Secret Wars #1, Marvel Comics’ big 2015 event, officially hits stands today. It seems to open with a recap of sorts from New/Avengers issues that lead into the event, but it most directly continues from Marvel Comics’ Free Comic Book Day 2015 (FCBD 2015) Secret Wars #0 (spoilers here). Marvel Comic will also have 55 tie-in Secret Wars books on shelves over the coming months.

Secret Wars #1 spoilers and review follow.

In case you’re new to the current Marvel multiverse, Secret Wars #1 opens with a dramatis personae. That includes a listing of the seemingly righteous Illumaniti at the top and seemingly nefarious Cabal at the bottom.

Really enjoyed the Cabal arc on the Avengers animated series; didn’t realize a Cabal was in the comics. Am curious what role the Cabal will play vis-a-vis the Illuminati in Secret Wars.

In terms of the book, it appears of Marvel’s multiverse only the main 616 Marvel Earth / universe and its Utimate 1610 Marvel Earth / universe are the only two worlds’ left standing. Reed Richards and others 616 heroes are on a high-tech raft between both worlds… in the path of a collision course; a collision we know happens from Deadpool #1250 (spoilers here).

Despite the efforts of our heroes, the worlds’ collide and presumably everyone dies…. until Secret Wars #2?! 🙂
