    That was established as being more reality manipulation from the mentally unstable Wanda from Disassembled.

    Have Wanda and Lorna ever really bonded as sisters?

    Those two?

    No.

    But she did play the sisterinlaw card with Crystal during all that War of Kings stuff a few years back which is when I was stumbling because I wasn't aware when they ret-ret-coned that she was Magneto's daughter again.

    Of course now that Crystal is married to Ronan?

    All the Inhuman Kings were equally married to Sue Storm a couple years ago, which would suggest that they're into polygamy, and if they weren't into polygamy before that moment, Blackbolt is an absolute Monarch and law skips along behind his whimsy.

    When a woman has more than one husband it's called polyandry.

    Are the Inhumans still running the Kree Empire? I forget.

    I've seen the Supreme Intelligence being a dick recently, when the Phoenix straffed the Kree, and Blackbolt is working with the Avengers so he's Earthbound and hell.. Medusa is a member of the Fantastic Four!

    Crystal stayed behind with Ronan, because she digs him and now it's his position and authority that keeps their house lit, and not hers as a member of the Royal Family.

    They were given a forced divorce by the Supreme Intelligence and Black Bolt.

    Oh dear. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the X-Men's 50th Anniversary...

    Oh, my.

    I just spent 5 minutes laughing after reading that Game of Thrones joke in Young Avengers.

    Your grandfather is locked away in a nursing home now, but 60 years ago, it's a safe bet that he was a dick. There's maybe a slim chance your grampies might have been Ward Cleaver in spirit, but it's far more likely he was Fred Flintstone with a drinking problem, if we ignore all that Dinosaur shit. Y'know, fun but trouble.

    Who the frak is Odin to decide who is and who is not worthy when he either has a mindset straight out of the 1960s or the 1160s, it must be insane the criteria for worthiness he must be using to judge all takers!

    "Killing a yak with your bare hands and skinning it in 10 minutes."

    or

    "If you only beat your wife if she really deserves it,"

    Odin locked two of his children into confined spaces for decades and deadbeat dad ignored the other till his own death bed... Why do I get the impression that everytime Odin had a daughter from some big boned bar maid, that he drowned the girl baby in a lake?

    And lets not get into the Odin sleep!

    "The world is ending? Fuck you! I'm taking a nap! Comeback next week."

    Or...

    "Don't wake your father, he wakes up surley and swinging."

    Gave up his eye for ultimate knowledge?

    Methinks he just had some brown acid.

    This whole "worthy" thing poeple have been dancing around since the 1960s is probably not as hard as it seems. Worthiness is probably just a ticking off a list of things to kill and things to frakk, although you'd be double worthy if you frakked all the stuff you were supped to kill.

    Worthy!

    (Indestructible Hulk. Nice read.)

    Thinking of not bothering with reading the rest of Age of Ultron. This whole thing is not affecting the main Marvel Universe in the slightest, and the story itself has just elicited a great big "meh" from me so far.

    Yeah I have to admit, given what I've heard about Age of Ultron - aside from maybe an 'okay' out of continuity story - I really can't be arsed to pay full price for that. Maybe when it's a .99cent digital Monday deal I might drop a few bucks on the series - but really, if its not going to really affect the Marvel U as a whole and is just basically yet another of Marvel's apocalyptic yet worthless stories... I'll just wait for it to hit Marvel Unlimited in a year...

    I'm done with Age of Ultron...this shouldn't have been made an "event" and kept as it was originally planned, as Bendis's grand finale arc. What's funny is that I much preferred his actual final "Avengers" arc to the first four issues of this mess.

    Honestly I think Bendis has run out of ideas - too many years with the same characters.

    Yet stuff like "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Ultimate Comics Spider-Man" are fantastic. He can be a frustrating writer at times.

    Superior Spider-Man #7 is the first issue of the series that I didn't particularly like.

    Two reasons.

    The Avengers were a bunch of homicidal dickwads itching for a fight.

    The Peter Parker ghost is annoying as shit. Especially now that he's gaining limited control over the body and Spider-Ock can "hear" him. (There's also something really wrong with Peter rooting for Wolverine to gut his body like a fish.)

    That covers it. :)
