It seems crazy that with all the horrors Cap saw in WW2, a swarm of killer space robots is what shakes his faith that their is a benevolent God out there.

Well, that and all these COLOR movies, nowadays. Yeesh.

Listen, I like a lot of Ellis work, but the idea that Captain America wasn't able to handle color movies is just dumb. The Wizard of Oz and Fantasia were out before World War II, Warren. Color movies were reserved for big budget pictures, sure...but the idea that someone as an adult in the 40s would somehow not be able to handle them? Does Cap also complain about all these 'talkies' too?

I'm willing to let the 'we all believed in God' nonsense to Cap's myopia. His belief that there weren't non-Christians in the US prior to 1945 unless you were a kook is obviously meant to say more about him than the world he came from.

First: A C.S.U. wonk named Barry. Classic.

Second: "Where I came from, everybody believed in God. And if someone asked too many questions about God, it was because they'd gone nutty from reading too many books."

Oh, Ult!Cap, never change. All those books sure do mess people up, don't they?

Original Galactus: a 50 foot tall dude with a tuning fork helmet and a purple skirt, who tools around the universe with a naked shiny guy on a surfboard.

Ultimate Galactus: a 100,000 mile long swarm of machine intelligences who drive a planet mad before devouring it.

Gimme OG any day.

I can see the thinking behind the changes, but as it is, Evil Robot Swarm was an old idea well before Mass Effect - which did it better, because at least the Reapers spoke. All that buildup of how alien and incomprehensible Gah Lak Tus is, and it turns out to be extremely comprehensible.

At least it's not a cloud.
