Subj: Ultimates^2 #9: Don't be jelly!
Posted: Tue Jul 25, 2017 at 02:02:04 pm EDT (Viewed 418 times)

Ultimates^2 009

Already gave this issue a thread here:
but just read 0-Day reactions at fourchan and some thought provoking ideas from cbr too. Saved here for posterity and maybe comments now even. My mind is STILL "jelly" from the ramifications/implications of so many points w/the issue (including the CRAZINESS of thousands of Earths -only Earths?- in this reality now!).

    No. The bleed was actually mentioned before seprately.
    Superflow is where concepts can form and go.
    Bleed is the travel flow of dimensions.

    For those who do not know...
    Punch Dimension: Cyclops possesses the mutant ability to project a beam of heatless, ruby-colored concussive force from his eyes, which act as interdimensional apertures between this universe and another. Cyclops’ body constanty absorbs ambient energy, such as sunlight, from his environment into his body’s cells, which allows him to open the apertures. Cyclops’ mind generates a psionic field that is attuned to the forces that maintain the apertures.

    Point:Tony with a Tumor also is conveniently technopathic, hyper intelligent due to his body mostly being regenerative neural matter. This means he's so smart, he has to be black-out drunk to be on 616 Tony's level, and has regeneration that beats 616 Deadpool. And an infinity gem in his head.
    Point:Ult Cap is also waaay past peak human and brutal, and Ult-Thor has crazy teleportation powers on top of being a Thor.

    The Maker went to him for two reasons:
    High Evolutionary has an entire Counter-Earth and plenty of super-tech for The Maker to work with, and since regular Earth is blocked off because of The Shield, Counter-Earth is the best option for him to set-up his new lab

    The Maker is a show-off that loves exposition dumps. Can't do either without someone around, and that someone needs to be really smart, otherwise outsmarting them isn't much of a challenge.

    The Maker was "sliced" into pieces and put into several different universes by Molecule Man. This Maker came from one of those universes to Counter-Earth to enact the plan. There is still a Maker on Earth, behind the Energy Shield though (I think Bendis is using him to troll Doom? I don't know.)

If he gets too whored out they'll do something retarded like make him put on the Doom armor so Doom can fight him in Iron Man armor.

    So reflection on this issue. Mostly seems to be a reveal and building issue. We get the pieces on the chess board moved into their end-game positions. Finally the space team have been moved out of their pointless status-quo in Earth orbit (although I bet he puts them back afterwards and leaves the timescale vague).

    The Super-Flow concept is finally paying off. I thought it was funny the way the concept was just a little over explained and utilised, to really ram home what it means in the context of this story. The reiterated concept of the 'Prime Earth' and 'Prime Universe' was an interesting comment on the 1610, and also a commentary on the power of the diversity of concepts and ideas in the MU. It is suggesting that the Super-Flow is analogous to the MU for us the readers. The super-flow concept has always been a metaphor, and it is bigger than any one story, but I did enjoy this take.

    I am totally unsure where the T'Challa story is headed, but it feels like a part of the unified whole. I am looking forward to #100.

    >>>>>>>Wasn't the term "Superflow" a location reference from the "NewUniversal" universe?

    Yes it was. It was brought into the MU by Hickman, when he incorporated some of the NU characters. And Ewing has been increasing those links in this very series. With more characters and further exploration of the super-flow.

    In the NU it was also a kind of idea space, and Earth was moving within it, towards a new paradigm. This was why the NU had super powered characters.

    The break in the systems in the super-flow were some of the first references to the multiverse having a major problem, tipping off the Builders to the collapse of the multiverse, and Earth's central place in the broken systems. Then came the NU concept of The White Event and a number of NU characters referred to as planetary defence systems, such as Star Brand.

    Well there's a thought
    Honestly, the very mention of the "Superflow" in the Earth-616.x universe had me confused -- so I Googled it and found out that the "Incursions" all started with the "White Event" of 1985 (real-time). I just started to read Ultimates2 #9 -- and, I'm loving it -- this is all beginning to make sense

    If this title is cancelled then I don't want to hear about how all a book needs to sell is "good writing" or "forced diversity sucks! Use original characters or pre-existing PoC/women" or "stick with continuity instead of change for change sake." This book does pretty much everything the "fans" claim they want and yet, it's possibly going to get cancelled due to low sales. Smdh
    ...and how is it advertised/pushed compared to the obvious "agenda" books? Not to mention it's a solitary book in a sea of opposites, and the fans that like this sort of thing have long since felt alienated and aren't going to go back to Marvel for one book. Also, the entire premise of the book is "above the heads" of most casual modern readers; it's not a millenial soap opera nor a light action oriented book.

    This book is great and all, but it is by no means an easy book. Even without the philosophical and scientific concepts it uses, it is deep, deep in Marvel continuity. Even experienced readers who consider themselves Marvel experts have to look up characters and concepts on Wiki to keep up.
