Quote:Not thought provoking at all. Phoenix suddenly seems to like redheads, like the Asian girl in AVX, but the Phoenix shouldn't give a damn. Never used to.
Quote:Not just any redhead, I don't think. I interpreted the art as telling us the Phoenix was appearing specifically as Jean Grey.
She really didn't seem like Jean. Just another redhead among many.
Quote:My biggest beef is when the Celestials are depicted as stoppable. They should never be stoppable. They should only be trickable.
Mine, as well. And even when they're tricked, everybody should be asking, "Okay. How did we do that?"
Quote:Oh! I like that! The Celestials just up and leave for parts unknown, for reasons unknown, although the reader (from the omniscient point of view) would have some inkling as to what happened.
Not even the reader should get any insight, other than we're worthy in some way. We don't really know why they've let us live as long as they have.
Thing is, they're like scientists, and we don't even know what the experiment is about. And well... we all know what happens to the rats at the end of the experiment, regardless of how well they do... (death)
Quote:The intergalactic empire of Wakanda is about the most absurd thing I've ever read.
Except Wakanda is always portrayed as the most technologically sophisticated country on Earth, while also being steeped in warrior ethics, values, and spirituality. I can easily imagine a future where Wakanda conquers first the Earth and then the galaxy. All it needs is, say, an infinity gem.
They're also extreme isolationists, which is the exact opposite of setting up an empire, much less intergalactic one.
Quote:Was that the future? I thought it was the present. If it's the future then never mind. Also, if that's another universe, then never mind.
Quote:It never occurred to me that it was the present. If it's the present, then reality has been tampered with. Which may be the case, as I think that was Jean Grey on the Avengers statue.
There was no time given, so I assumed it was the present like the rest of the book. Only the "million years ago" was stated to be a different time.
That was not Jean on the Avengers statue. That was the new character, Voyager, that has retroactively been inserted as a founding member.
