"What motivates anyone to risk destroying the [universe]? Sometimes, it’s because things have changed around them, in ways they feel have threatened or marginalized them, and they’re trying to take control—or maybe, deep down, just lashing out at an enemy they feel has humiliated them somehow. As above, so below. Maybe Order and Chaos want to ‘take their reality back,’ to coin a phrase." -- Al Ewing

He changed into a Final Fantasy final boss.

Sounds like the instructions in a "Build your own Titan" kit. The Hundred-Handed ones approve.

*Cue Shin Megami Tensei music*
Can't be the only one thinking it.

But in all seriousness...
Poor In-Betweener.
(Still, he could... still be okay. The next issue suggests Order and Chaos are still in there... so maybe Betweeny is as well. Right? ... right?)


Y'know, the more this goes on, the more it seems Voght is not Up To Something, but is just a guy with an unfortunate job he has to do.
It's almost, but not quite as creepy as that thing up there, if only because Voght is human.
Still, that "I fear winter" bit sounds slightly manipulative. So there's hope.
Or, ah, the opposite, really.

Also, props to Ewing for continuing the running thing of "New Universe characters, but with the names slightly tweaked" Hickman introduced.
Also also, props to Ewing for remembering the New Universe.
Man must be cheating at this point.

Also also also: Tensen fears winter. This story takes place at X-Mas time.
Think Tensen might just be onto something...
(And I think we've all had one of X-mases just like that, amirite.)

The key to killing Logos quickly is killing the right side first, because it heals and can revive the other parts.

(This also short-circuits that nasty move the head can do that hits the whole party for no good amount of damage.)

Problem is Logos probably has ungodly levels of health (and is almost certainly a higher level than the player can reach. And has the programming on their side.)

Logos comes with his own logos, I see.

I feel like for everything people complain about Nick Spencer doing wrong, Al Ewing is there as a counterbalance.

I fail to see why they keep referencing New Universe names (apart from changing the spelling slightly in some cases) for characters who have bugger all to do with their original versions.

Same-ish name, vaguely similar character.
Like the Ultimate universe.

It's just picking up what started in the Avengers run that led into Secret Wars- there, we got Kevin Connor, the Starbrand of 616.

...
Does that mean Earth-1 was the Ultimate universe before the Ultimate universe?
Because it does sort of sound like it...

The last panel would be a kickass album cover.

Man, the universal reset did not do pretty much any of the cosmic pantheon any good at all. Eternity in chains, Order and Chaos have taken a level or two in jerkass, the Celestials are in hiding (and now nearly wiped out), the whole mess that was going on in Starbrand and Nightmask...

In their defence, the Celestials were nearly wiped out beforehand by the incredibly bland and pointless Beyonders.

And [SPOILERS] the next issue has Galactus suggest Order's not himself at the moment.


But hey, Infinity's doing alright. And the Never-Queen's all fine and dandy.
No word on Oblivion or Origin or those other folk.

Oblivion seems to be okay. He's shown up in the GLA comic, after Doorman for not doing his Deathurge job.

I get the feeling Death will be benefiting quite a bit from the new status quo.

Wonder what Jim Starlin thinks of Adam Warlock/the new Living Tribunal being disintegrated about 5 minutes after his apotheosis?

From: [personal profile] scorntx
Knowing Jim Starlin? He'll probably feel the need to write another STIRRING EPIC about Thanos "fixing" everything because he's Thanos and he's great and everyone else is dumb.

Weren't Order and Chaos always jerks though?

I had thought I remembered the two of them as being on the more benevolent end of the spectrum, but I could be wrong.
