When come the Gatherers. First, the machinations of Hera and Ares pit Hercules against Thor! A visit from the Starjammers and the X-Men proves painful for the Black Knight and so do his feelings for Crystal and Sersi and the demonic return of a classic villain teaches the Avengers to fear the Grim Reaper not to mention his shambling Legion of the Unliving. Then, the Gatherers Proctor, Magdalene and the Swordsman, plus Sloth and Cassandra attack at last. But what is the secret behind their dastardly plan and why is their next target the Black Panther.
