Secret Wars II

Secret Wars II is a nine-issue comic book limited series and crossover published by Marvel Comics from 1985 to 1986. The series was a sequel to 1984's Secret Wars, though unlike its predecessor it occurred on Earth and took place simultaneously in other Marvel comic books, enabling tie-in crossover stories within multiple issues of various titles.

The broad plot of the series involves an enigmatic, all-powerful, god-like creature called the Beyonder who comes to Earth in search of enlightenment and then inevitably comes into conflict with the planets' superhumans.

Intrigued by what he has witnessed during the first Secret Wars, the Beyonder comes to Earth to walk among humans and study them and learn of human desire firsthand. He creates a human body for himself; originally this body resembles an amalgam of parts of various superbeings. Throughout the course of the series, the demon Mephisto seeks to steal his powers or to destroy him to win the favor of Death. The Beyonder ultimately dies when he tried to create for himself a mortal human body that could retain his omnipotence; although he was on the verge of succeeding, he is killed in the process by the Molecule Man. The Beyonder's near-limitless power is returned to the now-empty "Beyond-Realm", where it forms a Big Bang and created a new universe.

Coming soon on Beyond
