Thunderbolts: Endgame Zemo's big moment, from Thunderbolts 11

"The High Ground" Thunderbolts 11 (February 1998)
"Endgame" Thunderbolts 12 (March 1998)

Reader Rating: Above Average

Roll Call: Atlas, Baron Zemo, Jolt, MACH-1, Meteorite (Moonstone), Songbird, Techno

Summary: From a satellite hideout, Zemo launches his plans to take over the world using the bio-modem to gain mental control of just about everybody. But a series of turnabouts and betrayals puts the team members at odds with one-another, and in brutal battle with The Avengers and the Fantastic Four.

The Avengers are Captain America, Giant-Man, Hawkeye, Iron Man, the Scarlet Witch, Thor and the Wasp. The Fantastic Four are Mr. Fantastic, the Human Torch, the Invisible Woman and the Thing.

Continuity: The bio-modem was obtained from the Enclave in "Old Scores" (1997/06/02) -- no clue what Zemo's plan was prior to that. This is the final adventure to feature the entire original team. Reasonableness requires that, by this time, Dallas has begun her training as Citizen V. Zemo and Techno go into hiding. Everything changes.

Comments: It is too bad that the premature Return of the Heroes robbed us of further super-team stories. But in shutting down the Big Con, this spectacular is pretty much everything you could hope for in terms of slam-pow artwork, clever plotting and tense confrontations.
