Marvel Unveils Exciting 40th Anniversary Celebration For SECRET WARS

In a homage to a pivotal moment in comic book history, Marvel Comics is all set to launch a spectacular 40th-anniversary celebration of its original crossover event, “Secret Wars,” crafted by the team of Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and Bob Layton. The anniversary comes in the form of a brand-new series, aptly titled “MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD,” poised to reignite the awe and excitement that the original saga brought to readers.

“MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD” revisits the showdown that took place on Battleworld, where Marvel’s mightiest heroes and most formidable villains were pitted against each other by the incredibly powerful Beyonder. Steering this revival is industry icon Tom DeFalco, former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief and the editor of the original “Secret Wars,” who joins forces with acclaimed artist Pat Olliffe to take readers on a new adventure starring Spider-Man and the Human Torch.

Marvel fans can now get a sneak peek at all the covers and revel in the all-new interior artwork. This new series seamlessly weaves its narrative between the pages of the original, picking up the story after Spider-Man acquires his iconic black alien costume, a precursor to the creation of Venom. The preview transports readers back to the iconic moments of “Secret Wars” and hints at the commencement of Spider-Man and the Human Torch’s clandestine mission.

Moreover, “MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD” promises to unravel a 40-year-old mystery with jaw-dropping appearances by characters that were previously unknown to have fought in the original “Secret Wars.” The cover of issue #2 teases the inclusion of villains like Baron Zemo, Hobgoblin, Electro, Constrictor, and more on Battleworld. What’s the common thread connecting these characters? Marvel aficionados are aware that “MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS” not only impacted comic book storytelling but also spawned a beloved Marvel Comics toy line. This toy line featured various heroes and villains who didn’t make it into the original event, and their roles and significance will be unveiled as the series progresses.

Tom DeFalco, the co-creator of this sequel, expressed the creative challenge that lay ahead, stating, “Pat Olliffe and I were handed a daunting creative challenge… 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.” The project was nurtured by editors Mark Basso and Drew Baumgartner, with DeFalco and Olliffe crafting a tale that aims to resonate with readers today and continue to ripple throughout the Marvel Universe for years to come.

Editor Mark Basso added, “Whether you never read SECRET WARS, or spent the 80s poring over the comics in between fighting with your Secret Wars figures and their Secret Shields…you’re going to come away from this adventure with a complete story and, if you are a long-term fan, an even greater understanding of the characters and stakes in this greatest of wars.”

“MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS” set the standard for Marvel Comics events, and “MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD” promises to honor that legacy.
