The Beyonder! He rescued the Hulk and destroyed the New Mutants, he wrestled the Thing and made a deal with Mephisto, he created Kurse and Thundersword and a tower of gold! Doctor Strange tried to teach him; Dazzler tried to romance him! The Avengers wanted to recruit him, Daredevil to sue him, and Puma and Deadpool just wanted him dead! Hero, villain, force of nature and deus ex machina all in one: the Beyonder! For good or ill, he was one of the most powerful agents of change in the eighties, and now you can see all of his work -- all at once -- in this mammoth Omnibus!

"Was it worth it? To get a sample of some of Marvel's best runs in history? To get a HUGE book containing no less then 45 comics? To get some never seen Sal Buscema work? I would definitely say ... YES!!! So if you are and older fan who want to remember the "good old days" ... or if you are a newer fan who wants a sample of what has been done before in an era long since past ... I would strongly suggest this book to you." -- Pierre Villeneuve
"Secret Wars II doesn't always feel like your typical comic book. Instead, it gives off the feeling of a character study with a real philosophical edge. How does an all powerful being, a god, find satisfaction? The Beyonder has the power to do anything he wants, create any life he wants, manipulate the feelings of anyone he chooses, yet he is clearly unhappy. [The story] holds up well enough ... however, I would recommend the Secret Wars II Omnibus instead, which contains the crossovers to deliver a more fulfilling experience." -- Frankie Torres
"Secret Wars II is also the story of another all-powerful being ... the Molecule Man. Short, meek, unassuming, but blessed with powers almost akin to the Beyonder ... his struggles to maintain a balance and equilibrium between himself and the world around him serve as a signpost and a warning to The Beyonder. I can see his appeal to me when I was younger ... but there is a tremendous amount of nuance writers Jim Shooter and Roger Stern bring to the character that help him resonate even with my adult self." -- Brett Beach
"A comprehensive read of Secret Wars II, with all the core books, plus all the auxiliary books, and also several books that finish up the line after the fact. The book is an interesting compilation of how humans act, and why they do what they do, under the magnifying glass of a supposed omnipotent, omniscient being." -- Quinton Baran
"There were some really great stories within Secret Wars II. The Human Torch one was one of the most touching comic stories ever written." -- Wayne Simmons
