Parnival tricked Ka-Zar into believing he had learned more about their father's inheritance and lured his brother to New York by hiring Kraven the Hunter's teacher Gregor to torment and attack Ka-Zar and his family. This would then lead Ka-Zar and Shanna to seek him out in New York and confront him for his actions, leading Parnival to send the Rhino after them to keep them busy.

Thanos began to loose his new power now that he was no longer connected to the terraformer, Ka-Zar destroyed the medallion which featured a map of how to traverse its maze, so that Thanos couldn't return and empower himself again. Thanos entered the terraformer to try and regain his power and S.H.I.E.L.D. atomized it with him inside, returning the Savage Land to it's usual jungle paradise but also passing its power into Shanna. The people of the Savage Land lost faith in Ka-Zar and Shanna took over as Queen with her new powers over the earth and animals, which left Ka-Zar feeling out of place and jealous. Ka-Zar worried what it would mean to have the power contained in a single person and how that would skew her perspectives, he also worried that if Shanna died then the Savage Land most likely would as well. The High Evolutionary had come to the Savage Land and Ka-Zar approached him to build a new terraformer.
Baron Wolfgang von Strucker used A.I.M. to develop advanced technological weaponry for his secret subversive organization, Hydra. Although Hydra suffered a major defeat, it continued to exist secretly over the following decades, continually growing and building in strength. The group of scientists grew in number over the years, and made great advances in various fields: robotics, bio-engineering, bionics, and physics. Eventually the scientists publicly incorporated their organization under the name of Advanced Idea Mechanics. A.I.M. or Hydra's goals and activities were subversive and kept secret. Hydra's existence remained unknown for a time. A.I.M. was believed by both the public and by intelligence organizations to be an international cartel dealing with the development and marketing of new technological products. A.I.M. gained great influence with the U.S. government in its role as a supplier of hardware and weaponry to governmental and quasi-governmental agencies.

For the majority of Doctor Strange 2's runtime, the new character that receives the biggest spotlight is America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez). Her unique multiverse-traveling powers put a target on America's back, as Scarlet Witch wants to use them to be reunited with her children in a different universe. It all builds to Scarlet Witch abducting America Chavez through the multiverse and fighting a zombie Doctor Strange at Mount Wundagore. Doctor Strange 2's ending has lasting implications for the MCU, too, as Marvel Studios sets up multiple Phase 4 movies and TV shows by the time the story wraps up.
Settling into the Savage Land, Magneto gained power in the prehistoric region by building an army of Savage Land Mutates. Coming to be known as the Master, Magneto sought to conquer the world. Fearing the impact and influence he could gain if allowed to continue creating his mutates, Ka-Zar worked with the mutant heroes in X-Men #62 & #63 by Roy Thomas and Neal Adams to challenge the villain. The group was able to overwhelm the mutates and destroy the machines creating the Mutates. Magneto seemingly perished in the ensuing fires -- only to survive by falling through the collapsing floor. He eventually came up against the Fantastic Four in Fantastic Four #102 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
In the build-up to Secret Wars, the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe tried many different things to stave off the final Incursion that would effectively end the Marvel Multiverse. As Earth-1610 (the Ultimate Universe) approached the core-Marvel Universe of Earth-616, Magneto did his best to save the world in Magneto #18-#19 by Cullen Bunn and Paul Davidson. As he revealed to his daughter Polaris, Magneto intended to use as much power as he could from the Earth itself in a bid to destroy the other Earth before it wiped out his world. But despite his best efforts, Magneto was overwhelmed and unable to destroy the other world before the Incursion completed -- resulting in the deaths of Magneto and everyone else on the planet. Following the reconstruction of the multiverse after Secret Wars, Magneto was revived.
Nabopolassar had defeated the Assyrians with the help of the Medes and liberated Babylonia from Assyrian rule. He then continued his conquest of the region and so provided for his son a stable base and ample wealth on which to build; an opportunity for greatness which Nebuchadnezzar took full advantage of in the same way that Alexander the Great (r. 336-323 BCE) would later capitalize on the treasury and standing army left him by his father Philip II of Macedon (r. 359-336 BCE).
Nabopolassar had formed his empire through conquest by 616 BCE and Nebuchadnezzar II drew on these resources to strengthen and enlarge his armed forces as well as engage in building projects. He absorbed all of the former regions of the Assyrian Empire and crushed whatever resistance was offered. In 598/597 BCE he marched on the Kingdom of Judah in Canaan and lay siege to its capital city of Jerusalem, sending the elite citizens of the city back to Babylon, a period known as the Babylonian Captivity.
He then engaged in monumental building projects which renovated and refurbished thirteen of his cities completely but he put the greatest effort into the most famous: Babylon. Scholar Susan Wise Bauer comments:
He had his own position as great king to establish and maintain and he set out to do this as Mesopotamian kings had done for two thousand years: he started to build. His own inscriptions record the restoration and addition of temple after temple in Babylon itself. Babylon was the home of the god Marduk and Nebuchadnezzar's devotion to Marduk was also a celebration of Babylonian triumph. (447)
An important part of his restoration project was rebuilding the great ziggurat known as Etemenanki ("the foundation of heaven and earth") which had been destroyed by the Assyrian king Sennacherib (r. 705-681 BCE) along with the rest of Babylon. Rebuilding began under Sennacherib's son, Esarhaddon (r. 681-669 BCE), under Nabopolassar, and was completed by Nebuchadnezzar II. The Etemenanki, with its great rising tower, is thought to be the inspiration for the biblical Tower of Babel.

He was a timid fifteen-year-old Midtown student who was bitten by a radioactive spider, which gave him superhuman spider-powers and abilities similar to the arachnid spider such as superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, stamina, durability, wall-crawling ability, and detecting any upcoming danger and threats called "spider-sense", he also builds his equipment that resembles spider-webbing on his left and right wrist called "web-shooters" as his primary weapon, which allows him to web-swing across the city at high speeds, trap his enemies, and shoot at his foes like a web-bullets. Using his powers initially to help his Uncle Ben Parker and Aunt May Parker, Peter allowed his fame to get over his head until the death of his uncle. After his death, Peter vowed to use his "great" powers to protect the people of New York against crime, and later other threats, having learned the most valuable lesson "with great power, there must also come great responsibility". Since his debut as a superhero, Spider-Man has gained friends and foes but has also dealt with the ups and downs of life. 350c69d7ab
