    Avengers #183 May 1979
    "The Redoubtable Return of Crusher Creel!" Part 1 of 2.
    Ms. Marvel and the Falcon join the Avengers! And it won't be long before they see action!
    Down on the docks, Clint Barton is having lunch at a local diner when an angry patron bumps into him!

    It's Crusher Creel! Where did he come from? Forget that question.
    The better one is: who's going to stop him? Hawkeye makes a quick phone call to Avengers Mansion,


    and the battle is joined shortly thereafter! The Absorbing Man just wants to escape to South America,
    but Earth's Mightiest Heroes stand in his way! Meanwhile, Wanda and Pietro begin their cross-atlantic voyage to Europe with Django Maximoff.

    Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #1 May 1984
    "The War Begins!"
    After having entered a mysterious construct that appeared in Central Park in their own respective magazines
    (see Amazing Spider-Man #251, Uncanny X-Men #180, Iron Man #181, Incredible Hulk #294,
    Thing #10, Thor #341, Avengers #242, Captain America #292,
    and Fantastic Four #295)
    ,
    many of Earth's heroes are instantaneously gathered together in a giant construct in space.
    The heroes are Captain America, Thor, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Wasp, the Fantastic Four (minus Invisible Woman),
    Colossus, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Rogue, Storm, Wolverine, Lockheed, Magneto, Spider-Man and Hulk.
    They are unsure as to what or who had brought them to this place.
    They introduce themselves to each other. They then realize they are not alone.

    Across the way another construct appears housing the villains of Earth, according to Professor X's mental probings.
    One thing the heroes do not understand, however, is why Magneto appeared in their construct and not the villains'.
    In the other construct, the villains are just as confused as the heroes. After the villains introduce themselves to one another,
    both ships are hurtled through space to watch a galaxy be destroyed and a new planet be created.

    This causes both parties to realize that a very powerful being has summoned them all.
    The villains begin to bicker with each other and a fight breaks out.

    Ultron tries to destroy them all but is knocked into Galactus.
    The villains are all amazed when Galactus simply drains the energy from Ultron,
    then goes back to staring at the stars as if everyone is beneath him.

    Suddenly, a bright light appears in space and a voice announces who has summoned them all: the Beyonder.

    He tells them that he can do anything imaginable and then orders them to battle each other,
    promising the winning side will receive whatever they want. Galactus refuses to obey the voice
    and tries to fly towards the light to force the Beyonder to give him the power to remove his eternal hunger for planetary energy.
    Doctor Doom follows Galactus and, when they get close enough, the light diminishes and they are thrown back.
    The constructs are then sent to the newly-constructed planet and the two groups of fighters placed on the planet.
    The heroes again question why Magneto is on their side,
    and begin fighting over if they should defeat him or try to use his help.
    Magneto, however, feels that he is "above" most of the heroes, and uses his magnetism to fly away.
    The heroes then decide Captain America to be the leader of their group.

    Meanwhile, Galactus and Doctor Doom are seen on the planet surface as well after being blasted back by the powerful light.
    Galactus is unconscious as Doctor Doom returns to the rest of the villains and tries to convince
    them to help him steal the Beyonder's powers instead of going along with the Beyonder's game.
    The villains think Doom is simply afraid of playing the Beyonder's game after being shot back by the light,
    and Doom is disgusted at their simple minds and takes off in a vehicle to seek out counsel with Mister Fantastic.
    Kang uses the grounded construct's weapons and shoots down Doom's vehicle.
    The heroes see it go down and move to investigate.

    Finding Doctor Doom lying in the rubble, Captain America tries to help him to his feet.
    Doom is unable to tolerate the heroes' pity and he attacks them in frustration, before fleeing.
    Iron Man warns the heroes they are about to be attacked and the villains unleash the first assault on the final page.

    Avengers #184 Jun 1979
    "Death on the Hudson!" Part 2 of 2.
    Crusher Creel, the Absorbing Man, was trying to sneak away to a small South American country.
    However, the Avengers have thwarted that ambition, and now he squares off against Earth's mightiest heroes!

    They tussle, and finally Iron Man gets on his back and siphons off most of the electrical power running through him.

    Weaker, but still powerful, Creel tries to get the upper hand, but Iron Man judo throws him into a warehouse.
    Ms. Marvel and Beast go in pursuit while Iron Man flies into the upper atmosphere to discharge excess energy.

    Back at the mansion, Gyrich is wondering what's taking Captain America so long to recruit Falcon. They finally arrive,
    but Jarvis informs them of the Absorbing Man battle and they rush off to the sounds of Gyrich complaining about paperwork to be finished.

    They arrive just in time to see the Beast seemingly having captured Absorbing Man.
    Unfortunately, Absorbing Man touches Beast, making himself as agile and throwing Beast off him.
    Cap throws his shield, which Beast quickly explains was a bad idea!
    The now 'secret super-strong alloy' Absorbing Man looks mean, but Ms. Marvel isn't phased.
    Iron Man joins the battle, but surprisingly his blows do nothing, and Creel clocks him.

    He grabs Sandy again and runs for the dock, but the ship has already left!
    The Avengers pursue, and Creel comes fist to fist with Vision!
    Vision lets Creel absorb his powers, specifically his etherealness, and Creel falls through the dock before he can become human again!
    Seeing the departing ship, he starts swimming towards it, but he can't catch up, and the Avengers are close behind him.
    In resignation, Absorbing Man turns himself into water and lets the tides disperse him!

    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.
