    Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #2 Jun 1984
    "Prisoners of War!"
    On the surface of Battleworld, a planet created by the Beyonder in the previous issue the heroes
    gathered by the Beyonder are attacked by the villains the god-like being brought there as well.

    The villains, armed with weapons found in a fortress on Battleworld,
    managed to get the element of surprise and began winning the battle against the heroes.
    Elsewhere Doctor Doom flies across the landscape recalling the events that brought them here.
    He manages to find Galactus, who attempted to attack the Beyonder earlie,r only to be cast down to the surface of Battleworld.
    Doom attempts to get Galactus' attention, but the world devourer merely rises from the ground and walks off,
    ignoring the villain as though he were nothing more than a gnat. With his attempt to ally himself with Galactus a complete failure,
    Doom decides to follow through on his alternate plan. Returning to the massive fortress that the villains had commandeered for themselves
    before leaving to fight the heroes, Doom blasts past the security defenses and gains access inside where the inert body of Ultron is being stored.

    Back at the battle, the heroes manage to regain the upper hand and send the villains in retreat.
    However they manage to capture the Enchantress, Kang, Bulldozer, Piledriver and Thunderball, as prisoners.
    The heroes then go seeking shelter and find an abandoned fortress for themselves where they can detain their prisoners in stasis.

    As they are exploring the facility, Colossus notices that Lockheed went missing in battle and thinks about how his girlfriend,
    Kitty Pride would be upset if they do not return home with the little dragon. After the villains are contained,
    the heroes begin looking around and are surprised to find the fortress meets their every need but is completely abandoned.
    Captain America soon calls a meeting together and begins formulating a plan to capture their foes.
    He sends Thor, the Human Torch and Iron Man out on patrol while the rest of the group finds lodging and food.
    Elsewhere on Battleworld, at yet another fortress, the mutant terrorist known as Magneto has found his own base of operations.
    Watching over the alien landscape before him, Magneto wonders if anyone else feels
    the same sense of destiny that he does regarding the events which are about to unfold.

    Meanwhile, the uncaptured villains return to their hideout to find Doom waiting there for them.
    Still thinking him a traitor for previously abandoning them instead of fighting the heroes, they are about to attack
    when they are suddenly blasted aside by Ultron, who has been reactivated and reprogrammed to be loyal to Doctor Doom.
    Outgunned, the remaining villains have no choice but to follow Doom and allow him to be their leader.
    Doctor Doom then begins sucking up to the Molecule Man, easily one of the most powerful people out of them all.
    When Doctor Octopus turns Doom's attention to Galactus, they pull the world devourer up
    on a monitor screen revealing him to be standing at the top of a peak glowing with energy.
    Doom assures Octopus that plans are in motion so that they will triumph and orders Octavius to rest.
    Octopus complies but suspects that Doom will eventually betray them.
    At that moment, Magneto secretly infiltrates the heroes' base while his opponents are trying to relax.
    She-Hulk and the Wasp discuss all the things left behind on Earth,
    while Cyclops and Mister Fantastic lament about being separated from their wives,

    while Spider-Man and the Torch spend time together.
    Suddenly, Spider-Man's Spider-Sense goes off, warning him that Magneto is in the power plant of their headquarters.
    While he web-slings off to confront the threat, the Torch fires off a Fantasti-Flare to summon the rest of the heroes.

    When the other heroes arrive, Spider-Man has been subdued and all the heroes combined are less than a match for Magneto.
    As the Master of Magnetism dumps machinery on them and escapes, the Wasp tries to chase after him.
    Magneto responds by wrapping her up in metal and taking her prisoner.
    Getting free, the Thing tries to chase after their foe but suddenly changes back into human form, much to everyone's surprise.
    Before they can go after Magneto, Captain America calls the rest of the heroes over to the monitor room where he
    and the Hulk have pulled up an image of Galactus. Cap warns the others that they have bigger concerns to deal with right now.

    Uncanny X-Men #182 Jun 1984
    Rogue is flying back to the United States following the X-Men's return from Battleworld ahead of the others

    to check on the remaining X-Men that were left on Earth, and the New Mutants. Rogue arrives at the mansion

    and begins checking the answering machine. She finds a panicked call from Madelyne Pryor who was calling to tell the X-Men
    that her husband, Scott Summers had gone missing. Rogue knows that he was transported to Battleworld with them
    and presumes that he was returned to her when they were all returned home.
    The next message is from Colonel Rossi a SHIELD agent who is a colleague of Professor Xavier.
    Rossi has confirmed one of their suspicions. His call is cut off when someone gets the jump on him. Rogue flies off to save him,
    missing an important message from Illyana Rasputin telling that the White Queen had
    kidnapped Kitty and Doug Ramsey and that she and the New Mutants were going to rescue her.

    Aboard the SHIELD helicarrier, Rossi is being roughly interrogated for answers to why he was caught looking up information about the Hellfire Club.
    One of these interrogators, a spy working of the Inner Circle, goes back to report to Sebastian Shaw and confirms his identity.
    Shaw orders him to eliminate Rossi before he is visited by a mental projection of the White Queen who informs
    him that she has the New Mutants under her thrall and asks if he would like to see Xavier's novice students.

    Meanwhile, Rogue manages to break aboard the SHIELD helicarrier by flicking a nickel into it's radar bay with her super strength.
    Breaking in, she then trashes some of the security systems closing off blast doors so that the SHIELD operatives do not have an easy time stopping her.
    She manages to get to Rossi just before the Inner Circle spy can assassinate him.
    When she tries to revive the heavily beaten Rossi, she begins talking in a different voice that speaks of a long time friendship.
    Rossi, barely conscious recognizes the voice but cannot believe he is hearing it.

    Rogue then manages to escape the Helicarrier and smashes a number of fighter jets that are deployed to try and stop her.
    Rogue brings Rossi to a home that she believes as her parents summer home located in Cape Cod Massachusetts.
    Rogue prepares Rossi a meal and when he awakens to eat, he finds that as he questions Rogue she has the memories of Carol Danvers.
    Rossi then calls her on it, watching as she flips from personality to personality from trying to sort out her memories;
    this causes her to burst out of the house and tumble down onto the beach near the home.
    There she is haunted by more of Carol's memories of her childhood and adult life.

    She realizes that when she absorbed Carol Danver's powers she must have taken her memories as well as the emotions that go along with them.

    When Rossi goes down to check on her, she reveals to him what he did, a revelation that angers and horrifies him.
    When she attempts to atone for it by telling him that she is Carol in all the ways that matter,
    he rejects her offer of love striking her and walking away -- telling her that he can't bring himself to kill her for what she's done.

    While back aboard the SHIELD helicarrier, Nick Fury questions the Hellfire Club spy, unaware that he is a double agent.
    The spy tells Fury that Rogue was responsible for the attack on the helicarrier earlier.
    With her identity confirmed, Fury puts out a call to all SHIELD agents to bring in Rogue and use deadly force if necessary.

    Uncanny X-Men #245 Jun 1989
    In orbit above Earth, an alien coalition prepares to launch its invasion of the planet
    as an archivist discovers humanity's success against other alien foes.

    In Australia, a morose Havok observes his teammates through the town's computer system

    before getting into an argument with Storm and Wolverine over their use.
    Suspecting what worked for the women would help the men as well, Wolverine suggests a boys night out.

    In space, the invasion leader is shown the Jean Bomb, a weapon in the form of a red-headed woman with the power to destroy all bonds.
    Just then, the archivist tries to warn the leader about Earth, but is gunned down for getting too close.

    In Sydney, Wolverine leads the male X-Men into a bar, where Longshot proceeds to dance with all the women while the rest get drunk.
    Eventually, they're drawn outside by the sound of the invasion attacking the city.

    Most of the city's denizens seem unperturbed by the presence of the invaders,
    with the mayor even offering his seat to the leader in order to finally go on vacation.

    At the bar, Colossus gets into a brawl with a group of shock troops,
    while Longshot is accosted by a team of winged female commandos whom he eventually charms.
    Infuriated by the failures of his forces, the leader orders the detonation of the Jean Bomb
    as Wolverine bluffs his way to a win in a game of poker against the strike force's commander.

    Outside, the leader's ship departs as it prepares to drop the bomb, but Havok blasts it, destroying the ship and the weapon, ending the invasion.
    The X-Men return home, all the better for their night out.
    Meanwhile, in Kentucky, Tessa investigates a massacre at a Shaw Industries facility, and learns that Donald Pierce has escaped.

    NOTE: This issue is a parody of the "Invasion" storyline DC did around the same time.
