    Default Last Decade in Marvel primer

    since BuHckweat and Kirby were curious here's a bit of a run down/review by me of what's been happening in the Marvel universe.

    Late 90's to early 2000's they did away with the Avengers. The Scarlet Witch, member of the Avengers and mutant who had minor reality altering powers, unexplicably gets a big power up. She's temporarily insane over several things that have happened over the years, such as her twin children dying (turns out they didn't...not exactly anyways) Through a series of bizzare events, the Avengers lose several members to death, and after major tragedy after major tragedy the Avengers officially disband.

    Scarlet Witch...still crazy gets convinced by her brother, the mutant Quicksilver that she should Fix the world. Make it so mutants had their Rightful Place. The House of M storyline begins across all Marvel Books. Suddenly history is different, mutants rule the world, with the House of Magneto being the premier ruling class. No one realizes that it's not supposed to be that way... at first. Eventually a few people figure things out, eventually the Scarlet Witch is confronted, puts things back to normal and says "No More Mutants" before disappearing...seemingly for good.

    World is restored with some changes. Wolverine now has his memory back after never having had it in the history of marvel. All but 199 mutants suddenly lose their powers.

    Time passes, stuff happens.

    There is a major breakout at the Super Villain Prison: The Raft. Several Heroes come together unwittingly to mitigate the damage done. They form a New Avengers. Cap, Iron Man, Luke Cage, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, mystery person Ronin (It was supposed to be Daredevil, but everyone guessed that so they changed it at the last minute in one of the bigger dick moves in comics history)

    A group of Heroes: The New Warriors, have a reality T.V. show where they hunt down criminals. During a super battle with a bunch of nobodies and another nobody named Nitro (whose power is that he can explode), Nitro Does explode (more powerful than anyone has ever seen him do), destroying a school filled with children and killing most of the New Warriors off. Public Outcry is Massive.

    The Government begins to make move to put a Superhuman Registration Act in place. Initially most heroes oppose it. The Act would require anyone with pwoers to register with the government and have their identities made public. S.H.I.E.L.D. head Maria Hill demands that Captain America hunt down anyone who won't register. Cap has obvious reservations and Maria Hill orders SHIELD agents to shoot him. Cap Escapes and goes underground to fight the SHRA.

    Iron Man (dick), Reed Richards (dick) and Hank Pym (normally dick but actually a Skrull) decide to support the act. Marvel Civil War begins.

    Type up more in a bit.

    So at some point, Iron Man, Reed Richards, and a few other dicks decide that the Hulk is too dangerous to be on Earth. They trick him into helping stop a rogue ai satelite, and then shoot him into space, intending his rockets destination to be a peaceful planet with no sentient life. Things go wrong and he winds up on another planet. Planet Hulk story begins and he rises from slave to gladiator to rebel, eventually becoming King of the planet. At last the Hulk has found peace. Then the ship they put him on explodes, cracking the planets major faultline. The planet begins to fall apart, many die, including Hulk's new wife. Leading his people in a new spaceship, he heads toward Earth looking for Revenge.

    Meanwhile, the superheroes split amongst Pro Registration and Anti Registration. At Iron Man's urging, Spider-man joins the Pro-regs and unmasks publicly. Super Heroes fight each other... a lot. In the end Captain America surrenders (because Mark Millar is a douchebag and an idiot and doesn;t know hwo to write),the Anti-Regs lose. Captain America is assassinated by the Red Skull in an overtly complex plot.

    Oh Reed Richards also made a prison in another dimension to put anyone who disagreed with them. Reed, Ant-mAn (skrull mind you) and Tony Stark make a clone cyborg version of Thor. Aunt May is shot and killed because...well because Spider-Man publicly unmasked. The President makes Tony Stark head of SHIELD and in charge of all superheroes.

    Norman Osborne (you may know him as The GREEN FUCKING GOBLIN) is put in charge of a team of super powered individuals named the Thunderbolts... Most of them are villains and have potentially lethal nanites put in them to ensure obedience. Their job: Hunt down and beat the shit out of anyone with powers who doesn't want to become a government slave.

    Governments are stupid.

    So with Aunt May dead, Spider-man makes a deal with Satan. in return for Aunt May's life,his marriage to Mary Jane will be erased, in addition to anyone's knowledge of him being Spider-man. (In a story so terrible that it is universally panned and they don't speak of it anymore)

    Oh when the Avengers reformed, they found... The Sentry. Basically Superman (only more powerful) the Sentry is amazing...except he's incredibly neurotic, afraid to even walk outside his home some days... oh and he also has a kind of split personality called the Void that is also his arch enemy. I Hate the Sentry. (He also worked for the Pro Reg side.)

    So.. the Hulk returns to Earth, wages war on America and pretty much wins. Eventually he finds out that his enemies on the other planet planted the bomb, not Iron Man... and his best friend from the planet new about it but wouldn't tell him because if they stopped the explosion, the Hulk might get soft. He's eventually defeated and his alien allies put in concentration camps.

    There are two teams of Avengers post Civil War... the New Avengers (most of the team from when they had just started back up... minus Iron MAn) who were on the run and still fighting the allready passed and put into action SHRA. and The Might Avengers..which had Iron Man and Sentry and was obnoxious.

    Oh yeah... turns out Captain America's old sidekick who has been dead in the comic books for over 60 years wasn;t really dead. He became the New Captain America and joined the on the run New Avengers.

    Reed and Tony continue with their plan to fix everything. They start by putting a Super Hero team in every state (they miss a few... like Mississippi! ) Norman Osborne gains more political clout.

    The real Thor returns after being dead several years... and restores Asgard... in Oklahoma. Iron Man shows up to make him register. Thor changes his mind... by beating the shit out of him.

    Remember when I mentioned the Ant-Man/Hank Pym was actually a Skrull? Turns out there were a lot of them and they have been orchestrating events for several years in order to Invade Earth. In fact all those nifty Teams in Every State...has at least One Skrull on it.

    The Skrulls invade and things look bad. Tony Stark gets his ass whipped. New Captain America, Thor and the New Avengers team up with everyone else and start to turn the tide. Things are looking up.

    Norman Osborne kills the Queen of the Skrulls with a bullet to the head and is officially the savior of the planet. Obama fires Tony Stark and puts Norman Osborne (THE FUCKING GREEN GOBLIN) in charge of all the worlds superheroes... The NEw Avengers are on the run again, the Mighty Avengers disband...and The Sentry decides that Norman Osborne is his protector and Mentor.

    Osborne puts together a group of individuals who secretly decide what to do about the world's problems: Emma Frost, Osborne, Dr. Doom, Namor, and Loki... he laters adds the Hood (A two bit supervillain and Peter parker's cousin)

    Loki begins to subtly manipulate everything. A New Might Avengers forms..separate from the Government (they're led by Hank Pym, the real one who had been captured by Skrulls) the New Avengers are still fighting evil, still on the run.

    Norman Osborne puts his own team of Avengers together... The Iron Patriot (actually norman osborne in a reverse engineered Iron Man armor painted Red White and Blue) Hawkeye (actually the super murderer Bullseye in a Hawkeye costume) Miss Marvell (Actually villainess powered psychiatrist Moonstone in a Miss Marvel costume) Spider-Man (actually Venom.) Wolverine (actually Wolverine's psychotic son Daken in a Wolverine Costume) and The Sentry (actually the Sentry but he's still batshit crazy)

    stuff happens. More in a bit!

    Eventually Loki convinces Osborne that he needs to invade Asgard (they are illegally hovering above American Soil after all)

    Meanwhile...remember that Captain America assassination? Well the Red Skull's plot was very complicated involving puting Cap's spirit/mind/soul whatever trapped in the past, reliving his worst moments, while the Red Skull took over his body and made a triumphant return as Captain America... the plan got messed up, Cap got unstuck and came back. Woo! Cap's Back...

    well he gathers up the world's real heroes and they battle Osborne and his bad guys at Asgard (whic the Sentry destroyed) Osborne is beaten, but not before the Sentry loses his shit completely and becomes the Void again. Big battle, Loki sacrifices himself to help (sort of) and Thor kills the shit out of the Sentry. Finally. Obama says that maybe he made a mistake and puts Steve Rogers (the REAL Captain America for those of you not in the know) in charge of the world's Superheroes.

    Oh yeah... the x-men fight some vampries.

    Ah that's Nick Fury. In the main Marvel Universe he's white. In the Ultimate Universe he was black, and in the movieverse he's black. Traditionally he's the leader of SHIELD. His storyline differs depending on what version youre talking about. but in the movies head head of SHIELD and is recruiting the heroes to start up the Avengers.
