Venom – Rex | Comics

Lethal Protector Venom and his human host Eddie Brock faces threat of a primeval evil but Miles Morales, Spider-Man stands in their way!

Eddie Brock is being haunted by recurring nightmares, visions of a past that he doesn't know off but somehow he realizes that it has something to do with his other. He sees a band of Norse warriors desperately tries to fight against a demonic force that comes to them in form of black tendrils and devours them all bursting through the doors.

He wakes up in the middle of the night in shock to find his Venom symbiote trying to hide in a corner. Turns out it was his other who had the nightmare and he then takes a handful of anti-psychosis pills to shut them down so he can think for a moment. With the pills starting to take effect, it gets furious and threatens Eddie to kill him in his sleep.

He never saw it react so violently, which is making him worried and then hearing to a police scanner, they quickly heads out to pursue a case on Jack O'Lantern that he has been working for months. However, rather than jumping in and break some bones, Brock just takes pictures that he can sell but the villain tries to escape by shooting a cop.

The symbiote takes over and ambushes to a fleeing Jack and the guy behind the pumpkin helmet is scared to death to see him. As it starts to gouge his eyes, cops come shooting from behind and the suit responds by turning into the monster from Eddie's nightmare, sporting a crimson spiral on forehead speaking an ancient alien language.

The suit loses control and attempts to attack the policemen but hit by an explosive bullet. Even though the shooter came looking for Flash Thompson, he takes Eddie and leaves. Gaining his senses back, Eddie realizes he is restrained in a dark room with a blast furnace in it and his captor knows well enough how to keep a symbiote at bay.

Venom – Rex | Comics

The man named Rex Strickland asks him if he knows anything about Project Rebirth 2.0 but Eddie only knows that the original program has created Captain America and a few years ago, the government restarted it to weaponize the Venom symbiote.

He believes that they wanted to create a new supersoldier program but Rex corrects him saying he is not the first but the latest. During Vietnam War, Strickland and his comrades were part of a Sym-Soldier Program. He got out and become an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. but his friends were permanently bonded and now he needs help to rescue them.

After the collapse of S.H.I.E.L.D., those four are being transported to be executed and to get some answers, Brock goes to rescue them. Ramming down one of the trucks, Venom sees four of them coming out with red spirals on forehead, speaking that same alien language and impales him when he lunges at them as his other leaves him.

Though it came back soon to heal him back and they both see their symbiotes leave while the hosts turn into corpses. His suit translates the ancient alien language to him as "God is coming" and then a massive dragon-like being is awaken from the ground. Seeing the creature go on a city-wide rampage after that, Eddie quickly rushes to the spot.

What he never expected was Spider-Man, Miles Morales sneaking up on him and Venom goes berserk on him by turning as one of those monsters from his dreams. Eddie somehow breaks through and Miles unloads a "Venom Blast" to free him from the corruption. The boy lost his parents to a symbiote and Brock assures him that it was not him.

Seeing the oncoming threat approaching to the city, they prepare for the final battle and Eddie plans on using Miles' Venom Blasts on the dragon. Their plan worked and the dragon falls. From inside it, a pale figure comes out grabbing the head of an unconscious Spidey and Venom goes full berserk on him when he crushes a patrol helicopter.

However, the entity blasts the symbiote off him and took it with him after introducing himself to Eddie Brock as Knull, God of the Symbiotes. He shows Brock the events of how he existed from before the beginning of universe, forged the first symbiote to slay a Celestial, before being cast away and coming back as a God to take away his suit.

Venom – Rex

Considering both writer Donny Cates (Doctor Strange – Damnation, Thanos – Thanos Wins) and artist Ryan Stegman (Inhuman – Genesis, Uncanny Avengers – Lost Future) are two of the hottest comic-book creators right now, Marvel Comics have picked them up for a Venom storyline like never before and they came up with "Rex" in 2018.

Collecting the first six issues from the fourth ongoing volume of Venom monthly series, "Rex" chronicles the history of Klyntar symbiote that started 1000 years ago out of the darkness of cosmos, its encounter with The Mighty Thor during Viking Age (Thor – God of Thunder) and introduces a powerful ancient God-like entity, Knull, Lord of the Abyss.

Ancient Symbiote God

With The Avengers busy dealing with dead Celestials falling from sky (The Final Host) and the X-Men is nowhere to be found, Venom teams-up with Spider-Man, Miles Morales to face-off against a dragon-like symbiote collective called Grendel. Eddie has fought cancer, Carnage, Toxin and Anti-Venom but never faced anything like these new foes.

After facing Knull, the wicked web-slinger got some new power upgrades that'd come in handy in future. Also, involvement of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a Sym-Soldier Program from long ago is revealed. The plot twist at the end was somewhat unpredictable and seemingly leaves Eddie Brock without a purpose but he will be back in the upcoming arc.

Justice League – The Totality | Comics

Martian Manhunter tries to protect the Justice League from an incoming threat that may shatter the world.

In space, a mysterious object passes through space and time, which members of the Justice Legion, multiversal race of Monitors, Kamandi and even the group of all powerful beings called the Quintessence notices and all they could do is to helplessly watch this threat heading towards Earth without being able to stop it before it reaches impact.

Back in Earth, the Justice League members are fighting different tribes of Neanderthals around the globe while telepathically reporting back to Martian Manhunter. They came up with the theory that someone pushed them toward evolution, which is making them trying to claim over Earth and it could be none other than their old enemy Vandal Savage.

As he hold together the minds of his allies, the Martian witness the surface of Earth suddenly breaking apart. J'onn J'onzz pieces together everything from their minds and suggests they would have to destroy the moon. He asks Batman to activate the bombs he planted there long ago and makes an impact taking shape of a giant dragon-like creature.

As the threat is reverted, Superman informs that Swamp Thing is rebinding Earth and J'onn gets a flashback of his life back on Mars where everyone was burnt to death, including his own daughter K'hym in front of him. He tells Bruce that the crisis is far from over and connects rest of the League members into a psychic boardroom meeting.

He sensed something bigger than Savage's plan and discovered the mysterious object, "The Totality" approaching here holding all the energy of the bleeding Source Wall and they are only minutes away from impact. Hawkgirl asks if the Omega Titans are involved but Bruce connects it to a myth of New Genesis from the scan Cyborg ran on it earlier.

Justice League – The Totality | Comics

As everyone is arguing over their current course of action over the matter, Batman suggests a possible contingency in form of Green Lantern John Stewart, who he stationed and awaiting order to fire a miniaturized omniversal wormhole bullet made of Tenth Metal, ready to transport the Totality out of Source Wall and destroy it.

From their secret hideout, the Neanderthal followers of Vandal Savage question his agenda but he claims everything is going according to plan. Lex Luthor arrives out of shadows claiming his plan will fail and as Savage tries to attack him, the former stuns him. His followers pledges alliance to Lex to join his Injustice Gang but he kills them anyway.

He then moves to Savage, mocking him for being coward to never facing the truth and presents his own Legion of Doom consisting of Black Manta, Cheetah, Gorilla Grodd, The Joker and Sinestro. Luthor shows him a doorknob-like object of power and repeatedly smashed him to a bloody pulp, which sent J'onn a psychic flash of upcoming events.

The team was having a disagreement over what to do next, Wonder Woman asks J'onn to call his vote as the chairman of the League and before he could do so, he was interrupted by the telepathic spark that he lost connection to everyone and The Totality hits Earth. He also sensed someone else who knew about the impending doom.

It landed in the Nevada Desert with all the power of Source Wall, shaped as a giant head and created a protective shell around it. Though the Justice League Dark has covered it in a mystic veil to avoid public detection, word about it is getting out and Suicide Squad member Killer Croc has already been possessed by it, whom the League is fighting.

Through Swamp Thing, The Dark Knight approaches John Stewart to join Justice League right away to help them tackling the threat of The Totality. Apparently, Croc has turned into a giant monster and giving a tough time to the heroes. They couldn't get a response from John and decides to investigate the mysterious energy immediately.

Stewart was transporting a prisoner to Green Lantern Corps in space when Sinestro showed up in a new emotional spectrum, transforming him into Ultraviolet Lantern. He then smashed into the Hall of Justice attacking Aquaman, Flash and Wonder Woman. He creates constructs powerful enough to beat them but Cyborg managed to knock him off.

Meanwhile, Superman and Manhunter enter the sphere with Batman and Hawkgirl within their bodies using tech from The Atom. What they don't know is that both Luthor and Joker also sneaked their way inside. Arthur, Barry and Diana find out the Hall of Doom underwater and are attacked by a group of primitive White Martians kept into stasis.

Apparently, Lex Luthor gotten his hands on an object called Doom and with it, he promises each of the villains in his Legion what they wants and they joined his cause gladly. Now that he has gained control over the body of the Man of Steel, only the Caped Crusader is left to stand on his way to stop him but even he may not be equipped enough to do that.

As a sharpshooting mercenary Domino always made her own luck but what happens when her powers finally betrays her?

After hanging out with Mercs for Money and then tangling up with X-Force for a while to chase Weapon H, Neena Thurman decides to be soldier of fortune once again. As Domino, she forms a new mercenary group called The Posse with fellow merc Rachel Leighton AKA Diamondback and Inez Temple AKA Outlaw to get back to her old business.

It's Neena's birthday and they took a job to look into the Rural Route D72, where loggers involved in timber piracy are going missing. Inez and Neena go there to face off a gang of Russians and it turns out to be a trap for them. The latter came under heavy fire but the former came to rescue her and deliver a "Fastball Special".

The bait who turned into a creature is a mutant named Adelbert Greywing that they apprehend and their third accomplice Diamondback (not to be confused with Willis Stryker) arrives. Neena decides to let Adelbert tag along with them, probably because of birthday blues but Rachel strongly suggests against her habit of picking up strays.

Back at her apartment, Neena is surprised to see her new besties threw her a party by calling in Agent X, Amadeus Cho, Deadpool, ex-boyfriend club consisting Cable, Colossus and Warpath, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, her friends Kitty Pryde, Pixie and Storm from X-Men, fellow merc Taskmaster and even got The Dazzler to sing at her party.

In the middle of the performance, she suddenly starts having grim flashbacks of her past and then Rachel presents her a pug as a gift, which she names Pip. Outside, Alex and Wade inform Rachel of a bounty on her head placed by Topaz. In her room, an elderly fellow with a walker comes in with his caregiver to wish on her birthday.

The nurse turns out to be the one called Topaz, whom DP was referring to and she viciously unloads her on Domino. While she desperately seeks help from her "Good Luck" power, her attacker thrashed her and then threw her out of the window. As she ran out of luck, Neena thinks of hitting the pavement and nothing to hold on to.

Topaz apparently turned off her mutant power but then her employer tells her to give Neena her juice back and suddenly Spider-Man comes swinging to save her. At the same time, those two are apprehended by Deadpool, Diamondback and Outlaw for breaking in. However, the elderly suddenly got younger and teleported out with his nurse.

Inez and Rachel go to fetch her while Wade stays back to make sure she is okay. Next morning, she meets Amadeus Cho to talk about a way to prevent anyone from switching her power off and sees that she still got it by taking out a group of thugs in park.

The Posse heads to stop a robbery on a riverboat as their next job with Cho hanging out with them. Though it was an inside job from her employer, she took care of the gig and then the freaky couple of her newfound enemies arrive once again. The elderly is much younger now due to her suffering restores years to his life.

While she thought they came here to kill her for that, they blew up the boat they came in to kill her friends and add more sufferings to her life. After being stranded between dream and memories for a while, she gives the attackers a chase. This time Topaz gets a beating before she could even react but still teleported out with her partner.

All of her friends are revealed to be alive because Diamondback sensed that their boat was rigged. Earlier Neena asked Cho for help and he suggests that she train her powers. To start with, he even recommends her taking a twelve hour flight to go to Hong Kong and meet Master of Kung Fu; Shang-Chi to hone her power under his tutelage.

Back home, Inez and Rachel calls in Wade Wilson to get more info on Topaz so they can take her out for their friend. Meanwhile, more flashbacks from her past on Project Armageddon come to haunt her as she readies her at Shang-Chi's dojo.

In Gotham, Artemis Grace enjoys a drink with Jason before she suggests that they go somewhere more private and are soon in the Batcave.

He fails to explain why he kept it a secret and admits he needs help.

She talks him out of his addiction toward the fluid and he drains all the supply he had but he was also regressing slowly. So, Artemis Grace takes it on herself to go and meet his maker about giving him an extended life. Given that he already saved him twice, Lex simply declines to help despite their shared distant past history.

Meanwhile, Jason was on Iceberg Lounge under disguise for some Gotham hold 'em and to annoy Oswald Cobblepot as well.

Jason confides in Alfred Pennyworth about his recent endeavors while wondering whether what he is doing is right. Then the granddaughter of Ma Gunn shows up to hand him an envelope containing letters from his deceased father. One of them reveals that Penguin was the one who got him arrested by setting him up.

The backward Superman's mental condition worsens and their secret headquarters floating over Gotham City initiates a self-destruction protocol that Artemis couldn't seem to break into anyhow. Red Hood's vendetta against Penguin for messing up his life will lead him to a path to face an angry and betrayed Batman.
