I have too hard a time caring about stuff that don't actually effect the marvel universe. I'll probably read one or two issues and stop.

It's one of those things best left ignored and forgotten. Like how Scott Summers left his wife and kid after he found out Jean Grey was alive, or how Johnny Storms was married and cheated on.

Talk about the Loki: AoA series here!

I just caught up in the book today after I got around to reading the Original Sin Loki & Thor 1-4 tie in, and since it made a reference to Kid Loki it got me interested in trying the book since the end of Kid Loki's story in Journey into Mystery was incredibly dark and depressing and I have been hoping on the story getting continued after seeing Kid Loki is still inside of his body as a passenger in Young Avengers. I have to say this book is really fun and smart, and it keeps making references to all my favorite stories about Kid Loki.(Freeing Surtur, The New Mutants story, pissing off Mephsito a few times, etc.) The whole idea that Loki now has a sword that can break through any lie it makes me really hopeful the it will lead to Kid Loki regaining his body some how. I feel like since the writer has teased and referenced Kid Loki almost every issue that it has to be point to his return. Not to mention them talking about Loki's role in Axis having a "huge Loki moment for fans"

My current theory is that since the main villian of this story is Old Loki the Loki that will be, and the current Loki is trying to not become that Loki... maybe he will sacrifice himself just to win, and not become the evil Loki so that Kid Loki will get control of his body again.

This is for sure one of my favorite titles right now.

No it is not a mantle it is his name. You do not see anybody going around with Odin's powers because they lift his spear.

Haha the the multivariate/timeline is full of different All-Fathers and is even more of a mantle then Thor.

- The new female character could have the mjolnir and go by her name, like Beta Ray Bill ( he never call himself Thor), and like Freyja she is the all-mother and goes by her name, she didn't call herself Odin after being all-mother.

- I think that every culture is proud when others make a superhero of their myths, but when you start to ruin that myth it's not nice to the culture that created him.

- Marvel should understand that Thor is not a superhero like their other creations, because he "exist" outside of comics, and he is a part of the history to some countries in Europe.

Thor is the first Asgardian to become an earth super hero and participate in the super hero part of the world, so Thor isn't like Beta Ray Bill or any others so comparing him to others doesn't really work when a mantle needs to start someplace, and like I just said he was the first Asgardian to become a hero.

The second part of your post is kind of ridiculous. Marvel was inspired by the myths but they aren't retelling them and haven't been for the past 60 years. The world needs more creative risks not to just simply re-hash the same old stories. Marvel doesn't have to conform to any standards in an old story or legend. If you want to read stories like that, then just go read them. Things like this happen more then you realize outside of american comic books because like 40% of the animes and mangas that come out each year are based of historical legends/figures and all of them stem pretty far from the tradition versions of the legends.

I just read the original sin series and I didn't know that Bruce was the one who made Doc Green after messing with the extremeis code.

@greenscar1990: Just seeing Hulk standing there doesn't mean we know anything about Banner/Hulks state of mind. That could just be a cover since it has Iron Man on it who doesn't sound like he will be an Avenger during Time Runs Out since his personality is changed and he and Cap had a huge falling out. For all we know since Kluh is described as "the hulk's hulk" it could mean that Banner stays in the hulk body all the time and then becomes Kluh when he loses control.

@arthurkerr: So in other words you admit it's a mantle and just don't like it.

@teerack: what do you think about Goliath? I always liked that codename.

It's an alright name but I don't think it would be a good name for him to use again. I think he needs to go by Giant-Man/Ant-Man since he has explained before that when he was Goliath and Yellowjacket he was just trying to reinvent himself as an alpha male, and then when he was Doctor Pym and Wasp he was struggling to accept different things in his life, and he is most balanced when he was Ant-Man/Giant-Man.

@koays: It really just comes down to character expectations. I'm really enjoying the book because I don't see the O5 as old characters but new characters and I don't have any expectations about them because psychologically your mind/identity is defined as "The sum of our experiences accumulated over a lifetime" their life/experiences are totally different and the differences happen when they are teenagers which is the most defining era of a person. These O5 aren't making the adult version of them disappear so I don't see the point in consistently holding them up next to the adult versions of themselves as if they are replacing them.

I've always expected that if Bendis ever sends them home Jean's powers would be too far developed for Xavier to wipe their minds and it would end up retconing the X-Men/MarvelU, so I rather them not go back and become a mini version of a Flashpoint and just be their own individuals(which I think has become the theme of the book).

I'm a big fan of multivariate stories and I always liked it when people would see the different ways they could have turned out, and I just think the idea of the alternate life/versions of them living in the same world is really interesting since it provokes a lot of reactions from people with history with the adult versions.

I think it's the first and last perfect comic book.(As long as it doesn't drop the ball in the end lol) Probably going to stay my all time favorite.
