As X-Men Kitty Pryde was looking for the headmaster of Jean Grey School, she found out that Logan is headed to Japan. In the midst of the flight, he is attacked by a bunch of Hand ninjas ready to take him down. But they really were no match for him as he is "The Best There Is". He makes a mess of the Ninjas on board and then reaches to Japan and meets Yukio, who updates him about the current situation there. Logan's adopted daughter Amiko is now in a relationship with Shingen Harada, the current Silver Samurai and son of Logan's long time foe; the original Silver Samurai. Logan wanders off Japan in search of these two and in the meantime, battles another old time nemesis; the Yakuza Clan.

Sabretooth is then seen very much alive with a bunch of representatives from The Yakuza who were talking business with him but soon ended up being mercilessly slaughtered by him. The enigmatic shape-changing mutant villain Mystique is also seen alive and is teamed up with her lover Sabretooth to get her revenge on Wolverine for killing her previously (Wolverine – Get Mystique) after she betrayed the X-Men (X-Men – Blinded by the Light). Amiko is kidnapped and held captive by The Hand and to save her, her boyfriend, the son of Silver Samurai reaches the spot. But what little chances he has to rescue her from The Hand all by himself? Wolverine finally met Sabretooth face to face and then these two feral mutants engage in a deadly duel to tear each other apart in Tokyo, Japan.

Hulk – Asunder | Comics

Separated from his alter ego Doctor Bruce Banner during the unpleasant skirmish of Fear Itself, the Hulk starts living into the depths of Subterranea now. On the surface world, he was always feared and he never really understood if he was a hero or a monster. Here, he fights the good fight with the dangerous creature and monster that come into his way. Free from Banner's persona, he is now Hulk forever and knows exactly what he is.

Hulk – Asunder | Comics

Down here, he lives with a moloid tribe who are celebrating the green goliath's presence among them. Even though the elder of the tribe assures Hulk an undisturbed stay in here, he is not quite convinced yet. The welcome party for Hulk is soon interrupted by the unexpected arrival of a secret government sponsored team with their robotic drones and drills to eliminate mad scientists, called the Mad Squad, led by Amanda Von Doom.

Amanda seeks out Hulk's assistance in their current mission and that is to stop the now unstable scientist Bruce Banner who has become a great problem for them. Bruce is restlessly trying to re-invent the Incredible Hulk, which he believes is one of his greatest achievements over the years, by experimenting on various creatures on the island laboratory and turning every type of animal into gamma-irradiated monsters, causing menace to the people around.

Amanda is on charge of the operation to take Banner down for good. Hulk shows no interest in her cause and turns her down. But later, when his newly found adoptive family of moloids is attacked by Banner's creatures; a bipedal gamma-irradiated warthog duo called 26 and 27, Hulk decides to help Amanda on one condition; to face Bruce Banner by himself and finish all of this madness for good.

A date with his wife Betty Ross goes sore when she finds out that Banner actually came to a deserted tropical island for his own research purpose. He started his work there which was a neuclear testing site from the 50's. When his continuous effort of bringing out the Hulk from within fails, Banner entertains the idea of creating the gamma-bomb that gave birth to the green goliath in the first place.

New Avengers – Search for the Sorcerer Supreme | Comics

Although Doctor Strange is back, a search for his new successor begins with The Hood seeking his powers.

Now that Tony Stark is not Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. anymore, New Avengers are on the run because Norman Osborn is in charge of everything. Aside from running a new task force H.A.M.M.E.R., he has assembled his own version of "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" with their twisted and villainous counterparts as Dark Avengers.

Some heroes went underground and many like Clint Barton AKA Ronin became vocal about their opinion on Osborn in public. When his team tries to choose a leader, Barton is elected and he picks Ms. Marvel as his second-in-command. They ask for Spider-Man to share his real identity with them and he reluctantly does so after all.

Turns out, Jessica Jones was a classmate of Peter from high school and had a crush on him, which irks her husband Luke Cage a little. Before they proceed to plan ahead to take Osborn down, Doctor Strange arrives there to seek help. He barely survived an encounter with The Hood, who is currently after his Eye of Agamotto.

It appears that Stephen Strange is no longer a Sorcerer Supreme of Earth dimension as he used dark arts to save his friends earlier. He has been looking for a new contender for his former title ever since and met Young Avengers member Wiccan in New Jersey but their conversation is interrupted midway when he sees Parker Robbins outside.

Strange told Billy Kaplan to run and attempts to face Hood alone but not only did he fail to reason with Robbins, he soon realized that his enemy has grown more powerful than he is now. Instead of running, Wiccan came out helping with his powers, allowing them both to escape from there and he came here to gather strength.

New Avengers insists on helping Strange as they were after Robbins, who has ties to Osborn. Meanwhile, Hood goes to Dormammu seeking help to ease his pain and meets Madame Masque. Not knowing what he's been up to, she suggests that they go look for Doctor Strange to get help and removes her mask before kissing him.

They all head to New Orleans trying to find the new rightful owner for Eye of Agamotto in a Quinjet that Carol "borrrowed" when she left Mighty Avengers. What Strange is mostly concerned about is that even people like Doctor Doom or Hood could be a candidate for being next Sorcerer Supreme and that would be disastrous.

On their way, the Eye suddenly activates by itself and starts display all of its possible holders before getting disappeared, most likely to its new owner. They are hit by a missile by Madame Masque, prompting Spidey and Wolverine to go after her. Logan ran into heavy fire and Spider-Woman engaged her until Captain America took her out.

In his apartment, Daimon Hellstrom was arguing with his ex-wife Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat over phone. The Hood comes at him guns blazing thinking he has what he is looking for but was unable to even land a scratch on him. They both get a glimpse of the Eye before it gets vanished again and Hood is cast outside from his house.

Their fight gets ugly pretty quickly and caught attention of The Avengers, who came in offering aid to Hellstrom. As Cage and Doc Strange try their best to contain the fiery fury of an unhinged Parker Robbins, who has taken a larger demonic form, Jericho Drumm AKA Brother Voodoo shows up wearing the Eye of Agamotto to help.

Even though Cage has been acting as a leader for some time, he steps down and Bucky Barnes simply didn't have old-school Avengers experience. In a not so surprising manner, Clint Barton gets elected as current leader of New Avengers.

The Hood, one of Osborn's allies and a herald of Dormammu becomes a major pain for heroes to deal with. Although he went after Strange to steal his Eye of Agamotto by force, Parker eventually ended up being badly burnt in hospital. A new Sorcerer Supreme is chosen and more bad news is heading for them in next story "Powerloss".
