    Well, that has since been retconned. We've seen multiple Infinity Gauntlets from different universes which have failed to work outside of the universe it was from. We saw this on Secret Wars' Battleworld where Black Panther could only use his Infinity Gauntlet when he was in the region that IG came from. It was also the case in JLA/Avengers when Darkseid briefly held the IG (though I'm dubious as to that story's continuity).


That is true. Yet here the entity is presented almost in an identical light as the First Firmament. But yes, the gems have seemingly lost their luster since then.

        Yes, you are asking too much if you want the story to tie up every cosmic loose end in the history of Marvel.

        Not every loose end, but I like it when a plan comes together. I just find a lot of the current stories somewhat lacking in creativity nowadays. So many great characters with so much story potential and I'm just not seeing it anymore. Secret Wars 2, possibly the biggest historical event in the MU.. and so anticlimactic. It could've been SO much better.

    Well, you just asked about a bunch of stories unrelated to the one that Ewing is telling so it's unfair to ask that he resolve those plot threads. Anyway, it's unfair to generalize Marvel as a whole. As always, Marvel (and any other comics company) has good writers and bad writers. They aren't all the same and can't be painted with one brush. You didn't like Hickman's story. That doesn't mean you won't like Ewing's.


Of course not. I actually liked Ewing's Loki Agent of Asgard. I think he's a good writer. I just didn't care for his particular ideas in this series. Sure there will always be good and bad writers but if a writer is going to be responsible for a story of this magnitude, the Origin of the MU for instance, certain elements need to be addressed. It's the most "relatable" story by its very nature. Exploring the origins of the MU I find commendable, but you're going to have to bring your best game to do it right. Expectations are going to be justifiably high from readers who've invested years in the marvel continuity. Just not a ride I want to take with characters like Anti-Man, alternate versions of New Universe characters and Chavez.

          So the very first entity from the first universe is now evil. Galactus is the lifebringer. And Chavez is suddenly a major character and a universal player. Not interested.
        Your loss.
      Marvel's loss. My disappointment.



    Quote:
    Well, several people on these boards, myself included, find the Ultimates series the best thing Marvel is putting out right now. It's your loss dismissing it out of hand.


Sad to say the competition isn't hard to beat these days.. but I've read the issues. Moving forward, hopefully it's gets better.
