AXIS | Comics

Following Avengers/X-Men War, Captain America decided to form a team of The Avengers with human and mutant superheroes from X-Men. They were almost immediately troubled by Nazi super-villain Red Skull has stepped into war-torn island nation of Genosha to claim the powerful mind of Professor Charles Xavier from his corpse and to create an army to rule world in his vision. With his new-found psychic powers, Skull decides to re-ignite the age-old war between humans and mutants to eradicate the latter race from Earth forever but Avengers Unity Division came in his way.

Red Skull then escaped to Genosha, turning it into a secret mutant concentration camp where his army of S-Men tortures and ran experiments on mutants. Upon hearing about Skull’s activities, mutant terrorist Magneto arrives at Genoshan island nation to confront him only to be captured and tortured by Red Skull. Help came in form of Havok, Rogue and Scarlet Witch, who broke in to help him back to his feet again. In a blind fury, Magneto slays the entire fleet of S-Men assembled there as well as Skull himself with his enhanced power boosts from Mutant Growth Hormone.

Everyone present there thought his menace was end for good, only for the villain to re-appear as the terrifying Red Onslaught. As Red Onslaught, Red Skull spreads his message of hatred worldwide to wage a new "World War Hate". Overwhelmed by Onslaught's power, Wanda Maximoff briefly gave in to him and Magneto were tossed around to one of the camps where he finds Cyclops, Genesis and Kid Omega all captured. Genesis got stabbed by Ahab while Cyclops and Havok were fighting but then Colossus, Nightcrawler and Storm brings the cavalry of other heroes in.

In Los Angeles, The Avengers came across Plantman and are exposed to some sort of rage pheromone emitted by him. This caused Sam Wilson to insult Thor to get hit by Jarnbjorn, then Vision crashing Odinson through Quinjet and Doc Green getting angry. Sunfire suddenly attacks Wasp for no reason at all and then Iron Man finally put a stop to this madness by taking down Plantman. With other fractured teams of The Avengers, Inhumans and X-Men, Iron Man arrives to face Red Skull in his newest form but then the latter unleashes two Adamantium Stark Sentinels on them.

Skull had Tony secretly build those killing machines during Civil War under his evil influence to fight all heroes against his reign. When seriously outmatched by Stark Sentinels, Rogue suggested Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch to cast a spell that would invert Skull's moral axis and let Charles Xavier take over to stop Onslaught but didn't work at first for Nova's lack of experience. They reassembled once again only to fall, when Magneto arrives with an army of super-villains to buy Strange and Wanda time to complete their inversion spell but Stephen is taken out and Doctor Doom stepped in to help complete the spell.

Now their moral axis reversed, major super-villains like Absorbing Man, Carnage, Deadpool, Enchantress, HobgoblinJack O'LanternLoki, Mystique and Sabretooth turned into heroes and Doom was gone. Skull's body was left behind and a stir caused among the heroes regarding whether to wake him up to free Xavier or let The Avengers take custody of him. Meanwhile, X-Men members of Jean Grey School For Higher Learning have gathered from Genosha by Evan Sabah Nur turned a new Apocalypse to rule entire mankind by releasing a gene bomb to wipe out existence of all humans from New York City.

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!

New Avengers – The Collective | Comics

House of M changed the world and now a major threat rises from its ruins for New Avengers to face-off.

Before New Avengers were formed following a massive prison break at Raft, both The Avengers and X-Men band together to confront Wanda Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch in Genosha. Their face-off resulted millions of mutants losing their power due to her reality-altering abilities except a hundred few and it was kept a secret from all.

From outer space, a beam of energy starts heading towards Earth and landed on North Pole, Alaska, killing many people with a massive explosion. Out of piles of dead bodies and wreckage comes out a glowing man screaming in his loincloths.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Maria Hill calls in Tony Stark after they have gone public with their new team and asks him about "House of M", which he narrowly avoids answering. Hill is called in for a Red Alert situation that turned out to be recent destruction of Alaska and her initial response to send in some agents have failed pretty miserably.

Unable to get a hold of Fantastic Four, she contacts Alpha Flight when that energy crossed Canadian border but they all ended up being decimated within moments. Hill then calls for U.S. President, who suggests that she puts her arrogance away for a moment and call New Avengers for help now that the alien being is headed to America.

Unable to come up with any other solution, Maria Hill reaches to Avengers and updates them on the situation. As they talk, it already reached Cleveland and Captain America asks for S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Daisy Johnson. For additional backup, he talked to Bob Reynolds and calling for The Sentry but he was having a nervous breakdown.

Iron Man reaches out to Ms. Marvel for support and went to talk to this being who spelled out his name as Michael but before he could talk further, Carol Danvers attacked him from behind only to get struck down. She tried to approach him as she could absorb all energy and realizes that her cosmic Binary powers have been reactivated.

Spider-Man is sent to S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier with a task to lead "Team Two" and Tony reaches out for Vision of Young Avengers. Michael strips down Iron Man of his armor but Carol came in to save Tony from him. She then tried to hurt it back again only for The Sentry came swooping in at last minute and took him straight to space.

Ms. Marvel explains to Cap how it is like being kicked by fifty different super powers at once. In space, both Michael and Sentry were besting each other for some time before Bob is pushed far away and it headed back to Earth. Spidey and Vision helped S.H.I.E.L.D. figure out who this being could be before they are taken out for more info.

They found match to Michael's power with all depowered mutants in M-Day and Iron Man theorizes that "The Collective" energy of those powers had nowhere to go and then it found him, who was just an energy-absorbing mutant. After some debate, they decide to let the being pursue its course and see where it wants to go.

Michael then arrived straight to Genosha, former home of million mutants that has become a barren wasteland. There, he starts expelling all of that energy, causing massive power surge and it attacks a depowered Erik Magnus AKA Magneto. Things seem to quickly get out of hand but then Steve Rogers pulled on his secret weapon.

To tie-in loose ends of House of M event, writer Brian Michael Bendis (New Avengers – Breakout, New Avengers – Sentry) have collaborated with artists Mike Deodato Jr. (Amazing Spider-Man – Sins Past, Amazing Spider-Man – Skin Deep) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Death of Wolverine) for Marvel Comics in latest New Avengers story.

Titled "The Collective", it is comprised of issues #16-20 from first monthly ongoing titular comic-book series and came out in 2007.

Ghost of Genosha!

S.H.I.E.L.D. was aware that both The Avengers and X-Men knew something about this oddity but refused to share details with them. Therefore, its current Director Maria Hill seemed to act a bit antagonistic towards Stark and his New Avengers.

Nearing the end of their previous adventure "Secrets & Lies", Ms. Marvel came by for a visit and given a slight hint of M-Day when she met Captain America. A new trouble arises in horizon because of newly issued Superhuman Registration Act that will create a major rift within superhero community, causing a "Civil War" to set them apart.

House of M | Comics

On the island nation of Genosha, the world’s most powerful telepath and the leader of the mutant adventurer team X-Men; Professor Charles Xavier is witnessing the mistress of chaos magic; Wanda Maximoff, AKA the Scarlet Witch unsuccessfully giving birth to her twin children using her hex power. While Wanda was creating this illusion with Doctor Strange and The Vision at her side, Professor X told her to come back to the real world. Xavier forcibly puts her to sleep using his powers as Magneto enters the room to check her progress.

House of M | Comics

It seems that she is still having deep remorse over causing The Avengers team to scatter before she was forced into a deep sleep by Xavier, who expresses doubts on how long she can be contained to her father Magneto. The Avengers and other heroes have gathered to decide her fate and the majority have decided to eliminate her. Though, the majority of the crowd decided to end her life for the sake of world, Captain America asks them to look for an alternate solution that doesn't need killing her.

Wolverine steps up to volunteer for the job as no one else has the guts to do it. Others are worried about if the words of her insanity gets out on public, the existing human-mutant relationship will set back to ages. To save his sister from execution, a desperate Quicksilver begs his father to save Wanda from the crowd but got denied. As the heroes were looking for Wanda to ask for her decision over the matter, suddenly they all started vanishing into a blinding white light.

When the light is gone, everyone else discovers them in a new world with no memory of the previous event and a reality that they all desired. Spider-Man finds himself married to Gwen Stacy and Uncle Ben is alive too. Hawkeye is still alive here and works for underworld boss Luke Cage. The X-Men or The Avengers doesn't even exist and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s in-charge Wolverine has noticed this change of reality. Mystique has two kids; Rogue and Nightcrawler and currently in an affair with Logan. On top of everything, this new world is ruled by Mutants, not humans.

Wolverine goes on an investigation to get some answers and is captured by Luke Cage. He recalls how Wanda's psychic breakdown took the life of Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Jack of Hearts and Vision, then destroyed The Avengers. The folks present there believes his theory because apparently, a mutant girl named Layla Miller can show them the reality. Rest of the heroes of this world is assembled and awakened from their illusion to confront Magneto and finally end this falsehood forever.

During the course of action a similar alternate reality was created for a brief time in the manner of “The Age of Apocalypse” crossover which depicted a parallel universe. Regular monthly ongoing titles like Excalibur, New X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine, as well as several limited series like Fantastic Four – House of M, Iron-Man – House of M, Mutopia X – House of M and Spider-Man – House of M had acted as tie-ins for the event. Following the end of the event, everything was reverted back to normal as it were but the mutant population of the world is reduced to a hundred and few.
