Marvel Day: In “Enter The Phoenix”, The Thunder God Attempts To End Gladiatorial Combat But Becomes The Son Of A Monster With A Devastating Origin Story

MARVEL DAY

ORIGIN STORIES

THE PHOENIX SHOWS SUPERHEROES’ AND SUPERVILLAINS’ FIGHTS ARE GLADIATORIAL COMBAT

In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #40, Phoenix seeking a host causes gladiatorial combat among superheroes on Earth. The Avengers have located Phoenix rising out of the arctic ice on a volcanic island. Apparently, Phoenix was called to Earth by Namor who seeks to marry her. In fact, the Phoenix has summoned heroes and villains in order to fight each other to claim her as host. “Enter the Phoenix” shows superheroes’ fights are reminiscient of ancient gladiatorial combat.

We begin the first gladiator combat between Captain America and Doctor Doom. The battle is vicious and Doom ultimately gains the upper hand. Doom manages to kill Captain America twice with cosmic blasts, however, aided by the Phoenix, Captain America rises from the ashes to continue fighting. Noticing this as the Phoenix’s testament to Captain America’s valor, Doctor Doom forfeits the battle. Captain America is then transported by Phoenix to the White Hot Room where the other combatants wait their turn.

In 'Avengers' (2020) #40, Phoenix seeks a new host and select heroes and villains to fight in gladiatorial combat.

BLACK PANTHER HAS TO DECIDE TO END THE PHOENIX’S CONTEST

In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #41, the Phoenix continues its gladiatorial combats by selecting combatants from the White Hot Room. We have the following matches: Black Panther vs Man-Thing. Luke Cage vs American Eagle. Shanna The She-Devil vs Moon Girl. Valkyrie (Jane Foster) vs Orb. Hyperion vs Shang-Chi. Red Widow vs Howard The Duck. Black Panther vs Nighthawk. Maya Lopez vs Namor.

In the White Hot Room, the Phoenix speaks to Black Panther in aparte. She tells him to end the contest. Phoenix tells him she knew the old Panther king who fought with glowing rocks but who could end gods. Black Panther promises to end the contest no matter the cost. Phoenix says she wants T’Challa and that she will burn Wakanda’s name across the stars if he agress. Otherwise, she will burn it to ashes. Black Panther refuses and asks Phoenix to become benevolent. Otherwise, he will show Phoenix how he deals with a blizzard.

IN A NEW ORIGIN STORY WITH PHOENIX, THOR BECOMES THE SON OF A MONSTER

In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #42, the Avengers attempt to end Phoenix’s gladiatorial combat. Outside the White Hot Room, on the volcanic island, the Avengers are attempting to contain the Phoenix. The Avengers battle the Phoenix in order to keep her contained in the volcanic island. As the Phoenix is freed, Thor reflects on the link he has shared with the Phoenix time and again. He feels some form of love. She tells him, he is her son. This is the new origin story of Thor and effectively makes him the son of a monster. In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #43, Thor battles his way against Phoenix through his new origin story. The Phoenix finally escapes the volcanic island.

Thor does not believe the lie and tells her Gaia is her mother. He throws his hammer at the Phoenix Force which phases through her. Then, Phoenix Force explains that the lie was necessary for Thor to protect the Earth. She tells the Thunder God is a child of Fire and Thunder. The Avengers are worried about Thor but Iron Man tells Okoye to delay the Wakandan Helicarriers. The Phoenix Force tells Thor, Gaia kept her trapped inside Earth for thousands of years. However, when the final host came, she was free. And now, she remembers Thor. Thor battles Phoenix Force but she soon gains the upper hand. Elsewhere, Captain America is about to face Black Panther in gladiatorial combat.

LUKE CAGE IS A REFORMED GANGSTER

In ‘Hero For Hire’ (1972) #2 , the origin story of Lucas Cage is told.

Having reached adulthood, Luke Cage sought to better himself by finding legitimate employment. He maintained former gang ties and when one of his friends, Stryker, a criminal was hit by the Maggia, Luke saved him. This created a rift with another former gang member Reva who turned to Lucas and broke up with Stryker. Learning this, Stryker planted heroin stolen from Cottonmouth’s place and tipped off the cops. Lucas got arrested for a crime he did not commit and was sentenced to prison.

In prison, Luke was filled with rage over his friend’s betrayal and the supposed loss of his father. He got into brawls and his violent behavior got him transferred to Seagate Prison, one of the toughest prisons.

THE BURNSTEIN PROCESS IS A VARIATION OF THE SUPER-SOLDIER SERUM

At Seagate Prison, Dr. Burnstein was doing medical research on cellular regeneration based on a variant of the Super-Soldier serum. He selected Lucas as a volunteer.

Read on!

He immersed Lucas in the “Electro-Biochemical System“, a device that contained an electrical field conducted by an organic chemical compound. When he left equipment unattended, Rackham tampered with the controls, hoping to kill Lucas. However, the treatment was accelerated past its intended purpose causing mutagenic change throughout Lucas’ body, fortifying his cells giving him superhuman strength and durability. Lucas used his new-found powers to escape the prison and make his way back to Harlem. A chance encounter with criminals inspired him to use his new powers for profit.[10]

Luke Cage (Earth-616)

The Burnstein Process granted Luke Cage superhuman abilities, even greater than Captain America such as superhuman strength (he is able to lift up to 50 tons), a healing factor, nigh-invulnerability and superhuman stamina.

Burstein Process: Luke Cage possesses various superhuman physical enhancements after undergoing a Super-Soldier experiment known as the Burstein Process, which was designed to increase his body’s cellular regeneration rate.

In ‘Uncanny X-Men’ (2012) #12, the Avengers and the X-Men are searching for Hope at Tabula Rasa.

Cyclops sends Sunspot, Namor and Hepzibah to Tabula Rasa, while the Avengers send Thing, Luke Cage and She-Hulk.

The Avengers stumble upon a cave, investigate and are attacked by creatures. Meanwhile, the X-Men and the Queen also investigate. Then, Namor discovers Luke Cage and a battle ensues.

Namor attacks Luke Cage with an airborne piledriver then tosses Luke into the river. Using the Burnstein Process, Luke Cage holds his breath underwater. Noting that Luke can’t breathe nor speak, Namor says Luke Cage is weakening. Then, Luke Cage draws a punch. Namor exclaims “Imperius Rex” and responds with a devastating punch that creates a wave out of the water.1

Then, Namor knocks out both She-Hulk and Luke Cage by using Luke Cage as a bludgeon.
