With the months and months of teaser images, spin-off announcements, and everything else in between, it seems like Marvel’s Secret Wars has been a thing for so long that I forgot it was actually a comic, and one that just now happens to be coming out. Most of the major players of the Marvel universe are here, including the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, hopefully silencing those rumors that are saying that Marvel is downplaying those characters because of film rights issues with Fox.
Amidst all the chaos and reality-ending destruction, Jonathan Hickman provides real human moments for all the characters. Now to address the elephant in the room: How does this compare to DC’s Convergence, their very, very similar event, going on at the same time? Secret Wars is the end of the Marvel world as we know it according to Marvel SVP of Publishing Tom Brevoort.
You all voted for the most memorable Marvel covers from the past 50 years (since Fantastic Four #1 came out, the beginning of the “Marvel Age”) and here are your results for the Top 50 covers that you deemed to be the most memorable of the Marvel Age (some signs of a memorable cover is the cover being homaged a lot or being featured on posters, licensed products and histories of certain comic book characters)! I’m not going to lie, because of all the hype going into it, I was sick of Secret Wars long before it ever came out.


If Secret Wars is as huge and game-changing to the Marvel Universe as Marvel keeps saying that it will be, then Ribic is definitely giving this book the love and attention that it deserves, and it shows. The first issue of that seminal book featured a world already in the process of being destroyed, and we see the Crime Syndicate of Earth-3 try to fight a wave of entropy as it engulfs their world, ultimately losing, watching as their reality get destroyed. I’m a DC fanboy, so it kills me to say this, but based on their first issues, Secret Wars slaps Convergence around and leaves it crying for mommy on the playground.
Well, this proves that I’m a very silly person, because Secret Wars #1 just knocked it out of the park.
It also has a great moment that showcases how awesome and powerful the Invisible Woman is, on top of everything else. The entire first issue of Secret Wars is very much like that classic first issue of Crisis (even the Alex Ross cover is very similar to George Perez’s cover for that book) as the heroes of both the classic Earth-616 Marvel universe and the Ultimate universe try their hardest to keep their worlds from colliding and ultimately destroying each other. While the first issue of Convergence had decent art, the writing was sloppy and filled with clunky  exposition.


Strange, and Molecule Man are bearing witness to the end, and Doom even seems to have a religious moment during all of it. Sure, these characters will all be back, but Hickman and Ribic truly produced this issue as if it were the last stand of the Marvel heroes, and they all were going out doing what they do best: fighting the good fight and trying to save innocent lives.
The opening issue is really a chronicle of the final moments of these worlds, as the two Earths came crashing into each other. While the question remains if the rest of the series can live up to the first installment, based on this issue they’re off to a great start.
