Spoilers follow if you have not been following Marvel’s Avengers/New Avengers to the final issues or Secret Wars #1. Be advised ..
As it was explained or as I understood it and Captain America and The Mighty Avengers #8 preview confirms; when an Incursion is pending, if one Earth is sacrificed and a collision is prevented, both Universes are spared.
So, in Secret Wars #1 we see the last two Earths colliding (616 and 1610)
it’s still inferred that dozens of universes that the Illuminati and the Cabal and Ultimate Reed Richards for that matter saved by destroying the alternate Earth should still exist. So while far less infinite there should still be a multiverse remaining behind with alternate versions of Kree, Skrull, Spartax and Sh’iar and any non-Earth based species. Yes?
But the implication is that ALL that exists now is Battleworld and Beyond. Does Battleworld exist within one of these spared Universes or in Beyond?
I know answers will still be revealed. We will still learn what becomes of Doom’s (as well as Dr Strange’s and Molecule Man’s) stand against the Beyonders. We can see that Doom might have made a miscalculation that spontaneously shortened the decay of the Multiverse to two dozen remaining Universes.
Did Doom accidentally destroy a bunch of universes that the combined efforts explained above had spared?
I’m a bit confused.
