Secret Wars II Reading Order

Secret Wars II is the first-ever massive Marvel crossover event that takes place after Secret Wars. Secret Wars was a big success in 1984 and Marvel followed the big success in its sequel called Secret Wars 2. A nine-issue comic book limited series published between 1985 and 1986. Historically, this was the first time Marvel published an event crossover following that model, where fans have to buy other titles which are tie-ins to this series.

In the first Secret Wars, many Marvel superheroes were called by Beyonder and they fought for their lives. This time, they fight for all existence. The Beyonder visits Earth in search of enlightenment and inevitably comes into conflict with Earth’s superhumans. Beyonder assumes a human form and seeks out various people to explain to him things like clothes, eating, and (sigh) using the bathroom (in Spider-Man’s apartment, no less). He tries Spider-Man, Reed Richards, some homeless woman, and finally Power Man and Iron Fist in the storyline.

The Beyonder falls in love with Dazzler and tries to start a relationship with Boom Boom, but both turn him down. Mephisto also brings his army against Beyonder.

What to read before Secret Wars II?

You need to read Secret Wars before this to get an understanding of the Beyonder and his unlimited powers. It is collected in Secret Wars (1984) #1-12.
