So it's finally over, the very last issue of the event hits stands today (likely to be followed by a bunch of stupid tie-ins that don't count, no doubt).

So what did everyone think? Worth the wait? Tied up all loose ends? Left with more questions than answers?

I think the ending sux. Its ends too abruptly, kinda rushed? It makes you ask yourself "at the end of it what did the storyline contribute to the marvel universe?" ahem 'sell books' ahem

I've just finished reading the 9 issues through from start to finish and I have to put my hat in the liked it ring.

<<<<SPOILERS AHEAD>>>>

Since I remember reading the original Secret Wars many years ago, it's easy to see the parallels with this one, not in the details but in certain large sweeps - involvement of Beyonder(s), patchwork Battleworld, the Miracle Man, Doom becoming omnipotent, and his fall coming from doubt. It's a bit like the parallels between the first Star Wars movie and the latest one, some similar plot points but a new story nevertheless. I can imagine Hickman reading the original and thinking "there's some good stuff, some great ideas, but now, all these years later, we can do even better."

I thought the final confrontation between Victor and Reed was very well done, suited their characters and their history down to the ground. Reed's acknowledgement of Doom's accomplishment compared to his own and yet Doom's ultimate failure to fully capitalise on it is well reflected in the ending with Reed doing the one thing Victor could not, and would never do for his enemy.

The Nerdist review probably put it best. As a big Marvel world-changing event - fun while it lasted but it doesn't seem to have changed that much (so far anyway) except with Spiderman and the FF (who were also pretty much the only ones affected by the original Secret Wars). As an ultimate confrontation between Marvel's first hero and first villain - brilliant.

I gave this event a shot and read it all in one evening, and I gut to say I hate it. I did not like the story, the writing or the art as well. I just can not imagine why issue number 1 of this miniseries was number one at all. :hulk:
