    Neat cover. The concept seems a little overbaked (Last Comic Hero?) but it could be interesting.

    Maybe Skurge the Executioner will show up?

    I’m as nostalgic as any comic fan, but this seems a bit forced. Didn’t they already do Secret Wars II?

    Still, a cool cover….

    In 1985 Magneto was still a bad guy – Secret Wars (the first series) was still being published, and during that series, although he was placed in the side of the heroes, he was still considered a villain. After Secret Wars 2 Magneto officially joined the side of the angels.
