Even More Secrets From The Battleworld

In our third article in this series, (part one and two here), we continue to look further ahead at what secrets the Battleworld of Secret Wars still holds.


The great god Doom believes mutants to be a blight on the world, doing his best impersonation of Isaac Perlmutter.

So in X-Topia, featuring the continuance of the X-Tinction Agenda storyline in Genosha, he will not allow any outside help to deal with the mutant virus affecting the population.

And in the Sentinel Territories, he supports the internment camps of their anti-mutant government.

We learnt this week of Arcade's gladiatorial pits in Planet Hulk. Well, it is used to put all sorts of people across the Battleworld against each other, including a rebuilt Thunderbolt Ross against the denizens of Greenland, and surrounded by chained up Marvel zombies to keep the players playing….

And what about the barons? Well Scott Summers may be baron of Inferno, after deposing Madylene Pryor, but Phoenix, Rachel Grey is baron of X-Topia.

While Maestro, barn of Dystopia, has a Groot potted plant as a trophy.

James Rhodes is the Thor from Technopolis, with Baron Tony Stark. Baron for now…
