Today's Secrets Of The Marvel Universe – Secret Wars, Scarlet Witch, Ultimate, Contest Of Champions, Black Knight And Uncanny Avengers (SPOILERS)

We've been looking at the end of Secret Wars, the eight month gap and the nature of the reality of the All New All Different Marvel Universe most Wednesdays… so what's going on today?

We've seen that there is something wrong with magic in the new universe, over in Doctor Strange. And the launch of Scarlet Witch #1 only mirrors that.


The Ultimates #2 continues with Al Ewing's setting out the nature of reality as he team attempt to solve Galactus. We get on-panel confirmation that Galactus is from the Sixth iteration of reality, just as last month's Old God was from the 5th and the current version is the 8th.  They called themseves part of the sixth infinity…

And  bringing more of the ISO-8 with him, the molecule that only exists in this form in the Eighth Infinity… IMG_0034

While over in Contest Of Champions, Al Ewing writes them continuing to visit other realities (which definitely do seem to exist in the All-New All-Different, just in case you hadn't been reading The Radioactive Spider-Gwen or Web Warriors… and the place they go to?



Ultimate End – the Secret Wars spinoff yet to conclude, that may see a route out of the Battleworld for a number of characters. Earth 61610 – is that the version of the 616 universe that Doom created to merge with the Ultimate 610? Either way, somehow, it survives…

As for those who don't survive the Secret Wars


There goes Thanos in Secret Wars #8. Possibly. It's all a bit up in the air post Secret Wars, isn't it? Though we do see what happened to make Black Knight seek the isolation of the Weirdworld so much…


While Uncanny Avengers continues to pour salt in the mutants/Inhumans wound. With Rogue dismissing the lives of inhumans…


While the big bad dismisses the lives of mutants…


A two state-of-reality solution, anyone?
