Avengers – No Surrender | Comics

Earth's Mightiest Heroes are about to witness an end because of a cosmic game of two Elders of the Universe.

Miguel Santos was playing poker with a bunch of car stealers until his cover is blown and he revealed himself as Lightning before arresting them. Suddenly, a strange red light shines over Earth and reports of natural catastrophes started coming from all over the globe.

Beast updates everyone about the situation, Avengers' member Falcon became busy saving people on street, Doctor Strange and Miles Morales feels the anomaly, Kamala Khan AKA Ms. Marvel watches it coming and Vision tries to call to Alpha Flight with no avail.

Hank McCoy notices all the satellites are gone and points out that the planet is moved as T'Challa contacts world leaders. Back in New York, Hercules and The Mighty Thor has joined Sam Wilson to help. Jarvis and Nadia Van Dyne also caught up into this mess but the former is severely injured saving a boy.

Synapse and Doctor Voodoo of Avengers Unity Squad goes to crowd-control in San Diego while Human Torch, Rogue, Scarlet Witch and Wasp try to deal with a massive tidal wave. Meanwhile in space, Captain Marvel shockingly stares into the void where Earth and Moon once used to be.

Hawkeye and Red Wolf were at New Mexico, U.S.Avengers tackles a volcano eruption at Mount Vesuvius. Squirrel Girl sees a shooting star-like object that crashing onto Colosseum of Rome, to turn into a black pyramid.

Captain America is frozen in his position when he was observing the situation at Washington, D.C., as well as Black Panther, The Champions, Spider-Man, Vision, Wasp and X-Men. All active and reserve members of Avengers are called to assemble. When they all arrive at Avengers Mansion, they are greeted by a woman named Voyager, who claims to be a founding member of Avengers.

Surprisingly, almost every member of the team recalls her being there from the very beginning. When asked whether or not she want to lead, she pointed out to Citizen V, Falcon and Rogue as more suitable leaders.

In Egypt, deceased members of ThanosBlack Order and new Lethal Legion arrive out of nowhere and try to kill each other but voices from sky tells them to follow rules and not to engage until they find certain Pyramoids. In the mean time, Cull Obsidian showed up at Avengers Mansion and blew it up.

Although Quicksilver sensed it only moments before happening, even his powers weren't enough to save all but thankfully, Voyager managed to teleport everyone to safety. Apparently, En Dwi Gast or better known as Grandmaster was behind these chaos and he planned it with a fellow Elder of the Universe in his Cosmic Game Room.

Eons ago, En Dwi had tricked him into losing his mantle and banished from existence to become the Grandmaster but now he has returned as Challenger to reclaim his title.

Rogue assembles a team of heavy hitters like Cannonball, Hercules, Lightning and Thor on news of catastrophes over Rome with help from Voyager, leaving an enraged Pietro behind. She returns to teleport Sam's team to Peru, while Jericho and Wanda remained reserved to check on the ones in stasis.

Instead of listening what his sister had to say, Pietro rushed to help Rogue's team and Wanda was trying to break the stasis of Vision. She actually succeeds but doing so had also frozen her brother in battlefield in a crucial time.

Both Black Order and Lethal Legion were fighting into two separate teams, which the Avengers have run into. In the middle of these, Black Dwarf managed to secure a Pyramoid with help from Black Swan and vanished screaming.

Seeing that, everyone thought Dwarf have been disintegrated and Santos decided to rush to their friends to warn them about touching it but like always, Johnny Storm couldn't stay out of trouble and touched it. Another one those were grabbed by Red Wolf in an attempt to find Johnny.

After this new development Grandmaster and Challenger advances towards their next move and the latter reveals he has an ace in the hole in reserve. If you are wondering who that may be, wait until a certain thought--dead Green Goliath returns to smash all Avengers!

When the last Pyramoid is placed inside a hospital where Edwin Jarvis was being treated, Voyager reached to take it and he then reveals her true nature. In a final showdown, Enigma, Lightning, Red Hulk, Wonder Man and Vision will fall before a force of pure rage.

Avengers – No Surrender (Hardcover)

After the fall of "Secret Empire" crossover event, Marvel Comics hired comic-book writers Al Ewing (U.S.Avengers – American Intelligence Mechanics, U.S.Avengers – Cannonball Run), Jim Zub and Mark Waid (Age of Apocalypse, Avengers Vs. X-Men) to come up with a long-running storyline that brings together the team of Avengers, Occupy Avengers, Uncanny Avengers and U.S.Avengers fighting for one cause.

This arc ran through Avengers monthly ongoing series collecting issues #675-690, illustrated by Joe Bennett (Rann-Thanagar War, Teen Titans), Kim Jacinto, Paco Medina (New X-Men – Mercury Falling, New X-Men – Nimrod) and Pepe Larraz (Uncanny Avengers – Red Skull, Uncanny Avengers – The Man Who Fell To Earth).

Artist Mark Brooks (Cable & Deadpool – If Looks Could Kill, Star Wars – Han Solo) provided cover arts for the books included in the story. Following the destruction and restoration of Multiverse at the hands of Mister Fantastic during Secret Wars, the former Grandmaster gets a chance to enter this reality and started a rematch.

What En Dwi started years earlier as Contest of Champions with earthbound superheroes and villains has come to a new route and the stakes are higher than ever now. Return of many fan-favorite heroes into the fray really made the entire plot exciting and interesting. The epilogue also teases of the upcoming story arc, which is also cosmic-themed and titled "The Final Host".

Doctor Strange – The Last Days of Magic | Comics

A dimension which’s inhabitants used to worship the ancient being known as Shuma-Gorath as a deity, sent it's worshiping Blood Monks after a child who was promised to him. These people were accused of heresy for practicing science and not devoting themselves to magic. The boys' parents gave up their life to ensure that the boy's escapes along with a group of his created Eyebots. The boy grew up hating magic for the loss of his parents for it in the first place and its wielders became his prime target for elimination because of his childhood tragedy.

He now is The Imperator who leads Eyebots in his employ to hunt down and erase any trace of magic from existence by eliminating its users. As the Impirikul has finally reached Earth in search for Sorcerer Supreme of this dimension, they are hit with Atlantian Black Magic and stunned for a while. Other reputed sorcerers of Earth like Doctor Voodoo, Professor Xu, Mahatma Doom, Hellstrom, Scarlet Witch, Count Kaoz, Magik, Shaman and Talisman are also fighting the Impirikul around the globe with everything they have at their disposal.

Doctor Strange – The Last Days of Magic | Comics

Doctor Strange notes that The Mighty Thor is weeping above the clouds for no reason he can remember of and a Ghost Rider is probably screaming somewhere as the world of magic gone cuckoo. The Impirikul attempts to enter the Sanctum but they all got caught up by the mystical defenses of the house itself. Strange was barely able to even hold him off against the powerful Imperator on the very doorstep of Sanctum Sanctorum taking non-stop blows from the attacker until he finally faded.

Then when they were all lined up for execution in front of Sanctum, his old pal Monako shows up to free them all and teleport them away before meeting his impending fate. Strange and his allies goes for a quest to find every last piece of magic around the world for a last stand against the Impirikul. While making a run for salvaging whatever scrap of magic scattered around the globe, Strange is hounded by the Witchfinder Wolves of Impirikul. His companion for the road Médico Místico, Scarlet Witch and Talisman extracted from the situation before taking care of the Wolves.

In the mean time, Wong makes a quick rescue of Zelma from the Sanctum and the Eyebots have unknowingly unleashed a monster hidden in the cellar constructed from pain and sufferings of Stephen Strange that have the power to unleash doom on the Impirikul. Doctor Strange and his friends eventually showed up to change the tide of the battle with all the mystical relics they've gathered but even if Strange ever manages to somehow beat them, can he restore the balance of magic in the world that has been lost?

The supernatural lore of Marvel Comics got a new villain and he is currently after every other magic-wielder; especially Doctor Strange. So, comic-book writer Jason Aaron (Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine, Original Sin) and artist extraordinaire Chris Bachalo (Generation X, Steampunk) is having quite an impressive run on the Doctor Strange’s ongoing series which started with ‘The Way of the Weird’ and now has reached to "The Last Days of Magic". Illustrator Leonardo Romero also served as penciller for the tie-in issue, also written by Aaron. Gerry Duggan and Scott Koblish collaborated on the tie-in that features a certain Merc with a Mouth; Deadpool for some reason we are not sure about yet.

Last Protectors of Magic

As per with the recent release of the 2016’s live-action Doctor Strange film, Marvel took this initiative to re-define the mystic elements of its large fictional universe. Considering that, they are getting pretty good results as in a new chapter started with its very own background and can leave out trails to create more expanding arcs or crossover from it. Plus, the continuation of other Marvel characters related to magic from The Avengers or X-Men appearing and teaming up with the Sorcerer Supreme himself to save the world against a menacing brand-new antagonist was an extra delight for the fans.

Doctor Strange – The Way of the Weird | Comics

Doctor Strange passes each of his days weirder than the last and after returning to the world of living after Battleworld, currently he is busy fighting a tribe of Soul-Eaters from Netherworld who were desperately trying to fight back at him. He insists them to leave at once but they made him fight their champion whom he successfully beats with his mighty war magic, makes out with a female Soul-Eater who is into him and then it is revealed that he was actually exorcising a young boy’s soul on request of his concerned parents.

Walking back to his place he looks to the surrounding world wondering what if the people around him could ever see the world as he can. Mostly he pays no mind to all the inter-dimensional bacteria roaming around common people, unless he sees something that doesn’t belong in this plane of existence. After taking out one of such on road while the onlookers on the street point him out as a weirdo, he enters the Bar With No Doors to have a drink and meet his peers Doctor Voodoo, Scarlet Witch and Shaman.

Strange shares his most recent and unusual experience with the Soul-Eaters tribe with fellow magic-wielders. Doctor Voodoo thinks a single tribe of them going rogue can be a disconnected incident but Shaman believes it to be an alarm of an upcoming storm. As he heads back home to his Sanctum Sanctorum, Strange finds a girl named Zelma Stanton, a librarian from Bronx looking for him and he invites her inside deducing that she came here with her own weird problem to get rid of.

Since Zelma was initially hesitant to come here to talk about her problems, Doctor Strange invites her inside the Sanctorum and requests her to remove her hat. He takes a look at the growing teeth and eyes on her scalp to understand what he is dealing with here. Strange hits them with a spell and suddenly his entire house gets swarmed by Mind Maggots within moments. His personal assistant Wong locks down the house as Strange wanders around his mystical house with Zelma at his side looking for them.

Strange then absorbs them all into himself by tracking their ectoplasmic mucous strands still linked to Zelma and then luring them all to her back by making shout about her deepest dark secrets. The following day, Stephen finds out magic-consuming slugs are eating over the city and then he sends them all to coma with a magical blast. Doctor Strange and Wong enter the nexus point of dimensions called Fandazar Foo to investigate further only to discover it barren and to their horror; they found the Sorcerers Supreme of many dimensions, murdered by a group called The Impirikul, led by The Imperator.

As the new and fourth publication of Doctor Strange’s ongoing series kicks-in following his vital involvement in ‘Secret Wars’ as Doctor Doom’s sheriff, comic-book writer Jason Aaron (Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine, Original Sin) and artist Chris Bachalo (Generation X, Steampunk) takes responsibility of the Sorcerer Supreme legacy for a while. Issues #1-5 from the series was picked up to narrate a story that will lead to "Last Days of Magic", the next storyline from the series that will shake the mystical realms of Marvel Universe deep to its teeth and leave long-lasting mark for upcoming events to follow.

Rise of The Empirikul

Basically "The Way of the Weird" storyline doesn’t end here; it actually finishes with a cliffhanger to any final outcome and serves as a starting point of an end. That means, the ending point of this arc is a sort of prologue for what is about to come for the heroes wielding mystical powers and fighting supernatural threat. Not any known enemy that they have ever faced before is coming after them. Instead, someone with a deeply seeded vendetta against the magicians will fight them with the strength of science.

After Doctor Voodoo, Sabretooth, Sam Wilson and Vision have joined as new members; the team has been to High Evolutionary's Counter-Earth and discovers a dark secret about Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's past.

When Steve Rogers learns of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Pleasant Hill project regarding a Cosmic Cube in the form of a young girl named "Kobik", they got involved (Avengers – Standoff!).
