The The Unholy Resurrection of Leonardo da Vinci wiki last edited by Karasu87 on 05/02/15 10:15AM View full history

Leonardo Da Vinci was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. So was Issac Newton. So were Imhotep and Zhang Heng and Galileo and many other geniuses throughout time. They were the first heroes to defeat Galactus and the Brood and turn Celestials back. They saved the world long before Captain America or Iron Man were ever born, but what does this mean to our heroes of today? What does this mean to Nick Fury? Do not miss this Marvel Comics masterpiece that fans will be talking about for decades to come. All the insanity is courtesy of JONATHAN HICKMAN (FANTASTIC FOUR, SECRET WARRIORS, Nightly News) and DUSTIN WEAVER (X-MEN).1953: Leonid is taken from New York by Howard Stark and Nathaniel Richards to the Immortal City under Rome where he meets the High Council of the SHIELD, led by Isaac Newton.

2620BC: in Egypt, Imhotep leads an army including Apocalypse to defeat a Brood invasion, founding SHIELD in the process.

Back in the 50’s, Isaac Newton introduces Leonid to SHIELD and its higher calling. They describe how man can know the future: The Greater Science, The Quiet Math, The Silent Truth, The Hidden Arts and The Secret Alchemy. They tell him he will ‘stand in the gap.’

114AD Luoyan, China: Zhang Heng ascends a high tower with a SPEAR, and converses with a female Celestial.

1495 Florence: Leonardo DaVinci sees a shape within the Sun. By 1503 he has built a flying suit that allows him to fly into space

1582 Rome: Galileo builds a large laser weapon to defeat Galactus

1956: Leonid’s father, Nikola Tesla, The Night Machine appears (accompanied by a dove) and tells Leonid he’s come to tear the place to the ground. He takes Leonid to Iter, the door that can’t be opened and gives him the special key that opens it.

Howard and Nathaniel confront Nikola, confused that he is not dead. Ascending some stairs, Leonid meets Leonardo DaVinci in his flying suit.
