    Makes sense. There have been rumors abound that the gay actor they are seeking in the Eternals is supposed to play Hercules. But I have to say I don't like it much. First, the whole role reversal. It's cristal clear to me that Hemsworth's Thor in the MCU has the personality of the Hercules in the comics, and now we see Herc getting much more mature and serious in the comics, sort of like Thor was. Second, there are other intresting characters in Kirby's Eternals, such as Ikaris, Thena, Makkari, The Forgotten One. I don't see why bring in Hercules into the mix (even if it's sure not to be the comics version, but then there's that occasionally dreadful synergy yoiu mentioned). And to close it, I was really happy with the modernization of Hercules atire that he had been using lately (sans the manbun). I really didn't like the "eternalized" costume he was using at the end of the series.

    Peace

Also him and Wanda finally don’t hate each other anymore so that’s good.

    Also Wanda’ll probably end up cameoing in Savage Avengers fairly soon, if it helps.
    That's her usual fate. Being torn out of books until the next event. And only cameoing in others. But I doubt she'd make it into Savage Avengers. I'd rather she'd be on a team book or get another solo. This time without the constant change in artists. Cameos every so often is not really a comfort.

    When Wanda gets to rejoin the main Avengers team in the comics, I will be 100 years old and still checking the solicits every month to see if she's back yet.

    soooo how again did Vision took down Nyx? and what stopped Nyx from basically doing the same thing and manipulating reality against Vision (considering she's "whole" already at that point)?

    tbh, i loved how this series started .... but i really hate it when stories tend to go to these philosophical mumbo jumbo endings route.

    on the other hand, it just made me realize how much i miss Danny Ketch's Ghost Rider. those panels with him on it are just glorious ... Robbie Reyes' fast n' furious rider on avengers is just not working for me

    The yearning is so strong that it keeps you alive in old age.

    Same here, lol. July is not looking good for her so far. Seems like unless Zub is writing, there's very little chance.

    So because all the Olympic gods are being reborn does this include Phobos as well?

    Because The Forgotten One is a horrible Avengers from one of the worst runs, I'm okay with them over writing the Olympians because the only thing different about them was how they were reborn.

    You can't even call this synergy since Jason Aaron pulled off a Bendis and killed off all the Eternals off panel.

    His Uncanny Avengers run was way too short, it would be nice to see him get another Avengers ongoing... as long as it doesn't mean he's off Champions.

    Sounds like the plan is for another collaborated maxi instead though.

    Have to say this mini - or maxi, whatever - didn't do much for me. There were some good individual issues and some good moments but, for me, it felt like a real push to get through. I seldom felt really engaged by it and the last issue was more of a head-scratcher than anything else.

    On the upside, though I am happy that there were no tragic ends for any heroes here. I really didn't want to see Vision die again.

    Based on the last page, it's pretty clear the team is getting back together again for another tale next year. I don't know if I'll be as eager to jump in again next time around but we'll see.

    Tbh I felt the same, the last half really dragged for me

    The ending felt a bit forced but it was ok

    The costume changes didn't impress

    I spent ~$40 to see Monica get vastly reduced in power, see Zeus be resurrected as a blue-skinned god, and watch Conan frolic in the Savage Land. What a waste.

    Whoever said that Marvel Comics stories are as great as they've ever been, well, don't go submitting this series as Exhibit A. You've been warned.

    Total agree. I worried that they were setting us up for a mundane ending...but I didn't think they'd actually do it.
