One year after receiving the power of the Zodiac, Steven Lee and his teammates have started to master their abilities. But when his team seems to be falling apart, Steven has to find a way to be a leader, before there isn't a team to lead anymore. Meanwhile, the power-mad Maxwell and his Vanguard have returned and are planning their next move! With allegiances shifting around him and the line between "good guys" and "bad guys" becoming blurrier and blurrier, Steven must figure out whom he can really trust-before it's too late!
Steven Lee always thought that having superpowers would make him happy, make life easier, and make everything more fun. He was wrong. Steven, now 16 years old, has spent years living with the power of the Tiger. But now, on the edge of a catastrophe that could destroy not only Steven and his super powered friends, but every Zodiac in the world, Steven will have to decide just how far he'll go to protect those closest to him. Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, and Andie Tong bring the earth-shaking conclusion to The Zodiac Legacy!
Beginning with a novella by Spider-Man's co-creator Stan Lee and veteran Marvel writer Peter David retelling the wall-crawler's origin, this exciting anthology has original stories featuring one of the world's most enduring heroes.
From Tom De Haven and Dean Wesley Smith's look at Spidey's early career to David Michelinie's portrait of a dying reporter who wants his last story to be the revelation of Spider-Man's true identity and Lawrence Watt-Evan's tale of a boy whose web-slinging hero-worship leads to tragedy—plus stories by Craig Shaw Gardner, Richard Lee Byers, Ann Nocenti, and many more—here are spectacular Spider-Man adventures!
This gripping anthology has over a dozen original tales starring the top-selling mutant heroes, the uncanny X-Men, dealing with their greatest foes as well as the day-to-day trials of being mutants—trying to protect the world they've sworn to protect, a world that hates them for what they are!
From eluki bes shahar's story of the X-Men's fight against a mutant who can alter reality to Dave Smeds's look at what would have happened if the X-Men never were, from Ashley McConnell's chronicle of Wolverine's trek across the frozen tundra to Dean Wesley Smith's tale of Gambit in his hometown of New Orleans, and much more—these are spectacular tales of mutant adventure!
Of course it's stupendous. It's ol' Spidey himself in his first — yes, first — full-length novel.
When a baddie drops out of a sky-high window (Did he jump — heh heh — or was he pushed?), Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson wants Spider-Man to take the rap. Has the wall-crawler come to the end of his rope? Does his life hang by a slender thread?
To swing clear of this one, he's got to snoop on an international oil conference. There's blackmail! Radioactivity! And a welcoming committee of death-dealing arch-villains!
Who's behind it all? Think hard, ‘cause we're not telling. But it just might be that too much tendril looms large in Spider's formidable future!
