@god_spawn: My last question: Would you rather be Prince of Asgard or its King? Also, you do realize that if you choose ruling Asgard over being a reporter, you would control Asgard's wealth and military, right?
Wouldn't really make a difference. Superman's new Phantom Zone projector can suck worlds inside and trap them there; it's an easy way to get rid of the Wave quickly. It took H'el a couple of days to build a device that could destroy the Sun from the stuff in the Fortress of Solitude -- now imagine those same resources are now available to people with a year to figure something out.
