The Story So Far.
How awesome a group cosplay would this be? (Answer: so awesome.)
That’s quite a battle cry, Cap.
Jim Jaspers X-Plains Jim Jaspers (but leaves out the part where he prosecutes Magneto).
The first death of Captain Britain.
“Have fun with that, dude!”

Slaymaster and his amazing mustache.
…is the best heist…
…even if it doesn’t end quite as planned.

Again: We cannot overemphasize how scary the Fury is.

Speaking of first appearances (well, at least in 616), here’s the Crazy Gang!
(Immediately followed by one of the most satisfying ass-kickings in any superhero comic, ever.)

NEXT WEEK: But wait! There’s more!
