UNTRUSTING OF SUPERHUMANS, MAX FARADAY CAUSES THE RAPTURE
In the Wildstorm Universe, World’s End occurs after Armageddon. Due to the Reaper’s nuclear holocaust, the God-like Max Faraday intervenes. To this end, he causes the Rapture of billions of people from Earth. In reality, he teleports the survivors to St. Louis. There, their routine continues as they are unaware of Armageddon.
At St. Louis, Max is meeting with the WildC.A.T.s and Team 7. Sternly, he blames the disaster on superheroes. Too often, he says, their interference lead to greater threats. For his part, Max plans to remain neutral in the war till all superhumans are erased. When Max senses danger in the South Pacific, he realizes he must intervene.
WITH A REALITY-WARPING CLASH, TAO STEALS MAX’S GODHOOD
In the South Pacific, the terrorist named Tao has threatened Susanna Chaste, Max’s wife. In the nick of time, Max, the WildC.A.T.s and Team 7 teleport on the scene. There, they face Tao and his men. Arduously, the battle rages. Using their reality-warping powers, Max and Tao are matched. Then, Zealot and Kenesha teleport to Hawaii.
There, they enlist Majestic’s help. With the Nemesis Swords – forged in the fires of Creation – Mister Majestic turns the tides. Violently, he pierces Tao’s body. Brutally, Tao is defeated but he has an ace. Before he can be executed, Pit Bull and a goon are holding Max’s wife at gun point. Desperately, Max agrees to reveal the Creation Equation to Tao in order to save her. Dangerously, Tao steals Max’s godhood.
