Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)
Well the storyline that brought him back in - and I think how they wiped away the previous Nathaniel Richards, was that there were like a lot of alternate realities and each had a Nathaniel Richards and each of them were being hunted by their Celestials or something and of course they had a story where all those alternate Reeds who also hunted down their Dr. Dooms, killed them or made them slaves.
I need to go back into my Marvel Digital Unlimited database and see what issues those were. But yeah it was a weird storyline - the way they played it was that this Nathaniel Richards IS this Reed's real father. All the others were from other realities and he's the last one left because
