    Yep. And there's something I think folks are missing. When your life bread is your mental ingenuity, then your state of mind can very much impact your ability to function. After what happened with...

    The problem for the Illuminati has always been that the actual Incursion takes priority, time and resources that you need in order to attack the root cause. You're always putting out fires and never...

    I'd really like to see him with the Marvel Cosmic corner of the Marvel U. I think a GotG, Imperial Guard, and/or Nova Corps from him would really be something.

    I think the Illuminati will try to find some way to spin this. Maybe a "OMG! LOOK WHAT THEY ARE DOING!" then quietly fix things, back out of the Incursion zone while the Avengers stop the Cabal, and...

    I read this issue as the exhaustion point. They've known for a while that if they couldn't find a way to stop the Incursions, exhaustion would end them. This was that moment. They were handed a...

    This has been a repeated problem for Hickman though. His other Marvel works were mostly self contained characters, while the cast of New Avengers (and Avengers) are subject to the whims of other...

    Some of that may be off the table. As I understand, Avengers World spun off a lot of the B-plots that Hickman has ran out of time for. I have to think some of the missing spots would have been...

    About Nova Corps: we did see folks in the "comic book" armor in the background, so it is possible that the Nova Corps as we understand them were in play. Nova Corp did have a substantial fleet that...

    This is starting to remind me of the moral quandary in the real world Manhatten Project. The bomb was built to end the war and save lives, but the moment the bomb is tested the desire to use it...

    Hello,

    When Franklin says the incursions can't be stopped and that the early death of the multiverse will happen, I'm inclined to listen to him. Hickman just established in his FF run his time...

    I'm not terribly surprised though. Focusing on the incursions first would mean ignoring evil, and he can't do that.

    Reality is still going because of the Rogue Planet. But how, and why, that...

    Just found this thread. All signs seem to point to him being done at Marvel. I'm thinking he's had some editorial issues there too. While his Ultimates, SHIELD, Secret Warriors and Fabtastic Four...

    As I understand it, this is the moment the luck runs out. The group is going to split soon over what happens. I expect a new very dark version of the illuminati to be in play right before and...

    The Galactus seed is mentioned in Fantastic Four 600 in a back up story. Hickman does some retconning of its purpose there.

    It is referenced just prior to Fantastic Four 600 in FF. Galactus uses a crucial phrase to describe what happens if the seed awakens, namely everything will "end sooner". That dialogue is repeated...

    This wasn't as strong as the previous issues have been. Kinda spoiled by the fact we've had a strong run of issues since the Mirror U Avengers wrapped and Banner learned the...
