  1. I can totally understand being strapped for time....

    I can totally understand being strapped for time. I work more than 40 hours a week, run a 5S committee at work and am a member of the company's Emergency Response Team. Of course, there's...

    For God's sake, Mark. I don't want you to shut up and go away. I want you to defend your positions rather than restate them, to engage the counterarguments that come your way rather than step around...

    You keep saying this even though you know that the multiverse would be saved if all but one Earth were destroyed.



    You have yet to justify even once your ongoing use of the word "selfish" in...

    Not even a little bit.



    The multiverse is no longer infinitely expanding. It's going in the other direction.



    The Living Tribunal is apparently dead (even if not, he's out of the...

    His curiosity along with the freedom to cut loose on one world after another would probably be sufficient to keep him from blowing up the 616 Earth. This Thanos is a lot more vicious than the...

    Not quite. The conceit of the story is that the multiverse, which was finite in life anyway, is collapsing on itself. We, therefore, have to assume that its infinitely expanding nature is going in...

    Why do people keep.bringing up Franklin when his future self is in this story and unable to do anything to stop what's happening?

    The comics are jumping eight months ahead of the release schedule for us in the real world. It may be as little as days or weeks in the story.


    Technically, their current methods would eventually...

    That's a meta response that doesn't address the context within the narrative. In-universe, Cap's way has been shown to result in what I said above.

    You are correct about one thing, though: If Cap...

    Are you conflating an instance of one man weighing his morals against his own survival (and no one else's) with an instance of weighing one's morals against the survival of all creation? Because it...

    In the first place, I don't think most of us judge our fiction based on "what if" scenarios we have no reason to believe exist. A "what if" no one knew was coming and hasn't been implied to doesn't...

    Last year's Christmas special confirmed that they were saved.

    I'm not sure what you aren't understanding about "killing Earths doesn't kill the multiverse; only letting universes die does." Are you ignoring the difference on purpose or overlooking it every time...

    You must have wandered off somewhere for most of that time then. I can think of quite a few off the top of my head.

    Uhhhh, how is that a logical reading of what I said at all?

    You're promoting sacrificing your life along with everyone else's for ideals ... in other words, for yourself. No one benfits from that...

    Mary Sues don't have to be self-inserts. Self-inserts in fanfiction typically have all the traits associated with Mary Sues, but the self-insert element isn't required. Alice from the "Resident Evil"...

    I think we already talked about this. The books are moving eight months ahead for us, but it could be far less than that for the characters.

    Where did you hear that? It's obviously set before "Infinity," and Starlin said he had read most of that story when he was writing this one. He hadn't read the ending to it yet, but that was his own...

    Owen Reece (the Molecule Man) is dead. Even if he wasn't, though, since the adult Franklin Richards has been unable to do anything about the Incursions, it stands to reason that the Molecule Man...

    In light of those lines, I begin to wonder if Captain Britain is as likely a candidate for whatever that role is as I thought earlier. Others have suggested Amadeus Cho, who probably is a better fit...

    I wish you had said all this sooner. If you have elsewhere and I missed it, I apologize. Clearly I drew some inaccurate conclusions, for which I am sorry.

    I would care if it didn't run counter to all available evidence on the matter, ignore the context of the entire situation and wasn't refuted by the planet's leading expert on the Phoenix Force.

    Since Hickman's story runs until at least May, I doubt that very much. =P



    Well, to be fair, he didn't release Terrax either. Though I agree there's a lot more to Black Swan than that.
