2008 saw Dark Horse and writer Rick Remender team up with penciller Mat Broome and inker Sean Parsons to deliver stellar The End League superhero saga. Issue 2 shipped with the following synopsis:
Lobotomized and insane with rage, Thor returns from the dead with one goal-the annihilation of his former teammates. The fate of the world once again rests on the shoulders of The Miraculous Astonishman, the only man living with the power to stop a God of Thunder gone mad. Meanwhile, the mysterious man known only as Black uncovers the truth behind mastermind Dead Lexington’s renewed interest in the demise of the last remaining heroes on Earth.
For the cover, Mat whipped up this stunning piece of art, depicting a furious Thunder God out to cause all sorts of havoc – and with only a single hero to block his path!
