Marvel’s big Secret Wars mega-storyarc is coming soon, and if you’ve been following Jimmy Impossible’s posts, you’ve probably gotten a lot of information on what worlds and zones are going to exist and a few of the more recent steps leading to the start of this epic storyline. But Jimmy hasn’t been reading Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers/New Avengers work from the beginning. I have. Jimmy actually goes out sometimes.
Secret Wars looks to be an epic story in the making, and Hickman’s been setting this thing up for the past couple years. People who skipped those steps and jump right into Secret Wars might feel a little lost since they missed the preliminaries.
So, as a public service, here’s what you need to know from the build-up to Secret Wars. SPOILERS behind the cut.
