Heroes For Hire & Secret Six
Written by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning and Gail Simone
Drawn by Steve Englehart
A mysterious benefactor contacts the Secret Six, requesting their services to attack and kill a group of villains in New York. Bane, Scandal Savage, Ragdoll, Catman, Deadshot and Jeannette head to the Big Apple to track down a gang of freaks including a bunch of ninjas and a guy with a flaming skull. Of course, it turns out that they’ve really been duped into attacking the current line-up of the Heroes For Hire which includes Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Punisher, Elektra, Misty Knight, Moon Night, Black Widow, Falcon, Paladin and Silver Sable. An all out, brutal brawl ensues between the two teams with plenty of near casualties on both sides until they finally realize they’ve been set up. After doing some digging, the two teams, now working together, discover that Kingpin instigated the entire thing. The combined teams stage an all out attack on the plus-sized mobster and wind up fighting through an army of assailants from assassins to ninja.
