While not crazy we're continuing the "Old Man" arcs, do like the idea that to the rest of the universe, Earth being taken over by the bad guys isn't a major newsworthy event.

Even in "Hulk:The End" most of the universe was overjoyed when Hulk/Banner was the last human alive.

Jeez, is everyone getting an old man arc? I mean even DC got in in the act with Old woman Harley.

That said? I like how they made Old Quill look like movie Ego.

I'm holding out for Old Man Old Man.

Or Old Man Niles the Cat.

I'm hoping for an Old Man Black Fox. Which is just him in the regular Marvel universe, chilling with (stolen) video games.

I do kinda hope they do a an Old Man Banner story, if only to explain how Banner turned into what he was in Old Man Logan.

And why he suddenly acted like a Hill Billy.

Seriously.

Aren't there any MU futures that are nice?

*Remember's one where Kamala became president.*

Oh yeah there are. Good times.

Oh yeah, Old Woman Laura, where the villains tried the uber epic 'team up and murder heroes by the hundred, plunging the world into post-apocalyptic nonsense' routine, and lost. Badly. Because the heroes are better than them. Better organised, more competent, braver, smarter, loyal, etc and so on. I like that one.

As so many pointed out, the problem with the "all the villains work together" bit is how it's pretty damn impossible to get a few thousand twisted crooks and absolute sociopaths to become a cohesive unit.

I remember in "Crisis on Infinite Earths," Brainiac openly notes that while the villain army may outnumber the heroes five to one "they fight as a unit while our forces are reluctant to trust each other and divided."

I suddenly remember a Black Panther storyline where Doom talks of how he once used his time platform to explore about a thousand possible futures. And the only one where Earth wasn't a dystopia or outright destroyed was the one where Doom rules.

Well, given the last panel of this comic I think Doom might have been mistaken there.

Besides which, Researcher's bias is a thing, and I don't trust Doom to be objective in his research. Since there are infinite parallel worlds, a thousand is a drop in the bucket. Doom could have easily cherry picked futures that were shitty, then found the one where he ruled that was kind of sort of okay.

Also, Doom's the sort of egotistical ass that considers 'Doom is not in charge' as proof it's a dystopia.

Bast/The Panther God seemed to, though.

You know, I don't know why it didn't occur to me that this "Old Man" series was in the same continuity as the others, but I didn't and 'Planet of the Apes' ending was somewhat amusing.

Marvel space languages continue to be baloney, though.
"WHERE DID WE LAND?"
"...how do you not know that but still speak English?"

-"How do you not know that but still speak English?"-

Takes me back to when the Starjammers first appeared.
"You speak English?!"
"Doesn't everyone?"

Joe Quesada as EIC: We can't have a married Spider-Man. That ages the character too much.

Akira Yoshida as EIC: Where's that "Old Man Miles" script?

Okay, the fact that Doom apparently insists on having four of the five heads on Evil Mt. Rushmore gets a chuckle.

The fifth one is him without the mask, presumably.

I wasn't sure if that or an unfinished/damaged Red Skull. Skull's a big deal in the Old Man Timeline, right?

From: [personal profile] mazway_75
If this takes place after Old Man Logan then Skull is dead so obviously Doom is taking over.

I would like an Old Woman Storm. Or maybe an Old Widow dressed in her Infinity War concept art.

Didn't they kind of do that already, where an older version of Squirrel Girl showed up wearing Doom's armor?
