"... Now it's just as encumbered and clumsy as the 616 universe, only with more violence and less charm."
YES. SO MUCH YES.
And then I realize that the modern 616's disconnect from its past makes it just as charmless as the Ultimate universe, and I cry.
I know I'm probably a rarity, but I actually
huge amounts of complex continuity that I can never know every detail of and can't be reconciled without a sliding timescale, because it ties the modern stories back to the decades and decades for which these characters existed and makes them so much grander and more timeless than the sum of their recent stories.
