Footnotes:

  1. The entirety of Secret Wars takes place between pages 2 & 3 of Thor #341. In #341, there were three whited out panels – panels which were provided the following month in the letter column of #342.
  2. These two sets of three issues all happen at around the same time.
  3. This story depicts an expanded version of the origin of Titania seen in Secret Wars #3.
  4. The vast majority of this issue takes place at this point.
  5. Takes place entirely within Secret Wars #4
  6. Appears to take place around the time of Secret Wars #6
  7. Jumps around a bit chronologically, but after Secret Wars #9 is the best fit.
  8. Takes place entirely within Secret Wars #10
  9. Iron Man returns with the Avengers.
  10. An epilogue, but probably the single best issue of the whole storyline.
  11. The Thing remained on Battleworld for 12 issues of his own title before returning to Earth.
  12. The Thing finally returned to Earth in this issue.
