SUPER-SKRULL VS. MS. MARVEL! Ever since the Skrull homeworld was destroyed, Emperor Kl’rt has been out for revenge. And with a device that will turn Earth into a new Skrull kingdom, he’s about to get it. All he needs is the DNA of one very special shape-shifter. The Super-Skrull is coming for Kamala Khan – and with all the powers of the Fantastic Four on his side, Ms. Marvel doesn’t stand a chance.
While the status of Dracula the vampire nation might have been the focus of the “War of the Vampires” storyline that ran in Avengers #13-17, there was something else that stood out. The return of Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider! Blaze is still reigning as the King of Hell, who took over in Damnation, and we’ll see more of this role in “The Challenge of the Ghost Riders” this September.
In Avengers #16 we saw current Ghost Rider Robbie Reye stuck in traffic in the depths of hell. A mysterious character was talking to him and teasing the difficulty he’d be facing. The last page of the issue featured Blaze sitting on his bike and leaving Reyes with a warning their story would intertwine once more.
You’ll be back. And the King of Hell will be here waiting. And next time I see you, Ghost Rider, you and me… we’re gonna do a bit more than just talk. We’re gonna have us a little ride.
– Johnny Blaze aka Ghost Rider – Avengers #16
The next chapter for Johnny Blaze and Ghost Rider begins this September. Find “The Challenge of the Ghost Riders” in Avengers #24.

Looks like trouble for our hero, Spider-Man, also known as Kamala Khan. Er…wait. We mean Ms. Marvel, also known as Peter Parker. Dang, that’s not right either. Peter Khan? Kamala Parker? Well, whoever it is, this duo isn’t feeling so dynamic at the moment, and they need to work it out fast.
