"I'm also taking some inspiration from old Captain America stories from the past — that sense of writers in dark times exploring what their country meant to them — and a few yet to come. The U.S. Avengers are going to have their role to play in the future." -- Al Ewing

The nephew of the Plunderer? ... Isn't Parnival's brother Ka-Zar?
In which case, wouldn't that make Skully Ka-Zar's Kid?

Betting it's not a coincidence that AIM's security people are wearing red.
(Clearly, Roberto needs to hire minions who've watched more Star Trek, quick...)

Squirrel Girl, Toni and Aikku all fancied up in tuxes...
... hmm? Sorry, just got... distracted for... a moment...

Yeah. The ladies in their tuxes... especially Aikku, it's just such a lovely image. A+ for awesome.

Except it's also implied he's the son of the Green Skull. So maybe Green Skull hooked up with a sister of Ka-Zar and the Plunderer?

Bryce Wyne and his butler Freddie. I see what you did there, Ewing.

Well, it's long been sort of canon that the Daily Planet staff exist in the Marvel Universe, somehow. So, why not?

Looks as if the Skull's cameras are on Bryce and Freddie. Guess it didn't come out that Cap had become a Skrull agent in this Cage's version of events.

Yep! To both.

I could write more about the cameras, but that would spoil the end of issue reveal/cliffhanger. :D

A Skrull agent? The Skrulls don't have anything to do with this.

You know what our problem was in previous Thanos fights? We weren't using enough swords.

Guillotine, a french superhero with a magical cursed sword. She was made for the Contest of Champions game, as well as the comic Ewing wrote last year.

I really love the idea of Danielle Cage growing up to be Captain America in every timeline.

I don't. Its a heavyhanded way of trying to enforce your storyline into everyone else's storyline. And it just doesn't work. The only way to push your idea through is to make it more appealing than all the others.

That's just you. You're exaggerating and you're being silly, because Ewing isn't "enforcing" anything into any other storyline. Where did you even get such a ridiculous idea? That's obviously not what's happening.

It depends on his influence. We see this with other writers all the time. Someone writing a story where Danielle Cage manifests energy powers? Editor can squash it because it offends Ewing. Writers do this kind of territory marking all the time. It's stupid dick measuring.

Sorry, but now you're taking nonsense and you clearly don't know Al Ewing.

Also, why would Danielle Cage have energy powers? Neither of her parents have that kind of powers.

I don't know Al Ewing's work at all, no. Its notorious that writers influence how other writers are permitted to handle creations they've worked with, though, and not always in a good way. If you think he wouldn't protest to the editors if the next writer said "I'm going to kill off Danielle Cage for someone else's angst," then I am definitely wrong.

Suggesting that a metahuman would only have their parent's exact powerset is ridiculous. Metas are notoriously mutative.

From: [personal profile] lamashtar
I know. Its an extreme example, much like Geoff Johns ban on killing Stargirl. But that is how that sort of thing works, and its willful denial to pretend it doesn't exist.

I mean, I think Danielle seems pretty good? Its just it feels like all other stories about her are being closed off. Its a claustrophobic destiny, much like people who insist so-and-so MUST fall in love with so-and-so. I love Mary Jane and Peter. I love Jean and Scott. But the fiat rankles.

Of course writers should control their characters during their interims. I'm referring to the tendency of certain writers to control how the characters are written by other writers when they are not the ones in control anymore. How does this not feel like dick measuring to you? Once you don't write that character anymore someone else makes the decisions.

I imagine recent events in Ultimates had her muttering "Dammit Galactus! I thought I'd finally found a way to get rid of him and not have his ghost stuck to me like a barnacle!"
