This week's cover features Rune, the Ultraverse character appearing in Protectors of the Universe #10, as the Protectors of the Universe maxi-series comes closer to an end.

We also have more Marvel/DC crossover fun this week with The Last Herald of Galactus #2, an Elseworlds story featuring Superman as the Herald of Galactus.  This issue explains just how Kal-El got to where he is today!

Then check out Batman/Warlock: Soul Brothers #2.  This week's edition featuring the Batman against a familiar foe, and tying into another Shards of Destiny story from the past, Dark Allies, with appearances by Mephisto and DC's Neron!

Mephisto also appears in our Silver Surfer story Tainting Eden Chapter 3.  In this issue, the Silver Surfer learns why he has been called back to Elysia and who is behind the transformation of the planet.  It has been awhile since we have featured Tainting Eden, but do not worry - this issue has links to past editions if you need to catch up!

This week we also focus on Midnight Sun, a character we have not turned our attention to in quite a while.  Matt Hamilton writes another story featuring the silent hero in Midnight Sun: Monbulk's Monopoly #1 of 2.

This week also sees a short finale to The More Things Change... The More They Stay The Same, while bringing the first chapter of the second part to the Twilight War sequel War Waged At The Stroke of Midnight, titled Longest Night.  Our original fiction storyline, War of the Blood Gods, continues this week, as strange events continue to plague the earth that are somehow linked to Mars!

All in this issue of Cosmic Powers Unlimited!  Now, please be sure and send us your feedback to all the stories at!  Our writers really appreciate your questions, comments, suggestions, and feedback.  Thanks and enjoy!

Malevolence is exposed, but will Jack of Hearts become her consort anyway? Starhawk unwittingly holds the key to the aperture between Universes, and Rune will stop at nothing to abduct him! And Starglow is approaching critical mass... just as her teammates suffer from the Hunger of Galactus once more!
