Secret Empire

Post by metaldragon » Sun May 18, 2008 4:31 pm

Has anyone tracked all the issues involved in this long and complicated crossover storyline? It ran from at least March 1972 to July 1974 and ended in Captain America 175 with the shocking suicide of the US President. I'm interested in the appearances (including BTS), names and numbers of all the Secret Empire's agents. Thanks!

I know at least part of it is covered in the X-Men Index v2 #4.

Yup, that covers the appearances of the X-Men but I'm actually interested in the Agents of the Empire too. Did they appear in any other books doing stuff for the Empire besides kidnapping the X-Men? In CA 175 Moonstone implicates Viper was an agent for the Empire and a footnote mentions Viper's activities in Captain America 163.

AThe bulk of the story seems to have run from Captain America #169-176.

Prior to the Captain America, they were mainly in Tales to Astonish (mostly Hulk, with a nice semi-crossover into the Namor side for a few issues):
