Let the Battle Begin! Your New Look at SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #1
New York, NY—April 21st, 2015 — The battles in Secret Wars are so big, we had to launch an entirely new title just to contain them! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look inside SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #1 – a new 4-issue Secret Wars limited series of wall-to-wall action across the surface of Battleworld! Bursting with epic action, each issue of SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD features two all-new high-octane stories ripped from the pages of the biggest event of the year!
This issue – what happens when Dr. Strange possesses the Punisher? Meet the Sorcerer EXTREME! Only Spider-Man, Wolverine, the Hulk and Ghost Rider of this land can track this terrible two-in-one down. And things are going to get messy! Then, what happens when M.O.D.O.K. recruits every M.O.D.O.K. ever from across Battleworld for his evil scheme. We’ll give you a hint – F.I.G.H.T.!
