Quote:I don't like this "million years ago" thing.
Quote: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?
Yeah. I don't like the idea of any of the pantheon gods being around before man's culture. Nor do I like the ethnic diversity of the humans being shown back then.
We had an origin for Spirits of Vengeance. They were created after the Flood, so one should not be existing a million years ago.
Not thought provoking at all. Phoenix suddenly seems to like redheads, like the Asian girl in AVX, but the Phoenix shouldn't give a damn. Never used to.
Quote:Marvel hasn't gotten Celestials right in over 20 years, and I see no hint they're going to start.
Quote:My biggest beef is when the Celestials are depicted as stoppable. They should never be stoppable. They should only be trickable.
Mine, as well. And even when they're tricked, everybody should be asking, "Okay. How did we do that?"
And this Celestial is bleeding? Give me a break. Celestials do not bleed, not even figuratively.
Quote:Frankly, I wish Marvel would stop rewriting the past and look ahead.
Quote: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.
Ugh. Don't get me thinking about that Metal monstrosity. I never want to see Supes again with his own Lucille. That image is just so wrong.
Quote:The intergalactic empire of Wakanda is about the most absurd thing I've ever read.
Quote: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.
They're also extreme isolationists, which is the exact opposite of setting up an empire, much less intergalactic one.
Was that the future? I thought it was the present. If it's the future then never mind. Also, if that's another universe, then never mind.
