    I clicked the link and it didn't bring me to an article about this, but I do have an opinion on this.

    I say that Reed Richards gets a pass for that because he was forced to play a part in a goofy story and he had no real way to say no because he is a fictional comic book property. Just because Mark Millar and his editors at the time of Civil War thought it was a reasonable thing for Reed Richards to do, doesn't mean that I have to take it any more seriously than Thanos writing his name on the back of his own helicopter. Yes, it happened in an in-continuity comic. No, I don't have to assume that every in-continuity character take it any more seriously than I do.

    Yes, Reed got a pass. Tony was the only one that got the full brunt of the hate from the other characters and the readers. Now how some writers wrote Tony, he deserved the hate, but Reed was right there along with him.

    All characters should get passes for anything they did while being written by Mark Millar.

    It's funny because there was a debate recently about people having their own personal continuities for canon events in comics but most of us do it and it's almost inevitable when characters go drastically out of character to further a rather forced storyline.

    It was really messed up. I remember the funeral too. It was Stark, Reed's and Pym's fault. All thought I always thought Pym being a skrull screwed it up on purpose to spread more dissent.

    Clor was acting in self-defense. Foster charged him while threatening to kill him.

    The question should be how did Millar get a free pass to write this crap. I haven't followed Marvel since this "event". It completely ruined the Marvel Universe for me.

    He wrote some of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed comics Marvel had had in ages just prior to that with Ultimate x-Men, Ultimates and Ultimates 2.

    Which still hold up quite well today.

    Reed and Tony flat out state the clone was supposed to disable Foster not kill him.

    This is why I think Skrull Pym is the one that made it malfunction.
