part three “THROW DOWN”
Long ago, the elder goddess Gaea begat Cronus, who begat Zeus. She later bore Odin a son, in a roundabout way rendering Thor Zeus’ uncle. There is little familial bond, however, as Thor and Zeus uneasily discuss an alliance against their mutual enemy: Chthon. Their negotiations are plagued by bitter memories…
The year 1616. Thor lost a wrestling match to Hercules. In his youthful, hot-headed rage, he pressed the attack after the contest was over and the bell had rung. This foul deed started a war.
The gods of the South marched on the gods of the North - with the Midgardian continent of Europe caught between an unstoppable force and an immovable object.
Thor versus Hercules II, this time for real. Loki versus Ares. Zeus versus Odin. These titanic battles and many more will shake the Realm. In the end, only one Pantheon could be left standing… but which one?
Meanwhile, in the current year, Balder continues his grim tour of Chthon’s Dark World Tree. He’d already visited the vampiric realm of Dhampiraj and seen the horrible flesh golems of Allograft. Now, he enters the feral realm of Varúlfur - the world of the wolfmen, where their deities lead nation-sized packs of werewolves. Most will obey Chthon’s orders not to assail Balder… but has one renegade pack caught his scent?

PETER PARKER, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #10
Written by J.M.DEMATTEIS
Plot by CaptCleghorn
Art by SARA PICHELLI
“CAN YOU SPEAK RHINOCEROS? OF COURSEROS! CAN’T YOU?”
Aleksei Sytsevich (Ah-lek-see set-seh-vich; Russian: Алексей Сицевич) was muscle for an unexceptional Russian bratva. He maintained a powerful focus and single-minded nature which added immensely to his dedication and loyalty. However, he wasn’t that smart and he took time to decide where to place that focus. As a result, he ended up in the United States doing basically what he did in Russian, but in English, which is a b***h language to learn.
Now it doesn’t take a genius to decide that if heroes had powers, villains might need them as well. To this end, we see Aleksei given powers and a functional grey costume after his genetic, physical, and psychological tests check off all the necessary boxes. He is the Rhino, an operative with super-strength, enhanced speed, and near invulnerability with a the suit resembling Rhino hide, but even tougher. While the organization bestowing this on Aleksei remains mysterious, we do discover who paid for it and who gets Aleksei’s new loyalty. Once again Wilson Fisk made things happen.
Dr. Margo (why the f wasn’t I in that movie?) Damian is well on her way to chaperoning a field trip expedition to Antarctica to seek remains and/or signs of Rognar’s people. For those of you wondering how HS kids end up on an Antarctic expedition, a superhero (or two) is accompanying the group for protection. Dr. Henry Pym, the Ant Man and founding member of F² along with his daughter Nadia, the Wasp, will be part of the trip. F²’s connection with VP candidate Susan Storm (seriously kids, read Agents of Fury) added considerable political pressure.
And Vermin is free. What does he want with Dr. Curt Conners?
