Quote:What if Hickman's temporal tinkering is messing with the great powers of the MU. The Living Tribunal was recently found dead on the moon, Celestials are getting killed with axes, and the Phoenix has been eliminated. What if the Odinforce is also being compromised and its affecting Mjolnir's enchantment. It's the only thing I can think of to at least justify Exitar getting killed. (There's absolutely no way a writer should get away with killing Exitar with an axe without a good explanation.) Thoughts?
Quote:The explanation back then was the same as it is now... Celestials had a peculiar weakness to Sue's forcefields, just as they now have a specific weakness to the enchantment in Thor's axe.
Quote:I see no problem here.
Quote:Except the contradiction of why would Odin go through the trouble of making the Destroyer and throwing all of Asgard to fight the Celestials if he had a one shot win tool all along.
No argument here. But that's a separate point of current writers ignoring past continuity.
Quote:And the Sue thing had a bit more to it. Exitar already was somewhat weakened from earlier exertions and had some chinks in his armor that the IW exploited. They are not close to being the same.
There was nothing in the story back then to even remotely suggest that Exitar's exertions in powering up to kill the Watcher's leader was responsible for helping Sue to do what she did. I don't remember chinks in the armor being a major factor either but it was a long time ago.
Reverend Meteor below has it right. Exitar got killed by Sue because the properties of her force fields was like kryptonite to Celestials... full stop. Just like the axe's enchantment was portrayed as his kryptonite too. Now if Exitar wasn't such a retard he could have obliterated either Sue or Thor first if he felt himself in danger. But nooo... the mighty Celestial is "above" all that.
celestials should wreck anybody lower than a cosmic all day, every day, tired, hungry, weakened, kryptonite, or otherwise.
