  1. Since the original Secret Wars and Secret Wars II made absolutely no sense, I don’t hold much hope for this remake…

  2. The one thing Secret Wars didn’t have was a coherent story line. It presaged the age of the Event comic by telling a lot of disjointed adventures, loosely tied together under the banner of “Secret Wars”, spread out among every Marvel Series, with the series ending with no real consequences to the Marvel universe. The only thing I remember carrying through into the regular books was that Spiderman kept his black costume for a while. In my opinion, the whole Secret Wars series was just an attempt on Marvel’s part to imitate DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths, which sold a lot of comics. I read Secret Wars two or three times, could never make sense out of it, and threw the comics away. Nuff said.

    • You are incorrect. Secret Wars was 12 issues, covering one week of regular time for the characters, but a year of real-world issues. It also predates Crisis On Infinite Earths by nearly two years, and had no crossover tie-ins.
