Wolverine killed a person, therefore triggering a Butterfly Effect and rupturing the Space/Time Continuum.
You are OK with multidimensional raiders who don't really exist jumping from world to world, with the Illuminati blowing up other-dimensional Earths, with a non-existent Star Brand being delivered on Earth, and with brand-new characters Ex Nihilo and Abyss sending Mutation Bombs to Earth...but you're struggling with a concept that has actually been theorized about IN REALITY in the Butterfly Effect?
Really? Seriously? SERIOUSLY?
What, exactly, do you think Jonathan Hickman's going to tell you about the Builders that is going to make one bit of sense more than anything else you've ever read in a fictional world?
I'm sorry, people: Either it's all fucking stupid/ridiculous, or none of it is.
Ok, you talk about how baffled you are by how simplistic my explanation is but then you make a statement like "it's all fucking stupid/ridiculous, or none of it is." Look, you enjoyed Age of Ultron, I get it but I didn't. It wasn't my cup of tea. I can't really talk about the core Avengers title because I stopped reading it after the first arc but I have really enjoyed Hickman's New Avengers run. Having read the first 2 trades and the current singles of Hickman's Manhattan Projects series, I have complete faith that Hickman will be able to write a convincing explanation for the incursions and all that comes with them in his New Avengers title without having to be a slave to a concept that Bendis just
introduced. I have faith in Hickman, not in Bendis. It isn't that hard to understand that I like one writer's work over another writer's. So, yes, SERIOUSLY.
Also, I admit, one of the reasons that I have been enjoying New Avengers is because it is a Wolverine-less book. Yes, it would be a little bit of a let down to discover that the story that I have been enjoying so much, was actually brought about because of a decision that was made by Wolverine. I prefer my Wolverine-less books to be without Wolverine. Once again, not something that is hard to understand.
Hey, I am big enough to admit that there was one thing that I absolutely loved
about Age of Ultron. I loved
the fact that there was one panel of the final issue that featured Richard Rider. I love the fact that Nova Prime has not been forgotten and that we were given a glimmer of hope that he may return soon.
