Quote:Secret Wars hasn't wiped the slate clean.
Quote:Marvels pitch for Secret Wars was that everything that happened before would come to an end, and the world we were left with would be one that was similar to what occurred before but essentially a different reality. All those famous stories you read as a kid still happened, but they happened in a universe that no longer exists.
That said, the company are sending out confusing messages with some of their relaunched titles. Cap America #2 for example has Maria Hill referring directly to the 'incursions', which she shouldn't have any recollection of if this were now a different reality.
This confusion I suppose is a side effect of making such a mess of Secret Wars. No one knows what happened to the Marvel universe in the end because they haven't finished the damn story yet!
The confusion seems to be between Battleworld and the restarted "616" universe. For the period of Battleworld, the universe no longer existed. That's it. After Battleworld is destroyed and the universe restarts, things are exactly the same as they were, with just a few more veggies added to the stew (like Niles and The Maker and Weirdworld, etc.).
Whatever happens at the end of Secret Wars #9 (we'll see next month), people are able to recreate a perfect 616. Maybe someone finds a saved backup stored on a universal hard drive. Who knows. Maybe Franklin does it.
City of Heroes is BACK!
