Quote:It seems to me that the Celestials don't automatically die with each iteration. They were responsible for the first multiverse after the dispersion of the First Firmament and they tend to each iteration.
Quote:That's possible but it would have been nice if the story had made it clear that the Celestials were somehow exempt from dying with each of the multiverses.
Well, some of the Celestials depicted back at the time of the First Firmament were named Celestials like Nezarr the Calculator and Tefral the Surveyor. I suppose some Celestials could look exactly like another, but the implication is that they are the same ones who existed during the seventh iteration or else why draw them the same?
Ewing is as continuity aware as any Marvel writer I've ever read. He'll veer away from continuity if his story calls for it, but he's probably aware of any retcons he's undertaking. So his story of the Celestials' part in shattering the First Firmament and creating the multiverse stems from an obscure issue of X-treme X-Men:
Given the above scans and that some Celestials survived the destruction of the multiverse by the Beyonders, it makes sense that Celestials can survive between iterations of the multiverse.
