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!

But nothing they’ve ever faced has prepared them for Deadpool! When the wisecracking, gun-toting one-man army surrenders to the shape-shifting aliens after saving a baseball stadium full of innocent civilians from a Skrull attack all by himself, the invaders isolate his healing factor and replicate it in the newest generation of Super-Skrulls — a brigade Deadpool himself will lead against the Earth defense forces. Or so they think. What the Skrulls don’t realize is that Nick Fury is footing the bill! But when the data Deadpool swipes is stolen in transit by Norman Osborn, who uses it to kill the Skrull queen and win the gratitude of everyone on Earth, Wade figures the ex-Green Goblin owes him one — and he intends to collect. The maniacal Merc with the Mouth unleashes a full-on assault against the Osborn-controlled Avengers Tower, and Norman is forced to pull out all the stops to save his own skin — and that means deploying his brand-new team of bloodthirsty black-ops Thunderbolts!

They descend on the little Mexican town of Tierra Rota under cover of night, abducting its women and returning them days later like broken dolls. Frank Castle is no hero, but there are some things the Punisher just can’t abide. Injected with a serum that will leave him dead by dawn, there’s only one thing Frank wants to do before he dies: take as many bad guys as he can with him. Traveling the Louisiana back roads, the Punisher steps into a world of unspeakable horror. He’s crossed paths with plenty of unsavory characters, but nothing has prepared him for the Geautreauxs. Vette’s little black book is filled with the dark secrets of movie stars, politicians and gangsters — including a powerful Miami drug lord who hides in an impenetrable fortress. And Vette is the Punisher’s ticket inside. There’s nothing like fishing with friends, especially on the eve of the biggest criminal deal of your careers. Until your engine explodes, your boat sinks, and the backstabbing begins — and the only life preserver is in the hands of a man who wears a black shirt with a skull on it.

Now, the Deathloks have begun appearing in the present, as well, seeking out current and future vigilantes — and neutralizing them with extreme prejudice. After warming up with some less-threatening opponents, the next name on their list is none other than Captain America. To prevent Roxxon’s rise and the eventual slaughter of the world’s heroes, Wolverine must join forces with a mysterious woman possessing unexplained knowledge of the coming dystopia. He won’t give up until the Deathloks are stopped, but what hope is there to prevent a future already come to pass?
