    There's not really any difference between a natural universe and a sufficiently detailed simulation.

    Right. There's also no real difference between a statement that has meaning and sufficiently well-crafted pseudo-intellectual garbage that is ripe for being retweeted and posted as a Facebook status. At least, as far as some people are concerned apparently.

    You'd better credit me.

    I'd rather Secret Invasion and/or Secret Wars for the next crossover. If they have one.

    I enjoyed Hickman's F4 and hope they adapt part of it in the future.

    Absolutely 100% Hickman's portal of the Fantastic Four and Mister Fantastic was by far and away the most interesting.

    It is my sincerest hope that Dr. Strange & The Multiverse of Madness introduces the Fantastic Four and paves the way to introducing Hickman's incursions and eventually to introducing Hickman's the entire Marvel Multiverse is a simulation created and maintained by the Beyonders idea.

    So you are now saying that Bostrom, this guy...

    ...is stupid, just because you don't understand why he believes that there maybe far more layers to our universe that we cannot perceive, and the signals that our eyes and our satellites pick up maybe but a small fraction of what is actually out there.

    So...the MCU is crossing over with the Matrix? Is that what this is?

    Not exactly. In the Matrix, humans are prisoners in the "real" world. In simulation theory, humans are algorithms that can only exist inside the machine.

    There are some kinds of stories that are better told in the medium of comics.

    I honestly never thought that Civil War or Infinity Gauntlet would ever translate to film, but they made for excellent films. I see no reason that Hickmans New Avengers would translate even better.

    Hickman's entire run of NA/Avengers was just too decompressed (like parts of his X-Men run)and it definitely suffered from rewrites especially near the end.

    I did not care for Hickman's Avengers run. It was overblown tedious and kinda dull.

    The Black Order were a cool addition of cosmic bad guys, every other new character in that run was forgetable.

    Secret Wars was a fun idea with a grand story. But the MCU version would be very differet, and probably all the better for it.

    His Avengers run was indeed awful and boring.

    But his New Avengers storyline leading into Secret Wars was the best comic storyline Ive ever read, by far. And Hickmans Fantastic Four run was also almost as good.
