Click here to enlarge!Welcome to issue #43 of Cosmic Powers Unlimited, the final issue of our biweekly fan fiction webzine in the year 2000!  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 heralds of Galactus, the Powers Cosmic, as they assemble together to honor the death of their former master, Galactus.  But the Powers Cosmic and the Shi'ar Empire have two very different fates in store for the star which replaced the World Devourer.

We also have a special Thanos: Dead Men Tell No Tales, as a few Elders pay special attention to a Titan's birth in a story which slightly resembles a certain Christmas story. Thanos also stars in a new edition of the hilarious parody, Drunk Thanos.

We also have a couple of DC stories for you.  First in the DC Universe's 853rd Century, we have Chapter 2 of DC One Million: "End Times."  Then check out the first part of Fred Walker's screenplay to Superman V, where the Superman of the movie continuity meets up with Doomsday!

We also have the final conclusion to our Twilight War sequel War Waged At The Strike of Midnight in Cosmic Powers Unlimited #43!  All this plus a new cover by Caleb featuring Eternity, Death, 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!
