    Default Here Comes The New Universe - Avengers #3 Translated

    Here is a page from Avengers #3. It follows the preview seen here. Yes it's a replacement cipher. Yes, we were right about "It's coming". But as for the rest?

    I'm sure the Marvel AR will translate it for you. But if you can't wait (or if your iPad is broken) let me help.

    SPOILERS probably. In that you don't have to translate it yourself.

    THE WHITE EVENT

    THE BUILDERS HAVE ABANDONED THE MACHINES

    THE MACHINE IS BROKEN

    THE UNIVERSE IS BROKEN

    ITS COMING

    A WHITE EVENT
    And one final balloon on another page...
    MOTHER
    The White Event was the explosion that gave Marvel's New Universe characters their abilities. And in the end was revealed to be a self-perpetuating phenomenon.

    Could Captain Universe be Captain New Universe?

    Here's my alphabet if you want to have a go yourself...

    I translated this yesterday in the comments on the piece about the preview. It's "the builders have abandoned the machine" (no S at the end), and that last bit should actually be "Hello Mother".

    Oh, and note the symbols streaming out of his head there. It would appear this is the new Nightmask...

    Warren Ellis would be great writer for this!

    So I suppose buying digital version I'd have to translate it myself?

    Is there google translate for comsmilogical nonsense?

    Also would be a great tie in for Thor who had has a bad guy going back in the to stop creation.

    Only if it uses symbols you can type on a normal keyboard. To be fair, it only took me about 15 minutes to crack after I knew the first bit was "it's coming", and I'm hardly a code breaking genius

    Considering the overall tone of a good chunk of the comments around here, I wouldn't either if I were in his position. The tone here is typically exceptionally negative.

    Explain to me again why there can't be subtitles instead of stopping and picking up my iPad just to understand what's being said?

    Presumably it's just supposed to be an easter egg for those who bother to look. It's not fundamental to the plot of the issue or anything.
