It felt very trippy at the start :oldyella: Overall it was a good issue, pretty interesting stuff so far. What about you, Harv? What did you think of it?

Wow. Multiversity is every bit as fantastic as I thought it would be. Morrison is nothing short of a maniacal genius. :oldyella:

Spoiler: show
I loved the Avengers and Fantastic Four parody. :oldyella:

That was my favourite part of the first issue. Reminded me of
Spoiler: show
the Illuminati fighting a couple of Justice League/Society parodies over at Marvel.

It was definitely amusing but I guess if some DC fans felt slightly insulted with Marvel's version of the Justice League (in New Avengers #s 16-21, which is the story arc where I started reading), then this was what they felt :oldyella:

I'm just glad Aquawoman's a thing here ;)

So uhh, can anyone clarify to me how the other issues are going to be called? They're not just going to be "#2" or "#3," are they?

I know #4 is Pax Americana - you check the DC site?

Pax Americana gave me a mindgasm . This series as a whole gave me a mindgasm . The Multiversity has reminded me why I love Grant Morrison .

Read the last issue of the Multiversity a couple of days ago. Now that the series is over I thought that it might be interesting to discuss it in more detail.

Currently I am rereading the whole series because I want it to review it soon in a friends podcast. Takes a lot of time if you don´t want to miss any of the details. You really have to take it slow.
So far I think this could have been Morrisons best work. It might even change my view on the comic industry since there seems to be a lot of criticism towards it.

What are youre thoughts on the series as a whole? Do you think Multiversity #2 offered a satisfying conclusion to the story? Would be cool if you could share your opinion with other Multiversity readers on this thread.

Multiversity is an amazing comic. The ideas it presents man it is so mind-boggling and it changes my perspective on comics.

This evening I´ll reread Society of Superheroes. I wonder how I´ll rank all the issues when I am finished. So far I would mostly agree with your list, Pieter.

There is something that really bothered me when I thought about some of the issues in this series today.
When I first read Pax America I really liked the "Dog Scene" which to me was a really cool critique to Alan Moores habit of deconstruction the classical superhero archetypes when I first read it.-



Isn´t Morrison more or less doing the same thing all the time? In Mastermen for example we have morally ambiguous Nazis and American Freedom Fighters who act more like Terrorists.

Spoiler: show


Really have to reread that issue. If these things only happened due to influence of the Gentry it would be consistent with the rest of the books themes. The presence of that house like creature whose name I don´t recall seems to imply that they have been messing with that Universe for a long time.
