    "Author's Saving Throw".

    This entire issue is nothing more than Doctor Strange coming to the prison where SHIELD is holding Doom and talking to him about what's going on in the Astral Plane. Meanwhile, the Maker has come for Doom and SHIELD is desperately trying and failing to stop him. Doom armors up and prepares to fight him together with Strange, and the Maker changes into his true form:


    I would be surprised if this was Bendis' plan from the start of this "story", but the Maker was being used in the infinitely preferable 'Ultimates', so he kind of had to. Maybe he had Mephisto on the backburner all this time. Doesn't explain in the slightest why he would pose as the Maker rather than 616 Reed Richards.

    This issue is dull, dull, dull. Very nearly nothing happens except pointless talking.


The Maker makes more sense to me since 616 Reed is still recreating the Universe yes?

Not that I like defending Bendis after Iron Heart 2. (wasn't there a Avenger that took Cap Britain's place with this name 1st?..or was it Lion Heart)

Yes, it was 'Lionheart'.

And does Ben even know that Reed is recreating the Multiverse? IS Reed still doing that? Ben never met the Maker, who doesn't even resemble Reed that much.

And let's face it: Mephisto was trying to pass off some copy or imitation to Doom as his mother; it would make no less sense to try to fool Ben into thinking the real Reed Richards had returned, which is bound to happen anyway.

So I think Bendis was really using the Maker when he could.

Of course I hate what Bendis has done to the relationship between Cynthia and Victor. So she was actually a bad witch who didn't unquestionably love her son after all? Well, I am sure glad we finally got that cleared up!
