    Correct. Morrison's interpretation and retcon was that any beings from the Fourth World were higher-dimensional beings that had previously only interracted with Earth-One dimension as refractions and...

    The way Morrison set it up, they didn't have to have the same personality. They were retractions, not perfect shadows. So there was some leeway to let different Darkseids be different takes on the...

    That sort of defeats the point of them being gods, though. They aren't intended to just be super powerful aliens, but literal embodiments of ideas. While Highfather and Darkseid are the leaders of...

    I'm not sure why people are surprised. Captain America was created to express a real-world political opinion- pre-Pearl Harbor interventionism- and has reflected the culture in every major run ever...

    Don't apologize when that's what I was doing in the first place! Good to know more of the relevant backstory, especially since this run looks to be continuity-driven, what with the Starheart and...

    The Guardians were the ones that created the Starheart in their early days, according to Roy Thomas' All-Star Squadron. They rounded up all magic in the universe, or half according to this issue, and...

    Here's the thing... It's from the year 2000! It feels like high '90s but came well after the crash. It's pretty weird.

    Looking foreword to this, since I liked the first issue a bunch. It's not...

    The Unknown Wizard, at least, was Luthor in the original serial, so that's at least got precedent.

    The gimmick in this issue was fantastic. It really shows what comics can do that other mediums can't.

    Issue was fun too, if a bit slight do to said gimmick. Looking forward to the next issue....

    I left it vauge so folks can be surprised if they want and click on it or wait for the announcement.

    Cover image gives a bit of a tease too. Looks like it might be part of Future State?

    Superman's new title (SPOILERS)

    Looks like the rumors are true. Advance solicits from Penguin Randomhouse have spoiled this book's existence. What's surprising is who's writing it. Color me intrigued, to say the least.

    Does it? Leader, Abomination, Xenmnu, Gyrich, the UFOes are all pretty classic Hulk villains. Fortean and Shadow Base comes from Red Hulk's title. The only outside villain that isn't new is Dario...

    From a brutal pragmatic view, this makes some sense. Bolt was a schlub without full control of his powers (and likely isn't dead- his daughter played a role in the Future State SS, after all), Film...

    The one you're thinking of is Del Frye as a proto-hulk, but the tv show also had an ancient Native american Hulk known only as the First Hunter. Looks like they decided to mine the tv show's ideas...

    It just occured to me, the "are we or aren't we the good guy?" from the latest issue is another echo of not only "Man or Monster... or both?" but also the geburah or golacheb.

    That's part of the story, though. Because of how the Eight Marvel U was created and by who, its a replication of the Seventh. That extended to the Abstracts, much to some of their chagrin.
