It's the start of summer, and the summer is heating up in at Marvel! The summer cosmic event has begun, and it's name is Thanos. Spoilers to the Ignition event below the cut.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are debating what to do with the reborn Thanos, as his mind and body aren't in synch. Some want to kill him, some realize that Thanos is a necessary part of the big picture, as his presence would have averted the Phalanx Invasion, neutralized the Magus, destroyed the Universal Church before it grew out of control. (These things would have been a threat to his own plans).


From his own title, Nova has chased Dark Quasar of the Cancerverse (I'm coining the Dark Quasar name) out of the Pegasus labs on Earth all the way to the Fault, and as the fleets of the full might of the Inhumans, the Kree, the Shi'ar, the Spartoi, the Rigellians, Blastaar's pirate cruisers. Waiting for them at the Fault lines, the fleets of converted worlds of the Universal Church, and their leader, Adam Magus.

616 Quasar catches up and saves Nova's hide.

There is a moment when the Magus has both heroes down, and turns his back on them. To trigger this.

Yeah, Nova and Quasar could've stopped this if they had taken their shot at the Magus while his back was turned. Instead, the destructive wave causes the Fault to open up further. The psychic wave of all those deaths causes Thanos to snap out of it, overwhelms the assembled telepaths and Thanos charges forth.

Oh, back on the Universal Church flagship... Adam Magus and Dark Quasar show that they have a dark master that they bow to, the leader of this fight. Besides the Lovecraftian cosmic gods that are seen malignantly growing into the 616 universe (realigning 616 dimensions in their wake on a level that the villains can hear it), said Dark Master arrives. And he is not pleased with Magus ability to kill the Avatar of Death.... Thanos. He gives the Magus the gift of death.

Yup. Captain Marvel, of the Cancerverse.

On a tangent....if the Cancerverse invasion truly escalates... does this mean we will see Death Urge and Maelstrom? Hera of Asgard? Pluto? the death mutants from X-men: Necropolis? Annihilus?

I think Cancerverse is more figurative than that. It's not literal cancer.

Somehow the Avatar of Death in Cancererse died, and then the Avatar of Life was able to continue and overwhelm Death with no counter.

Didn't Mar-Vell kill Thanos at one point in 616?

Let's not bicker and argue over who killed who.

Technically Jean Grey has only died once IIRC, during the Morrison arc when Magneto killed her. She didn't die when faux-Phoenix took her form, faux-Phoenix who died wasn't her, and I'm not sure her not-quite death by solar flare counts.

So really Morrison just had the balls to actually do it.

Well, to be fair Claremont and Byrne INTENDED it to be her dying, it not being a death was a fairly massive retcon.

I like crediting Morrisons giant balls. It is like Moore's beard; everyone does crazy shit but theirs sticks.

I think she might have also died about 20 times on panel during Endsong when Wolverine went stabbity on her.

Correction: Claremont and Byrne had originally intended for Jean to be psi-lobotomized by the Shi'ar, and had vague plans for her to eventually get her powers back (although I'm not sure that they knew what to do past that), but Jim Shooter overrode them.

No, I wasn't talking about their original intent, I'm talking about the story they ended up printing, which had Jean dying by her own hand.

Yes Shooter used editorial mandate, but the story that they wrote and published was the death of Jean Grey, until it was undone years later.

Right--I just wanted to make the point that it was Shooter's intent, not theirs. In fact, Byrne was pissed off enough by the mandate to leave the title, although, being Byrne, it was probably inevitable.

So is this Captain Marvel good or bad?

Pretty bad, I think.

That's the thing.

If the Cancer Gods are bad by our standards, and Cancer Marvel is THEIR bad guy... wouldn't that make him a good guy?

He's not their bad guy... more like their champion, probably, as 616 Mar-Vell was that universe's champion.

Why'd they kill off Phyla for this?

Eh, she's been dead before.

Which just makes killing her off all the more stupid.

Going off her recent track record, Phyla being dead right now is probably going to wind up being some kind of Chekhov's Gun by the end of the series, unless you think that her alternate-universe father being the Champion of Life is some kind of coincidence.
