IN GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY

#WESTANDWITHRENEEANDLOIS

In Lois Lane (2019) #1, Lois Lane uncovers a financial conspiracy that involves the U.S. government and its foreign policy. At a White House press meeting, Lois questions the White House press secretary Lee-Ann McCarthy. Specifically, she mentions the U.S. government’s donations from financial companies in exchange for earmarks to build concentration camps for immigrants. Pointedly, Lois asks if the government is funding the separation of children from their families.

Immediately, Lois is stopped, escorted outside and removed from the White House press corps. Later, Lois contacts Renee Montoya to begin her investigation. A propos, during the Trump administration, the President’s ICE raids unfortunately led to many immigrant families separated at camps. In addition, in keeping with the comic’s title, Donald Trump called the press the “Enemy of the People.” Certainly, #WeStandWithReneeandLois against financial corruption.

#WESTANDWITHMILESMORALES AGAINST BETRAYAL

In Ultimate Comics Spider-Man (2012) #8, Uncle Aaron reveals Miles Morales’ secret. To begin, Uncle Aaron infiltrates the Brooklyn Visions Academy. In the courtyard, he apprehends Miles and his friend Ganke. Before Miles can meet his uncle, he tells Ganke to go to his room. Dangerously, Uncle Aaron reveals to Miles that he knows his secret. Moreover, he tells the mutant that the Oz spider that bit him was delivered by him.

Before Aaron can go any further, he is interrupted by the school principal. Soon, he is escorted out. In Ultimate Comics Spider-Man (2012) #10, Spider-Man and Prowler meet on the rooftops. After a brief scuffle, Uncle Aaron blackmails Miles to work with him. As matter of fact, he wants the boy as his enforcer against the supervillain named The Scorpion. Or else he will tell Miles’ father about his secret, who is “an anti-mutant hypocrite.”1 Together, #WeStandWithMilesMorales against betrayal.

#WEDEFENDTHANOS’ SACRIFICE AS NON-CANON

In Marvel Universe: The End (2003), Thanos gains the Heart of the Universe. Eventually, Thanos makes a sacrifice to save the Universe.

With the power source, Thanos effectively becomes omnipotent. Though the act is admirable, let’s list the reasons why the story is non-canon.

5. AKHENATEN

To begin, the first apparent reason is the changed history of pharaoh Akhenaten. Indeed, the basic elements of his story remain the same as Earth-616 continuity. Importantly, he was pharaoh in Egypt and was born in Thebes.

Then, he married Nefertiti. Outrageously, he stopped the polytheistic worship of Amun. Instead, he imposed the monotheistic religion of Aten. Due to his blasphemy, the gods of Egypt cursed him. After, his history diverged.

In 1334 B.C., while in the Valley of the Kings, he was taken by aliens known as the Celestial Order to be one of their chosen representatives. Initially unable to grasp his situation, Akhenaten was driven mad. Upon regaining his wits, Akhenaten was taught of the Heart of the Universe, a powerful cosmic artifact that would turn those who possessed it into a living god on par with the most powerful cosmic entities in the Marvel Universe. His mind danced with insanity for nearly 2000 years as he struggled to understand the scope of the astral revelations showed to him by the Order. He spent one century to master the Heart’s powers and two thousands years to earn the Order’s trust.

-Amenhotep IV (Earth-4321), Marvel Database

4. THE HEART OF THE UNIVERSE

In the six-issue mini-series, Thanos seeks the Heart of the Universe in order to gain ultimate power. In fact, the Heart of the Universe grants its possessor true omnipotence and omniscience over the universe. After possessing the power source, Thanos defeated Akhenaten.

However, this powerful artifact does not exist in the mainstream Marvel Universe. In fact, it appears it can only act on a specific universe. Though, it allows Thanos to absorb all the cosmic entities even the Living Tribunal, the Marvel Multiversal Judge.

3. EARTH-4321

In question, the reality is Earth-4321. When Thanos gains true omnipotence, his senses are heightened to the astral level. Here, he sees all of Marvel Earth-4321’s history and realizes there is a fatal flaw.

Indeed, the continued resurrections of heroes after tragedies have fractured the astral fabric of the universe. For this reason, he laments the Almighty’s actions whom he has replaced.

2. THE ALMIGHTY ABANDONS THE UNIVERSE

In his awesome omniscience, Thanos realizes the One-Above-All has departed the Earth-4321 universe. And unable to repair the fatal flaw, he elects to act in true Thanos fashion: Destroy the universe.

When the heroes and the cosmic entities realize the Mad Titan’s move, they confront him. But, it is too late. True to form, Thanos absorbs the heroes, absorbs the cosmic entities, absorbs even Living Tribunal, and finally the Earth-4321 Universe.

1. THE EDITORIAL TEAM STATED THE STORY IS NON-CANON

In the mini-series, it appears Thanos has the last word. Though he sacrifices himself in the end in order to restore the universe.

Nevertheless, Marvel’s Executive Editor Tom Brevoort has stated that the mini-series is not part of mainstream continuity. Therefore, it is non-canon.

FOR THANOS: HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF TO RESTORE THE UNIVERSE

At the end of the universe, only Thanos is left. Or so we think. In fact, Adam Warlock and Franklin Richards survived in a parallel dimension. Soon, Adam opens Thanos’ eyes to his foolhardy actions. When he realizes what must be done, Mistress Death appears to both.

For the first time, she speaks and congratulates the Mad Titan. With a final farewell, she kisses her lover then disappears into the nothingness. In order to set the universe aright, Thanos realizes he is the fatal flaw that must finally be extinguished. As he restores the universe, Thanos vanishes leaving no memory of his existence.

AGAINST THANOS: HE DESTROYED THE UNIVERSE

In Marvel Universe: The End (2003) #5, Thanos faces the Marvel Universe assembled. However, the assemblage of Marvel’s cosmic entities and heroes is no match for the Mad Titan.

In his omnipotence, Thanos absorbs the heroes, cosmic entities, including Infinity, Eternity, the Living Tribunal and the universe within himself. Nonetheless, Thanos finds himself in nothingness and grieves his actions.

#WEFEARVENOM IN THE BEST MARVEL COMIC OF 2021

Triumphantly, King in Black is the Best Of The Year for Marvel. Since Secret Wars, the crossover event has been building up. Importantly, the Marvel Universe is threatened by a menace older than the universe: Knull. As the God of the symbiotes, he has set up an army to extinguish all light in the Marvel Universe.

And when he attempts to recruit Eddie Brock, the villain rejects his offer. Significantly, the important development in the series is the successful redemption of Venom into a hero. Indeed, this is the reason why King in Black is the best Marvel comic in 2021. Finally, #WeFearVenom as the terrifying and new King in Black.

During the series, Eddie Brock actually dies at 4 Yancy Street. In fact, Knull has invaded Earth with dragons and turned Earth’s mightiest heroes into symbiotes. Angrily, Dylan Brock uses his connection to the HIVE to free Cyclops, Human Torch, Invisible Woman and Thor. In King in Black (2021) #4, Cosmic King Thor fights Knull but is eventually defeated.

At the end, Silver Surfer arrives with the God of Light, none other than the Enigma Force. Soon, it leaves Surfer and heads to 4 Yancy Street. There, it resurrects Eddie as the new Captain Universe. In the end, God Venom defeats Knull with the cosmic Axe fused from Mjolnir and Surfer’s surfboard. With the symbiote army free, the Enigma Force departs. Finally, Venom is the King in Black.

#WEOPPOSEBLACKADAM AND ASYLUM FOR CRIMINALS

In Doomsday Clock, Prime Earth is divided by the Supermen Theory. In fact, 97 percent of metahumans on Earth are of American nationality. According to the theory, their existence is due to a superhuman arms race between governments. As a result, many nations have created their own superhuman teams. Notably, Russia has created the “People’s Heroes.” Indeed, their objective is to defend against “America’s manufactured metahumans.”1 Furthermore, the Justice Leaguer Firestorm has been angered at his purported links to the theory.

In Doomsday Clock (2018) #5, Black Adam makes a public announcement. As Batman intercepts Adrian Veidt in the Owlship, the police pursue in the air. In fact, Veidt is wanted for the purported assassination attempt on Lex Luthor. As the Owlship hurtles down after being hit, Batman watches the Black Adam report. Sinisterly, the former JSAer invites all persecuted metahumans to Kandhaq for asylum. Though a welcome gesture, we suspect it was to build Kandhaq’s own metahuman criminal army. Hence, #WeOpposeBlackAdam and asylum for criminals.

In 'Doomsday Clock' (2018) #5, Black Adam offers asylum to persecuted metahumans on Kandhaq.

AGAINST BLACK ADAM: HE HARBORED KNOWN SUPERVILLAINS AND VIOLATED THE AGREEMENT AMONG NATIONS

In Doomsday Clock (2019) #8, Firestorm accidentally commits terror. Illegally, Firestorm enters Russia’s airspace to clear his name. When the “People’s Heroes” confront him, Ronnie accidentally turns civilians into glass. Then, he escapes. In Metropolis, Clark and Lois watch the news report. Immediately, Clark changes into Superman and heads for Kandhaq.

There, he greets Black Adam and is in search of Firestorm. Quickly, he notices the Creeper and Giganta. Clearly, Black Adam is harboring known supervillains. Sternly, Superman scolds the head of state for his breach. Specifically, it is the agreeent for metahumans to not cross any nations’ borders without sanction. In addition, Black Adam metes out justice without due process. For his part, Superman is the only hero authorized to cross nations’ borders.

Though, Black Adam is not really a humanitarian nor activist. As a head of state, he defends the Supermen Theory. In fact, he claims some metahumans in Kandhaq were part of it. Certainly, he plans to raise his own metahuman army.

#WEDEFENDCYBORG AND THE INTELLECTUAL RIGHTS OF INVENTORS

In ‘Cyborg’ (2016) #9, Cyborg turns himself in due to the Federal Cybernetic Registration Act. At the JLA Watchtower, Cyborg convenes a meeting with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam. Imminently, the Federal Cybernetic Regulation Act will pass in Congress. After the Technosapien Invasion, anyone infected with cybernetic enhancements will be detained indefinitely. Under so-called National Security, their tech will be made to comply. As Aquaman states, it is a means of control. To this end, #WeDefendCyborg and the intellectual rights of inventors.

At the Batcave, Cyborg hacks into N.S.A. databases to find the concentration camps. There, he finds three locations off the grid operated by a company called Cyber-Tech. No wonder, Cyber-Tech is lobbying for the legislation. In the draft, the same company will outfit every detainee with a standard Remote Access System Override Sequencer. In other words, Cyber-Tech will replace Cyborg and others with their standard microchip. At Amnesty Bay, Cyborg reveals his plan to turn himself in to federal agents. In fact, Cyborg knows his body will be disassembled and his tech reverse-engineered.

FOR CYBORG: CYBORG EVOLVED TO BECOME FULLY HUMAN

At Amnesty Bay, Cyborg makes a revelation to his friends. In fact, he hasn’t shared his secret with anyone yet. Since he trusts them, Cyborg shows them he has become fully human. In fact, his tech has evolved to re-grow Victor’s body fully. Now, the boundaries between man and machine have been blurred.

Before, Dr. Silas Stone had intellectual rights over Cyborg since he invented his tech. Now, with Cyborg fully human, he can no longer be considered a machine. Indeed, he is Victor Stone. Nevertheless, Victor complies since he plans to infiltrate Cyber-Tech and find out their operation.

AGAINST CYBORG: IN A RUSE, CYBORG FOUGHT FELLOW JLAER SHAZAM

Since Cyborg planned to surrender, he needed a diversion. In a staged fight, Cyborg was going to clash with fellow JLAer and friend Shazam. In fact, Shazam was going to be pro-Regulation. On the other hand, Cyborg was going to be against-Regulation.

But, resisting arrest would diminish Cyborg’s status as a Justice League member. In fact, given the nature of his tech, it would make Cyborg “Public Enemy #1.” Officially, a potential conflict between the government and the Justice League.

#WESTANDWITHLUKECAGE AND THE WRONGFULLY ACCUSED

In ‘New Avengers’ (2006) #22, Luke Cage stays and fights the Superhero Registration Act. In Harlem, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel are present at Luke Cage’s home. Urgently, they are coaxing him to sign on to become a member of the Avengers. At the stroke of midnight, the Act becomes law. From then, the Avengers will become a legal team with pay and benefits. In addition, Luke has the chance to expunge his troubled past. Without a doubt, #WeStandWithLukeCage and the wrongfully accused.

Despite their insistence, Luke won’t sign. Disappointed, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel depart. Quickly, the former Power Man decides to send Jessica Jones and baby Danielle away to Toronto, Canada. Desperately, Jessica attempts to convince Luke to seize their money and run away to Canada with his family. But, Luke protests he needs to set an example for his home Harlem and vows to make the people responsible pay. Soon, Jessica departs with the baby for Toronto, Canada. At the stroke of midnight, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents confront Luke Cage.

FOR LUKE: AFTER LUKE STAYED TO FIGHT, HE JOINED THE SECRET AVENGERS

In the dark, Luke Cage is sitting in the living room. Furtively, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents arrive at his doorstep. Quickly, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Gabriel Jones introduces himself. When he tells Luke he wants a word with him, the hero says he is occupied. However, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents will not go away. In response, Luke busts through the door with the sofa, beating down on S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Soon, they fire at Luke with genetic paralyzers.

After a brave battle, S.H.I.E.L.D. have the rebel on the ropes. Within a moment, Luke falls down the building. Unfortunately, Luke is down on the floor. Shockingly, one of the bystanders in the neighborhood reacts by shooting his shotgun at the agents. As a result, the people rise and start throwing projectiles at S.H.I.E.L.D. At that moment, Captain America, Iron Fist disguised as Daredevil and Falcon fly in. Quickly, these Secret Avengers make short work of the law enforcement. Soon, they depart with Luke Cage.

IN REDEMPTION

#WESTANDWITHDAREDEVIL AND THE INCARCERATED

In ‘Daredevil’ (2021) #25, Daredevil accepts responsibility for his actions. Previously, Daredevil killed a man and is now serving a two-year term for manslaughter. In appearance, Daredevil’s act is meant as an example for other superheroes. In ‘Daredevil (2021) #24, the hero pled guilty because of Elektra’s bid for Hell’s Kitchen. Successfully, Elektra won the bid for Hell’s Kitchen with the money she stole from the Stromwyns.

With the assurance that Hell Kitcken’s is safe, Daredevil accepted responsibility for his actions. Though The Man Without Fear has proven time and again his commitment for justice. At the same time, Daredevil has shown he struggles with the morality of his actions. Nevertheless, #WeStandWithDaredevil and the incarcerated. Furthermore, we commend his example to hold superheroes accountable for their actions.

In 'Daredevil' (2021) #25, Daredevil serves a two-year sentence for manslaughter in order to serve as an example to Hell's Kitchen and superheroes.

DAREDEVIL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR NEIL RIVATE’S DEATH IN PRISON

According to online debate, Neil Rivate’s death is Daredevil’s reckoning. Serving his two-year sentence, Daredevil befriends Neil Rivate. Later, Daredevil protects the smaller Neil in the shower from three inmates. The following day, his therapist Doctor Hayes summons him. Tragically, the hero finds out Neil was found dead in his cell from suicide. Unfortunately, Daredevil feels responsible for the death since he put him into prison. However, Doctor Hayes states Spider-Man is the one who apprehended Neil.

In “Supreme” (2017), Matt Murdock successfully argued for superheroes to be a legal identity. Hence, they could testify in court. During that time, Matt changed from a defense to a prosecution attorney. No longer the champion of the oppressed, Matt prosecuted ciminals, including Neil. Thanks to a new law by the Supreme Court, Daredevil was granted legal status. When Daredevil was prosecuted for his crime, his secret identity was protected by his cowl. Nevertheless, as Daredevil or Matt Murdock, the hero has not stopped fighting for justice.

Moving forward, Daredevil’s prison term can be a positive example. Essentially, with his trial, other superheroes may be granted legal identity. Importantly, this helps protect their civilian identity, friends, families and loved ones.

Furthermore, it may eventually help solve the problem of collateral damage. In a sense, property damage and losses of lives can hold superheroes and villains more financially liable. Similarly, Juggernaut‘s attempt at reformation addressed the matter in his series.
