America’s very cool speech in Ultimates 2 #5
This was a good issue, where several members of the cast got to shine as they defeated their respective opponents. Then we got some answers what Simon Rodstvow is – namely that he isn’t human at all. He is something masquerading as a human. Something serving the same being that chained Eternity, drove Order and Chaos into becoming corrupted Logos and launching war across cosmic beings, claiming lives of Living Tribunal, In-Betweener and Celestials and restoring Galactus’ hunger. And that being? That’s something that was before the Multiverse. Before the previous Multiverse. Before any of 7 previous Multiverses. It’s the First Firmament, that wishes to consume everything and return back to old, simple times of one rule and one cosmos.
Totally not a jab at nostalgia-driven editors and writers, not at all.
