What’s the best way to tie the disparate threads of the MCU together ahead of Secret Wars?

As we all know, the MCU currently feels pretty sprawling with a lot of isolated characters that haven't crossed paths with each other yet and a lot of dangling plot threads.

With Secret Wars on the way, what do you guys think is the best way to tie all these disparate threads together so that the characters have some camaraderie and established history together before Secret Wars arrives?

Some groupings are obvious: the young characters are headed towards a Young Avengers team up, the supernatural characters headed towards a Midnight Sons team up, the street level characters headed towards a Defenders team up, etc.

But what about other characters that don't have an obvious spot on a team other than a catchall "Avengers" roster, like Scarlet Scarab, Jane Foster, Clea, etc.? What will the conceit be to bring all these more fringe characters together?

Also, with so many teams forming, will they all stay mostly independent from each other until Secret Wars where they all get sucked into Battleworld as disorganized clusters? What's the best way to have the various teams (New Avengers, Young Avengers, Thunderbolts, Midnight Sons, Fantastic Four, Eternals, New Guardians of the Galaxy, Defenders, etc.) crossover before the climax of the saga?

    In the trailer for deadpool and wolverine he calls himself marvels messiah. What if the events of Loki season 2 has set up for a more stable existence of a multiverse where variants can exist without causing incursions. Deadpool could use this new structure of time to ‘prune’ and fix any plot hole or inconsistencies that remain within the MCU, Fox and Sony timelines and bring them altogether as one. By helping finish the storylines he would be a real hero among heroes.

    Fantastic 4 should have a post-credit scene where Deadpool comes across the symbiote that was left behind by Eddie Brock which would lead into TH Spider-Man getting it in Secret Wars.

    Let the mcu die and start anew. Deadpool 3 would work well as a platform to do it from.
