    Default Secret Wars 2015

    I wonder if we'll see any Alphans in any of these?

    Possibly Wildchild in the AoA one?

    We could see any number of Alphans in that one! (Even 0. Zero is still a number, right?)

    But there have been AoA Beaubiers and (iirc) Puck, Jeffries, and Langkowski.
    (I haven't tracked AoA since it first came out, so I could have added some and/or missed others.)

    Saw a few for past events such as Infinity Gauntlet, Planet Hulk,House of M, etc. are they new stories in those universes, reprints (doubt it), retcons, or all new tie-ins to Secret War (very likely this option?

    Based on the article Phil linked to, a combination of these two. Hmm... Except Infinity Gauntlet and (I'm pretty sure) Planet Hulk were both 616.

    OTOH, as a rule, I love alternate realities.

    I don't see how AF will have a part in this beyond cameos.

    Yeah, I kinda agree.
    On the other hand that is how AF began...

    I'd be happier with a cameo rather than nothing.

    I don't see how they'll get beyond Thunderdome.

    That's true... ish. AF began in a one-off issue of an ongoing series as a group of new characters trying to get one of their members back, not as part of the nth "big event" in a row with every established "hero" in the Marvel Universe fighting every other established "hero" in the Marvel Universe.
    BIG difference - to me anyway.

    Thanks, Phil!
    Egyptia - could that be the alternate reality in the issues of (original) New Warriors where the Sphinx took over?
    Killville and Arcadia - something to do with Arcade?
    Earth / Paradise / Utopia X will be in there somewhere, too. Maybe some of the Excalibur alternates. And Exiles.

    The other day I read about DC's new crossover, Convergence in CSN. It's about a villain who gathers pieces of all the DC alternate realities and puts them together on some distant planet to fight it out.

    The solicitation to the FCBD book:

    Prepare yourself for the final days of the Marvel Universe as you know it as the march to the biggest comic event of the year continues! From the ashes of a decimated cosmos rises… Battleworld! Amid the strange, patchwork realm, refugees from thousands of obliterated universes struggle for survival. Even if they can endure the horrors of Battleworld — the home they knew has been destroyed! Time has run out, and the opening salvo of Secret Wars has been fired. But can anything restore the Marvel Universe that once was?

    Hmmmmm....interesting. It is looking more and more likely it will be a reboot, but not 100% convinced
