    Art by JOE MADUIERA
    “YOU’RE A MEAN ONE, LOS ANGELES COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY”
    The law firm of Mason & Walters, LLP, sincerely wishes you, but cannot guarantee, a reasonably Merry Christmas and/or festive period on or about the end of December! But when thousands of Christmas gifts and decorations go missing, the LAPD arrests a local inhuman malcontent - but Shulkie suspects he’s being targeted just because he’s green! The D.A. has offered a plea bargain with a “mere” twenty year sentence, but in our legal system, you’re nice until proven naughty! The sensational She-Hulk won’t allow anyone to be convicted based only on propensity evidence (her client, admittedly, is as cuddly as a cactus and as charming as an eel). She’ll have to track down the real culprit, but is the actual “grinch” also gamma-irradiated? His muscles will grow more than three sizes this day! Can She-Hulk save Christmas?

But our heroes cannot rest - for the holidays are nearly upon us, and there are horrific fiends out there who desire nothing more than to end the season of giving! And there’s no greater horror than when you accidentally burn your Pillsbury’s Crescent Rolls!
    Real Talk: The team is exhausted after “Joe Camel” launched two major attacks during the biggest shopping days of the year. The timing is suspicious... but there’s no time to investigate. Years ago, Arnim Zola’s creation, the bioform known as Doughboy, was literally molded into “Poppin' Fresh.” But instead of joining the Super Team®, he was recruited by Joe Camel (see CORPORATE AVENGERS #3). After being defeated, the Control Group - the agency that handles superhero-based advertising - decided to blast Doughboy into space! He landed on the fiery realm of Muspheheim - but Doughboy refused to burn! Instead, he gathered a “Biscuit Battalion” and now he’s returned to Earth to claim revenge! Can Colonel Sanders, Tony the Tiger, Flo, and the Skinny Cow possibly stop his flaky warpath?
    Meanwhile, Joe Camel’s masters are pleased. Everything is going according to plan, and soon the Super Team® will be forced into the most dangerous fight they’ve ever had - and it will be during the half-time show at the Super Bowl!
    Soon: Conspicuous Wars!

    “WAR ON CHRISTMAS”
    The Ctrl-Left alliance of the Controller and Flag Smasher has a plan to force others to serve their radical ideology - and it starts with saying “Happy Holidays!” The seasonal cups at Starbucks not only don’t say “Merry Christmas,” but now contain miniaturized versions of the Controller’s slave discs! (“I’d say these bad hombres deserve coal for Christmas, but clean coal is too valuable a national resource.”). With coffee connoisseurs brainwashed into becoming BUCkies (Bold Urban Commandos) and rioting in the streets, it’s up to U.S. Agent, Tigra, Red Hulk, and the Squad to contain the threat! But to do that, they’ll have to recruit Ulysses Archer, a.k.a. U.S. Ace the space trucker, to deliver safe “Merry Christmas” cups to every Starbucks around the world! (“It’s hard-working, blue collar men who drive 18-wheelers that are really spaceships like U.S. Ace that are the backbone of our country!”).
    Meanwhile, instead of fighting the government and the All-Winners Squad, Tony Stark has acquiesced to Trump’s power of eminent domain. (“Selfish Tony finally saw the value in sharing tech to protect our troops. About time!”). But has Stark really changed his tune, or does he have a trick up his iron sleeve?
    Plus, as Silver Sable and Harry Osborn attempt to flush out the Hatute Zeraze - a Wakandan espionage network operating on American soil - Trump goes public with allegations that the African nation interfered in the 2016 election! (“Pussy Cat meddled in the election to help Crooked Hillary and little boy blue McCoy. McCoy even wanted Pussy Cat’s ex-wife as Secretary of the Interior. Obvious collusion!”). The pressure to find and arrest the Hatute Zeraze just intensified - and Punisher 2099 has some extreme options to suggest!

    "FUNERAL HOME ALONE”
    You always knew I was a little crazy, but you never suspected my diagnosis was seasonal affective disorder! I’m the Merc without a Merry Christmas, Deadpool, because my wife is stuck over in the New Dawn Universe (::Elvis voice:: “I’ll have a blue (balls) Christmas without you...”). Even worse, my chestnuts are about to get roasted over an open fire. See, somebody’s trying to muscle in on Arcade’s “Murderworld” business and has constructed an elaborate and sophisticated series of death-traps disguised as a suburban home decorated for Christmas! That somebody? A fiend who got his first taste for sadistic booby traps when he brutalized two would-be burglars as a boy. His name... is Kevin McCallister (Oh my god, we forgot Kevin!). Now he’s in his late 30s and is perfecting unique ways of killing heroes so he can sell his services to eccentric villains - and he’s testing his lethal traps on me! Over. And over. I’ve got to escape somehow, put an end to this unethical experiment, and kill this party monster...
    But I won’t have to do it all alone because I’m sure the rest of the Thunderbolts will realize I’m not with them on the team’s holiday getaway and come looking for me very soon. Right? ...right?

    Plot by GLOBAL HONORED
    Art by GEOF DARROW
    Variant Snake Plissken Cover by TIM BRADSTREET

    "You tell 'em I'm coming, and hell's coming with me"
    • Recap: Snake Plissken, Jack Burton and R.J. "Mac" MacReady with the help of old friends Egg Shen and Brain are headed to Chinatown, Manhattan in a weaponized Pork Chop Express to take down an alien invasion of "Things" as well as a resurrected Lo Pan. Also, since this is the futuristic world of 1997, New York City itself is a prison colony full of America's most dangerous criminals, so there's that...and so so much more....
    • The streets of NYC have always been a dangerous place, but these days it isn't the taxis and buses you have to watch out for, it is the four wheeled killing machines that own the roads. To make it to chinatown, our heroes must first survive Broadway's unbeaten and baddest wheelman. Word on the street is he's death proof. Make way for Stuntman Mike!
    • When our favorite Kurts finally come face to face with Lo Pan, one of their own shows his...er its true form. Mac wasn't human after all!?! (Well, that answers that debate!) MacThing has been waiting 15 years for the chance to shed his frostbitten body and bond with a creature truly worthy of hosting it. Today he has found that vessel and together they may rule this planet. The Thing meets Lo Pan!
    • Snake, Jack and friends quickly find themselves overpowered by this new terrifying predicament. It's going to take more than magic potion and a six-demon bag to make it out alive this time. The Kurts must retreat, regroup and recruit some back up before taking Lo Pan, and his alien possessed Lords of Death's best shot. Luckily, the NYC of this comic is filled with qualifying candidates...
    • Meet the Kurt backup squad: Gabe Cash, a supercop assigned to work undercover on this prison island but later abandoned by his handlers. He has been quietly investigating the alien rumors from the shadows. He's more than ready to shoot it out with the otherworldy invaders and get back to the mainland to make the men who burned him PAY. And he's got a new partner....Elvis Presley. Could this be the real King who faked his death 20 years ago or is he just some gun-toting impersonator who robbed a casino once? Either way, they'll need this Hounddog's help. There's the ferryboat captain who sneaks men on and off the island in the dark of night, Captain Ron, who knows an alien takeover would really kill his business. Down in the village there's an old gunfighter who runs the White Horse Saloon, goes by the name Wyatt. And their secret weapon, wonderkid Dexter Riley, the strongest man in the world with a brain that runs like a 1970s IBM Mainframe and a tricky knack for turning himself invisible. Oh, and they also have the help of an ageless antiques dealer that just happens to be in New York for something called The Gathering, wait what...Kurt Russell wasn't in that cult sci-fi classic you say, well our answer: now he is and an immortal head-chopping McKurt makes it epically more Awesome-R!
    • It's the Ultimate Kurt Russell Team-Up battling for the world itself against ancient alien warrior wizards. So just sit tight, hold the fort, keep the home fires burning and buy this comic!
      Trust me, it’ll be good for your Ego.

    “WELCOME TO PLANET NINJA” part two “ENTER THE DRA’GUN”
    Pagon, the Skrull who impersonated Elektra, has stolen his way onto “Planet Ninja,” a.k.a. Halana, a world founded long ago by silent assassins opposed to the Kree Empire. With pilfered knowledge of their ancient traditions, Pagon has issued a formal call for “Kreelago Dra’gun,” a fighting tournament to decide who is most fit to lead the planet. The elders of Halana are honor-bound and powerless to decline the challenge once issued... and so the tournament begins!
    Pagon is a deadly competitor - he possesses all the combat prowess of Elektra, whom he spent years training to mimic, plus shape-shifting physiology that he has learned to weaponize. He aims to win the tournament and claim leadership of the galaxy’s largest and most diverse group of ninja. To ensure this does not happen, his opposition must enter the Dra’gun: Echo, deaf combatant with photographic reflexes; Zen the intergalactic ninja, a Rigellian genetic experiment trained by the Mystic Masters of Om; and Elektra, leader of the Hand and Earth’s deadliest assassin! But these are only the ninja you know. Many others, from many other worlds with many other fighting disciplines, also answer the call. Can our heroes even escape the preliminary rounds?
    Meanwhile on Earth, with Elektra away the demonic ninja Deathwatch and his deathspawn ninja attempt to conquer the Hand. Severely out-powered, will acting-shogun Storm Shadow be forced into utilizing the black magics of the Hand that Elektra has forbidden?

    "Sins of the Father, Part I: The Killing"
    Eddie Brock survived his dance with ancient vampires and purified himself of their curse (with a little help from a guy named Blade, see the last 2 issues) but when he returns home, he'll discover a whole new bloody nightmare!
    Police have cordoned off his apartment, the body of the missing Daily Bugle journalist Ethan Edwards was discovered inside, having been bound, tortured and dismembered, but perhaps the most shocking and sensational aspect of the crime - Ethan it turns out was a skrull! Talk about headlines, the papers will jump all over this one - alien reporter heinously butchered by jealous coworker. Now Eddie Brock is on the run as NYPD's most wanted and, with his past, who will ever believe his innocence? Sure he may have kidnapped Ethan and kept him de-powered and locked in a closet thanks to stolen tech from the Baxter Building (see previous issues) and he may have even stolen Edwards' lead to scoop the vampire story...but kill him, that he did not do. Someone set him up, a classic frame job! Could it have been payback from his previous battle with the Skrulls? Why would Skrulls kill one of their own? That doesn't make sense. But who, how? And who anonymously called it in? Now Eddie Brock has to swallow his pride and ask for help from someone who may not be willing to offer it. Can Eddie convince Flash Thompson that his hands are clean and that the real killer is still on the loose, even if technically he may have been a bloodthirsty vampire over the past few days? And even if so, can they stop the murderer from striking again? News Flash (and spoiler alert - no, they can't): Bugle reporter Ralfie Markarian murdered in his home, with his body scattered over various rooms! They're now calling it "The Bugle Murders." Bugle employees are asked to seek immediate police protection while the NYPD, the super hero community, and even the Skrulls hunt for Brock. Oh Eddie, who did you seriously piss off this time!?!

    Variant "The Great White Whale's NYC" Cover by PAUL LOUISE JULIE
    "GAME-CHANGER"
    • Our rag tag team of heroes (Kasper Cole, Dakota North, Jessica Jones and Misty Knight along with the assistance of their reluctant but compliant informer Turk Barrett) have located the whereabouts of the missing teens, concocted an impromptu plan and now must make an assault on The Great White Whale's skyrise fortress. Inside the building they will discover an army of heavily armed thugs. In order to get to the top to where the kids are held and the big boss is waiting, they have no choice but fight through the gangsters' gauntlet, one deadly floor at a time.
    • Meanwhile, on the top floor where the brilliant youngsters are connected to a human mainframe, Miles Morales continues to play the role of helpless victim. He allowed himself to be caught so that he could track the kidnapped kids but now that he's found them in a catatonic state, their minds linked to some sort of cyberbio interface, is it time to show the bad guys just who they're messing with, Spidey style?
    • Just before Miles reveals his powers, our busted up heroes bust through the door. The Great White Whale is...Noah Black?!? Noah recklessly orders the last of his goons to take out Kasper, Misty & co., basically leading them to slaughter, while he attempts to make a crafty getaway, for Noah Black always has a contingency plan in place. But poor Noah did not account for this scenario - as he opens his "secret" escape hatch he sees his hired hand Cottonmouth flying off to freedom. Cottonmouth ain't playing the sucka for nobody, you dig!
    • Noah Black, aka The Great White Whale, and his dream of creating a super-villain's version of Amazon and Google all rolled in to one off the unwilling minds of tomorrow's visionaries, has been foiled. Even in defeat, Noah refuses to cooperate with our heroes, and warns them that shutting down his machine could prove fatal for the kids attached to it. Luckily, one of the captives, a bright kid named Miles from Brooklyn is conscious, clever and capable of figuring out how it all works, successfully shutting down the program and releasing the other brainiacs. Hey thanks, kid, you really saved the day!
    • Epilogue: Kasper Cole is hanging out at the Marvelous Ladies Detective Agency when guess who drops in. "I was just swinging by and thought I'd introduce myself, I am the new Spider-Man around here and I have heard good things about you. Saving those kids was good hero..ing...and stuff. Anyways, I think maybe we can help each other out, crime fighter to crime fighter and all. Anyways, just give me a call sometime when you need help...here is my cell phone number. See you."
      Jessica Jones seems to recognize the voice and winks, "Sure thing kid, see you around."

    HUMAN WASTELAND
    It's 10 past Midnight and the long, dark road to vengeance has led Frank Castle to the small town of Winnow, a blip on the map on the outskirts of Chicago. Leads on a human trafficking ring have brought him to a trucker's pit stop full of misery and despair. He waits patiently as his target arrives in an unremarkable nondescript car. The driver gets out to survey the area as his partner in the passenger seat pulls out a young girl no more than seventeen from the rear of the car. A meeting has been set-up between the traffickers and a buyer of human commodities. The girl struggles to escape but the two men quickly overpower her as another car arrives. A third target steps out of the vehicle and opens a brief case full of money. The deal has been closed, the property paid for and another successful transaction has been made. The men would have enjoyed a good night if not for the bullets that splatter each of their brains like eggs on a sidewalk. One young life has been saved as Frank makes sure that she safely makes it to the police station. As he prepares to leave, his instincts have him whirl with guns raised as he hears a sound from a nearby alley. He approaches cautiously to hear a muffled sound and movement inside a dumpster. As he opens the lid, he's surprised by what he finds when he moves the trash and debris: a newborn baby only a few weeks old. Frank cradles the babe in his arms, looking to see if the mother or anyone else is in the area. Another soul saved this night and another target to hunt down. The person who threw out a baby like so much trash! Next Issue: Sex, Lies and Bullets!

    ADAM WARLOCK HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2017
    Words & Arts by MIKE & LAURA ALLRED
    Plot by GLOBAL HONORED
    • Being an intergalactic messiah has it’s perks, but there’s also so much pressure and expectation that goes along with it. Each alien race wants their chosen savior to fit their unique ideal and frankly Adam just can’t be everything to everyone all the time. Pretending to do so makes HIM feel a little like a fraud. What he really needs is a little break before he snaps and goes all Magus again. Coincidentally (Not to get too metaphysical in an Adam Warlock comic but are there ever really coincidences?) his pal Pip the Troll has been pestering him about investigating a newly discovered pocket universe called the Holiday Zone, that advertises an existence of nothing but fun and recreation, a literal escape from one’s cosmic troubles, open for eternity. Sounds like paradise, right?
    • Just before arriving, Adam and Pip rescue a group of recent Holiday Zone tourists whose ship has broken down while reentering the galaxy, yet the stranded crew seem disinterested in working to repair it despite being perfectly capable of doing so, refusing to take responsibility for the accident that left them floating aimlessly in space, and angry that Adam and Pip took so long to arrive. They won't even offer a thank you. Maybe this group needs another holiday from their holiday, huh? Just wait until our heroes start their own vacay.
    • The holographic sign reads “Welcome to Holiday Zone, where you will forget all your worries, forever!” What they'll discover, what is really being sold isn't relaxation at all but rather an endless mind-numbing barrage of shiny attention grabbing distractions of feint importance that suck the minds and souls out of all visitors under the guise of BIG ENTERTAINMENT purporting to personalize the enjoyment for each life form while really depersonalizing the life form itself into hive mind mentality focused on interactive amusements, addicted to the next fix of FUN. You can really forget just who you are or what you stand for in a place like this. Meanwhile "The Planning Committee" that oversees Holiday Zone nefariously plots to shape the minds and motives of their guests before releasing them back to universe. Can Adam and Pip resist the urge to lose themselves permanently in time to perform a true Holiday miracle or will the puppet masters prevail once again? This story just might need a savior after all....

    "THE LIGHT DIMENSION" part two “PLANET OF NINE LIVES”
    Free from the oppression of the now-dead Dormammu, the rocky hides of the seemingly endless legions of Mindless Ones have fallen away and revealed people - mostly very scared and confused people. In seeking to reclaim their lives so long taken from them, these “Re-Minded Ones” turn to the heroes responsible for their liberation - the Defenders!
    The feline Thunderans seek to return to their world after its recent conquest at Dormammu’s hands (see THE DEFENDERS #22), but their mortal enemy Mumm-Ra refuses to allow any but the Ancient Spirits of Evil to claim dominion over the remains of Thundera! Can Hulk, Namor, and Dr. Strange help Cheetara and her people defeat the undead sorcerer and finally reclaim their home?
    Meanwhile, the majority of realms ravaged by Dormammu have been rendered uninhabitable. For the Re-Minded Ones who lived on those worlds, there is no going back. Faced with the biggest refugee crisis in the history of the multiverse, the Silver Surfer must lean on his experience as a herald of Galactus. Where once he found worlds to be devoured, now he must find worlds to be settled by a massive displaced population! But worlds that at first blush seem idyllic often hold secret dangers beyond comprehension...
    Plus, the recently slain Skeletor sells his soul to Mephista for the chance to live again! And Mephista plans on keeping his soul nice and safe in property she just acquired in her recent divorce - the Sanctum Sanctorum!

    "Next of Kin" Part One
    WRITTEN by Neal Gaiman
    ART by Clayton Crain
    Plot by Zach
    The LIVING MUMMY has moved to Arizona! After learning that he is listed as an ailing resident's next of kin N'Kantu has relocated to the Golden Sands Retirement Home. There he met Abilene Maycrux, a spirited 87 year old former actress and model, who claims to be his descendant!
    Although his limited ability as a conversationalist proved to be an obstacle the pair quickly bonded. Abilene was happy for a new car for a lifetime's worth of stories of her time in show business, the mummy appreciated the company. The two sat in the park together, watched reruna of Abilene's movies, and even proved to be a formidable team in Bingo Night.
    The mummy thought he had found a place to hang his wrappings, at least for a time, but fate had other plans. Another resident was recently found Dead, apparently strangled. It looks like foul play is afoot and all signs point to our hero. Can N'Kantu clear his name? Will He and Abilene finally wipe the smug grin off Myrtle's face in the next Bingo tournament? Find out in ... The LIVING MUMMY!

    •PHOENIX stands trial for freeing the former PRIME SENTINELS without permission and for unlawfully entering the minds of the mayors of Utopia, DAVID the POSTMAN and ASTRID BLOOM. Having found no evidence that they used their mental powers to win the election or to incite anger and fear in Utopians, Jean may find herself and her increasingly unpopular X-Men eXiled!
    •ARCHANGEL and CANDY 'SERAPH' SOUTHERN's twins are born on the solstice! Announcing the births of BELLE and WARREN WORTHINGTON IV! Mutant babies born of a human mother and mutant father, their DNA infused with CELESTIAL technology? Sounds like the messiahs the ACOLYTES' religious texts foretold! CLAN AKKABA, the cult of dead APOCALYPSE, also wants the newborns, and both sides will tear Utopia, each other, and anyone who gets in the way apart to get them!
    •As KATU calls down destructive tentacles of cold plasma sprites from the upper atmosphere to blast the shapeshifting cultists, SENYAKA's psi-whips, VINDALOO's flaming napalm, and MELLANCAMP's claws tear through the PSI-COPS protecting the infirmary!

They don't want to return to his mind for reintegration, and to ensure this, some of them plan to remove David's head!
    •Someone or something is trapping David's psychic essences and making them HOUNDS: mutants with various powers transformed into vicious trackers and killers of other mutants! Aromatherapy deep cleanse facials can't be the cause of this. Or can they?
    •With the help of the memory-manipulating splinter personality calling himself PTONOMY, can David free his other states of mind from the embrace of the mysterious dark queen perverting their temporary bodies?

    •The recently reawakened EMMA FROST takes stock of where and when she is and what she will do now. SIRYN worries about her father Banshee's post-resurrection attitude adjustment. DAZZLER prepares to sing at a rocking new year's eve party in Time's Square. And M, the PENANCE TWINS, and EMPLATE do what they've always done: pretend like nothing is wrong and enjoy X-Mas family dinner.
    •The armoured NANNY and her fearsome ORPHAN MAKER have been kidnapping mutant children with Down's Syndrome or other developmental conditions from notoriously impoverished, dangerous, and anti-mutant countries, to care for them at Boston's Sunset Orphanage. Will DR. CECILIA REYES, TRIAGE, and ELIXIR alert the authorities or can Nanny's activities be covertly sponsored by X-Corps? It could be just the X-Mas miracle these very special youngsters need.

    "CHRISTMAS MUSIK”
    As Kitty lights the menorah and Nightcrawler decorates the tannenbaum, the team’s X-Mas celebrations are going to be anything but jolly!
    Buenos X, formerly Buenos Aires before the detonation of a weapon of mass mutation, succeeded in declaring independence from the oppressive and anti-mutant Argentinian government. But Daken, son of Wolverine and former leader of the mutant terrorist organization MUSIK, was seen fighting the Weapon-X group for Buenos X’s independence (last ish - Ex.) and pictures have reached the White House! These “terrorist ties” cause the new city-state to be deemed a rogue nation by the U.S. President, who vows to take all necessary action to ensure MUSIK does not rise again! After consulting with former world leaders Hank “Beast” McCoy and Piotr “Colossus” Rasputin, Professor X believes the best option to avoid escalation is to hand Daken over to the All-Winners Squad to answer for his crimes. Problem is, Daken has vanished! It’s a mad dash for Wolverine, Storm, and the others to find Buenos X’s most wanted before America attacks - but in a city full of disgruntled mutants, Daken has radicalized some friends of his own! You just can’t stop the MUSIK!

    “ONE, TWO, THREE, COME FLOAT WITH ME…” Part 1 of 4 “27 YEARS LATER…”
    Theme Song: Bruce Springsteen - Santa Claus is Coming to Town
    Twenty-Seven years after his first encounter with Pennywise the Dancing Clown, ERIK LEHNSHERR finds himself lured back to the small town where it all began, Derry, Maine. Erik this time has the Brotherhood of Mutants with him, but the now-adult kids who he worked with to defeat the Clown last time have failed to show, for whatever reason. And that’s probably a good thing, because this time, Pennywise isn’t going to hold anything back, and if the Brotherhood thought that New Orleans was challenging – they haven’t seen nothing yet! One by one, they start getting attacked by something that claims it has everything they desire. And for some of the younger Brotherhood recruits, tired of a life constantly on the run, PENNYWISE’s false promises may be to hard to ignore. Either way, regardless of Pennywise’s presence, The Brotherhood’s days may be numbered when they decide to take residence for the Christmas period at the abandoned hotel known only as The Overlook Hotel, a sister hotel with the same name – and a similar horrible past – to the one in the Rocky Mountains…
