Quote:...the fact that they survived doesn't mean that they still have an influence over Asgard.
As a person, just because you don't eat meat doesn't mean you will die. You can be a vegetarian and still be healthy. It just sucks not to eat meat. So, just because TWSAITS survived while being cut from the energies produced during the Ragnarok Cycle does not mean they will automatically die...just as Galactus may find another source of energy to consume if he doesn't eat a planet.
But their "survival" wasn't what oeming intended. I was actually trying to back up what you said. The idea that TWSAIS "surivived" does in fact undermine Oemings run is true.
But then again as far as I'm concerned the majority of Thor's comic, and appearances for the past what.....? 10 years? Never happened.
...I doubt if he meant to exterminate one whole extraterrestrial race for one story.
As far as his intention goes, I really don't think it goes beyond just breaking the ragnarok cycle.
My original point, about undermining Oeming's Ragnarok story is simply just about TWSAIS still having an influence over Asgard. Their ties have been severed. It ended beautifully. It was one of the highlights in Thor's history for the past 10 years...or so....and it would be a great disservice to undo all of that just to explain away the current direction.
