Synopsis for "Midnight Sons, part 1"
Simon Garth escaped A.R.M.O.R.'s HQ along with Zombie Deadpool's head. They teleported to the bottom of the sea, where they met the Men-Fish, and spread the Zombie contagion to them. The Men-Fish attacked the S. S. Tranquility, killing most of the crew, and the new team, The Midnight Sons, were called in to track the virus and cure it. While they deal with a zombified Piranha, Garth and Wilson continue on their way, meeting up with Black Talon, who immediately sees the zombie virus as a marketable weapon to deal to some of his criminal friends, namely, The Hood.
- The Last Defenders later return in Vengeance #1.
- One of Kale's incantations uses the same typeface used to indicate Skrull language during Secret Invasion, and can be deciphered with translations that appear in Secret Invasion #5. The incantation apparently deciphers to "(KOOKY ATLANTEAN WORD)."
