Secret Wars II #9 of 9

February 22, 2012

Jim Shooter // Al Milgrom
March 1986
The series takes a truly weird twist as its protag invents a Kirbytech “birthing module” that allows him to be reborn as an omnipotent mortal (the turn echoes Shooter’s similar, infamous “Rape of Ms. Marvel” plotline). Every superhero in Marvel Comics wants to stop the cosmic being, leading some to propose infanticide! Instead, the nebbishy Molecule Man & his homely g’friend save the universe.

Secret Wars II #4 of 9

Jim Shooter // Al Milgrom
October 1985
The Beyonder dabbles w/ romance, but since he’s omnipotent there’s no tension to his wooing. He also stumbles into Alpha Flight, where he rescues a heroine from a strange fate. This mag’s love object, MTV mutant Dazzler, isn’t given a personality, but she is granted cosmic awareness.
