** Volume 7 takes this UpToEleven. Kyousuke's side and Bridesmaid reappear, with the same goals as before. However, two of Bridesmaid's members, Olivia and Doctor S, have their own plans. Olivia wants [[spoiler:Kyousuke and the Queen to get together again]], while Doctor S [[spoiler:is in it for the thrills, and doesn't care who wins in the end]]. The White Queen (still with her previous goal) [[spoiler:disguises herself as the GirlOfTheWeek to sabotage Kyousuke's efforts... except then it turns out that she wanted him to succeed at beating her. By losing to the new weapon Kyousuke created, said weapon would become an even greater threat to the world than she was, forcing Kyousuke to ally with her]].

-->'''Harlequin:'' It's a series of conspiracies, conflicting agendas and petty jealousies, all building upon, feeding upon, and excreting into an unending web of drek that people wade through every day and call it Life. If there was one Dark Lord controlling everything and we could drive a magic sword through his heart to free the world, that would be grand. Such clarity! Such focus! Alas.

* In ''Fanfic/ExtraLife'', Junko and Izuru are both manipulating each other for the Neo World Program plan; Junko uses Izuru to get her AI in so [[BrainUploading she can upload her personality in the event of her death]], while he goes along with it to test whether hope can beat despair. For that purpose, he anonymously backs the Future Foundation so they don't get destroyed before the program is finished, plans to exploit Makoto's kindness to get himself and Class 77 placed in the program, and [[spoiler:makes the time to toss a MemoryGambit in there just in case the worst scenario comes to pass]].

** Lucius Malfoy, who is sick of being afraid and wants to make everyone else afraid of him, while protecting his family. Oh, and he wants revenge on Fury. To this end, he seeks to bring down the Avengers and [[spoiler: fuse HYDRA and the Death Eaters into a gestalt entity under his sole command. In chapter 50, he succeeds and prepares for the next step - the destruction of any and all potential threats to HYDRA, starting with the Avengers]]. Then, in chapter 74 he graduates to full on EvilOverlord when [[spoiler: he succeeds in neutralising the Avengers, destroying Avengers Tower and effectively has the world at his mercy.]]
** Gravemoss [[OmnicidalManiac wants to kill everything]] and rule over a universe of the dead. Cue [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder backstabbing]].
** Alexander Pierce, meanwhile, seems pretty comfortable with just going with the flow. For now. [[spoiler: Chapter 76 has him stab Lucius in the back by cheerfully asserting that what Nick Fury does in his free time - raise another team of Avengers and work with Jane Foster to find and crush HYDRA - is not his business, before hanging up.]]
** Dealing with all of these is Nick Fury, who's trying (and, to be fair, mostly succeeding) to crush HYDRA and is gunning for Lucius Malfoy in particular, [[ItsPersonal because he has a score to settle,]] while simultaneously trying to limit Loki's influence (it's not that he thinks that Loki's evil, it's just that he's got a job to do. And he doesn't trust him).

By chapter 77, however, this has all fallen apart and he's scuttled off to find a rock to hide under.]]
** Gravemoss [[OmnicidalManiac wants to kill everything]] and rule over a universe of the dead. Cue [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder backstabbing]]. \n Eventually, in chapter 76, [[spoiler: he finds out that EvilIsNotAToy, gets possessed by Chthon, then possibly vaporised by an Infinite Mass Punch from Jean-Paul. Or blasted somewhere past Jupiter. No one's really sure.]]

[[spoiler: Chapter 76 has him stab Lucius in the back by cheerfully asserting that what Nick Fury does in his free time - raise another team of Avengers and work with Jane Foster to find and crush HYDRA - is not his business, before hanging up.]] Then, [[spoiler: it turns out that Fury was tracing the call and catches him red-handed. In ''Ghosts of the Past'', he is seen extending his life by keeping as many secrets to himself as he can, making himself more useful alive than dead.]]

And he doesn't trust him). By chapter 80 of ''Child of the Storm'', [[spoiler: he's got Malfoy on the run, HYDRA in ruins, and has not only found Pierce, but got him in a lock up, with a purge of HYDRA to follow.]]



** Draco Malfoy, meanwhile [[spoiler: and the mysterious voice in his head which may or may not be the NotQuiteDead Prospero Slytherin]] is up to something, plotting a largely neutral course, though helping out the good guys with a tip-off here and there. What he's actually up to is, as of chapter 8 of ''Ghosts of the Past'', an enduring mystery.

** Alison Carter, the much younger sister of Peggy [[spoiler: (actually, daughter of Peggy and Steve)]], is nominally retired, but practically speaking playing spy games.



** And then there's Doctor Strange, who seems to be manipulating the hell out of ''everyone'' and is unequivocally 'up to something', but no one has even the faintest idea what that something is. Chapter 80 reveals that [[spoiler: he's preparing Earth to go up against Thanos.]] Confused yet?
