Quote:Cates could prove his understanding of the material and ability to weave together stories from other writers by making Surtur the God of Hammers (or God of Smiths).
That is hard to do when he has conclusively proven that he has not even come close to mastering either understanding of source material or past stories.
That's partially why Cates he is one of the most egregious and flippant continuity breakers working in Marvel today, IMHO.
See his most recent sloppy, unnecessary retcon in the 1st post of this thread.
New universe, new origins. This is Marvel's Crisis on Infinite Earths without calling it by that name. Now whether they can keep continuity straight within that context is another question altogether. Plus it sucks.
