And what is Ex Nihilos problem? It's like he's allowed to chill on Mars because that eternal god lady let him go in issue 3 but it's just not all adding up and getting kinda annoying to look through and try to 1. Remember what happened last issue 2. Try to understand how the issue we are reading fits into the whole picture
Ex Nihlo tried to turn the Earth into a sentient being. The bombs were designed to set up a different function a sentiment being needs to survive.
I'm assuming Capt. Universe cut the deal with the Avengers to let him stay because he'd be needed later on to deal with the Universe being "broken." My guess is the Avengers relented because they really didn't have a way to deal with him and his sister, except to kill them. Which I assume that would have been nigh impossible.
