Synopsis for "Secret War III"Edit

From his base on the Moon, the Watchman decides to stage a third Secret War as a counter-feint for DC's mega-cross-overs. But the Watchman has a hard time hiring a villain for this goal.

  • The credits in the story Secret War III include "You: The Reader". That same story mentions that the "Digressing Cosmos", a clear reference to DC Comics, "is staging the Legendary Crisis of the Infinite Millenium," later called in the story "Infinite Legends of the Millenium Crisis." This is a reference to then-recent DC crossover events: Crisis on Infinite Earths (1985), Legends (1986-1987) and Millennium (1988); notice that Secret War III was published in 1988.


  • The advertisement of "Yubewasted" in page 17 is a parody of a similar advertisement of supposed self-defense technique Yubiwaza that was found in some Marvel issues (e.g. Uncanny X-Men #7, 1964).
