Top Ten Battle World character count down + Secret Wars issue Summaries

Now to start of my post on the Secret Wars, I present you guys with my Top Ten Battle World character count down:

10 Sheriff Strange: Doc Strange is the head of Doom's law enforcement of  Battle World, walking a fine line in being Doom's enforcer  controlling the Thors and having a secret agenda of taking  Doom  down when the time is right.


9 Valeria Richards: She doesn't remember her true origins, being the daughter of Reed Richards, but  during the Secret Wars Doom stole Reed's life and family posing as her true father. Now she is smart as a tack  and she knows something isn't right with Battle World, things just don't add up.

8 Mr. Sinister: This X-Villain actual plays a relevant role in Battle World being a Baron of his own Realm, but he's always up to no good.

7 Apocalypse: He's my favorite X-Villain ever, and he's also a Baron of the  Realm of the Age of Apocalypse, but unlike Sinister he's surprisingly loyal to Doom.

6 Age of Apocalypse Kitty Pryde: Now she was a spy for Apocalypse, and her mission was  Doom and his inner circle, but she's was caught by Valeria Richards so she becomes her secret agent to find certain artifacts.

5 Blackbolt: The Blackbolt we get in Attilan Rising is really interesting because he wasn't exposed to the Terrigen mist and he's a rebel that wants to take down Doom.


4 Inferno Colossus: He's the main character of the Inferno tie in, and he's cool as hell when he gets his hands on the  Soul Sword.

3 Ultimate Thor: I loved the Thors tie in, and this particular Thor kicked butt as a police detective out to find a serial murderer.

2 Maestro: This crossover made me rediscover this classic villain, and this guy has no limits to his ambition in taking over the battle world. 


1 Doom: This as one of the most interesting incarnations of Doom ever and it makes this crossover worth to read to see how Doom would  act like a god, full of contradictions.

Marvel Universe has ended the multiverse has  finally  collapsed, but Victor Von Doom after defeating the Beyonders  he creates a world from fragments of what was left from the collapsing universes creating Battle World, and becoming it's god.
