“Secret Wars” is on the horizon. In 2015, Marvel is going to be revisiting the concept of the Battleworld. However, whereas the original series’ Battleworld was just a giant landscape composed of pieces from different planets, the new Battleworld, as revealed, seems to be a bit different.
This new Battleworld seems to be composed of various universes, with such examples being #3: Dominion of Apocalypse (Age of Apocalypse), #27: 2099 (2099) and #29: The Monarchy of M (House of M). The most interesting one is the diagram we get of the territory in the center, #20: Manhattan, which is composed of the Manhattan of the main Marvel Universe (616), the Manhattan of the Ultimate Universe (1610), Attilan and Monster Metropolis.
Secret Wars #1 by Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic with cover by Alex Ross will be released May 2015.
