Quote:On Earth, Tanarus (Ulik) and the Avengers battle and kill Terminus (Tanarus opens up his protective helmet, Iron Man gives him a 'lobotomy'). After brief words with Captain America and Iron Man, Tanarus returns to the trolls. The slain giants were actually assassins working with the trolls and were intended to fail. The Nine Worlds is full of chaos without Odin's imposed order, and Karnilla and Geirrodur are trying to stir the pot.
Democracies only work if the different parties are willing to work together through dialogue. Otherwise they get nothing done and continuously collapse. Sadly, different forms of authoritarian rule are better for imposing order. Many of the nine world races are far too malevolent or hold on to long standing grudges to ever get along.
As for the rest, it sounds like Fraction is writing a good story, but all of his stories have started out strong only to sputter toward the middle and end.
but fraction can't be counted on to follow through.
