AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE #12
“CHANGING OF THE GUARD”

Daddy’s home. IRON MAN comes to Camp Hammond, and he’s NOT happy.
The first year of the Initiative comes to a dramatic close as members are laid to rest, drummed out, declared AWOL, or…awarded their full Hero’s License. See who graduates and find out what super-teams they’ll be assigned to as the NEXT era of the Initiative begins! Plus: as a new 3-D MAN appears, the base is suddenly short one Skrull…but not how you’d think…
Also guest-starring MS. MARVEL!

NEW AVENGERS #40
SECRET INVASION TIE-IN!

Very special guest artist Jimmy Cheung returns to the pages of New Avengers for this very important tie-in issue. Spinning right off of events in NEW AVENGERS: ILLUMINATI #1, find out exactly how the Skrull empire was able to infiltrate the Marvel Universe and who instigated the invasion and why.

NEW WARRIORS #11
Would you trust a man who puts you in harm’s way? Someone who throws you into the path of a maniac for what he claims is the greater good? The New Warriors are becoming increasingly suspicious of their leader. When Night Thrasher pits the team against a super-villain who’s out of their league, the Warriors are left to wonder: What could possibly be worth their lives?

THOR: AGES OF THUNDER #1
As the Mighty Thor reclaims his rightful spot in the Marvel Pantheon, we join Matt Fraction and Patrick Zircher for a special examining the triumphs and tragedies that have befallen the God of Thunder across the eons. As the things he holds dearest are threatened by unimaginable forces of evil, Thor must rise up, again and again, to hold the line against terror and chaos as only the God of Thunder can!

ULTIMATE HUMAN #4
Hulk vs. Iron Man – the conclusion! The full scope of Peter Wisdom’s terrifying plan is revealed, but Tony Stark and Bruce Banner are powerless to stop his mad scheme! Has the world traded the horror of the Hulk for a menace many times more deadly? The dream team of Warren Ellis and Cary Nord deliver a shock ending to the climax of this critically acclaimed event.

X-MEN: LEGACY #210
In the wake of Messiah CompleX, there are no X-Men and mutantkind still lies in ruin. With Magneto depowered and Xavier gravely injured, it seems their reign as the preeminent mutants has ended. But neither of these old soldiers is willing to go gentle into that good night, as Exodus learns when he squares off against Xavier on the astral plane, with the fate of Professor X’s mind at stake.

DC

TEEN TITANS #58
Welcome to the mind of M’gann M’orzz, Miss Martian! It’s bad enough when the world you live in is alien to you, but when you have something inside you clawing to get out and destroying everything you stand for, that’s at least a little bit worse, right? Also: more of Clock King’s malefic machinations!
