Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Half-Naked Came The Angel Edition

by

Having now read the promised shocking reveal at the end of the (sort of) time-spanning events of Age Of Ultron, I’m impressed with how well Marvel editorial played the hype machine, to the point where the acquisition of a minor supporting character from a 20 year-old-issue of Spawn is the biggest news in comics.  Still, having TOLD US what was going to happen, the surprise is somewhat mooted, while the full ramifications of Wolverine’s careless impulsiveness are probably yet to be felt.  I do believe that the promises that this will be talked about for years were sincere, but I suspect that it will be of a technical bent, equivalent to using “Superboy punch” as panacea for any and all continuity concerns post-Infinite Crisis.  As giant crossovers go, this one was less invasive than most, and generally inoffensive in its fanboy machinations, begging a question…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that the bits involving Galactus would have been more meaningful seven years or more ago, asking: Are the events of Age Of Ultron #10 really enormous and meaningful to you?
