222 – Secret Wars

Secret Wars

We’re doing a three-episode special on Marvel’s classic Beyonder event series by reading “Secret Wars” by Jim Shooter. We break into this classic comic and all the way it just doesn’t seem to hold up. There’s all kinds of things here that throw up weird alarm bells, from Wasp’s flippant nail obsession to Colossus’ creepy doting of a woman he just met. Aside from a quirky/cute romance between two random old school characters, there’s just not much here anymore. Plus, we rationalize our decision to not go to SDCC.
