'INFINITIVE GAUNTLET' Part 12 'ALL I WANT'
•It's a beautiful Christmas morning at snowy Manse Harnkess. BOG BOY rips open the presents proud MAN-THING got him. The SCARLET WITCH introduces AARKUS the VISION to the customs of mistletoe while DOCTOR VOODOO and ELSA BLOODSTONE enjoy eggnog and each other in a cozy corner. DOCTOR STRANGE can't keep CLEA and AGATHA HARKNESS from arguing whether to have a traditional Earth Christmas lunch or a Faltine Yule feast.
•It's a perfect Christmas. That's why it's wrong.
•Bog Boy may be the equivalent of six years old but children soon tire of perfection, and after playing with all his toys, he sees through the glamour cast over the adults by the bad man in smelly robes reading from a creepy book.
•The imaginary fir and holly and ivy and mistletoe and poinsettia feel real even to those creating them, and Bog Boy's plant army is all that stands between Earth and mad mage ABDUL ALHAZRED opening a gateway to the darkness between the stars!

BLACK PANTHER: KING OF WAKANDA! #41
Written by MALCOLM JONES
Plot by MARVELL2100
Art by ADI GRANOV
T'Challa arrives in N'Gabo to meet his rival, President Marcus Zulu and his backer Moses Magnum with only Okoye at his side! This is a diplomatic meeting between the two nations to ease the rising tensions. N'Gabo has changed much since it's defeat at the hands of Wakanda, investing heavily into bio-technology. With the help of Magnum, another one of T'Challas' rivals on the Hellfire Clubs Inner Circle, Zulu has brought his country on the brink of becoming a global power and threatening the stability of the African continent.
But Zulu didn't invite T'Challa to give him a view of his improved military. He asked him to come to N'Gabo so that he can show him the heads of the leaders across the region and around the world who have come to do business with him and have signed new treaties. N'Gabo will become to Africa what Wakanda did not: A protector and a symbol of power! A leader who can unite the continent and bring prosperity after centuries of imperialism brought ruin to its' people!
T'Challa laughs and Zulu and Magnum! "You invite me here to boast about how great you are! You are both such little men!". Angrily, Zulu moves towards T'Challa only to stop dead in his tracks when Okoye steps forward. Magnum tells Zulu to calm down, there is no need for hostilities on such a beautiful day. They asked T'Challa to come so that Wakanda can be a part of the new Africa that they are building. T'Challa tells them that this "new" Africa looks a lot like the Africa that was under imperial rule and walks away.
Once aboard their ship, T'Challa asks Okoye if she got any readings. From what she can tell, there is a lot of material and tech that would be used for creating bio-weapons, something similar to what the Americans did in WWII. They are looking to create their own super-soldiers! There was something else that has her puzzled. There was another reading. Someone else was in the room using cloaking technology so that they would not be seen. The interesting thing is that the genetic readings are very similar to T'Challas'!

Prelude to World War Z!
“PERFORMANCE EVALUATION”
For the past two years, Arkady Rossovich has enjoyed establishment favor as the “official” Captain America (since CAPTAIN AMERICA #26!). They’ve covered up for his numerous misdeeds and ethical failings, while simultaneously smearing his rivals like Bucky Barnes as criminals. But now there’s a new boss in town…
Helmut Zemo has been elevated to U.S. Secretary of Defense (see NO MORE THUNDERBOLTS #1) and has finally gotten around to looking into the true identity of the so-called Sentinel of Equity. As it turns out, given his family history, Zemo isn’t a fan of the communist Soviet super soldier “Omega Red” - nor of his largely non-Aryan team of “Avengers.” Of course, the animosity is mutual. So when Arkady is called to the Pentagon, he’s prepared for a trap. But can anyone be prepared for Ares, the god of war?
Ares, another claimant to the mantle of Captain America, respects Zemo’s bold and aggressive approach to foreign policy. He’s entered an alliance with the new Defense Secretary based on the shared goal of revitalizing a United States that has grown fat, weak, and entitled. Step one: give the people a Captain America that they can respect - and take an axe to Omega Red!

“TOGETHER AGAIN … FOR THE FIRST TIME!”
It’s war between the dimensions. Or more accurately, war between realities with different numbers of dimensions. Reed Richards has cobbled together the secret of where the mass goes when the Pym family shrinks. Turns out that the excess is converted to dark matter which can’t be seen because it’s an eight-dimensional construct. Johnny and Wyatt have discovered that time is the one dimension which really doesn’t exist in anything but a complete 11 dimension realm (turn it up to 11, amirite?) and the TVA may just hold the secret to stopping this interdimensional conflict.
Using techniques developed by Jen Walters and Leonard Samson, the team assembles to find and rescue Hank Pym. Hank, as we’ve seen, has his own attack plan as well. But before the final battle is fought, the team faces the threat of Diablo the Demon from the Fifth Dimension.
The Dimension War continues.

Prelude to World War Z!
“TAKEN FROM ASGARD”
Overlooked. Ignored. Disrespected. For centuries, Amora the Enchantress believed herself to be both the most beautiful and mystically-gifted seductress in Asgard. Yet the Prince of the Realm, Thor, stubbornly and persistently refused her affections. Now Amora sees Thor’s widow, Sif, sitting upon Asgard’s throne as Queen and All-Mother… and it should have been her!
This is Amora’s opportunity to enact jealous revenge, for Sif is distracted by a pretender from Midgard and her misbegotten children, Magni and Modi Thorson, are left relatively unprotected on their third birthday (can you believe it’s been three years since their birth in THE MIGHTY THOR #13?). None question a visit from their grandfather Odin, the former All-Father turned wanderer. Little does anyone know, Odin has fallen under Amora’s mind-control spell! On Sleipnir, he spirits the boys of thunder away… and directly into Amora’s clutches!
Amora intends to present them to a real champion of Midgard: a man that is both self-made and of noble blood; a man who practices the proper respect for Teutonic Deities, who appreciates her gifts of mental subjugation, and who can teach Magni and Modi the true and oft forgotten ways of a Northman warrior. This man is Midgard’s undisputed master of evil…

“GOD-JEWEL” – Part One
FOREVER
In the beginning, there was Xorr.
Xorr was more than a planet, more than an empire.
Xorr was god.
Xorr’s dominion was as certain as the star it orbited.
But even stars die. Xorr would be eternal.
Forged in the fire of the supernova that birthed the Dark Nebula, the Black Galaxy – Xorr became something more.
Metaphor became literal, words given life.
Thus rose XORR THE GOD-JEWEL.
And Xorr would conquer. It divided its essence, birthing the BIO-GEMS, and with them as agents conquered the cosmos.
But then, call it a tragedy or a miracle, something remarkable happened. A lost, forgotten people called the Natter sacrificed themselves to shatter Xorr. The Bio-Gems slumbered.
The Universe forgot Xorr. But Xorr is not dead. And what is not dead can eternal lie.
Now, the Bio-Gems are awakening. And in a distant corner of the universe…

•The wreckage of Asteroid X has landed in a part of the Pacific Ocean so remote that the closest land is over two thousand kilometers away in any direction. This is where spaceships and launch debris go to die, and this is where the X-Men's lives begin anew. The PHOENIX FORCE is free of the undead body and twisted mind which corrupted it, and Asteroid X's safe splashdown is part of its gift.
•It took everything they had to defeat the VAMPHOENIX, and the X-Men are once again merely mutants. No Asgardian magic, no Cyttorak unstoppability, no psio-magnetic gestalts... At least the Phoenix restored JEAN GREY and PHENIX to their respective live bodies before it returned to the cosmos.
•With Asteroid X adrift but stable, the demon-mutant hybrid DEMUTANTS and animal-mutant hybrid XENTAURS decide to remain while the most of the surviving regular mutants just want to try and pick up the pieces of the lives they left behind to come to this supposed Utopia.
