Marvel Master Reading Order Part 3

Here we see the birth of large scale crossover events.  Contest of Champions is Marvel’s first Limited Series and serves as a sort of prototype for the line-wide crossovers to follow.  The original Secret Wars event is wildly successful and its less successful sequel comes out a year later.  The X-Men line expands with the introduction of X-Factor and the New Mutants.  The popular villain Apocalypse is introduced and we see the beginnings of the symbiote that will go one to become Venom.
