I assume this issue takes place between the two Secret Wars as it ends with the Beyonder's arrival on Earth in time for Secret Wars II and includes characters reacting for the first time to the Beyonder taking a physical form which we also saw in Secret Wars II. However, IIRC, didn't he try on a few different looks before settling on the one he uses here and throughout the remainder of SWII? Doesn't that mean that he gave himself physical form, used it for a while, tried on a few different looks and eventually came back to the one he started with? Looks like someone didn't do their research...

Also, can anyone tell me why Iron Man was absent from this issue? It comes up but nothing beyond "we can't get in touch with him" is ever established? What was Tony Stark busy with circa 1985? Was this his big binge?

IIRC this was just prior to his return to the WCA in the red and silver armor. I would imagine he's out of touch because he is either finishing kicking the habit or getting ramped up for a comeback.
