Reread 2020: The best parts are Dr. Doom & Galactus having a seeming character arc and also being a mysterious cosmic being, respectively. Most of the other villains are fodder for battle scenes and like most of the heroes, they're mostly one-dimensional, probably because this series was a 12-month toy commercial. There are a few funny moments featuring Spider-Man & the symbiote alien costume that will be explained in his ongoing. Magneto doesn't get the respect from Shooter that Claremont built. Maybe the best thing to come out of this is what how some of the monthlies were impacted, even if for a while. Zeck should not draw Wolverine & a few other characters, and many designs are lacking in vision needed to pull off a story of this scale.
Not Marvel’s best.
Here’s the recipe:
Take 2001: A Space Odyssey, subtract all the parts that people can understand, add 3 parts clichés, mix in some of the worst artwork of X-Men ever drawn, and a dash of interesting plot developments and you have Secret Wars.
How many times can people who are dwarfed by a giant creature be described as “gnats”, How often can we believe that Dr. Doom is afraid to destroy the universe in his sleep. Is the WASP really that vain about her looks?
I just wasn’t buying it. Except for the fact that I did buy it…thankfully used and half price. But I do intend on keeping SW mostly for the fact I want to own a copy every X-Men story ever written.
