Marvel’s ‘Secret Wars’ Primer, Part 1: ‘To Infinity…’

Marvel’s Secret Wars are (almost) finally upon us! It’s been a long and winding road to Battleworld, through Multiversal Incursion after Multiversal Incursion, two different Avengers series, an event or two, and the destruction of the entire Marvel Universe, but we made it. Now, if you have no Earthly idea what any of that means, you are not alone. Jonathan Hickman’s epic sci-fi tale of betrayal, war, destruction, and morality that culminates in Marvel’s 2015 mega-event started way back in 2012 with Avengers #1, quickly became part of Hickman’s other ongoing, New Avengers, swerved right into the Infinity event, and has encompassed nearly 100 single comic book issues.

That’s a whole lot of story to catch up on if you’ve missed out, but this primer series should be all you need to understand exactly what’s lead to Secret Wars, what the event is all about, and even includes a brief tour of Battleworld itself. Even if you have kept up with everything up to this point there still may be some things you can take away from this summary, and I’d love any fact-checking you can provide.

So, let’s start at the beginning.

(SPOILER WARNING: This is a summary of events occurring in Marvel Comics Avengers, New Avengers, Infinity, and other series/books that could potentially damage your reading experience. Consider yourself warned!)

Avengers & New Avengers to End in April

“This is The End! My only friend, The End!”

Marvel has sent word that the current volumes of Avengers and New Avengers, Jonathan Hickman’s epic run that culminates with Marvel’s Secret Wars event, will indeed be ending prior to the release of that event. While that’s all we know for sure right now, we do have the final covers of the books. Read on for more!

Prediction: Marvel’s Summer 2015 Teasers

Secret Wars 2015There isn’t any more comfortable form of transportation than a hype-train. You know, that fast-moving, rail-bending ramp-up to the next big comic book event? The Big 2 do it all the time, and nothing has been heavier with hype over the past few weeks than Marvel Comics’ series of Summer 2014 teasers. There are all sorts of rumors flying around the Internet, most of them overly imaginative; like a series of redo events, or a line-wide reboot; or underwhelming ‘been-there-done-thats’; like What If? stories; but I haven’t seen anyone apply what we know, put it into a context, and apply previous Marvel promotions to the current trend. It all makes for my own theory about the teasers, and it has nothing to do with an event, and everything to do with Jonathan Hickman, his Secret Wars and his Avengers.
