    How did GR hear Loki talking to Cap?

Well, he was right there in the water with them. The only surprise was how long he had been listening.

    Remind me the issue and synopsis of the coming of the 1st Host that readers previously were told (from an old Thor or Eternals ish presumably).

Eternals v1 #2, Thor v1 #300.

    Speaking of Eternals, they were dropped from the story like hot potatoes. Mentioned in passing. What a joke.

Yeah. Still not laughing.

    Soooo... The Progenitor came for 4 Billion Years ago to croak and spread a horde of cosmic cooties. Then his "lover" Zgreb came for him 3 Billion Years later? [sarcasm]Talk about a prolonged courtship essentially on hold for that length of time. Now that must've been true love.[/sarcasm] The (retconned?) 1st Host came looking for the missing couple but ran from the Horde and left behind the unhappy couple. Somehow the CAVEngers got involved with THIS HOT MESS and suffered casualties or somesuch. Who knows. Loki could've been lying out of his teeth.

Not just 3 billion years later. Approximmately 3.9 billion years later. I wouldn't call it courtship. I would assume the courtship came before they were lovers. How long would you search for your lover?

However, this is all disgusting imo. Celestials shouldn't be behaving so humanly. Just defecate all over Kirby, Aaron. It might be more respectful.

    Loki wasted half the book with this deplorable origin story. Then couldn't handle a chained Cap so he tried to kill him. Then he gets choked and bound by GR's chain BETWEEN PANELS. His portrayal felt so off and infodumping got boring. And when exactly did Loki learn of this aeons old story of these Celestials.


    An "Alpha" Celestial is basically just a Celestial, eh? Or just the Pogenitor? "Dark" Celestial is any that have been infected OR HAVE NOT been infected by the Horde bugs, right? So, all these dead Celestials dropping out of the sky were infected and died by bugs offworld?

I... think so.

    Soooo... God-Killer II armor was built by Stark on Mars? Hmmph. Well, he made Sol's Hammer satelligte between issues so this is hard to contest but still don't like this sudden intro as much as that long neglected Starbrand Day Care center in space.


    Uh, how is GR's Car communicating/hacking IM's Armor?! Mystical spirit power?

Sort of a merger of magic and tech. It's what the Hell Charger/Uncle Eli is.

    Uh, The Car knows/spoke with Howard Stark?!

He's talking about his uncle Eli. They're dead. Dead people speak to each other.

    Uh, Cap was talking with a smartass tone according to GR?!

The driving comment. Yes.

    Uh, Loki is bossing the Dark Celestials around?!

Yeah. I can accept him being in league with them, but... Maybe he just thinks he's bossing them around.

    Carol's dialogue was CHILDISH.

Well, all things considered, not that big of a let down.

    Uh, that's seems like an awfully easypeasy, conveniently specific, uber power upgrade the Panther gave to himself and Carol. Something that would be dumb not to reuse against lesser A-Listers.

Very much.

    Uh, ditto with Thor and Shulkie getting amped up with that blue Popeye Spinach gelatin. No idea why it's referred to as a "weapon".


    GR was doing so well then all of a sudden he gets the urge to chicken out.

    Uh, GR's demonic spirit can easypeasy possess a Celestial????!!!!! In the voice of The Church Lady, "Well isn't that special." Was Robbie at this level resourcefulness when he has his own series?

*eyes rolling... into the back of my head*

    Uh, was this all so we could get a reimagined version of Avengers Vs Transformers mini series to actually be happening in the 616 this time?! Bah.

GAH! You remind me of that?!

City of Heroes is BACK!
