Dark Nights – Metal – Dark Knights Rising

Dark Nights – Metal – The Resistance

A major crossover event that has been in the works ever since "Court of the Owls" at the dawn of The New 52 and even connects back to post-Flashpoint event "Final Crisis", "Dark Nights – Metal" is a masterpiece story created by writer Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – Ends of the Earth, Flashpoint – Project Superman) and artist Greg Capullo (Haunt, Spawn).

These two have worked up the core six-issue limited series that have a number of related tie-in issues that comes in "The Road to Metal", "Dark Knights Rising" and "The Resistance" books to fill the necessary gaps to make things matter by a few other.

The Bat Behind The Bat

Writers James Tynion IV (Detective Comics – Rise of the Batmen, Detective Comics – The Victim Syndicate) and Tim Seeley (Batman – Night of the Monster Men, Nightwing – Better Than Batman) along with various other creators have contributed to the plot.

Artists Andy Kubert (Origin, Ultimate Iron Man), Ethan Van Sciver (The Flash – Rebirth, Green Lantern – Rebirth), Jim Lee (Batman – Hush, Superman – For Tomorrow), John Romita Jr. (Superman – Before Truth, Superman – The Men of Tomorrow) and Tyler Kirkham (The Darkness, Tomb Raider) have also take part in illustrating the arc for readers.

Ever since DC Rebirth, DC Comics has never done a crossover this big and it was actually a scheme to re-introduce many new characters and teams into play. References of classic sagas were mentioned and elements were used to build a new tomorrow. Some of the noteworthy appearances were made by Black Adam, Black Manta, Clayface, Deathstroke, Doctor Fate, Nightwing, Robin, Steel, Suicide Squad, Teen Titans and Vandal Savage.

A link to "Death of The Family" and "Endgame" arc was drawn to detailing the origin of Metal and how it is related to Batman. We are treated with an epic team-up during climax that was most unexpected and it even rivals the awesomeness of the World's Finest duo.

Squad members Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, El Diablo, Enchantress, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc and Killer Frost are all sent on a suicide mission without their leader Rick Flag to fight the death cult of Brimstone Brotherhood, led by Apex.

Apparently, they have stolen a Quake Pulsar device from S.T.A.R. Labs to destroy the island they are in as a ritual sacrifice. Deadshot makes the kill-shot on Apex before he does some serious damage but then the building he was standing on starts to tremble. Seeing running from this is pointless, Floyd Lawton willingly starts falling into his imminent death.

However, his life is unexpectedly saved by Superman's timely arrival and entire team of Justice League arrives with him to arrest Task Force X for taking them into custody.

A massive fight ensues where Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Superman and Wonder Woman overpowers them, until Killer Frost starts sucking the life-force from Superman and encases all League members in ice, successfully capturing them all.

At Belle Reve, all members of Justice League are kept as prisoners of Amanda Waller and Batman was the one among his friends to break out of his restrains before everyone else. He demands that Waller immediately released his friends and she does so before asking for their help to protect her life from Max's new accomplices.

They are the original Suicide Squad that she formed years ago and now all of them want revenge on her. Aside from that, there is a weapon in Belle Reve which will grant Max absolute power and control over the whole world and he is leading his team of misfits here to retrieve it.

Meanwhile, seeking revenge on director Amanda Waller, Max Lord eventually manages to convince Doctor Polaris, Emerald Empress, Johnny Sorrow, Lobo and Rustam to his goals so that they can chase their own with his help. He is about to unleash darkness upon the world and Lord goes looking for it in an island of South Pacific with his own team of Task Force X.

After killing all the Shamans who opposed them, Max confronts their High Priest to get his tool of revenge against Waller. He got his hands on a source of power he was looking for long but it proved to be too much for him to control and he succumbs to it.

Meanwhile, The Jackal arrives to release Spidey from his clutches as Octavius had him on ropes and offers a tour around along with Gwen. He took the wall-crawler to a room to show him that he has brought back every deceased member of his rogue's gallery who ever died on his watch and even rehabilitate them.

A 2017 crossover event, "Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy" is mostly centered on a five-issue Spider-Man limited series from Marvel Comics, written by Christos Gage (Civil War – House of M, Thunderbolts – Secret Invasion) and Dan Slott (Spider-Man – Big Time, Spider-Man – Dying Wish), while Jim Cheung (Avengers – The Children's Crusade, New Avengers – Illuminati) served as artist and Gabriele Dell'Otto (Annihilation – Nova, Annihilation – Ronan) provided cover arts. Although, the story at first seemed like a repetitive clash between Spider-Man and The Jackal, it unfolds as more.

The Jackal’s Master Plan

Parker Industries and New U Technologies being responsible for a dystopian future seemed like a fresh take on the series. Scarlet Spider and Spider-Gwen was also enjoyable because they both played their important part that helped the story advance further while Peter Parker did his part.

A huge gauntlet of fallen enemies of everyone's favorite wall-crawler including Big Man, Eduardo Lobo, Barton Hamilton's version of Green Goblin, Hitman, Hobgoblin, Jack O'Lantern, Kangaroo, Massacre, Mirage, Montana, Mysterio, Ox, Rose, Spencer Smythe, Spider-Slayer, Stilt-Man and Tarantula showed up.

Mysteries regarding The Living Brain and consciousness of Otto Octavius are finally cleared up by him. Also, the ambiguity around Miles Warren's identity came to a conclusion that even the most veteran fans probably haven't probably guessed.

A brand-new monthly ongoing Ben Reilly – Scarlet Spider series with its first storyline titled "Back In The Hood" by Peter David (Hulk – Destruction, The Other – Evolve or Die) and Mark Bagley (Hulk – Banner DOA, Venom – Lethal Protector) begins publication immediately after these events along with monthly Amazing Spider-Man series.

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.
