Dejah Thoris has yet to meet the love of her life, but she has her hands full with the malicious Sab Than, would-be ruler of Zodanga, who sees kidnapping the princess of Mars as a short-cut to winning the thousand year war between his people and her city of Helium. Meanwhile Tars Tarkas is not yet the leader of his people, but instead an unambitious warrior who is caught between the desires of the female he loves and his best friend who needs Tars's help to become Jeddak of the Tharks...assuming that his ambitions don't kill them all. It’s a compelling tale of romance, court intrigue and an unending war on a distant world. Take an unforgettable journey to Barsoom. It’s a trip you can’t afford to miss!

Now, at his absolute lowest point, it will take Tony’s last reservoir of will — and a band of brothers including Thor, Captain America, War Machine and Black Widow — to keep from losing it all and sow the seeds for a brighter tomorrow. Stark Industries’ arms-manufacturing days are over: Tony’s new company, Stark Resilient, is bringing modern tech to the masses without bringing innocent people to their knees. But there’s a competitor on the scene, a mother/daughter team with a very familiar name ready to pick up the slack with an armor called Detroit Steel. They’ve started a deadly game of international intrigue that will bring one of Iron Man’s deadliest foes back into the fray — but for the Hammer girls, that was merely the opening salvo. With War Machine grounded by the Pentagon, Pepper missing the RT-charged heart that made her Rescue and Tony’s Resilient team struggling to put their clean-energy tech into production, they’re about to up the ante. Now, Iron Man’s going to find out just what “resilient” really means. Collecting INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #20-33.

“The gods fall, you ascend.” These simple words — whispered by the Norn Witches into the ear of Loki, the Norse trickster god — would set the world aflame! Loki has always been the consummate outsider, not as beautiful or favored as the other Asgardians. But did it have to be that way? Is Loki evil by choice — or by destiny? Find out as he undergoes his most wrenching ordeals — with epic results. Will Loki kill Balder, the Asgardian God of Light, in fulfillment of the Norn Witches’ prophecy? Will he dare tempt the power of Thor, God of Thunder? And will he bring about Ragnarok, the dreaded Twilight of the Gods, in a quest for power? Loki is capable of great evil. Can even fabled Asgard prevail against his treachery — and his destiny? Collecting LOKI (2010) #1-4.
