Max Fury, the LMD clone of Nick Fury has finally come home after being stranded for months in the Negative Zone.

He stands, staring at the cold light of the moon over the skies of the sub-zero tundra of Antartica. He then turns to his companions, the Iron Maiden Toni Stark and The Coal Tiger whose face remains unseen as he never removes his mask. They are both natives of the Negative Zone born and raised in it's hellish environment. They look at this strange new world and think how can anyone live in an environment as foul as this. Walking towards an abandoned SHIELD station, Fury tells them it's time to go put their grand plan into motion and don't forget to bring along their most valuable possession, Brivanium!

RIGHTEOUS FURY
Antarctica: Max Fury, Iron Maiden, Coal Tiger and Deathlok make it to the abandoned SHIELD station where they get things running. Toni asks why Max chose to come to this facility and he tells her that this is where he was born...or rather, created.

He is the last of his kind, all of his brothers and sisters destroyed or deactivated. Now with the valuable mineral Brivanium and the super genius of The Coal Tiger and Toni he intends not only revive the remaining LMDs but create new ones as well, far better than what SHIELD has ever made!
On the opposite pole in the Arctic Circle, another portal opens and a lone figure falls through barely surviving the transition to this strange world. She gathers herself and looks at the harsh, frozen terrain as swirling winds and snow form white out conditions. She tells herself, that she has to survive to hunt down Fury and his crew. So she picks herself up and begins to walk to where, she doesn't know. But if this world is to survive what was done to hers, she has to stop Fury no matter what!

“THE QUIET WAR”
The LMDs have been remade, far better, more human than they ever were before. The artificial skin developed by Toni Stark looks and feels real. Their brains masked and enhanced by electromagnetic fields that resemble organic brain functions. Each of them has been programmed with their assignments and are ready to be sent out into the world. Max Fury looks on as Coal Tiger adds the final element into the LMD's artificial intelligence, the Brivanium that they brought along with them. With it, even a psychic couldn't tell that they are not human. The LMDs will replace key players in every country around the world until all governments and businesses are infiltrated, even these so-called superheroes. Max thinks to himself, they will all pay for killing his brothers and sisters, especially Nick Fury. He was the one that ordered the genocide of all LMDs and he's going to pay dearly for that. The Quiet War has begun!
In the Artic, a long figure has travelled as far as she could but the elements are too much. As she falls in the snow, she thinks back to what happened and how she failed to stop it. Before she blacks out, she swears that she can feel someone picking her up and carrying her. But that must be her mind playing tricks on her before she dies.

“THE QUIET WAR” Part II
Thousands of LMDs have been sent out into the world to infiltrate all levels of society from business and entertainment to government and military installations. Max Fury, Coal Tiger and Iron Maiden are the only ones who can detect them using Brivanium. Now that their plan has been set in motion, it's time for them to fade into the background and let the LMDs do their work. They will meet again once the first stage is complete.
In the Arctic, Ahsana awakes with a rush to the same nightmare that's been haunting her for a long time. She looks around the room to get her bearing but finds very little of use. The door opens and enters someone bringing food. He tells her that his name is N'Do Xander(pronounced- Endo Zander) and he has been here for almost a year but she does not respond. He laughs and tells her that he doesn't know who she is but he knows what she is. Although it is a slightly different uniform from what he's seen, make no mistake she is a Dora Milaje. She looks in his hand to see her weapon, The Spear of Nehanda, like herself the last remnants of Wakanda. N'Do tells her not to worry as he collapses the spear and tosses it to her.
He says that he too is just a traveler, in search of those responsible for killing someone close to him. Perhaps they can help each other with their problems. Help him kill the man who killed his father and he will help her find those she seeks. Ahsana doesn't know if she can trust N'Do but does she really have a choice? She asks him how does he knows so much about Wakanda and he tells her that he should know, after all his father was M'Baku, King of Wakanda!

BARONESS BLOOD has inherited his name, his home and wealth but it all means nothing. Every attempt to make her mark upon the world has ended in failure, even her alliance with the dread-lord Dracula ended in disappointment.

She holds the stake in her hand, staring at it, ready to plunge it into her heart. But before she can take her own life, she hears footsteps walking down the long dark hall coming closer. She tenses herself, ready to face whatever walks thru the door. She's surprised to see a well dressed, middle-aged man enter the room. She moves with lightning speed, ready to deliver a killing strike! But with a single wave of his hand, he freezes her in her in mid-air.
He talks to her in a calm, soothing voice telling her that he is not here to fight. He releases his hold and tells her that he wants her to fulfill her destiny, to help him usher in a new age. LILI laughs and tells him that he is no different than the others who have approached her before with grand visions of world domination. He looks at her and smiles and tells her that he has no interest in ruling this Earth or any other. No, he has a much simpler goal in mind.

“SOMETHING EVIL THIS WAY COMES.” CONCLUSION!
In whispered circles, some say he is the original sinner, committing the most heinous act of all: murder! He's lived a long life and gone by many names. He was always the power behind the power. When kings, fascists, emperors and presidents went to war, it was his words that were whispered in their ear. When hatred was born only because of skin color, religion, gender or sexual preference or identity, he was there to light the flame. However, lately he has felt as old as the millennia that he has lived. Power has long abandoned him and he has become a forgotten relic who cannot even command the lowliest creature. All that is left is for him to lie down and die.
But recently, a new sensation, a new power filled his body and given him new purpose(Negation)! He feels strong, stronger than he's ever felt before and with new power comes new plans, new ideas! But he understands that he cannot do it alone. He has recruited an entirely new family who have the means and the will to carry out his vision. BARONESS BLOOD! CARRION! DISTURBIA! MAD MAX! THE CRYING MAN! They are his family now, his future, the ones who will become his legacy. They are...THE RED DEATH! It will take planning and patience. But JOHN APOSTLE has been a patient man for a very long time, ever since he murdered his only brother oh so long ago! Next Issue: New Arc! And Hellfire Is Their Name!
