Secret Wars 2015: Marvel Plans Crossover Comic Event Where Civil War, Old Man Logan, Age of Apocalypse Timelines Collide [VIDEO]
Not to be outdone by DC, Marvel has a mega event in the works for 2015. Fans of the company are being treated to a Secret Wars series, the battle royal of the Marvel universe. To help readers better prepare for the mega event, the company has released the map of Battleworld so you can easily track what's happening where.
There will be a host of different canon story lines featured in the comic from various pasts, futures, and dead end alternative realities. These realities include such arcs as Age of Apocalypse, Old Man Logan, and even Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies. Again, Marvel Zombies gets a part. No one is excluded. No one is safe.
Each story arc/reality included from the Marvel Universe gets its own country on the map. There are likely to be some overlap in heroes but who doesn't want to see two different Hulks go at it?
For the uninitiated, the original Secret Wars was a yearlong crossover event from 1984 to 1985. The storyline centered around a cosmic entity that loved the Marvel heroes so much, it decided to abduct them and have them duke it out on its own Battleworld. Good times were had by all, although, not really.
Spider-Man had his own personal trip to the Secret Wars in 2010 but that won't keep him joining in the fun for 2015. It's like the Mafia, you think you're out but they keep pulling you back in.
The Secret Wars 2015 will begin in May with Jonathan Hickman as writer and Esad Ribic as artist.
