Marvel Comics publishes four kinds of crisis crossover events:
The traditional event, comprised of a core limited series that runs between two and twelve issues in length, plus spinoffs and tie-ins with other titles. Examples: , Avengers vs. X-Men , Spider-Verse (2015).
Secret Wars The self-contained event, which is confined to a single title, without any associated spinoffs or tie-ins. Examples: (1984), Secret Wars , The Infinity Gauntlet .
Death of X Crossover events, which are spread over a variety of titles, in lieu of a core limited series. Examples: , Spider-Island , Battle of the Atom .
The Black Vortex The non-event publishing initiative, which aren't technically events, but share some sort of thematic connection that extends line-wide. They also tend to follow major traditional events, usually dealing with their aftermath to varying degrees over a year-long period. Examples: (after Dark Reign ), Secret Invasion (after Heroic Age ), Siege (after All-New, All-Different Marvel ).
