But as the Serpent’s mystical hammers transform friend and foe alike into unstoppable agents of destruction, as terror takes hold and the Serpent’s power grows, as Odin prepares to burn the Earth to cinders to save his people — it’s not these sacrifices the Avengers fear. It’s the knowledge that no matter what price they pay, this battle may be unwinnable. Heroes will fall, gods will die, and fear will rule the day — as the hammer falls!

Only Loki can save us! Fear has taken hold of the planet, and Earth’s only hope is that Thor can fulfill an ancient prophecy and destroy the Serpent — at the cost of his own life.

Loki and his team of damned souls and deadly foes are taking the fight to the seat of the Serpent’s power. But if the former Lord of Lies has any chance of saving the world, he’ll need to call on all the skills for mischief and deceit that made him so hated in his past life. Will Loki find redemption — or damn himself even further? Collecting JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY (1952) #626.1 and #627-631.

Meet Elektra Natchios, a young woman who has played many intriguing roles: gymnast, martial artist, ninja, assassin. But this enigmatic woman, trained in the arts of ninjitsu and renowned as the world’s deadliest assassin … is dead. Or is she? An unconscious woman washes ashore in a small Central American country. Two policemen are strangled. A diplomat is assassinated. A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is brutally dismembered. Unrelated events? Hardly. Elektra has returned. Whether she’s been miraculously resurrected or this is an untold tale from Elektra’s past is left for the reader to decide. But one thing remains certain, Elektra is back with a vengeance. From the combined talents of two of comics’ greatest innovators — Frank Miller and Bill Sienkiewicz — comes this psychological excursion through the mind, body and soul of the world’s most dangerous woman.
