After learning that their future selves were killed by the Runaways, the Yorkes decide to liquidate the Street Arabs, destroying The Swell's tiny "kingdom".]]
* In ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers of Victory'', the Manhattan Guardian spends the first half of his miniseries dealing with a war between ''two'' kings, No-Beard and All-Beard, whose pirate gangs are in a race to find a treasure hidden in the subway system.
