Following a fight with new criminal Tracer in FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #1, a Dr. Castillo informed Spidey of his impending death after she ran a blood test, and to make matters worse, Morlun returned to spy on Mary Jane in MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #19. Later, Morlun appeared to the wallcrawler to taunt him with riddles as our hero grew ever weaker from his strange sickness…

Stephen Strange seeks his replacement as Sorcerer Supreme with the New Avengers!

To become the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Strange trained for ages with The Ancient One and eventually took his place. When Strange realized he’d lost the mantle in 2009, he followed the Eye of Agamotto to find his own replacement in a story by Brian Michael Bendis, Billy Tan and future DOCTOR STRANGE series artist Chris Bachalo.

What brought about Strange’s downfall? “I abused my powers as Master of the Mystic Arts,” he told Wiccan in NEW AVENGERS #51. He didn’t get into specifics with the Young Avenger, but he referred to his attempts to defeat his former Defenders teammate in World War Hulk as well as the dark path he followed to save his teammates from the Hood’s gang in the pages of NEW AVENGERS ANNUAL #2.

Up until that point, he’d been a member of the Avengers and even offered the Sanctum Sanctorum as their headquarters, but asked them to leave and quit the squad after the traumatic events. By the time Strange reappeared in NEW AVENGERS #51, he saw fit to find his replacement as the Sorcerer Supreme, hence the meeting with Wiccan who proved to not be the chosen one.

After an attack by the demonically possessed Hood, Strange found himself crashing into the New Avengers’ latest headquarters, Bucky Barnes’ Brooklyn compound. He explained his situation and the team offered to help out on the grounds that they wanted to take down The Hood once and for all.

All signs pointed to New Orleans where The Hood fought Daimon Hellstrom, otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Thanks to the assistance of his mad lover Madame Masque and a power-boost from a secret benefactor, Hood actually holds his own against Hellstrom, Strange, and the Avengers. That is until the new Sorcerer Supreme, Brother Voodoo appeared!

With the soon-to-be Doctor Voodoo in the field, the Hood’s helper showed himself to be none other than the dread Dormammu! However, the extra-dimensional evil proved no match for the newfound, raw power of Voodoo.

Understandably confused, Jericho Drumm agreed to train with Strange to become the most important mage in this and any other plane of reality!

Opening the Book of Vishanti

Brother Voodoo first appeared in STRANGE TALES #169, the first issue after Doctor Strange moved on to his own solo series. He kicked around the Marvel Universe, showing up for longer stints in books like Reginald Hudlin’s BLACK PANTHER and NEW AVENGERS. After gaining the role of Sorcerer Supreme in the above story, he continued to appear in this series and the following volume as well as the 2009-launching five issue limited series DOCTOR VOODOO: AVENGER OF THE SUPERNATURAL by Rick Remender and Jefte Palo.

The bad guys come together to tear their archenemies apart in these escapades!

Sometimes super villains can play nicely with each other, as long as their specific ideas of world domination and hero humiliation happen to overlap.

The bad guys will take over the spotlight in a big way as part of AXIS, this fall’s mega event spinning out of the pages of UNCANNY AVENGERS. This evil type of love will be felt again when Doctor Doom shows up in LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD #6, joining the god of mischief in preparation for the Red Skull’s takeover in AXIS.

But before those two get together later this month, take a look at these five other super villain team-ups, presented here in chronological order!

1. JUGGERNAUT & BLACK TOM

Uncanny X-Men (1963) #103

Uncanny X-Men (1963) #103

What is Marvel Unlimited?

These two super powered crooks’ partnership runs a lot deeper than knocking off banks and annoying the X-Men. Juggernaut and Black Tom Cassidy also happen to be best buds for life. Their bromance began with Tom’s first appearance in UNCANNY X-MEN #101 and continued through the next few issues as the duo put the X-Men’s new recruits—Storm, Colossus, Wolverine, Banshee, and Nightcrawler—through the wringer.

2. DOCTOR DOOM & MAGNETO

This team-up didn’t go exactly how either participant wanted it to. Magneto approached Doom with a plan to take over the world together, but the arrogant dictator took offense to the Master of Magnetism’s offer. Doom does not share! Instead, he took control of Magneto’s brain and threw his new living weapon at the Avengers. Magneto shook off Doom’s influence in the middle of the battle and then swore vengeance.

3. ACTS OF VENGEANCE

More than just two Marvel super villains teamed up in the during the Acts of Vengeance storyline. Super villains like Kingpin, Loki, Red Skull, Mandarin, Dr. Doom, Wizard, and Magneto revealed their new alliance in AVENGERS #312 and began a war. The bad guys’ big plan to trade opponents and catch the heroes off guard worked well for a while—until the super villains started double-crossing each other.

4. THE SINISTER SIX

Doctor Octopus began reforming his old Sinister Six team in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #334 and eventually brought Vulture, Mysterio Electro, Sandman, and Hobgoblin together to crush Spider-Man. As always, Doc Ock had another motive and viewed his five “allies” as a tool to use for his own personal gain. Once Sandman switched sides and joined Spider-Man, this newly formed Six fell apart fast.

5. THE HOOD’S CRIME SYNDICATE

New Avengers (2004) #35

As a petty criminal with a demonic cloak, the Hood never got the respect he wanted from the A-list bad guys. Instead of sucking up to villains like Red Skull or Doom, he turned to his other underestimated bad guy brethren. The Hood offered forgotten criminals like the Controller, Grey Gargoyle, Jigsaw, Madame Masque, Mandrill, Mister Hyde, Tiger Shark, and a dozen others a hefty sum of seed money to turn themselves into hero-crushing machines. His Crime Syndicate then went up against the New Avengers—and nearly beat them.

This group of super hero masterminds takes risks every month in New Avengers!

Most super heroes have to keep a secret identity intact, but a select handful of Marvel’s most powerful individuals have chosen to add another layer of secrecy on top of their already complicated lives.

The members of the Illuminati—originally Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic, Doctor Strange, Namor, Black Bolt, and Professor X—all chosen to keep their involvement in the covert group of movers and shakers a secret from their super hero allies. But what could these good guys possibly want to hide? They still have Earth’s safety in mind, but—as you’ll see—that safety comes with a heavy moral price.

Here are five of the most controversial actions taken by the Illuminati, presented in chronological order!

1. Secret Skrull War

New Avengers: Illuminati (2006) #1

New Avengers: Illuminati (2006) #1

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Soon after the Illuminati’s formation (which can be seen in flashback in NEW AVENGERS: ILLUMINATI), the Avengers found themselves caught between the warring Skrull and Kree empires. When the dust settled, the members of the Illuminati wanted to say “get out and stay out!” directly to the Skrull empire. Their small raid on the throne world didn’t go as smoothly as planned, and the Illuminati left behind enough genetic material to give the Skrulls the scientific advantage they would need to make SECRET INVASION possible.

2. Nothing’s Wrong With S.H.I.E.L.D.

New Avengers (2004) #10

Readers learned of the Illuminati’s existence in the second arc of NEW AVENGERS, when Iron Man confronted the rest of the secret society with the existence of a mysterious man called the Sentry. Most of the gathered Illuminati members gave Tony Stark their blessing for forming the new Avengers team, and they trusted the billionaire to keep a close eye on the Sentry as well. Tony flinched, though, when asked about the super spy agency’s increasing shadiness. Iron Man lied about what he knew, as he had encountered rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in the Savage Land just a few days earlier.

3. Bye Bye Hulk

After the jade giant destroyed Las Vegas, Iron Man had to come up with a hard solution to the planet’s Hulk problem. That fix: blasting Bruce Banner into space towards an uninhabited planet. Stark brought the solution to his Illuminati teammates, receiving votes of approval from all of them except for Namor. This one decision set the stage for Planet Hulk and—much to the Earth’s dismay—World War Hulk.

4. Playing Infinity Gem Keep Away

Mr. Fantastic thought he had figured out the perfect way to destroy the incredibly dangerous Infinity Gems once and for all. With the help of the Illuminati, Reed Richards gathered all six Gems together and tried to use their combined power to erase the objects from existence. The plan backfired and forced Richards to reconsider his options. He gave the members of the Illuminati one Gem each to protect, but that decision just made them easier for The Hood to later steal.

5. Mind Wiping Captain America

Faced with the threat of incursions—contractions within the Multiverse that causes parallel Earths to collide—literally hanging over their heads, the Illuminati reformed to save the planet once again. This time, though, they would have to destroy the alternate Earth in order to save their world. Captain America would not condone this course of action, even as the rest of the team began constructing a planet-destroying weapon. Illuminati member Doctor Strange then used a spell to erase Cap’s memories of his time with the covert group.

The Illuminati make even more extreme decisions in October’s NEW AVENGERS #25!

Before Earth's Mightiest get an influx of new recruits, check out some of the most offbeat additions the Avengers ever made!

As Marvel’s biggest super hero team heads into the Avengers NOW! initiative this fall, the halls of Avengers mansion will be populated with a number of fresh faces.

An ever-changing and expanding roster has become the norm for the Avengers over the past 50 years, as heroes—and sometimes villains—from all walks of life have added an official Avengers membership ID card to their super-wallets. But no matter how odd you might think some of the incoming members might be, just remember that making Avengers out of the most unexpected and unlikely heroes around has kinda become the team’s thing.

Here are six of the most unlikely Avengers of all time, presented in chronological order!

1. HAWKEYE

Avengers (1963) #16

Avengers (1963) #16

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Before you get up in arms about the inclusion of the Avenging Archer on this list, you have to put his addition to the team in context. At the time, Hawkeye was a carny-turned-criminal who used trick arrows to annoy Iron Man and pined away for the Black Widow’s affection. His induction to the Avengers, the team that previously included every one of Marvel’s powerhouse heroes, seemed like a real head-scratcher at the time. Hawkeye came into his own and not only became a definitive member of the team, but an inspiration to human heroes everywhere.

2. DOCTOR DRUID

Avengers (1963) #279

There’s only room for one mystical wizard in the Avengers’ ranks, and that spot most definitely has to go to Doctor Strange. If you’re not gonna get Strange on the team, which the Avengers tried to do for decades, then the mystical telepath Anthony Druid would make for a fine substitute. Unfortunately for Doctor Druid, he spent most of his time as an Avenger as a mind controlled operative of the super villain Ravonna. He eventually broke free of the brainwashing, but his reputation had been tarnished.

3. SANDMAN

The Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #348

The Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #348

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Yeah, Sandman. The Spider-Man villain attempted to turn over a new leaf in AVENGERS #329 when he became a reserve member of the Marvel Universe’s most prominent super hero team. Sandman’s good intentions didn’t pan out, though, when he stopped a street-level crime—an offense that did not meet the world-threatening criteria specified in the team’s charter. Sandman quit, assuming (incorrectly, as it turned out) that Captain America would fire him over the mistake.

4. DEATHCRY

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Every super hero team in the 90’s needed an animalistic bad girl on their roster, and the angry avian alien Deathcry provided just that for the Avengers. As the Avengers’ Shi’ar-appointed protector, Deathcry prioritized defending the team from the Kree over all else. Because of this, the warrior never achieved more than just probationary membership with the team—even though she stood by their side for three years.

5. WOLVERINE

New Avengers (2004) #5

New Avengers (2004) #5

What is Marvel Unlimited?

The clawed Canadian called Wolverine might just be the most recognizable X-Man of all time, so rebranding the mutant as one of the new Avengers took a lot of time—and convincing. Wolverine’s on this list mainly because Captain America himself considered Logan to be an unlikely Avenger. He fought Iron Man’s decision to allow Wolverine on the team, pointing out the X-Man’s murder-filled past. Iron Man convinced Cap, and Wolverine’s heroism eventually earned him a seemingly permanent spot on the team.

6. EX NIHILO

Avengers (2012) #17

Avengers (2012) #17

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Sometimes bad guys take the “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” approach. Ex Nihilo made his grand debut as a major threat to the expanded Avengers roster; he threatened to remake the Earth from scratch by destroying everything on it. Then, with the threat of the even more merciless Builders fast approaching, Steve Rogers extended membership to Ex Nihilo and his sister Abyss.

Angel trusts the white-haired fellow so much that he agrees to distract the X-Men for him, playing right into the malicious mystery man’s plan.

The citizens of the Marvel Universe cheered loudly when the Thunderbolts arrived on the scene to fill the void left by the missing Avengers and Fantastic Four. This new team of heroes had catchy codenames like Songbird and Citizen V and even flashier costumes. The Thunderbolts seemed to good to be true—and that turned out to be a correct assessment! On the final page of their debut issue, the team revealed themselves to be the super villain team called the Masters of Evil!

3. Surprise Cap, he’s Bucky!

Captain America got the surprise of his life when he rescued Sharon Carter. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent had seen her captor’s face, and she had recognized it as the exact last person anyone would expect to be back from the dead. Bucky, Cap’s kid sidekick from World War II, had risen from his grave and grown up to be the merciless Russian assassin known only as the Winter Soldier!

4. Surprise, she’s a Skrull!

The New Avengers thought they had their work cut out for them just by tussling with Elektra and an army of Hand ninjas, but their troubles more than tripled after Elektra’s lifeless body hit the ground. The master assassin’s form had shifted into an unmistakable green alien; Elektra had been a Skrull all along. But when did she get replaced? Why did the Skrulls replace her? And who else could be a Skrull? Those questions—and a whole lot more—propelled all of Marvel’s heroes into SECRET INVASION, an event that contains even more big reveals!

5. Surprise, it’s Thunderbolt Ross!

Hulk (2008) #22

Hulk (2008) #22

The Red Hulk’s identity had remained a secret ever since his debut, with fans speculating that everyone from Nick Fury to Steve Rogers had endured exposure to gamma rays to become the all-new anti-hero. This issue of HULK solved the mystery once and for all, though, as the Red Hulk reverted back to his human form—General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross! The Hulk’s greatest antagonist had transformed irrevocably into the very creature he had mercilessly hunted, resulting in one of the most tragic twists in all of Marvel history!
