The Mighty Thor – The Galactus Seed | Comics

The "Siege of Asgard" led by Norman Osborn led The Sentry turning into his other persona, The Void, an Angel of Death who left Asgard in ruins like never before. In post-war, Odin All-Father sends Thor and Lady Sif in the furthest depths of Asgard to retrieve an ancient artifact called Worldheart; which is an immensely powerful cosmic heart giving birth to the world tree Yggdrasill, that later spawned the nine realms.

While retrieving it, Thor sustained injuries from the worm-like creatures defending it. His brother Loki came to his aid and they successfully retrieve the heart. The all-seeing Heimdall confronts Odin about the artifact and its origin. Odin discloses to him about an apocalyptic prophecy and then places the heart inside the Destroyer Armor for safekeeping. While the whole Asgard gathers to celebrate this feat, Thor remains mildly distracted with his gut-wound that glows instead of bleeding.

Silver Surfer has been a herald of Galactus for a long-time and his true intention of serving the destroyer of worlds is to let him feed onto barren planets that are dead for millennia, thus sparing the ones with sentient life forms in it. Now, he heads towards Asgard sensing the power of the Cosmic Seed and demands it from Odin.

This sparks a sudden heated confrontation between him and the thunder god until he explains his intention of using it to sate the hunger of Galactus forever. Warning the Asgardians that his master will come for the seed, Surfer leaves. For the final showdown, an elderly god must face the great devourer. It's Odin Vs. Galactus.

Invincible Iron Man – Unfixable | Comics
The Mighty Thor and Iron Man pays a visit to the Luna City of the surface of moon to check on a rogue Stark invention which is from Stark’s days as a weapon inventor that is causing catastrophic weather on places of Earth. Tony’s former secretary and personal assistant Pepper Potts, who is now an armored superhero like her boss, goes out on a solo adventure of her own as Rescue. And then there is the most unusual face-off between the Invincible Iron Man up against the classic Spider-Man foe, who is none other than . . . Doctor Octopus. Crazy, as it sounds, Doc Ock has recently reformed himself again and has eight mechanical arms of his own but he is no superhuman and his fragile mortal body can take only no more from a world full of super-powered individuals.

Doctor Otto Octavius has been taking a lot of tough blows from many of the heroes and villains alike for ages; especially from Spider-Man. He was bashed in the face by Captain America, hit hard by Daredevil, he even was blasted badly by Ultron himself and he is not up for it anymore. But Tony Stark thinks good ol' Doc Ock is not a big deal, or is he? With all the power, energy and countless world changing technologies at his disposal, Stark decides to rebuild Broxton, Oklahoma. Along with his former Sinister Six member Sand Man and Electro, Doctor Octopus hinders Tony’s plan by threatening to eliminate the lives of the current dwellers of Broxton and all he wants from him is fixing of his fragile, damaged body and salvation, that he believes only Stark can deliver to him.

Thirty Days of Night | Comics

30 days of night comic
Thirty Days of Night | Comics
For thousands of years, humans believed that Vampires are only a scary mythical creature of darkness who sucks blood and they only exist in the books and fantasy novels. Since people refuses to believe that these very lethal and heinous creatures are for real, it gives the Vampires an advantage what they need to keep the continuation of their existence running. Because, years of absence of these creatures from human-sight may have faded their memory from men’s mind but they are feared and hated by the humans since the "Council of Elders" made their presence known to public ages ago. After struggling for over a millennium, only a few of them made it out to the present led by an elder named Vicente.

Marlowe, one of Vicente’s own kind has raided the city of Barrow, Alaska, during a 30 straight days of polar night to have a non-stop feeding fest with a few of his blood-thirsty followers that made its residents known about the secret presence of them which their race has been keeping under cover for quite some time. Vicente eventually arrives at Barrow upon calling, only to confront and take care of Marlowe later for what he mindlessly did by blowing their cover to the humans and then decides to continue what Marlowe began anyway, so that there is no witness left to tell their tale. Sheriff Eben Olemaun along with his wife Stella Olemaun and a handful of survivors made a last stand against the Nosferatu. The winter may have had weakened them but since the night is young, the creatures of darkness are still to do a lot more to the humans.
