Al Ewing is the current architect of the new Marvel Multiverse, post-Secret Wars. Possibly because no one else wants to do it. He has mapped the emergence of the eighth version of reality, the way it has made the element ISO-8 stable and useable as a source of power, as well as the excursions into our reality from survivors of previous iterations of the who mish-mosh of everything.
But in today’s Ultimates 2 #2, with Travel Foreman, he also seems to intimate that what was lost is still around.
Everything lives? The others? Hey, didn’t DC Comics just do this with Superman?
Ultimates2 #2 is published today.
