It’s here! Finally! The end to an epic story detailing a gripping drama played out upon the last, life sustaining remnants of multiversal structure! The Universe – the Multiverse – is no more! All that remains is a patchwork planetoid held together by the will and divinity of god-emperor Doom!

Can he continue to deny himself, and his citizens, the truth of of what existed before his divine restructuring, regardless of his greatest foe knocking upon the gates of Doomstadt?? Find out here, in an epic tale that weaves together the final threads of Jonathan Hickman’s historic narrative that began in the pages of Fantastic Four, continued in the Avengers, and ended with the destruction of all that came before!
