  1. Stephen, I think you are reading more into the Secret Wars tie-ins than is actually there so far.

    None of the tie-ins thus far have had any connection to existing story threads from Secret Wars. The first issues have served to show what life is like in the various domains and make you question “How/Why are there so many versions of the same character everywhere? Why does everyone just accept it as part of life?” There are at least 3 Scott Summerses running around in the various book, as he’s been seen in X-Men ’92, Battleworld, and Inferno, and there’s probably a version in the Domain of Apocalypse, one in the Monarchy of M, and the Phoenix infused 616 version probably survived in Reed Richards’s life raft.

    The why of all it hasn’t been fully explained. We only know that the Beyonders were planning on simultaneously destroying all of the multiverses, and Doom learned this and foiled their plot, but by doing so caused the incursions that caused the universes to die one by one. Like Matthew said, the explanation of the Incursions, the Beyonders, Doom, and Strange was in the last issue of New Avengers (#33 I believe).

    Speaking of New Avengers, both that book and Avengers did the “Eight Months Later” shtick in the months leading up to Secret Wars. Part of the events of Original Sin was Steve Rogers relearning about the Incursions and the Illuminati.

    • Accidentally hit post before I finished. As I was saying, after Original Sin, Steve learned that the Illuminati was dealing with the Incursions and had wiped his minds and started hunting them down. The next issue jumped forward eight months and the following issues dealt with both what was going on in the “present” and giving hints as to what had happened over the eight months that had been skipped.
