If it's not the case, then it's a great mask for TOBA.

It seems that Joe and Savage will be driving the story in #40, and we will learn more about Reader's (LOL) plans in #42. It would be interesting if part of his endgame is to control all the abstract concepts that have been referenced in IH so far (Heaven, Hell, Mephisto's realm)--perhaps he wants to unite with (consume would be a better descriptor) the First Firmament and become the only being in existence?

Good question. Considering that TOBA is the direct opposite/the dark mirror of TOAA, it's been always present in the multiverse, and at least as a concept it's above (or below, lol) the First Firmament (or Eternity and Infinity, for example).

Ewing mentioned, more or less, once that beings like TOBA and TOAA don't "interfere" directly with the events that happen in the universe. That's why it was so smart to keep TOBA somewhat confined to the Below Place. I don't know if He/It would go back to consume everything that was in the previous iterations of the universe.

What I think is that, being for the first time out free in the MU, it will use the Hulk to consume everything that is and that will be. He did it (or could do) with the eighth cosmos and was doing with the 9th. I don't see him stopping, unless that, due to what he's doing, there will be no more iterations of the Multiverse.

I was thinking how the First Firmament desired to be the sole entity in the cosmos, and attempted to consume the 8th iteration to return to the status quo. TOBA has a similar goal, but unlike the former, once released, will not be able to be stopped. At any rate, the next dozen or so issues should be interesting to read.

I get it. I'd forgotten about the thing with the First Firmament trying to take over everything.

Anyway, it would be really cool to see how some high level abstracts feel about TOBA!
