We are devoting all of this issue to the conclusion of our flagship title, Cosmic Union. The Cosmic Union Saga, written by posters from the Silver Surfer Message Board, sparked the creation of the Cosmic Powers Unlimited fan fiction webzine back in September of 1999. This week, we bring you the final two editions of the Cosmic Union Saga, as well as a special alternate ending!

The Cosmic Union also sparked new titles based on the continuity started in it. Several teams, known together as the Protectors of the Universe, were created from the aftermath of the Cosmic Union. These teams include the primary teams of the Powers Cosmic, Spinsterhood, and Star Masters, as well as the Timeless and the Defenders. This week, we also bring you the conclusion of our first Protectors of the Universe (POTU) teams' story-arch, brought to you in Protectors of the Universe #1 and continuing from Powers Cosmic #5, Star Masters #5, and Spinsterhood #5.

Also, we have a brand new Super-Skrull story! And last, but not least, we have issue #2 of the POTU's newest team, the Defenders!

All the above, plus a new cover by Caleb starring all the Cosmic Union characters and some of your feedback, in our special Cosmic Union Special! (Speaking of feedback… keep it coming! E-mail your comments to

With nine contributors, Cosmic Union was surprisingly coherent in its direction. Still, at its culmination, one author envisioned an entirely different resolution, one no less valid than the ending to the saga presented in Cosmic Union #20 & 21. Here for the first time is Asterisk's divergent ending to the Cosmic Union!
