JEAN SEBASTIAN-ROSSBACH
No more cat and mouse, no more games, no more Machiavellian manipulations, this is it, face to face, the unavoidable brutal showdown: The Punisher versus The Jigsaw Brothers! They’ve twisted the knife that The Hood left buried in Frank’s gut. They’ve dismantled his only friendship. They’ve killed innocent people in their pursuit of revenge. Now, they’re locked in a room with The Punisher, and they’re about to get everything they worked so hard for. Then some. This is it, the shocking conclusion to writer Rick Remender’s (Uncanny X-Force) Punisher saga, brutally illustrated by superstar Roland Boschi (Ghost Rider).

Before he was pressed into service for the Thunderbolts, the mysterious swamp monster of the team knew another life: as guardian for a force of nature called The Nexus of Realities. An old friend of the creature does remember this–and breaks the silent one out of The Raft to return to duty at the borders of our world. What danger awaits the Man-Thing–and what will The Thunderbolts say to losing their favorite plant? The team is back in action after word has come down on high about a weakness in Thunderbolt’s, and they must bolster their ranks to deal with the imminent magical threats. Luke Cage calls on New Avenger DOCTOR STRANGE to help find the perfect candidate to fill the role, but bringing this person in is far from easy–which is why SATANA will make a fine Thunderbolt. Back at The Raft, the status quo is changing to an even greater extent without Luke’s knowledge. Get ready for new levels of lightning-like justice!

Penciled by GIL KANE, JOHN BYRNE, LARRY HAMA, ARVELL JONES
& PAT BRODERICK
Cover by GIL KANE
In 1974, nobody was kung-fu fighting like Marvel Comics, and at the forefront of the craze was Daniel Rand — the Iron Fist! A Himalayan expedition in search of the mystical mountain city of K’un-Lun left 9-year-old Daniel’s father murdered by his partner Harold Meachum and his mother dead. However, Daniel found the path to the K’un-Lun, and there he spent a decade training under its immortal inhabitants. After years of ceaseless tutelage, he became an unmatched master of martial arts and spiritual control; armed with the shattering power of the iron fist, he left immortality behind to set out into the Western world and avenge his parents’ deaths. Packed with wall-to-wall kung-fu action, Iron Fist runs a gauntlet through the Kara-Kai death cult and ninja adversaries, and into mystic dimensions where the battle must be fought with mind and spirit. But Iron Fist’s saga not only follows Daniel Rand’s quest for vengeance — it also introduces Marvel mainstays Colleen Wing and Misty Knight, guest stars the Marvel Bullpen, and brings together for the very first time the creative team of Chris Claremont and John Byrne! It’s the beginnings of a true comic-book classic that can only be called a MARVEL MASTERWORKS! Collecting MARVEL PREMIERE #15-25 and IRON FIST #1-2.

As it turned out, the only thing crazy about the adventures of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes was how insanely exciting the lineup of Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch became! With super-sized conflict within the team and colossal menaces without, the drama made every issue a nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat extravaganza. Classic stories including battles with Kang the
Conqueror, Doctor Doom, Power Man and the Enchantress, and Attuma will prove that the Avengers are the world’s
preeminent heroes — while revelations like Captain America’s departure will test the team at its most fundamental level. But it won’t just be Cap’s Kooky Quartet against the world forever. In these pages, you’ll see also the return of Giant-Man and the Wasp, and Hank Pym’s transformation into Goliath!

Cover by JOHN ROMITA JR.
Bruce Banner has only ever wanted one thing: to be at peace with the love of his life, Betty Ross. The legacy of the Incredible Hulk has long made this an impossible dream. But now, with the Intelligencia seemingly having restored Betty to life, Banner’s pursuit of her has never been more relentless — or inconvenient. For after the Fall of the Hulks, with the master plan of the cunning Intelligencia hitting its every mark toward world domination and an army of Hulked-Out Heroes trashing the nation’s capital, the last thing his fellow fighters need to wonder about is Banner’s loyalty to them — or Betty. And all the while, Skaar, Son of Hulk, waits for the moment he knows is coming: the emergence of the green-skinned Hulk — so he can kill him and satisfy a lifelong quest for revenge! Collecting INCREDIBLE HULK #609-611 and INCREDIBLE HULK #312.
