Eh, her wardrobe and sword at least add up to it. Plus mythical patriarchs in pantheons have a habit of banging everything with a pulse so it's not that far fetched an editorial mandate.

Yeah this is the only Original Sin idea that I have heard about that I like so far, all the rest of them sound like complete garbage.

Ha, I had a laugh when investigating whether I should buy into Hickman's "God is Dead" (before I realized Hickman was the writer (pontificator? convolutor?)).

Issue 7's cover features the Japanese wind god and I thought awesome! (until I realized who the writer was).

Anyway, during quick google looking for sample pages, I spotted "God is Dead" 's take on the Norse Gods. That's when I realized the writer definitely was Hickman, a Marvel enthusiast.

"Blonde Thor" is a marvel invention... before Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Thor was inseparable from his red, stormy beard that bristled with electric current. And all the sources describe him that way... all the popular references, everything--Until Smilin' Stan Lee and Kirby changed history.

Better luck next time, Hickman. God, I hate what you did both to FF and New Avengers or Avengers or whatever title you wrote that centered around the Illuminati pontificating for 20 pages each issue.

What is DDD divided by 4? I think that is Marvel's algorithm.

You hate Hickman for making Avengers and New Avengers enjoyable to read?

Well there's Cap learning that Iron Man and the Illuminati mind-wiped him, but that was probably going to be revealed soon anyway.

Most of the stories in titles that tie-in were already being planned and worked on before they were told about the event and to tie their books to it. Mighty Avengers has been good, but its been nothing but an editorial mandate driven book.

Liker's gonna like.... :smt011

But, seriously, Jonathon Hickman's "hard sci-fi" (in which he "explains" the "science") wear thin on me because I don't find his explanations very convincing.

He also struck me as thick-and-heavy toward the end of his first "FF" run. It's like reading a dissertation on quantum mechanics written by an English major whose sole reference point is an article he read in Popular Mechanics last night.

"You'd do better just to call it magic and not try to explain quantum mechanics using highschool algebra."
