"Snobby elitism has been used against me and my love of certain things in pop culture. In the case of my comic book fandom, that would mean my adoration of Marvel's Secret Wars series. The fights are fun and everyone gets their moment, whether it's Hulk holding up an ENTIRE MOUNTAIN to save his teammates, or Spider-Man outfoxing the X-Men who operate as a pseudo-rogue third party based on how the heroes mistrust the mutants. On the villains side, watching all of these immense egos try to get along is more entertaining than any season of the Real World." -- Mark Ginocchio
"Secret Wars was the original 12-part mega-epic. All of the major players from Marvel were involved, from Spider-Man to Dr. Doom, from Wolverine to Galactus. All taken to a strange new world which the characters call Battleworld. What ensues is an all-out Marvel Superhero millitary campaign. With fun developments along the way: Spider-Man's Black Costume, the introduction of a new Spider-Woman ... all had far reaching impact on future Marvel books. This is one of those stories you can read for the pure enjoyment of reading." -- David Suiter
"Secret Wars II is also the story of another all-powerful being ... the Molecule Man. Short, meek, unassuming, but blessed with powers almost akin to the Beyonder ... his struggles to maintain a balance and equilibrium between himself and the world around him serve as a signpost and a warning to The Beyonder. I can see his appeal to me when I was younger ... but there is a tremendous amount of nuance writers Jim Shooter and Roger Stern bring to the character that help him resonate even with my adult self." -- Brett Beach
"Secret Wars II doesn't always feel like your typical comic book. Instead, it gives off the feeling of a character study with a real philosophical edge. How does an all powerful being, a god, find satisfaction? The Beyonder has the power to do anything he wants, create any life he wants, manipulate the feelings of anyone he chooses, yet he is clearly unhappy. [The story] holds up well enough ... I would recommend the crossovers [for] a more fulfilling experience." -- Frankie Torres
"The summer blockbuster of comics" -- Vernon Clark Mayo
"Marvel had always interwoven characters and storylines through its different comic series ... [but] the idea of placing so many different heroes and villains into one smashingly cool story-line was new, and THAT'S what makes Secret Wars a groundbreaker." -- Susan Bueti
