They'd done it with Adam Osidis' help.

He went along with them as they took the King off to the end they had planned for him.

One night, playing cards, one of them avowed himself a killer of those who'd listened to the King.

That provoked Adam. )

Adam Osidis, addressed by one of the Mosak who'd come for the Mud King, thought back.

He remembered his brother Peter's death, long ago.

He remembered his mother passing him a nail made from Pete's blood, giving him advice.

" A reed must grow straight while it's still green, Adam.

" And once it has it must choose how to weather the hard winds..

The present and the past contextualized each other. )

He'd come in response to a summons.

He remembered when he'd first learned about the Mud King.

His father Zebadiah'd told him history, about Garlis Sulm and his power to " bond with other spirits. "

" But they had to choose to let him in.

" So he'd offer 'em their hearts' desire to ensure they did.

" But once they accepted- he'd be with 'em forever.

" Enablin' him to see what they saw. To hear what they heard. "

Garlis'd made an offer to him.

" Guess I was the only one to decline hearin' his bargain.

" Made him awful mad. "

Zebediah'd exhaled. )

Seven to Eternity's first arc started in 2016.

In the Voltk Mountains, the family Osidis lived away from the rest of the world.

Storm clouds came to them one day.

Unnatural lightning came out of the sky, annihilating their barn and house.

The head of the family, Zebadiah, knew what was coming.

It was what they'd taken themselves away from. )

About a month ago, I really wanted to post a scene from Uncanny Avengers where Thor and Wasp had to face Sentry ressurected as a horseman of death. Sadly, four pages have already been posted and the scene was way too long, so I scrapped it. However, after I was reminded of Fallen Son, I decided to post the last two pages of it anyway to feel better.

"Well, it's a strange time, isn't it? Things seem a bit bleak currently. It seems the forces of good are losing to corporate greed and ignorance and people have that in their minds, so seeing a band of heroes dealing with a very dismal and hopeless situation might just strike a chord in readers who can identify with the feeling of being overwhelmed by resolute forces.

It's also a timeless superhero staple, the last heroes up against the dark hopeless future. Day of Future Past was my favorite X-Men tale so that feeds into this a good bit as well."

"Call me a pessimist, but in my mind had we superhumans among us the world would surely be reduced to a wasteland within months. I'm not a big believer in the good of humanity. Sure the current doom and gloom around us plays heavily into my bleak worldview but this mindset isn't a new one for me. I don't see much altruism in the average man's heart and never have. It's just not in our reptilian/monkey brain programming. It's all about me-me-me for the average Joe. Everyone has an agenda, and most everyone has a selfish motivation behind his or her actions. If you randomly bestow superpowers on our population you'd give these flawed minds the power to inflict their agenda on the world. There are few among us who would stand up to the task of managing the great responsibility that comes with this great power. Sure, there would be pure-hearted and ethical men and women who would try to sway this; I believe the sheer numbers of the corrupted would overwhelm them . . . and this realization gave birth to the world of The End League."

Somber describes the lives of those he writes on their best days.

There was a bit at the end of his Captain America #25 that was a bit lighter, perhaps because it was after the fact that the run'd been building up to.

Heroes were gathering at Avengers Mansion for what Rogue'd heard was something of a celebration.

" And after everything we've been through, we sure as hell need one. "

They did. It was. )

It was taken over by a couple of their enemies.

So were some of them and Captain America.

Steve Rogers took his mind back and took down the guy who'd taken him.

One of them was still standing.

He moved on. )
