Now that nefarious blade has returned, in the hands of Thor's all-time greatest enemy - his brother, Loki - for one final, cataclysmic showdown. Behold the book no comics fan should miss - the celebration of the end of a truly Marvelous era.

Leviathan has dismantled S.H.A.D.E.-and that means Frankenstein is once again a free agent! Now he can set his sights on his former mentor, Melmoth, the one evil that got away. With bad things happening all across the Multiverse, this may be Frankenstein's last shot at setting things right.
Of course, Melmoth has his own agenda, and it's going to take more than a lone monster to take him down. So Frankenstein heads to Gotham City in search of allies and recruits Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca and vampire Andrew Bennett.
