NEW TEAM REVEALED!
At last year’s gala, mutants changed the face of the solar system, terraforming Mars and claiming it for mutantkind. Do you think you can afford to miss this year’s gala, all contained in this one over-sized issue!?
72 PGS.ONE-SHOT/Rated T+ …$7.99
The world now knows that mutants can be resurrected through The Five and the mutant Resurrection Protocol.
Cyclops revealed all to reporter Ben Urich and the super-heroes of the Marvel Universe are intrigued by the news.
We then get to see what’s next for Moira McTaggert after she kidnapped Mary Jane Watson, yes THAT MJ from Amazing Spider-Man lore, in the FCBD 2022 Judgment Day issue (full spoilers here).
The Five are being protected by Magick as the Quiet Council thinks that some may come to them harm over the revelation that mutants have found a way to cheat death.
Moira McTaggert has MJ in her thrall and Emma Frost is none the wiser as…
…the Hellfire Gala 2022 begins.
Emma Frost says no to the new Doctor Strange hoping to resurrection her husband predecessor.
The Amazing Spider-Man connects with both Mary Jane Watson and Doctor Doom and neither exchange goes well for the wallcrawler.
The Five actually join the festivities with their protector Magick in tow.
That is when Moira as MJ makes her move on Egg of the Five.
Spider-Man sees them chatting and…
…chooses the wrong side the skirmish not knowing that MJ is being controlled by Moira.
All becomes clear and…
…the rest of The Five have Egg’s back…
…as do Wolverine and the mutants in attendance at the Hellfire Gala.
Wolverine understands Spider-Man wants MJ freed from Moira’s control and Wolverine will help to get that done, but the right way…
…a way that is perhaps slower and continues in Amazing Spider-Man #9 in stores September 14, 2022.

HELLFIRE GALA TIE-IN!
Something happens at the Hellfire Gala that sends Spider-Man and WOLVERINE on a dangerous mission all over creation!
That’s right — the best duo in comics is back, but who are they fighting, and what (or who) are they fighting for? NO SPOILERS HERE!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99
The Hellfire Gala one-shot continues with Emma Frost, still upset with Cyclops over spilling the beans over the Immortal X-Men, so she tells him the sordid truth behind Charles Xavier / Professor X and Magneto’s timeline scheming and Moira McTaggert’s complicity and conflict over it.
We get to see a new X-Men team form, to anchor the adjectiveless X-Men series, as is the new Marvel tradition.
Forge will be deterred from his Project Blackbox duties, whatever that is, with his new role on the core X-Men team.
We then see Moira McTaggert meet with the Druig of the Eternals.
That story continues in AXE: Judgment Day #1 (full spoilers here) which is already on stands.
Fantastic Four #45 Spoilers follow.
FANTASTIC FOUR #45

The Reckoning War: Epilogue — “Open Your Eyes”!
Following the explosive events of the Reckoning War, the Marvel Universe has changed. We told you this was important. To see where all the pieces have fallen and what lies ahead, you’re going to want to read this one, Marvelite. The future awaits!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99
Well, through cosmic actions the good guys have thwarted the threat.
There is now one super Watcher in the form of Uatu.
He can watch no more, but in this case he will rectify.
He “fixed” what the Watchers had done before known time and what the Reckoning did in response.
Mister Fantastic no longer is being consumed by the cosmic knowledge which irritates his brother-in-law the Human Torch who hoped for a cure for what ails him which was in Mister Fantastic’s grasp earlier.
A future disaster like the Reckoning War will be prevented in part by the Cormorant.
The Fantastic Four go through the Forever gate and reunite with their rest of their family.
The kids are now safe and can, hopefully, just be kids again.
The Watcher actually fixes the moon to add a bow on the Reckoning War saga as well as sets up Nick Fury Sr. well for his work ahead.
The book ends with an jealous Doctor Doom wanting his own Forever Gate?!
Next up is Fantastic Four #46!
