I can't see it's an interruption as they were entire storylines discarded in the shuffling (Superior Iron Man? Havok? Wasp? others I'm sure). To me, this was all an overblown, pseudo intellectual talk piece lacking action, gravitas and any real impact.

It's actually sad that due to timing, the "climax" of this was a non-event featuring a "battle" we saw better done in FF 200. And hey, we have Reed Richards, the worst most idiotic genius acting as you know, THAT stinks. As I said on another board, we've already seen it...Reed fixes Victors' face, but leaves Ben alone. You remember Ben, don't you Reed? The guy you swore you'd spend every minute trying to fix (because YOU caused it) and then when you had the power of the Creator you sent to be a Guardian of the Galaxy?

That would suck if in EVERY one of Reed's new universes, Ben was still the Thing wouldn't it?

Also, are we sure we trust Reed to design each of the new Multiverses?
#1 The one where Reed's a superhero
#2 The one where Reed is an omnipotent god-villain
#3 The one where Reed is the #1 porn star and chicks really dig him
#4 The one where Reed is president...
Although I guess with the whole family along, he'll have to behave somewhat.

Still, I was hoping for a post-SW main Earth where some of the current mish-mash was fixed...where the X-Men didn't have time-travelling counterparts, and where the Avengers wasn't Cap-but-not-Cap, and Thor-but-not-Thor, etc.
Ah well, just enjoy the show kiddies.
