Yeah I know this isn't exactly major news, especially for comic book folks who've probably no doubt read this already but what the hell, I decided to go ahead and talk about it a little anyways.
Apparently, the Living Tribunal is dead. Basically the guy in the Marvel Universe who's held in making sure that the Omniverse Itself remains in balance, beneath the The One Above All (Pretty much God himself), he's held as being THE most powerful Marvel character due to the fact that he's basically the Big Guy who watches over all reality making sure nothing gets fucked over (Oh Good Job So Far).
He's been portrayed as being both all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-powerful. Only losing once to Thanos because of Thanos taking the Heart of the Universe for himself and the Infinity Gauntlet and the fact that this is Thanos we're talking about here and he's pretty much Darkseid and Aizen on Hacks.
But aside from that, the Living Tribunal has been the governing force controlling and governing all of the events in every Universe and Multiverse… Until Now.
So who could've killed him this time? Another Old and Powerful Villain like Thanos? Chaos King? Or Shuma Gorath? Or is this a completely new villain that nobodies heard of before?
But I think the best question to ask, as have most people asked righteously… Why Bother?
Yeah, surprisingly (And Thankfully) I think most of the responses for this most recent event have been rather negative with most avid comic book fans into the Marvel Cosmic Lore rolling there eyes in embarrassment and cringing in momentary yawns. Most of them are thinking the exact same thing which is: "Is this really freaking necessary?"
This is the same problem I have with many supposed GRAND comic books today and game companies like SquareEnix who write themselves into corners. When you kill off a supposed All-Powerful Character like this just to up to anti, sure it can sound cool at first and it can make your villain seem more powerful but with all the overpowered villains running around as of late it hardly seem necessary. I mean, if the Living Tribunal is done for, that means the only guy who's left to stop him is The One Above All himself, and they already did that against Thanos and that was risky enough done once as it was.
Or they could just add and pile up to the ever psychotic Cosmic Pantheon of the Marvel Universe.
All I'm saying is, if this has gone crazy enough to which I think the story is fucked, then Marvel has really gone off a bit much. I can't imagine how annoying this must be for people who aren't to the Comic Book Lore.
