"Godlings and Gladiators" Part 2 of 2. Script by Glenn Herdling. Art by Mike Gustovich (breakdowns) and Tom Palmer (finishes). Cover by Steve Epting and Tom Palmer. In the depths of Lemuria, Lord Ghaur has returned! And with Crystal, Sersi, Hercules, and Captain America under his control, the deviant high priest forms a new uni-mind to steal the Avengers' powers and souls! Meanwhile in the deviants' arena of death, Giant-Man and the Black Knight slug it out with Enigmo, Karkas, Ransak, and Red Bull…not realizing that these estranged deviants are actually here to rescue them! Fortunately though, Hank Pym and Dane Whitman shake off the effects of the deviants' brain mines and rally around Kro and his crew! Can Earth's Mightiest and Kro's finest send Lord Ghaur down to defeat once again? (Notes: Kro and his team of peaceful deviants appear next in Fantastic Four Unlimited 10.
