It's, kinda, over everyone!

Nazi Steve is gone!
He isn't, he's just arrested and will inevitably be back.
Real Steve is back!
Kinda, he's a re-creation of Steve from the memories of a sentient cosmic cube. Yay.
Everything's gonna be great again!
Legacy looks incredibly boring and uninspired.

In better news:


These look rad as hell!

    And the real reason I started a new thread

    THE RIDE NEVER ENDS. In response to the brief glimpse of a Hydra-ruled world that Nazi Steve briefly asserts onto reality, Nick Spencer and Axel Alonso commented:
    “Hopefully one day we get the chance to go back and show a little more of that.” said Spencer

    While Marvel EIC Axel Alonso added “It did occur to me there might be some stories to tell. I’m yet to receive a pitch but I’m open to it – there may be more metaphors to be found.”

    Yeah

    go back to the Nazi shit

    that's what everyone wants

    Nazi Steve reached a conclusion in quite possibly the stupidest way possible.
    IT'S almost impressive.

    Nazi Steve would probably be the worst alternate universe Steve right? Even Marvel Zombies Steve wasn't that bad; he just wanted to eat your brains, at least he wasn't a friggin' Nazi.

    it's funny because when you look at it, the only thing that changed at marvel was the quality of the books

    the hype game and corporate strategies were exactly the same

    it's amazing how much goodwill you can squander so quickly just by being really braggadocios about your shitty product

    As much as they had stuff I didn't like, that was definitely more personal preference. Post Secret Wars was just unquestionably lower quality.

    So apparently the Generations one-shots aren't time travel despite appearing to be time travel in every single way
    They are all just fantasy scenarios created by Kobik to give the heroes "enlightenment" via their original mantle holders.
    Except they aren't the real originals, just re-creations.

    So the only thing even more pointless than time travel.

    Nazi steve is really something that should really been an alternate universe story

    Should have been one of the alternate realities earth-65 Captain America encountered. Then she could have done the same thing she did to TrumpModok.

    They remember them but
    otherwise they appear to be in their own little pocket universes created by Kobik.

    Kobik is such a terrible creation. Like, on paper "sentient reality warping artifact with the mind of a small child" could be interesting but in reality she is just a walking plot device that does nothing other than fuck with characters history or reality

    Honestly, in some ways it reminds me of Hope, although Hope also had the whole teaser of "Is she Jean Grey Reborn!?" or not. Which Reminds me of how they teased Nu52 Batgirl, actually.

    Was there any actual consequence to Cthon possessing Wanda? Because that's usually what happens in the last issue of a crossover when it looks like all the heroes are beaten kinda thing

    She's cleansed of the possession and joins the Uncanny Avengers. Rogue briefly is like YO YOU WERE EVIL but then it is pointed out that basically all of them have been mind controlled or possessed in the past and were accepted back with open arms so it is shitty to not give Wanda the same chance.

    They really should have used something other than Chthon, cause that dude is meant to be well above just possessing a character to work with a Nazi. He's like an elder god.

    I will say that while I think Marvel is in the toilet right now

    All-New Guardians of the Galaxy is an absolutely fantastic book that is basically the antithesis of Bendis' run. All of the characters are pitch perfect and Duggan is working overtime to reconcile their MCU inspired versions with their past selves along with pushing the Cosmic MU forward in interesting ways.

    The art is also great, with the main storylines swapping between Aaron Kuder and Marcus To and single character focused interludes featuring guest artists like Frazier Irving and Chris Samnee.

    It's easily the best book the characters have been in since DnA's run ended, highly recommend it.

    But selling them as these incredibly important earth-shaking stories shot themselves in the foot because most of them are out by now and they're pretty much just inconsequential time travel one shots
