In the aftermath from destructive World War Hulk event occurred previously, a new chapter on Hulk's life has begun as Bruce Banner is now taken to custody and locked into Gamma Base. As some unusual activities are detected on the Canadian wilderness recently, a mysterious figure is detected approaching pretty fast and is attacked by Wendigo, who is viciously killed in battle and a major seismic activity is then detected on ground. What follows next is that, one of Hulk's strongest and most deadly arch-nemesis for years; The Abomination is mysteriously killed.

Everyone is shocked at the brutality of this murder after finding Emil Blonsky's deceased corpse in a village near Russia. Banner's close friend Doc Samson and cousin She-Hulk are sent to investigate the situation along with Maria Hill, General Ross and Iron Man; the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. There, they faced Russian superhero team Winter Guard on scene during their investigation. Both parties argued and in the heat of the situation, Samson hits Red Guardian, which prompts an instant hostility between She-Hulk and Ursa Major.

Seeing everyone else fighting each other, Crimson Dynamo feels cocky and starts shooting at Iron Man but Tony knocked him down with a repulsor blast. Fight escalates and argument arises while Ross decides to be a voice of reason. They apparently found a little girl who survived among the few other villagers and only said a word which means "Red". Ross and Samson head back to Gamma Base finding no other possible explanation for these bizarre happenings, to get an expert opinion from none other than Bruce Banner.

Meanwhile, Banner's long-time ally Rick Jones suddenly wakes up and finds himself on the Alaskan Frontier without a memory of what happened with him. Then the new Helicarrier of S.H.I.E.L.D. is suddenly attacked and destroyed by some unforeseen force, while all classified files on Hulk are also erased by a virus. It grabbed She-Hulk before she could even move and then easily knocked her out cold. This mysterious entity is revealed itself to be a Hulk but only in "Red" and he is headed straight to Gamma Base. Looking for Banner, Rick Jones arrives at Gamma Base only to be confronted by Red-Hulk.

Rick then transforms into a Hulk-like creature as well but his appearance is more resembled to Abomination, calling himself A-Bomb. A clash between him and Red Hulk shook the place to its core and caused Bruce Banner to turn into Hulk as his containment unit tries to force sleep by using gas. Finally, actual green Hulk decides to face "Red" and it's time for some major collateral damage on the face of Earth. Even Uatu the Watcher showed up to witness this fight and got punched on his face by the Red Menace. Also, The Mighty Thor returns to Midgard for stopping the rampage of both Hulks.

Ultimates 3 – Who Killed The Scarlet Witch? (Softcover)

Ultimates 3 – Who Killed The Scarlet Witch? (Hardcover)

Ultimates 3 is a five issue limited series monthly comic-book published by Marvel Comics in 2009. The story is plotted by writer Jeph Loeb (Daredevil – Yellow, Hulk – Gray) and illustrated by the extraordinarily talented artist Joe Madureira (Astonishing X-Men, Uncanny X-Men). When first released, it was named "Sex, Lies, and DVD" but that sounded too corny even for a graphic novel and so it was later changed into "Who Killed The Scarlet Witch?" to be more appropriate. Some critics loved it and some criticized it for not having any serious depth of story from an Eisner winner nominee.

There is a trip to Savage Land, where we meet Ka-Zar and Shanna along with a few other recurring characters from Ultimate Marvel Universe. Some grim foreshadowing of the upcoming "Ultimatum" event was there considering the entire setup for this story seems a lot darker than usual Ultimate Universe books in general. The writing have some serious downsides that people hated but it can still be overlooked in exchange for some fantabulous artwork from the one and only artist Joe Mad. Joe's amazing art style took The Ultimates to a higher level and gave us a whole new point of view to look at it!

Fallen Son – The Death of Captain America | Comics

Seeing the violent consequences around him in opposing the Superhuman Registration Act, Captain America ended the "Civil War" event single handedly and afterwards is shot by the villain Crossbones while taken away into custody. Like many others, Cap’s long time war-buddy and an X-Man; Wolverine refuses to believe that Cap is no more.

Fallen Son – The Death of Captain America | Comics

So, along with Daredevil, he went on to the S.H.I.L.E.D. custody with help from Doctor Strange and the Winter Soldier, to see if Steve Rogers is really dead or if there is a body. Ms. Marvel, Ares, Wasp, Wonder Man, Black Widow and The Sentry of the Mighty Avengers are called by Iron Man to inform about Logan’s infiltrating to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.

To lessen his guilt over Rogers's unexpected death, Tony Stark offers a newly resurfaced Clint Burton to take Captain America's place to represent the hero to American people, as he is one of the few people who can effectively handle Captain America's shield but Burton, seeing the real picture behind the cause, refuses to do so and left Tony alone, who assisted him as Iron Man to apprehend two of the unregistered Young Avengers member.

Spider-Man also mourns at the grave of his beloved Uncle Ben about all the people he has lost over years including his best friend Harry Osborn, Captain Stacy and the love of his life; Gwen Stacy and now he'll have to deal with Cap's death too. Spidey got engaged with Rhino as a result of a silly misunderstanding and he stands tall against his opponent as he once saw Cap standing against The Incredible Hulk in the past.

Superman/Batman Vol 04 – With a Vengeance (Softcover)

Superman/Batman Vol 04 – With a Vengeance (Hardcover)

Collecting issue #20-25, "With a Vengeance" is the fourth storyline from the first volume of Superman/Batman monthly ongoing series by DC Comics in 2006, by writer Jeph Loeb (Batman – Dark Victory, Batman – The Long Halloween) and artist Ed McGuinness (Superman/Batman – Public Enemies, Thundercats – Reclaiming Thundera). This duo previously worked on the "Public Enemies" storyline of the series and their remarkable work also led the story to be the plot of great importance. A hint about the oncoming “Infinite Crisis” is also given in the final part of the storyline by the villain Mr. Mxyzptlk to Darkseid. A near-similar plot, where The Joker became omnipotent and took over the world in "Emperor Joker" also used the idea of reality warping using the magic of Mr. Mxyzptlk.
