  1. I didn't like this issue. Your coverage of it: excellent! But no, not like. If the face value retcon of Beyonder as Mutant Inhuman was the point, it just doesn't work for me. If there's a deeper story being told, it's too subtle for my puny brain. I did get a hint they were going for something like that, with the heroes sunsetting into the Beyonder's pupil, like it was all his imagination/creation. But why, and were they really changing the Beyonder's origin? I don't know. And sadly, I'm too annoyed to care.

    And most importantly, if Secret War 2 didn't happen, what about Boom Boom????

    Boy, I do NOT like being Negative Ned. Again, it's the story involved, not the podcast. You guys did a great job with this. Let's find something better to put the 3 of you on together soon.

    Thank you guys, I guess we found all the answers from the great beyond! Since this is the truly, finally, concluding ending of Secret Wars 2.

    ... right? ...
