      This three part episode is based off the Secret Wars mini-series where the Beyonder brings a number of superheroes and villains to "Battleworld", a planet he created in a distant galaxy. In the comics there were four factions. The Superhero faction which consisted of Captain America, Captain Marvel II, Hawkeye, Hulk, Human Torch, Iron Man (Jim Rhodes was substituting for Tony Stark at the time), Mister Fantastic, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman (Julia Carpenter), Thing, Thor, and Wasp. The Mutant faction consisted of Colossus, Cyclops, Lockheed the Dragon, Magneto, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Rogue, Storm, and Wolverine. The Supervillain faction consisted of Absorbing Man, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, Enchantress, Kang the Conqueror, Klaw, Lizard, Molecule Man, Titania II, Ultron, Volcana, and the Wrecking Crew. Beyonder (when his powers were stolen by Doctor Doom) and Galactus represented their own side since they were both Cosmic Entities.
