Unlimited Highlights: Circle of Four

Get caught up with Venom, X-23, Red Hulk and Ghost Rider before they converge in February

By Ben More

Every week we'll pick a handful of awesome comics from the thousands available through Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited. From creator spotlights to editor's picks and more, this'll be your spot to find something new and cool.

This February, VENOM will play host to Circle of Four, a six-part storyline bringing the titular alter ego of Flash Thompson together with X-23, Red Hulk and the new Ghost Rider in Las Vegas for a wild adventure that will leave every character forever changed. Before we get there though, enjoy some past comics that provide the perfect lead-in…


Years before this Circle of Four gathered, writer Walt Simonson and artist Art Adams brought together a similarly offbeat quartet consisting of a webslinger, a clawed mutant, a gamma-irradiated bruiser and a Spirit of Vengeance. With the Fantastic Four incapacitated by the Skrulls, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk and Ghost Rider take up their battle against the Mole Man and a horde of monstrous creatures in this classic story!

X-23 (2005) #1

What would happen if a group of scientists with questionable morals got their hands on Wolverine’s genetic material? X-23, that’s what. Witness the genesis of one the Marvel Universe’s most lethal figures as the Facility builds themselves a killer housed on the form of a young girl. Meet X-23’s “mother” and find out how this innocent lost her childhood to violence and rage.

HULK (2008) #23

At long last, the secret history of the Red Hulk revealed! Find out how General “Thunderbolt” Ross, one of the Hulk’s most implacable tormentors, transformed himself into a bigger, badder version of his hated foe. Learn what roles The Leader, M.O.D.O.K., Doc Samson and others played in this multi-layered conspiracy. Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness provide answers years in the making!


It’s the last stand of brothers Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch, as they team with the new Caretaker to wage war on rogue angel Zadkiel and attempt to prevent Kid Blackheart from fulfilling his dark destiny. Just about every wild and crazy Ghost Rider foe in history comes out of the woodwork for this one, providing a manic last lap to Jason Aaron’s high octane run writing the Spirit of Vengeance!


All his life, Flash Thompson has dreamed of being a hero like Spider-Man. He proved himself every bit as brave and selfless as his idol when he served in Iraq and lost his legs, but his story takes a surprising new twist in this turning point story by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos. See how Flash became Venom and tag along for his first trial run with his dangerous new suit!
