    Hickman's been pretty forthcoming about the idea that the failure of his Ultimates run was heartbreaking for him. You can tell he really wanted to run with that title and he had a lot of great ideas...

    The Ultraverse, but apparently that is so tied up in legal problems you will never ever see any of that stuff again. On that note, a New Universe world would have been nice.

    Leob is such a hit or miss writer as is. His work on Batman: The Long Halloween is among the best in the industry. It consistently ranks in the top 5 when folks rank Batman stories. He has enough...

    The mission statement of Ultimates was "Avengers the Movie." That was openly known long before this article. In a very real way the Ultimate line as a whole became the template for the MCU (as the...

    And don't forget, we have the Kang Trio informing Cap that all of the alternative solutions fail too. They even list outright a lot of things folks wanted to see addressed.

    I like Bendis but I do not get the love for House of M some folks have. I can not read that book without wanting to throw the issues at the wall at a few different points.

    The problem isn't the...

    My suspicion is that the others aren't the 616 versions per say, or at least don't recall the 616. I'm glad to see it is the 616 Strange and Doom. That's a good payoff for those that read Avengers...

    I expect we will see at least a flashback back to it in Secret Wars. More than that I can't even guess. I don't honestly keep up with the Xmen so that's a dangling plot thread I don't care about.

    It tells me that Hickman really needs the Phoenix for what he has planned, but did not want to force Bendis to spend his last issues setting up Secret Wars. That's awfully nice of him honestly. ...

    I think the through line here for this run was the line from the Avenger movie (the first one, you know the good one) where Tony tells look: "If we can't save the world you can be damn sure we're...

    I've enjoyed it immensely, but to each their own. I'm not a Morrison or Remender fan and they both get a lot of love.

    The best part of this all has been seeing Hickman spin a LLLOONNNNGGGGGG form...

    Been a long time since I read it all in context, but I always assumed that the Avengers were just polite enough to let Tony's claims that post Armor Wars Iron Man was a different person stand...

    Tony and Steve's issues are far far older than Disassembled. Read Armor Wars or Galactic Storm.

    The 616 was breaking down and dying off already. Not unreasonable that those other universes died off on their own right after their Earth died.

    Amen.

    Back on topic: I enjoyed this a lot. And if you really think the Future Foundation kids and Sue are dead, then you don't know Hickman. We may not see them until the end but we will see...

    He did stick the landing in F4, so there is hope. On the other hand, Secret Warriors has a really rushed ending because he was rushing off the book and SHIELD has never ended, so.....

    I...

    This. I think the one really valid criticism of it is that Hickman isn't really writing an Avengers story. He's writing a long form event comic. And it is awesome.

    The stars are dying because Owen is. He has a very brief life span and as he warns Doom when he dies, everything will go too. Reese's condition worsens as he gets to the moment of detonation. ...

    I do enjoy Hickman's writing a lot, but what you mentioned...yeah. Just creepy. In fact, there's a Dark Reign one shot that collects short stories for each of the Cabal members. Hickman wrote the...

    Exactly. Killing the other Earth doesn't save both Universes. It triggers the early death of the Universe housing the Earth that was destroyed, while allowing the other Earth's Owen Reese to...

    ...and another apology. Once I reread NA 33, you were right. Killing a Molecule Man starts the death of your universe. It isn't instantaneous if they are killed early, but it does happen all the...

    Wanted to come back and apologize. You were right. I reread this when I got a chance tonight and indeed, all Owen Reeses are the same. They may be hard to find because the Earths are different,...

    No, that's not what he said. While he shares a consciousness across time, he in fact said that the Owen Reeces are NOT the same and because of that they can be really hard to find. That's why you...

    Speaking of the Swans, when I finished this issue something fell into place for me. I'm betting that in her home reality our Black Swan's brother was a Molecule Man. It would explain why she...
