Secret Wars was not Marvel's first effort in the realm of the limited series crossover. In 1982, Marvel introduced Marvel Super Heroes Contest of Champions. While the relative merits of the two series are certainly debatable, the release of Secret Wars in May of 1984 was extremely well-received by comic buyers. Each issue sold nearly three quarters of a million copies. Written by then Editor-In-Chief Jim Shooter, Secret Wars was an event that helped to define the direction of the Marvel Universe for years to come.
