Secret Wars – Jonathon Hickman

secret_wars

Two different versions of the Marvel universe have collided and fused into a bizarre planet called Battleworld, ruled with an iron fist by Dr. Doom.  I guess this is like a Marvel of version of DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline.

Every now and then I try to figure out why I prefer DC over Marvel. Both are silly, but while Marvel seems to embrace the absurdity, DC knows that their stories are inherently ridiculous but still manages to take them seriously. I don’t really know, but Secret Wars’ patchwork planet is a great way to showcase Marvel-brand silliness.

Even better, this event reads as though it’s intended to define the status quo for future Marvel adventures. So when I read some of those titles, I’ll have more of an idea what’s actually going on. Great.
