Secret Wars

I've been reading a lot about the secret wars while doing research for other posts so today I decided to find out about them. I haven't read the comics yet but i'm planning on doing so soon and I can only encourage people to do so.
For those who don't really get the whole 'different universes' stuff it might be confusing.

What I found out is that the comic book series was released in 2015 but is actually a series from way back in 1984. The story is modernized and a few different touches were applied but the roots of the story are the same.
It takes place on a planet called Battleworld. The planet is divided in territories in which heroes live. People from all kinds of universes live on this planet. This means that different versions of the same person live on the same planet.
For instance, there are several Tony Starks in Battle world, and in the Kingdom of Manhattan both Tony from earth 1610 and Tony from earth 616 walk the same streets.

As the title gives away not all these characters get along. I'm excited to read it because I think it's interesting to see some versions of the same hero face off against each other.
