    Dark Celestial's easy to understand once you get Aspirants = Gentry.
    The Aspirants mentioned before in Kieron Gillen's Iron Man... also fighting the

    As much as I appreciate Ewing's respect and usage of extremely niche characters and concepts, I can't help but wonder how much better his stuff would sell if he were

    willing to 'toe the line' a little more and do a more classic run with popular

    characters that still showed off his love for the old lore and stranger cosmic stuff. If he reined in the crazy shite for a bit, I think he could get really big and have more

    free rein to do his own really abstract stuff in the long run.

    Anonymous 04/26/17(Wed)14:07:16 No.91868787
    Incase the flashbacks at the beginning of the comic weren't clue enough. The thing they were having so much trouble beating, and only won against it because of Galactus, is a servant creation of the Aspirants.

    FF created the Aspirants that the Celestials came from. Aspirants created the energy fetus things to serve them.

    The Ultimates had to pull some serious power plays to beat one of those servants...

    Btw, just saying. Anyone want to bet the Celestial TOAA has been preparing for this since the beginning? What if he is waiting outside of reality in order to spring his master plan surprise attack to destroy the FF? What if that plan has a chance of destroying everything and the Ultimates end up having to fight against TOAA to save Eternity while Galactus and Eternity have to fight against the FF?

    I am actually excited to see where this goes.

    Definetly, and the best part is that he does it in such a way that you don't even need to know that these things are references to understand the story, but if you do get them the experience is enhanced. Ewing sees continuity as a tool and knows how to use its full potential without confusing casual readers too much like Busiek did.

    The only way Ewing could possibly go more Hypercrisis would be by acknowleding that the 6th multiverse is the X-Men Animated Universe as shown in the final issue of the comic adaptation of the X-Men Animated Series, or by referencing the Brothers from DC vs Marvel and/or Access.

    The incursions had an interesting premise but nothing actually came from it. The Illuminati got to play god, cost them the universe, and murdered billions to trillions of humans and nothing ever came of it. The most we got to see was Namor and T'challa hissing at each other. Secret Wars was interesting at first, but you knew a lot of the things that were going to happen and it was basically like watching a water bottle slowly roll down a hill as it gains momentum.

    The Richards disappeared from the multiverse after having had enough of everything in there, the Maker became the guardian of the multiverse, Doom reconsidered his life choices, Namor apparently had PTSD and so he buggered off somewhere too, and we got ANAD. Also, the current storyline from this very comic, due to the multiverse still being weak, in a way.

    I don't really know what else did you expect, the only thing I can take out from your line of thought is the civilians distrusting the heroes after what the Illuminati did(not like it was public knowledge, and everyone but Doom, Richards, and Molecule Man got their memory of the event wiped), and it's not like the Marvel Citizens trust their heroes anyway, since now we basically got into Dark Reign 2.0.

    On a fundamental level, the only actual flaw I can see with the story is that they escalated the stakes so much, that going to regular hero vs hero brawls afterward seem like a massive step down, thus not seeing any tension in what might happen to them(outside of the deal with TFF, that is). But I guess that has more to do with the very nature of comics and them having to keep rolling stories until the day they're no more.

The first firmament is just an absolute everything, he exists outside of the cycle. He's more like a biblical God, he even refers to eternity as his child, and was refered to as "skyfather" in last issue.

    I asked him about the general topic once upon a time (reality resetting in Dr Strange, Man-Thing, PAD Captain Marvel, etc..) and his answer was that universe rebirth =/= mulitverse rebirth.
    Seems to me that Galan was a bit of a meme (in the literal sense). The core essence of his being is a holdover from the 6th Multiverse, but his "origin" is strained through a 7th cosmos concept of space-time and fractalized across the branching multiversal, each of which have their own constant self-contained reboots.

    in Hindu concepts, there was Brahman. The void. From Brahman came Brahma, and from Brahma came Vishnu the creator and Shiva the destroyer. and from each of them came feminine aspects. and from their union came 'lesser' gods and also came reincarnations and so on and so forth until you get the billions of mortals
    but every single mortal and every single god is just the godhead method acting so well that they forge they are the godhead plaing a role in a play
    now if you place this overlapping Marvel, then The One Above All is Brahma, and the entire fictional omniverse is Brahman.
    when a kalpa ends, usually when evil triumphs over good, the godhead wakes up. in the same wa you wake up right before you crash into the rocks after falling off a cliff, or you wake up right as the mobster pulls the trigger. and then the godhead goes to sleep to dream again and that's a new kalpa.
    now at every single moment within the godhead's dream, ever person the godhead is dreaming of being there is this nagging thought at the back of their mind, in German, a 'hintergedanken', that they are not who they think they are. that 'who they are' is just a role they play

    Now consider the destiny force. that 'latent psionic potential' dormant in all human characters in marvel, and which was manifested in Rick Jones
    In the climax of Avengers Forever, the 'good guys' were swarmed by every evil Avenger from every doomed timeline. Rick Jones had been endoyed temporarily with the full brunt of the Destiny Force. What did he do? He summoned a near-infinite army of ever avenger from every timeline that didn't go bad.
    Why that, rather than just erasing the foes from existance? Because it mde for a better story.
    The destiny force IS being able to manipulate the story for the sake of the better story. and Rick Jones didn't retain control over the destiny force because it wouldn't have made for as good a story as he did. It would be too easy, once he got back Rick Jones would have resolved every problem the Avengers ever faced.
