Previous Post

I just finished it and was surprised not to be the last one to the party. I enjoyed it, although a little bitter sweet, this being the end (at least for Ewing).

I would love to see more of Monica and the good Doctor in the future, perhaps with their own new team. While I understand some people's feelings that the scope of this book was too large and dealt with too many abstract concepts I felt it worked and didn't mind having to go back and reread it a few times to make sense of it. At least I put it down feeling I had earned my $3.99 price of admission. And sadly there are few books I can say that about, month in and month out, with any sort of consistency.

Thanks Al for a fun, thoughtful ride.

I don't remember ultimate-Hulk ever being shown as anywhere near as strong as the 616 counterpart. The power levels in the Ult-verse were dialed down quite a bit.
Now I only skimmed most of the later Ult-verse garbage, wouldn't surprise me if there was massive power inflation along the way.

Ewing still has to follow editorial mandate.
It's such a &^%$ing shame, tho. Seriously, Secret Empire did nothing but hold back the whole sense of scale of this, while the ending felt extremely rushed.

These were the multiverses before Eternity. The sixth multiverse was where galactus came from. So they were long dead before secret war but guess what anon? Just like the first firmanent Everything lives.

-All changes was just temporary Ewings changes only.
-Non restored multiverse and celestials being destroyed wasn't. And secret wars folded in characters where they can't screw up canon much.
-Nip, tuck and tweak as Axel said.
-Tony restored the other eternity's and super-flow but not the multiverse as seperate. Inbetweener is still gone and shapers still a ghost and Galan is still the light bringer.
-Compromise of old and new status qou.

"As above, so below" is one of the themes of the book. The events that happen on the prime earth define the entire multiverse (and vice versa) because that's where TOAA focuses its writing most of the time. Also, gods are a reflection of the ideas and dreams of humans, as seen in Agent of Asgard and if you want to go further back, in Gaiman's Sandman.

if this were an event it would have to be dumbed down for the masses. It's probably better it wasn't. But, it should have carried on for another dozen issues before this ended. So much was left untouched.

The cosmic metaphysics have changed, for the better. Now let's hope that other writers respect that.

-They need a non-altered Hank because the current one is Ultron, so once I again I would chalk it up to editorial mandate.
-Maker killing Ultimate Cap doesn't feel like a random event BTW - it only feels like editorial wanted Ewing to kill him to not confuse the readers after Secret Empire with yet another different Captain America

I was expecting them to use the last celestial's dna to turn eternity back into a multiverse, the way how they used the dark ones to revert it back into a single universe. This is pretty cool as well.

wait, so I finally get this.
The Celestials and the Infinity Watch were in this place - the same place where the One Above All is.
So this means that even when there's nothing, there's still the One Above All.

Makerfags really show their age sometimes.
I mean. Sure in 1610 the maker is the most dangerous guy ever but in 616 the tech level is 10x more advance and the heroes fight megalomaniac geniuses like the maker every effin Thursday.
He might be special in his own reality but he is just another egocentric supervillain in theirs.
