Firstly, this title has nothing to do with the Secret Wars limited series from the mid-80s. What we have instead is a cunningly woven tale of conspiracy, intrigue and international terrorism all rendered in beautiful painted art. Nick Fury wants to bring down the Latverian government, the US administration won't help and so he forms his own army consisting of Captain America, Daredevil, Wolverine, Luke Cage and Spider-Man! The events of this story were supposed to occur before New Avengers #1, but the title was plagued with such significant delays during its original release, that it is now set much later.
