Big superhero events are always marketed with promises of permanent status quo changes and shocking developments. The problem is, nobody believes that anymore.
Secret Wars is finally at an end, and we’ve finally gotten an answer to a question that’s plagued Marvel readers ever since the “All-New, All-Different” universe began: What the hell happened to Reed Richards and Sue Storm, half of the Fantastic Four? Turns out, Marvel’s First Family is doing some pretty crazy stuff.
Marvel finally did it. Eight months after it began, Secret Wars came to a close today, after nine issues of reality-bending madness. No idea what the fuss is? Want to get in on the event that brought us an All-New Marvel universe, juuuust as it’s ending? What the hell happened to the Fantastic Four? Here’s our guide.
There are lots of Spider-people in the Marvel Universe right now. But only two of them call themselves Spider-Man. One, of course, is the newly-rich Peter Parker, originator of the wall-crawler identity. The other is an alternate-reality successor to the Spider-mantle named Miles Morales. This week, we see Miles play…
It’s been nearly three whole months since we bid adieu to the Marvel comic universe of old, and said hello to the world of “All-New, All-Different” Marvel. In many ways, a lot has changed, and in some frustrating ways, barely anything has. Not been reading along? This is how it has shaped up so far.
The final issue of Marvel’s Secret Wars event has been delayed to January 6th. Secret Wars was meant to end in early October, ahead of Marvel’s universal reboot. The addition of a new issue, and this new delay mean that we’ll have spent three months experiencing the fallout of Secret Wars before it actually finishes.
Marvel have put out a ridiculous number of tie-ins for their ongoing, universe-rebooting mega event Secret Wars. But one of their latest spinoffs, Secret Wars: Secret Love, is surprisingly unique. Not only is it a superheroic romance anthology that works—it might just end up being one of the best Secret Wars comics…
The second most-surprising thing about Marvel Comics’ big 2015 crossover comic book event is that it’s very good. These epics tend to disappoint, but not this one. The bigger surprise? Even the comics tying into it are mostly really good. That never happens.
Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars might just be the best thing to come from Marvel’s ongoing Secret Wars event. It’s not only filled with brilliant deep cuts for the classic ‘80s comic crossover, but it’s irreverently funny—and this week, it takes on the most iconic moment from the original event.
Marvel’s Secret Wars event is all about exploring the different shards of the Marvel universe... the ones that are left, that is. Some of those shards even recall the times Marvel’s heroes crossed over with those of the DC Multiverse, which means Alex Ross got to sneak in one tiny encounter on this awesome cover.
Good news, everyone! Spider-Gwen — the alt-verse Gwen Stacey who becomes Spider-Woman — will get a new series after Marvel stops shaking up its current comics with Secret Wars. The weird news? It also confirms that the Marvel universe we’re getting later this year may not be as “All-New, All Different” as we thought.
Deadpool as a character is known for his ability to tear a gaping hole through the fourth wall — so a whole series about him going back to the original 1984 Secret Wars event and mucking around isn’t out of character. But the series’ second issue, out today, also has one of the most bizarre deep cuts I’ve ever seen in…
Tony Stark’s Iron Man is easily one the most popular character in the Marvel movie-verse. Once the Secret Wars smoke clears, Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez are tasked with making him just as popular on the comic page. It’s not going to be easy.
So Marvel has unleashed another image of the post-Secret Wars, “All-New, All-Different” Marvel Universe. And this one includes some Wolverines and even one of the Fantastic Four!
We’ve already had some teasers about what’s to come for Marvel Comics after its Secret Wars event, but now we have the full details: The Marvel Comics Universe is getting a major shakeup this September, with new characters, new series, and big changes for some long-running heroes.
The Marvel Universe we knew is dead. In its place is a new gestalt planet, stitched together from pieces of the preceding multiverse by the all-powerful will of Dr. Doom. This week, we’ll get our first real glimpses of the realms that make up Battleworld.
Most of Marvel Comics’ attention right now is on their ongoing gigantic Secret Wars event. We’ve known what’s ending, but what about what happens after? At last weekend’s Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, the company lifted the lid on a few of the things that will happen when the dust settles later this year.
So we’ve taken a look at what Secret Wars is about, what the “Last Days” are, and what the “Battleworld” books are. The “Battleworld” books take a look at events that cross different regions in Battleworld. The “Warzones!” books, however, take a look at specific stories in different individual regions. These are the…
Marvel’s big summer event kicks off with a bang, as the Main and Ultimate universes crash together to deadly effect. But it’s not all there is to this week’s new comics. DC’s digital Lynda-Carter-inspired Wonder Woman comic comes to print, and the Matrix vs. Apocalypse showdown Arcadia begins. So many comics!
So I’ve already explained what Secret Wars is about and gotten several comments to the effect of: this sounds confusing. And yes, it does. But while I will be reading the main mini-series, what is really interesting about Secret Wars to me is all of the side series, the “Battleworld” and “Warzones!” and “Last Days.”…
