I am stunned that there has been no formal explanation on how Sakaar exists after being consumed by Galactus so publicly.

I appreciate something happened in some book so that Galactus is now a Life-giver \(\?\) but was that ever explained in this key series? … and how does that work? All the people on Sakaar were just magically reverted to their status quo before the destruction of their planet?

Cho has no questions about this?

Very confusing.
Not happy such an enormous explanation isn't forthcoming.

I mean two earths collided and everything is normal. Is it so hard to figure out without being spelled out in the book?

You're saying it wrong. Two earths collided and nothing is normal anymore.

Like Cth mentioned, we're in a new Marvel Universe now. The old one (universe 7) ended (earths colliding, Beyonders,..) in the beginning of the last Secret Wars and the new one was created at the end of the series. Universe 8.
So, a brand new universe! Everything that happened the last 70 years
doesn't really have to matter anymore.

Yup. It does have to be spelled out in my book.

I get Secret Wars and all that inconsistent deus ex machine stuff.
Doesn't explain anything.

We just assume all those Sakaarian never died years before Secret Wars reset everything?

If Sakaar WAS rebooted, why do they remember the Hulk?
Did Hiro-Kala's story - linked to the planet's destruction - not take place?


To me this is a mess that requires more thought than just 'nothing to see here'.

The Marvel Universe has been rebooted several times already. Of the top of my head, I can think three: Chaos War, the 5 issue Defenders mini series, and PAD's 2nd Captain Marvel series. I'm sure there are more. It's not like Secret Wars has a monopoly on rebooting the universe.

There really should be an in-story explanation as to why an entire planet has been revived.

As far as I knew most of what happened was held over and was what it was before. It just gives them an out to change some things with the reboot instead of starting from ground zero.

Secret Wars only explains the things that can't be explained logically.

If something is illogical or a continuity error then you can just say "Secret Wars" and that is supposed to be the explanation.

See you're thinking it is like Crisis on Infinte Earths were there were clear retcons. Nope. The beauty (or abject horror) of Secret Wars is that it changes nothing until some later writer screws up a point of continuity and then they just say "Secret Wars" and then you know there's no point arguing the point. Secret Wars is a CYA (Cover Your Ass) maneuver. Now a writer can screw anything up at Marvel and say "Secret Wars" and be let off the hook.

Did you ever read George Orwell's 1984? There's a plot point in that where the government routinely alters the truth via propaganda and you just sort of have to go along with it and believe it. Sometimes you have to believe 2 contradictory ideas. That's Marvel today.

I hate Secret Wars. Crisis on Infinte Earths shook thing up with their retcons.

Marvel could have shaken things or left things alone. Instead they now have a weasel excuse for continuity errors and they just say "Secret Wars" to ward off any complaints.

So Secret Wars is only relevant when a writer screws up continuity wise. Secret Wars didn't make clear changes to the timeline like Clark being the only Kryptonian on earth. No it's just weasel stuff they use to explain continuity errors. None of the changes from Secret Wars were defined (except Miles).

I would say that Galactus recreated it as part of his new status as lifebringer... And some of the refugee from the Savage Land maybe got thrown back on the newly established Sakaar by a portal of some kind during the incursions.
