Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Battle Scars #4 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Elderly Viktor Uvarov is dying yet he is still calling for revenge and there’s still a hope: a mysterious “blood”….

In a New York high-rise, Marcus Johnson has been distracted from his battle with Taskmaster by the arrival of the Serpent Society (Anaconda, Death Adder, Rattler, Cottonmouth, Bushmaster). He takes them all on; Cheese is racing to his aid when he is waylaid by the man in the Scorpio mask, knocking him out. Marcus is overwhelmed by numbers and falls—only for Deadpool to come to his rescue, fighting off the Serpents. While they are distracted, Marcus drags Taskmaster into an elevator and demands answers from him, shooting TM in the leg to make his point. TM has time only to say, “Orion” before Scorpio enters, knocks out TM and tells a groggy Marcus to leave it alone and walk away. SHIELD arrives, Deadpool flees, Cheese finds Marcus and gets him away before he’s discovered….

Later in a motel room, Cheese advises Marcus to get out of there before they get killed. Marcus knocks his buddy out and goes alone. He catches up to Scorpio and beats him up, demanding answers. He is unmasked as Nick Fury, who tells Marcus his name is Fury too….
