Quote:The exception is New Avengers, where the Namor/Panther stuff has been excellent. I'm not sure I buy the Beast and Doctor Strange jumping off the slippery slope with the others, though, and Reed was supposed to have learned not to do this sort of stuff in Hickman's FF series. I'm also curious about how on Earth anyone writes these guys as heroes ever again given that, if I understand the story correctly, they've been killing billions of people on alternate Earths with antimatter bombs in order to preserve "their" Earth.
I think that Hickman is basing his interpretation of Beast and Strange on Ellis's Ghost Boxes arc and Gillis's Strange Tales. Of course, it would be nice if he actually referenced those issues. As for how they go back to being heroes again, the same way Strange went back to being a hero after bashing Shuman-Gorath in the head with the Earth- we never mention it again.
