Quote:They're from some other alternate past. At least that's what was suggested at the end of the last series. They finally went back to the past, the very day Adult Beast got them, and saw the real O5 fighting Unus.
Which means the time time traveling O5 can die in our present without destroying our time stream. Which presumably was Marvel's "get out of jail card" all along. Bendis and Slott and others of that mind set are big on stuff like this. Do some bizarre plot line but leave a trap door through which you can toss the whole thing and bury it when the time comes to return to status quo. In other words, it's a glorified What If
story. When it finally wraps up, nothing has changed, other than certain characters being saddled with unpleasant memories.
Hahahahahahha it's so funny because it's so true.
Bendis, especially, is a coward to his craft. He loves to butcher and disregard everything that came before him to suit his own plotlines and then backs out the door leaving readers to make sense of the smoldering pile he left us with. I feel like Slott on the other hand paints himself into a corner and does not know what the hell to do after that.....I feel like it's a case of complete (Bendis) arrogance, contempt, and disregard vs (Slott) overzealous and poorly planned execution. I can't decide what the bigger shame is, the fact they have both written good books sometimes (Bendis= DD, Slott's She-Hulk and Thing) or the fact that their roles in the larger Marvel Universe have caused SOOOOOO many of the problems that exist today with the company?
