    I don't like this "million years ago" thing.

How come? Odin would definitely have been around back then. Phoenix too. I'm not so sure about the Panther God, Shou Lao, the Starbrand, or the Spirit of Vengeance, although I think it's reasonable that any of them could have been walking the Earth a million years ago.

By the way, what did you think of the Phoenix looking like Jean Grey? A million years ago, and the Phoenix manifests in that particular image. Thought-provoking, no?

    Marvel hasn't gotten Celestials right in over 20 years, and I see no hint they're going to start.

My biggest beef is when the Celestials are depicted as stoppable. They should never be stoppable. They should only be trickable.

    Frankly, I wish Marvel would stop rewriting the past and look ahead.

Yeah, I see your point there. To me, it depends primarily on what Marvel does with the retcon. For example, we have an opportunity here for connections to be revealed between T'Challa, Thor, Ghost Rider, the Starbrand, Jean Grey, and Danny Rand. This is exactly the sort of thing that seems to be happening in DC's current "Metal" series.

    The intergalactic empire of Wakanda is about the most absurd thing I've ever read.

Except Wakanda is always portrayed as the most technologically sophisticated country on Earth, while also being steeped in warrior ethics, values, and spirituality. I can easily imagine a future where Wakanda conquers first the Earth and then the galaxy. All it needs is, say, an infinity gem.

    Otherwise, it was pretty good.

Wow - so far three of us basically like it. Something's wrong here. Where's the seething negativity?
