The best part of Marvel’s Secret Wars is that virtually every facet of the massive event starts with an issue #1. This presents 48 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!
Marvel’s Secret Wars event is a fascinating experiment in storytelling. Not only is it a complete reboot of the Marvel universe, it’s also the rare cross-over event where every series is new and presents a jumping on opportunity for all readers. You may know the story/universe that the series is based upon but it isn’t required to jump on board. But with over a half century of unique titles to choose from, it can be a bit daunting.
Although we’ve provided plenty of reading guides for the build-up to Secret Wars and Jimmy’s own complete Secret Wars read-through, this post presents all series in a power ranked list. We’ll be reposting every week with the new power rankings so come back to Gabbing Geek to see if your favorites moved up or down. Think a series deserves a different rank? Let us know in the comments. Jump after the break for the full rankings!
