The last time I saw him at C2E2 in Chicago he had to leave abruptly as he was called to do some courtroom sketches. To see him take off harkened back to newsmen of the 1940s racing off to catch a story. And that’s how I’ll remember him…
Word on the street was that Ulysses Klaue was in Chicago April sixth through the eighth looking to fence a stash of stolen Vibranium. My Command Center for the weekend was at McCormick Place – concurrent to some convention called buy Clomiphene nzC2E2 (whatever that is).
As luck would have it I found an ally.
Enter – alternately The Black Panther!
Unfortunately before we could pool our resources, Doctor Otto Octavius (street name Doctor Octopus) attacked! Thankfully Spider-Man happened on the scene and was able to subdue him before any injuries were incurred.
Derailed on my search for Klaue, I ran into a new formidable adversary… Killmonger!
I’ll add that he was NOT at all happy that I called him “Killraven” by mistake.
The look he gave me after the fact was to die for – literally.
But before Killmonger could wipe that smug look off my face, we were set upon by Galactus, devourer of worlds!
Thinking fast, I made it known to the all-powerful Galactus where the nearest McDonalds was (to satiate his endless hunger) and the threat was over.
But Killmonger had escaped!
I barely had time to catch my breath before running into none other than…
And he had obviously bulked up since our last encounter (something about a heart-shaped herb he ingested – a plant native to Wakanda).
But before he could exact his revenge on me, I was saved by the combined forces of none other than Supergirl and Wonder Woman!
My mind reeling from the licensing and copyright issues of a DC/Warner Brothers & Marvel/Disney crossover, I commandeered the nearest vehicle and made my escape.
