Marvel has had an interesting summer with the Battleworld/Secret Wars storyline.
All in all it has managed to take everything cool that the house of ideas has ever done and thrown it all together as a precursor to some kind of incredible reboot. With incarnations of all the Marvel characters manifested on the patches of land held together by Doom’s will and a plot that now (at summer’s end) has been revealed in this week’s issues.
The Korvac Saga #3 sees Korvac had previously made a deal with Doom but his subconscious could not manage to keep it. A-Force #3 has She Hulk at the center of mystery that surrounds a little girl that is actually a universe incarnate. Inhumans Attilan Rising #4 A Black Bolt that has not undergone Terra- genesis is leading a revolution against Doom, and the Attilan leader Medusa just found out why. Secret Wars #5 reveals the backstory of how Doom came to power and who was there to help him hold it together. With the survivors of both ships now spread across all of Battleworld, Doom has sent the Thors to collect the “anomalies” who remembers the world before. Also this week as a comedic break from al the Doom we have The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #8 presents Cat Thor.
