Secret Wars: Battleworld #1-4

Post by Col_Fury » Mon Aug 07, 2017 4:41 am

SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #1 (July 2015)
By Joshua Williamson & Mike Henderson

APPEARANCES:
No Domain: Punisher, Doctor Strange’s ghost
Inferno Domain: Hulk, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Spider-Man
Old Man Thor, Thor/Sif, Frog Thor, Beta Ray Bill, Destroyer Thor, Ultimate Thor, Thor/Ororo Munroe, a regular-looking Thor
Doctor Strange

SYNOPSIS:
The Infernal Four track down Punisher (unaware he’s haunted by Doctor Strange’s ghost). Hey finally kill him, but not before he kills three of them (Wolverine survives). Wolverine reports to Sheriff Strange, unaware Wolverine is now haunted by Doctor Strange’s ghost.

NOTE:
Punisher/Strange don’t come from a Domain, it’s noted. They’re just characters that fell into Battleworld without their reality. This sound super familiar.

Sheriff Strange is bypassing the Thors whenever a rogue Doctor Strange shows up. I guess he doesn’t want competition.

2nd Story:
By Ed Brisson & Scott Hepburn

APPEARANCES:
Warzone Domain: MODOK
other MODOKs (inc a zombie MODOK, a baby MODOK, a Spider-MODOK, a MODOK from 1872, a Cyclops MODOK, a demon MODOK, a Ghost Rider MODOK, a Frankenstein MODOK, a walking MODOK, a alien MODOK, a S.H.I.E.L.D. MODOK (from the future), others)
two Thors

SYNOPSIS:
MODOK summons other MODOKs from different Domains so they can team up and defat Doom. They all end up fighting each other. Later, the Thors arrives to punish the survivors.

SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #2 (August 2015)
By David F. Walker & J.J. Kirby

APPEARANCES:
Unknown: Blade (also in fb), Dracula (in fb), Lilith (in fb), Morbius (in fb)
New Quack City: Drakula, Howard the Duck, Blade the Duck

FLASHBACK:
Blade fights Dracula, Lilith and Morbius.
SYNOPSIS:
Blade shows up in New Quack City, fights Drakula and meets Howard the Duck. Also, Blade the Duck appears.

2nd Story:
By Donny Cates & Marco Turini

APPEARANCES:
Doomstadt: Arcade, Taskmaster (dies)
Captain (Steve Rogers) (I need to re-read Planet Hulk)
Greenland: War Machine (Thunderbolt Ross)
a Nico Minoru
a Carmilla Black
a Radioactive Man? (I need to re-read Ghost Racers)
Robbie Reyes (from Ghost Racers; already getting famous)
various zombies
Doctor Doom

SYNOPSIS:
Arcade runs his Killiseum for the amusement of Doom and Battleworld. When he brings in War Machine (Thunderbolt Ross), Taskmaster (the trainer/handler for the Killiseum) objects. Arcade makes Taskmaster fight War Machine and Taskmaster dies.

NOTE:
I’m not sure where the Captain is from yet. This is the version from Planet Hulk, but this Steve’s not from Greenland; he was sent there. I’m going to hold off on him for now until I read through the rest of everything.

Also, I seem to recall a guy in Ghost Racers (or heck, maybe I was Planet Hulk) that looks like a guy here who looks like Radioactive Man. However, I might just be remembering THIS.

SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #3 (September 2015)
By Ivan Brandon & Aaron Conley

APPEARANCES:
Mojo, a whole bunch of Wolverines

SYNOPSIS:
Mojo hosts his new show where a bunch of different Wolverines fight each other.

NOTE:
Being he Mojo Domain, I’m assuming these are all actors or something.

2nd Story:
By Ryan Ferrier & Logan Faerber

APPEARANCES:
1872: Deadpool, Lockjaw
Valley of the Flame: Devil Dinosaur, Moon Boy

SYNOPSIS:
Deadpool thinks riding around on Lockjaw is too slow, so he wants Devil Dinosaur as his new ride. He ends up making friends with Moon Boy.

NOTE:
His Deadpool seems like he’s from the Old West, so likely the Domain seen in 1872. There’s already a Wade Wilson from that Domain, but that one is still handsome while his one is ugly and has a healing factor.

3rd Story:
By Ryan Ferrier & Paul Pope

APPEARANCES:
Ant-Man (Pym), Ant-Man (O’Grady), Ant-Man (Lang), Bug, Ant (from a different company), Wasp (Pym), various other Ant-Men

SYNOPSIS:
All the Ant-Men fight until Lang accidentally step on all of them.

NOTE:
I’m assuming this goofy one-page story is a Mojo-Dot-Mojo tale.

SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #4 (October 2015)
By James Stokoe

APPEARANCES:
Egyptia Domain: Silver Surfer (also in fb), Fin Fang Foom, Juggernaut, Shalla-Bal (also in fb), Galactus (also in fb)

FASHBACK:
Galactus arrives in Zenn-La and the Silver Surfer aggress to find him food.
SYNOPSIS:
Silver Surfer and Juggernaut kill Fin Fang Foom. Silver Surfer butchers him and brings him back to Galactus, but is shocked to see Galactus has eaten everyone while he was gone. Silver Surfer kills Galactus.

2nd Story:
By Peter David & Daniel Valadez

APPEARANCES:
Dystopia Domain: Maestro, Silver Surfer

SYNOPSIS:
Silver Surfer returns to Maestro’s palace to retrieve his surfboard. Maestro tries to stop him but the Silver Surfer really doesn’t notice that much. He returns to his new team and bids Maestro farewell.

NOTE:
Huh. The Silver Surfer that appears in Secret Wars 2099 is actually from Maestro’s Domain, and is not native to 2099.
