Red Skull #1-3

Post by Col_Fury » Mon Jul 24, 2017 2:50 am

RED SKULL #1 (September 2015)
By Joshua Williamson & Luca Pizzari

APPEARANCES:
Electro (M. Dillon) (Killville Domain)
Magneto (M. Eisenhardt)
Moonstone (K. Sofen)
Jack O’Lantern
Lady Deathstrike
Winter Soldier (James “Bucky” Barnes), Crossbones (also in fb), Red Skull
Abigail Brand (from the Shield, in fb)
America Chavez (from the Shield, in fb)
Shield/Thing/Ben Grimm (also in fb)
Frog Thor, Thunderstrike Thor, a bearded Thor (all in fb)
Doctor Strange (616, in fb), Doctor Doom (616, in fb)
Various zombies (see NOTE)

FLASHBACKS:
Stories of the Red Skull’s defiance against Doom have inspired pockets of rebellion, and Doom wants that squashed. He tasks Strange with taking care of it. Strange hires Crossbones to take care of it.
SYNOPSIS:
Crossbones recruits a team to find proof of Red Skull’s death. They travel to the Deadlands and most of the team is immediately killed by zombies. Red Skull arrives and saves Magneto.

NOTE:
The flashback where America & Abigail Brand appear has to happen at least after A-Force #1, where America is sent to the Shield. Our map has Red Skull before that, so we’ll need to adjust.

The Deadlands are populated by zombies of characters from different Domains. There’s no way to tell which is from where, so they’re essentially the nameless horde for our purposes.

Crossbones and Winter Soldier both have history with this Red Skull, and are likely all from the same Domain/reality. There’s already a Winter Soldier from Doomstadt and Killville, so it’s not either of those.

It’s unclear where some of Crossbones’ recruits are from. Magneto tore down a Doom statue in Mutopia, but he’s not from there (more on him next issue). Jack O’Lantern blew up a building in Doomstadt, but that doesn’t mean he’s from there (he could be, though). No clues for Moonstone or Lady Deathstrike, but the latter’s description makes it sounds like she’s from Killville.

RED SKULL #2 (October 2015)
By Joshua Williamson & Luca Pizzari

APPEARANCES:
Red Skull, Winter Soldier (corpse)
Magneto (also in fb), Rogue (in fb), Gambit (in fb)
Annihilus (New Xandar)

FLASHBACK:
Magneto’s world is destroyed in an incursion.
SYNOPSIS:
Red Skull tries to recruit Magneto in his plot to overthrow Doom, tempting him with a way to restore Magneto’s powers. They travel to New Xandar and meet with Annihilus, who the Red Skull wants to provide an army to him. Magneto’s powers are restored and Red Skull feels his plans are coming together.

NOTE:
Magneto’s world (or at least the few characters we see from it) are similar to the versions seen in Age of X. However, Rogue was called “Legacy” there, and she’s called “Rogue” here. So not the same, but similar (not that it could have been the same anyway, Age of X was a distorted 616).

RED SKULL #3 (November 2015)
By Joshua Williamson & Luca Pizzari

APPEARANCES:
Red Skull, Crossbones
Magneto
Abigail Brand
Shield/Thing/Ben Grimm

SYNOPSIS:
Red Skull, Magneto and the Annihilation Wave attack the Shield, but fail in tearing it down. Red Skull kills Magneto and escapes, but is killed by Crossbones. Oops.

Chronologies! (again, I’m skipping the Thors for now)
