Where Camp Hammond once trained future Avengers, Camp H.A.M.M.E.R. now trains tomorrow's Dark Avengers! The new principals are Taskmaster and the Hood, and they're registering villains as heroes and spreading Norman's empire across the nation.

Hunted by the law, hidden from sight, a Resistance has formed - and its members are out to stop H.A.M.M.E.R. by any means necessary! Softcover, 456 pages, full color. Cover price $34.99.
