What to expect from Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars: Battleworld
As Marvel explains, Secret Wars: Battleworld takes place “after Spidey receives his iconic black alien costume that would one day become Venom!” The four-part, in-continuity series also “holds answers to a 40-year old mystery with shocking appearances by characters that you didn’t even know fought in Secret Wars!”
In Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and Bob Layton’s original 12-issue saga, the cosmic being known as the Beyonder transported Marvel’s greatest heroes and villains to the mysterious Battleworld and forced them to duke it out for his amusement. The seminal ’80s crossover spawned a number of follow-ups, and even serves as the basis for the upcoming Marvel Studios film Avengers: Secret Wars.
“Pat Olliffe and I were handed a daunting creative challenge,” DeFalco said. “We were asked to do a sequel/new tale of a classic Marvel story that first saw print 40 years ago and created ripples that are still felt throughout the universe today. Since we share a kinship with a certain web-swinger (and his family), we were also compelled to do a story that ripped to his core and defined his unique place in the Marvel Universe while examining the budding relationship with his new black costume. With the aid of editors Mark Basso and Drew Baumgartner, Pat and I constructed a tale that we believe has repercussions for today’s readers and creative ripples that we hope will still be felt 40 years from now.”
The original Secret Wars returns to print in 2024
To celebrate 40 years of Secret Wars, Marvel will also be releasing new facsimile editions of all 12 issues of Shooter, Zeck, and Layton’s original series throughout 2024. Additionally, the publisher will be rolling out facsimile editions of the issues of Amazing Spider-Man that released alongside Secret Wars — starting with issue #252, which kicked off Peter Parker‘s “Alien Costume Saga.”
Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars: Battleworld #1 goes on sale Wednesday, November 22 from Marvel Comics. Issue #2 follows suit on December 27.
