Avengers – The Final Host | Comics

Robbie Reyes is home with his brother Gabe and hasn't been feeling good lately as he is still trying to figure out his Ghost Rider persona. After her last encounter with The Leader, Jennifer Walters is trying her best not to turn into She-Hulk again when a pervert kept annoying her when she was walking alone on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

A huge warp-hole appears near the low-orbit space station of Alpha Flight and Captain Marvel sees a Celestial hand coming out that causes her to sound every global alarm. Steve, Thor and Tony head towards the site and see something huge fall off the sky.

A journey to the center of the Earth takes Black Panther and Doctor Strange to a place full of egg-like object lying dormant. Meanwhile, Robbie was recalling his encounter with Starbrand when suddenly; he sees a swarm of bug-like creatures coming out of ground and turns into Ghost Rider. Strange and T'Challa faces the same horde at the same time.

What came out of the warp-hole and dropped into Hudson River is a fallen Celestial and The Avengers sees Col. Carol Danvers standing beside it. Tony asks her if she had killed it but she says it was already dead when it came and there are at least hundreds more coming. Cap shouts their iconic battle-cry seeing another group of Celestials coming.

Captain America, Iron Man and Thor charges at this group of The Final Host with everything they have. Jen Walters finds herself near the dead Space God but is immediately attacked by a swarm that caused her to turn into She-Hulk and squish the bugs. She and Robbie Reyes bumped into each other and invoke a fight before getting busy with the bugs.

Captain Marvel plans to hurl The Final Host into sun using her omega-level warp grenades and Cap even pulls off a desperate stunt to eradicate this threat but them all are suddenly restrained by the God of Mischief, Loki. He has allied himself with the dark Celestials and after kidnapping Cap, he left The Avengers dealing with the locust horde.

Avengers – The Final Host

To begin with a freah-start, Marvel Comics hired comic-book writer Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Thanos Rising) in 2018 to set a grand plot which will expand to the past, present and future of The Avengers, which takes place on the eighth ongoing volume of the series from issues #01-06. The arc goes back and forth to connect lose knots to bigger secrets.

He was assisted by artists Ed McGuinness (Avengers – X-Sanction, Superman – Emperor Joker), Paco Medina (New X-Men – Mercury Falling, New X-Men – Nimrod) and Sara Pichelli (Spider-Men, Spider-Men II). McGuinness also provided cover arts for issues involved and David Marquez (Defenders – Kingpins of New York, Defenders – Diamonds Are Forever) worked on a few variants.

Still After Avengers

Although the Dark Celestials were never a Thanos-level threat to begin with, the heroes were still challenged like never before and the next arc promises to be more action-packed. Odin and his Stone Age Avengers have much starting secrets for the heroes to know. Despite The Eternals all perishing during the story, Marvel will probably revive them in future.

Tony slipping into coma after fighting with Carol Danvers during Civil War II, Cap turning into an agent of Hydra from Secret Empire and events of The Unworthy Thor were all referenced as a callback to all three of them to come together once again. "Jen Walters Must Die" storyline from She-Hulk monthly series hinted to her issues as well.

Civil War II | Comics

Because of Black Bolt detonating a Terrigen Bomb during the time Thanos came to invade New Attilan looking for his son (Infinity), a new generation of Inhumans called NuHumans is introduced to the world. Among them was Ulysses Cain, a NuHuman with near-accurate precognitive abilities, who prophesied of an upcoming dystopian future. This came in handy when The Avengers successfully stopped an invasion of a Celestial Destructor in Earth, with help from A-Force, Inhumans, The Ultimates and X-Men.

Doctor Strange and the combined effort of the magic wielders were able to send the Celestial back to its own dimension. As the heroes learned about Ulysses at the celebratory party of their victory, Captain Marvel wanted to recruit him to The Ultimates, whereas Iron Man argues over the logic of trying to stop something before it even takes place. However, in an attempt to apprehend Thanos according to Ulysses' visions, Carol Danvers and her team ambushed The Mad Titan, resulting in the death of War Machine and She-Hulk ended up in coma.

An infuriated Tony Stark then kidnaps Ulysses from New Attilan to further study the true nature of his powers, leading Tony into conflict with Medusa, Crystal and Karnak of The Inhumans. When Black Panther deduced that Karnak is about to destroy the Stark Tower in retaliation, the combined force of The Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Ultimates rushed to the spot to stop him. As Tony runs tests on him, Ulysses projected another vision regarding The Hulk, as he will go into a rampage and kill The Avengers.

Carol approaches a de-powered Bruce Banner in his secret base to come out and cooperate but Hawkeye shoots him dead with an arrow after Beast confirms of Banner is experimenting to regain his powers. Tony show to Captain America, Captain Marvel and Medusa that Ulysses' visions are actually probabilities of possible future, not absolute truth and he revealed it to the world. Carol still refuses to stop using Ulysses' visions to stop possible world-ending threats.

However, things got a bit escalated when she arrested a citizen named Alison Green, believed to be an agent of Hydra based on a prediction Ulysses made but was unable to prove her of any guilt. When Tony got her out of custody, Carol attempts to arrest Tony Stark and he brought over the team of All-New X-Men and The Avengers to confront her. Then Alpha Flight and Guardians of the Galaxy joins Carol against Tony and then Ulysses has a vision of Miles Morales killing Steve Rogers.

Black Panther – A Nation Under Our Feet | Comics

Things are not like they once were for King T'Challa of Wakanda as his nation has been ravaged by Atlantean Prince Namor during Avengers/X-Men War, there was an invasion of The Black Order which caused a huge loss of life (Infinity) and then Incursion of Worlds happened, which almost saw end of everything (Secret Wars). As his own people cast him out for his failure, his loyal Dora Milaje had left him too. T'Challa's sister Shuri took his place momentarily but after her fight with Cabal, she was stuck in a coma-like stasis.

This state of hers forced T'Challa to become King of Wakanda once again and he returned as Black Panther as well. At the Great Mound, he goes to respond to a situation regarding workers and tries to inspire Vibranium miners working there but he sees hate in their eyes as someone was manipulated them from within. Seeing the person responsible for this chaos, he gives chase but she vanishes after turning the crowd against their King. Seemed overwhelmed at first, T'Challa deals with them and by then her scent gone stale.

On the Golden City of Wakanda, Aneka, former captain of Dora Milaje is given a death sentence by Queen Mother for killing a chieftain for his lechery on helpless females of his village to which her lover Ayo tries to defend her by trying to justify Aneka's actions by explaining that situation. She even showed footage of that event to appeal for sparing her life as she did what was demanded by honor. However, the Queen Mother remains adamant in her decision stating it is her duty to make the tough but right decisions here.

T'Challa returns home and shares concern about his recent encounter with a soul-stalker to Queen Ramonda. When discussed about the incident that took place at Great Mound with council of tribal of elders, T'Challa is informed about his deceiver's identity. It is revealed that she is an enhanced named Zenzi, who was once a captive of Killmonger, who barely escaped by turning her captors against each other. T'Challa senses a deep conspiracy of some superhuman terrorist group trying to cause a violent uprising among his people.

Zenzi is currently working with Tetu; leader of a new Wakandan rebel movement called The People and a shaman with powers to manipulate forces of nature around him. Tracking her down on Nigandan Border Region, Black Panther reaches to confront her after trashing many of Nigandan Army soldiers. While he goes to confront her, T'Challa was overwhelmed by the images of Shuri cast by Zenzi that keep haunting him for failing to save his sister. He was finally able to overcome the effects but the deceiver was gone.

Meanwhile, Aneka is rescued by her lover Ayo in the Midnight Angels suit from her cells and together, they start vigilance on every oppressor who abuses helpless women. They start by rescuing a group of hostage women from a compound in Northern Wakanda by killing all bandits. When Aneka and Ayo was away, White Gorilla Army and ravaged whatever left there. In retaliation, Aneka lured out their leader Lord Mandla AKA Man-Ape to a distant cave where the Midnight Angels were waiting for him and killed him.

Despite all of his best efforts, T'Challa fails to bring back his sister from her "living death" state. Inside her construct of amber, Shuri's soul eventually transcended to a plane called The Djalia, where she was guided by an apparent spirit of Ramonda. Tetu's rebellion of The People plans a suicide bombing with help from Ezekiel Stane, which injured Queen Ramonda. To tackle these overwhelming threats from the inside of his nation and beyond, Black Panther summons help from his friends at The Crew, consisting Luke Cage, Manifold, Misty Knight and Storm.

In past, the sacred land of Wakanda has been attacked by Latverian tyrant Doctor Doom (Doomwar), a Devourer of Totems; Morlun (The Deadliest of The Species) and even The Mad Titan; Thanos but it always stood up at its majestic feet and now Marvel Comics picks National Book Award winning writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and sensational artist Brian Stelfreeze to re-invent Black Panther in all his Wakandan glory for an all-new age of readers. The storyline "A Nation Under Our Feet", contains issues #01-12 from sixth monthly ongoing volume of Black Panther and divided into three separate books.

Sword For Lions

The King of Wakanda faces trouble not from the outside world but from within his own nation, while he also struggles with her sister being trapped in a state between the living and the dead. For long, he has already been in conflict with his inner self about the actions he took during "Time Runs Out" with his allies in The Illuminati. Needles to say that "A Nation Under Our Feet" story arc is primarily focused with the thought of introducing new readers of the series to prepare themselves for 2018's Black Panther movie from Marvel Cinematic Universe and create an appeal to them for this character.
