Order, The #2 Synopsis by Peter Kowalchick
The Order attacks the UN, announcing to its General Assembly that it will tolerate its existence if it does not meddle in the Orders protecting of the world. Dr. Strange seals the mouth of an outspoken delegate, prompting the Hulk to make a Harlan Ellison joke. They declare their superiority and decide to make the Red Ravens floating city their new base. They promptly defeat the Red Raven and his avian army. Dr. Strange remakes the island in four different images, each according to individual tastes, with a throne in the center, prompting some odd brief dissensions between the Orders members before they return to their respective enclaves. Nighthawk, Hellcat, Valkyrie II, and Papa Hagg convene in a new headquarters provided by Valkyrie IIs rich parents. The four enter a mystical plane where the Orders spirits are held in bondage, accounting for their odd (well, not for Namor) world-dominating behavior. A brief skirmish between the Orders astral projections ensues to chase the four out of the mystical plane. The headquarters computer, programmed with the image of Valkyries childhood pink plush rabbit toy informs them of the Orders stoppage of oil drilling in Alaska and the brutal threats by Namor and the Silver Surfer. President Bush decides to call in the Avengers.
