Click here to enlarge!Welcome to issue #42 of Cosmic Powers Unlimited, our biweekly fan fiction webzine.  If you are not familiar with Cosmic Powers Unlimited or would like to go back and read past editions and stories, go to our CPU Archive Page.

This week's issue of Cosmic Powers Unlimited features the beginning of a new story starring the Powers Cosmic, composed of former heralds of Galactus, as they return to the World Devourer's demise in Marvel continuity.

We also have the end of two of our stories.  First in the Marvel/DC crossover Cosmic Treasure Hunt, as the fate of the Infinity Gems is decided, and then in our original fan fiction saga War of the Blood Gods.

Don't worry, though, we also have a new chapter of Thanos: Dead Men Tell No Tales, guest written by Mystic of Cosmic Treasure Hunt, another edition of our cosmic parody Drunk Thanos, and the continuation of our Twilight War sequel War Waged At The Strike of Midnight.

All this plus a new cover by Caleb, featuring Silver Surfer, Firelord, Plasma, Terrax, and Galactus!  

And 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!
