Hours later, the foundation, Valeria contacts her team. She informs them that something isn’t right. She feels like she is being lied to. The subject changes as Alex informs her of a breakthrough. They finally found the source of God Doom’s power, and Valeria is standing on it. the news doesn’t end there as her team continues to inform her on more strange drones found on their land. 6 more. further studies suggests that these drones are looking for something. Valeria cant help but wonder. Who is building these things?

Somewhere inside battleworld, the drones have come home to their maker, Reed Richards, one from the 616 reality and the other, from the ultimate universe. These drones have been instrumental in collecting data. They now have a better understanding of this strange world and the full capabilities of Victor Von Doom, who now calls himself a god. The maker has set loose one of his porject who he calls the prophet. This man has gathered none believers that grew into an army, a legion of doom deniers who now marches towards his throne and the world tree. The maker seeks a plan to kill their foe, but Reed isn’t ready to consider that.

Our problem as I see it, he states, is determining how Victor came to possess such power. Reed Richards, our hero from 616, has a plan and he already got his best people working on it.

Castle doom, Miles Morales and Peter Parker arrives at the spot indicated to them by a device created by Reed Richards. They found the exact spot but nothing is here except a statue. It could be underground.

Actually, there’s a trapdoor, Valeria pops out behind the shadows. I found it earlier. You’re looking for the source, too, arnt you? Parker is shocked, but no spider sense. They are not in danger. He knows this kid, but things are different here and valeria has no clue as to who he is. When asked if she is coming with them, she tells the two spider heroes that she spent the last hour thinking about it. But she cant. At the end of the day, Valeria is just a kid and if she discovers that her father isn’t who he says he is, then well, that’s just too much for a kid to comprehend. Valeria allows them to pass but they must answer 1 question to keep her silence. Did you or anyone of your team kill Stephen strange? Parker replies. No, of course not.

Inside, the heroes found a blinding white room and a man parker identifies as Own Reece, the molecule man. Reece has information to share but he is hungry. Unfortunately, Parker doesn’t have any food but wait. Morales does. He brings out a hamburger from his pocket. The sight of a burger causes Reece to salivate. He must have that burger. Parker questions morales as to how he obtained a burger? Miles states that he got that burger from home, his home. Before the incursion.

So that’s an 8 year and three week old hamburger?

I don’t think suspended animation counts. O man, I don’t think he should eat that.

So good.

After he devoured that burger, Reece is presented with a question. where can they find the source of Doom’s power?

Reece states, o yes, you’re looking at him.

Castle Doom, meeting after Meeting, God doom grows weiry. He now meets with some of his barons. They bring news of a man who caused uprisings throughout battleworld known as the prophet.  This man raised an army large enough that entire kingdoms are bending to his will.  Apocalypse shares his council. Only the strong shall live. Power structures must be maintained. God doom is among us. Anyone who say otherwise is an offence. Only the loyal shall live. Kill the rest.

Doom agrees with his Baron, but instead of sending in his private police force of Thors, God doom demands that You, his loyal barons shall tend to this pretender and his mob, for doom is losing what little grace he still possesses.

The meeting adjurns and Baron sinister returns to speak to one of the heroes of earth 616. Captain marvel is his guest and the two of them will build an alliance to usurp dooms throne.

The hidden isle of agamotto, T’challa and Namor finally arrive at their destination. They brave through the world sea, the great leviathan horde, and the hidden isle itself to be able to reach Stephen Strange’s sanctuary. With the eye of agamotto, they gain access through. Suddenly, the face of Strange appears, but it is only a sentry. it prepares the deathtraps to tests the ex kings of atlantis and wakanda for being friends or foe. They pass the set of tests, so, the sentry offers them two of the most valuable artifacts owned by Stephen strange. The first is the siege courageous. This object of power can transport them anywhere they wish to go.

The second item is Stephen’s most precious possession, an item that might be the only thing on this world that can smite a god. Stephen strange presents an infinity gauntlet.

Elsewhere, a young franklin is tucked into bed by his mother Susan. He requests for a bedtime story, his favourite story. A story of the fantastic four. Susan recalls a time when there were four of them, her brother, Johnathan storm, their friend Ben Grimm, her father, Dr franklin storm and herself. They set on what they thought was going to be an incredible journey, but their ship crashed and they emerged with incredible power. They protected earth but one day, their world ended and this new world began. It was a cruel and dark world. War plagues every corner but there was hope. A brilliant and blinding light. It was franklin’s father, Victor von doom. He made a world from nothing, and he made a world that is everything. Dr Franklin Storm died before the lights arrival. But Johnny storm became the sun which brought light onto this wonderful world. And Ben, well Ben Grimm is a story for another day, for when you are older. The story ends and the mother kisses her son goodnight.

Elsewhere on the Shield, detention level, The thing Ben Grimm chats with their prisoner, a man found on the wall who calls himself Thanos. The mad titan informs Grimm that this world is not what it should be and that Ben’s services to God Doom is a sham. Where he came from, Grim is the closest friend of Doom’s greatest enemy. Ben has shamed him time and time again. Doom is a petty usurper of powers far grander than himself.  Doom convinced Johnny storm to be the sun and Ben Grimm to be on the wall, not for service to the people Doom watches over, but because god fears them.

Doom convinced you to live on your knees; he has beaten you as you lay there, He titan states. Are you just going to die here, or are you going to stand up?

With those words, Ben Grimm, the thing obliterates the Shield, the wall that separates the horrors and nightmares away from dooms land. Ben Grim made a decision, he will stand.

Secret Wars #6 Comic Book Review

Whats goin on guys, welcome to comic island, my name is joey and wholy cow this was a long issue. So many things happen and I wanna go over them with you guys.

So in the last issue, we saw a glimpse of the black swan finding her way to doom’s castle. That was such a huge tease and we saw where that led us. For those who don’t know, before the incursion, Doom was also a god known as rabum alal and his followers are these black swans sent through the multiverse to do his bidding. This swan is the only one left so it’s no surprise that she gives her full loyalty to doom. At one point, she says, I am home, my lord. That is so awesome, if you guys followed hickman’s new avengers run then you guys know what this woman went through and now she is finally here by her god’s side.There isn’t anyone in battleworld that would worship Doom as a god more than this swan in my opinion.

We got some great chemistry in this issue. A lot of characters are paired up such as the two Richards, the two spidermen, and we also got t’challa and namor. Heck even proxima midnight and Corvis glave are paired up, I guess. But lets discuss the two Richards. I feel the tension between these guys. I don’t think they ever met before but you got two sides of a coin. Ones a maniac and the other is a hero that only wants to find his family and protect his friends.

So shortly after, we get one of the best comedic relief segment I’ve read in the entire secret wars run. The conversation about the 8 year old hamburger between parker and morales was priceless. This is how I pictured parker and morales talking and johnathan hickman did a great job bringing that to life.

Secret Wars #6 Review/Recap. Fall Of The Wall!

Then we get a pairing between t’challa and namor. If you have been following comics ever since AVX then you will remember how Namor destroyed wakanda. These two has been at each other’s throats ever since. T’challa even did something I never thought he would do. I believe it was near the end of hickman’s new avengers run, we saw t’challa purposely sending Namor to his death. That was so cold and I loved it. But this is the one thing I didn’t like about this issue. Their alliance is too tamed for me. I really enjoyed their rivalry and I want it to continue. You got the king of Atlantis warring with the king of Wakanda. Two royalty figures at each other’s throats. That makes for some interesting stories. But they seem to have barried the hatchet. Maybe now that t’challa has the gauntlet, the first thing he would do is torture namor. Sighhh one can only dream.

We got a huge insight into battleworld’s past and God doom’s family. So susan tells a bedtime story which feels more like history of what happened. From how she explains it, I believe that this susan storm, johny storm and ben grimm are from a random universe where their 4th member is their father franklin storm. This isn’t the members of the fantastic four we know so that begs the question, where are the original fantastic four, where are reeds true family.

So at the end, we finally found out where the thing is this entire time. But remember guys, this isn’t the thing from the 616. Over at the shield tie in, we saw the thing but I never gave it a second thought. This world has so many incarnations of different characters that it gets confusing. But anyway, I loved it how thanos convinces Ben Grimm to leave the wall. If you haven’t done so yet, I recommend picking up the shield tie in. it goes over the conversation with Grimm and thanos in detail.

This is somewhat of a spoiler so if you are planning to read the shield, turn down your volume for 8 or 9 seconds. Ok you still with me? Well as you may know, grimm stood up and left. But in the shield tie in, we find out that Grim is the shield. He covers miles of the wall. He is everywhere and nowhere.  He gets enlightened by a weapon developed by de vinchi and because of that, he can see that thanos isn’t lying. We now have a pissed off Ben Grimm who knows that Doom is a false god. He is also marching towards castle doom saying its clobbering time. that’s soo good. So I hope that makes it a bit more clear for you guys who don’t read the tie ins.

With everything going on, Doom is going to have a really rough time. It seems that everyone is gunning for him. The wall is breached and you got 3 different forces marching to kill everything. So for Dr Doom fans, this story arc is basically for you. Secret wars is basically a story about Dr Doom. I never made a top 10 villains of all time but  I would like to think that doom is on there. From reading this series, Dr Doom would have climbed a couple spots for sure.

But that’s just my opinion, now I wanna hear from you. What do you think about secret wars issue 6, and how do you feel about Doom after reading this series so far? Please let me know in the comments below. thank you so much for watching and as always, please like subscribe and I’ll see you next time in another secret wars video.
