Written by JOHN RHETT THOMAS


In September 1970, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby - the two guys who built the Marvel Universe - closed out their run of 102 consecutive regular issues of FANTASTIC FOUR. That's a standard of consistency that has stood at Marvel ever since - until December, when Marvel publishes ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #103, the record-breaking comic featuring the union of writer BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS and artist MARK BAGLEY! Milestones like this demand the red-carpet treatment, and Bendis and Bagley are getting it in this special issue of MARVEL SPOTLIGHT! We'll cover these two singular creators and their careers at Marvel - including Bendis' work on NEW AVENGERS, DAREDEVIL and ALIAS, plus his Icon title POWERS. And Bagley is a Marvel veteran of long standing, so we'll talk about his varied career as an artist on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, NEW WARRIORS and THUNDERBOLTS! Be there to celebrate Bendis, Bagley and their special run on ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN!

Written by ALEXANDER IRVINE

"Equinox," Part 2 of 5


When the Son of Satan is your best option, God help you.


New Orleans. The Big Easy. The membrane between our world and the underworld has always been a little thinner here. Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the outpouring of human misery has drawn demons like sharks to a bloodbath. Demons who work for someone--or something--that's harvesting body parts in a furious race toward unspeakable purposes. For Daimon Hellstorm, this means one thing: It's hunting season. Like Sun Tzu said, "Some battles can be won without firing a single arrow. All you need to do is sow chaos." And who better to do that than the Son of Satan?


This is the Son of Satan as you've never seen him before, brought to you by acclaimed novelist Alexander Irvine (The Narrows), with searing art by Russell Braun (Animal Man) and Klaus Janson.

As greed and survival collide against a horrendous backdrop, a man named Simon Garth just might hold the key to everyone's survival...

Before he presided over S.H.I.E.L.D., before he ran with the Howling Commandos, Sgt. Nick Fury fought on the blood-stained sands of the Tunisian desert.

And it was there that he got a second chance at life - and revenge. In this gripping tale, Garth Ennis (GHOST RIDER, PUNISHER) and Darick Robertson (PUNISHER: BORN) offer a never-before-seen glimpse into the soul of a warrior you only think you know.

Spend the holidays with the Punisher! In RED X-MAS, 'tis the season - for revenge. Following an eight-casket funeral, a group of vengeful mob widows go holiday shopping for the perfect assassin to take down the man responsible - and enlist the services of the lovely and lethal Sicilian assassin known as Suspiria! In BLOODY VALENTINE, something sparks the little black pit in Frank Castle's chest - the one that used to be a heart! Suspiria's back, and she wants to kiss and make up. It seems the murderous pair have a mutual enemy, an arch-villain whose pursuit will take them to Suspiria's home turf of Rome. Can Frank withstand his partner's charms? Does he want to? And finally, are you ready for a little holiday cheer? No? Neither is Frank Castle. In SILENT NIGHT, he's more interested in tracking down a mob rat in the witness protection program and punishing him. But to do that, he'll have to face his greatest foe. Hint: He's fat, dresses in red and sports a white beard! Collects PUNISHER: RED X-MAS, PUNISHER: BLOODY VALENTINE and PUNISHER: SILENT NIGHT.

Cover by ALEX ROSS


Earth was saved, and the Celestial danger within the planet's core had been destroyed. Super-humanity had defied its creators and lived to tell the story. But for how long? Earth is on the brink of Civil War, and the surviving heroes of the Marvel Universe are left to fight those they once swore to protect until they can find a cure for the mutated populace. Humanity has become a race unwilling to give up its newfound power, a power that has given way to a war that will lead to the end of all life, as prophesied in EARTH X. It is upon this war-zone world that Captain America and Captain Mar-Vell begin a crusade to collect the world's greatest sources of power and weapons of mass destruction. But is this quest a means to merely protect humanity - or does it somehow serve a greater, darker purpose? Join creators Alex Ross and Jim Krueger in this chapter of the critically acclaimed, award-winning "X" trilogy. Collects UNIVERSE X #0-7, UNIVERSE X: 4, UNIVERSE X: SPIDEY and UNIVERSE X: CAP.
