Secret Wars's Weird Shield Things

As you may or may not know, Secret Wars started out as a toyline, and the miniseries was only made to promote the toyline. The action figures came with a pretty odd accessory: a shield that displayed one of several images.

These shields didn't factor into the comic book storyline at all, so it's anybody's guess what the intention was. Fortunately, during Marvel's NEW Secret Wars event, Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #2 (June 2015) gave us the answer...sort of!

  1. I can accept that use of the toy shield...not that I ever felt they needed to be used in Marvel continuity...
