The Secret Wars Power Rankings – September 14, 2015

powerThe best part of Marvel’s Secret Wars is that virtually every facet of the massive event starts with an issue #1.  This presents 49 different jumping on points.  Some stories may be based on characters you know, some series may be from another event or world you’ve read about, but all of them are different enough that you can pick up the series and start reading.  With that in mind, we’ve harnessed the powers of Jimmy Impossible (who’s actually reading the entire event) to power rank every single Secret Wars series.  Each week the rankings will change as new issues come out, so come take a look at the latest power rankings after the break!

Secret Wars Rankings: Hail Hydra Edition

bertandernie

So apparently “Hail Hydra” is quite the meme.  Just do a quick image search on it.  Endless images of various people and characters saying it and one very pissed off Sam Jackson telling people to knock it off.

I missed this becoming a thing, but there it is.

It is also the biggest mover this week along with House of M.  That doesn’t mean they are great…just not as bad as they were last week.

After the break we’ll examine those series and also get Ryan and Tom’s thoughts on this weeks most overrated and underrated in the rankings.

Public Intel–Everything You Need To Engage In Secret Wars

doctor-doom

In the landmark 50th episode of the Gabbing Geek podcast, the Geeks had a lengthy discussion about the current Secret Wars event.  Part of the exchange went something like this:

Ryan: Armor Wars is awesome!!!!!  You guys should read it!!!!
Watson: You’ve lost me already.  I need to know the details from a nearly three decades old Iron Man story to read this?  I don’t think so.
Ryan: You don’t need to know anything about the old Armor Wars story.
Watson: Uh huh.
Ryan: Na uh.
Watson: Uh huh.
Ryan: Na uh.
Watson Uh huh.
Ryan: Uh huh.
Watson: Na uh…dammit!  Ok, I’ll read it.

The conversation did get me thinking though…what prior knowledge do you need to read some of these books?  Many share the names of events I may not have read.  What if, for example,  I haven’t read the original Infinity Gauntlet (and why haven’t you…but that is another column) can I read the new series?

You can find the answer to that question about every Secret Wars series after the cut.
