In chapter one, “Paratroopers Over The Border,” American paratroopers in northern Kuwait must contend with choking sandstorms, high-adrenaline training, and the hair-trigger tension that dominates the tense run-up to war in Iraq. War arrives in deadly fashion on their doorstep – in the shape of ballistic missiles. To survive, they must rely on the skills of men whom they’ve never met, but whose fates are inexorably linked to their own. In chapter two, “Hair Trigger in the Desert,” spend a tense night with Cavalry troopers assigned to guard a secret command post just outside an Iraqi city they have been ordered to liberate.

Gathered together by Professor Charles Xavier to protect a world that fears and hates them, the X-Men had fought many battles, been on adventures that spanned galaxies, grappled enemies of limitless might, but none of this could prepare them for the most shocking struggle they would ever face. One of their own members, Jean Grey, has gained power beyond all comprehension, and that power has corrupted her absolutely!

Now they must decide if the life of the woman they cherish is worth the existence of the entire universe!

Collecting X-Men #132-140, Annual #4 with special bonus features including the original X-Men #137 story where Jean Grey lived “Phoenix: The Untold Story” and the Claremont/Buscema Phoenix classic from Bizarre Adventures #27!

MARVEL VISIONARIES: STAN LEE HC

Written by STAN LEE

Penciled by STEVE DITKO, JACK KIRBY JOHN ROMITA SR. & MORE

In celebration of its 65th anniversary, the House of Ideas proudly presents a timeless testament to another true Marvel visionary! In 1961, writer Stan Lee penned FANTASTIC FOUR #1, an historic issue unlike any comic book that had come before. This super-hero team had true personalities – they doubted their own abilities, battled problems of money and illness, and even fought among themselves. The monumental popularity of this realistic comic-book style inspired Lee to create similarly themed titles – including HULK, X-MEN and AVENGERS with artist Jack Kirby; and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN with artist Steve Ditko. By 1965, Lee had successfully established Marvel Comics as a cohesive universe populated by world-famous comic-book characters. Now, this deluxe keepsake edition collects his greatest moments – some never before reprinted:

o “Captain America Foils the Traitor’s Revenge,” CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS #3, Stan’s first story, a two-page text piece!

o “The Red Skull’s Deadly Revenge,” CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS #16, the defining Golden Age Red Skull story!

o “The Raving Madman,” SUSPENSE #29, Stan’s satire on Frederick Wertham and the comics witch-hunts of the ’50s!

o “Where Walks the Ghost,” AMAZING ADULT FANTASY #11, a short, twist-ending story by Lee and Ditko!

Plus: “Spider-Man,” AMAZING FANTASY #15; “A Visit With the Fantastic Four,” FANTASTIC FOUR #11; “How Stan and Steve Create Spider-Man,” AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #1; “In Mortal Combat with Sub-Mariner,” DAREDEVIL #7; “Bedlam in the Baxter Building,” FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #3; “And Who Shall Mourn for Him?” SILVER SURFER #5; “Brother, Take My Hand,” DAREDEVIL #47; “And Now, The Goblin,” “In the Grip of the Goblin,” “The Goblin’s Last Stand,” AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #96-98; “No More the Thunder God,” “When Gods Go Mad,” “One God Must Fall,” THOR #179-181; “While the World Spins Mad,” MARVEL PREMIERE #3; and “The Cycle of Life,” SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN SUPER-SPECIAL 1995!

Written by MATT CHERNISS & PETER JOHNSON

Penciled by MICHAEL GAYDOS

Cover by ALEX MALEEV

What makes a hero? Is it his actions, or is it the results of those actions? POWERLESS explores what it means to be a hero in very human terms. By re-imagining Marvel’s most popular characters without superhuman powers, this story strips down to the core heroes we have all come to know and love. These characters – including Peter Parker, Matt Murdock and Logan – were fated to be heroes. Just because Peter Parker wasn’t bitten by a radioactive spider doesn’t mean he didn’t do battle with a madman named Norman Osborn. Matt Murdock? Blinded, yes – but with no heightened senses. However, he did become a legal champion of the poor in Hell’s Kitchen, and he did cross paths with Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin. And Logan is, of course, the enigmatic – and amnesiac – drifter on the run from his past. Collects POWERLESS #1-6.

MARVEL PREVIEWS #17

Hey. HEY! Yeah, hellloooo! Down here! Sheesh! It’s Anya Corazon. You know, world famous (soon-ta-be, at least) Latina super hero. And you were about to turn the page weren’t ya? That’s so wrong. You don’t want to miss your chance to pick up this “indispensable ordering tool” (seriously, marketing guys?) Let’s just stick with calling it “Marvel Previews.”

It’s this magazine thing that totally looks like a comic – fully colored and glossy, and… Holy Johnny Depp! I’m totally on the back cover! AND there’s previews of my new (solo, thank you very much) comic book! Sweet! Hey! There’s tons of other previews in here as well (good job naming this thing)! This rocks!! Place your order for Marvel Previews 17 now. And you gotta buy my book: Araña. Oh, and here’s some quick Spanish 101- that little ñ makes it sound like “ennya”. Ah-Rahn-Ya. Got it? Good. Time for me to do my own homework, Ugh!

96 PGS./MARVEL PSR…JUST $0.99!
