    Let's review, shall we?
    • The Shi'ar Imperium was conquered by Vulcan (AKA Gabriel Summers), a Mutant Human, who instigated numerous wars of conquest.
    • The Kree Empire was conquered by the Inhumans, led by Black Bolt, who set off the T-Bomb which devastated countless worlds.
    • Majestrix Lilandra Nerimani was assassinated by Darkhawk (AKA Chris Powell), a Human.
    • The Phalanx invasion was led by Ultron, a robot created by a Human.
    • The Universal Church of Truth sprang into existence to worship the Magus, a corrupted version of Adam Warlock, who was created on Earth to be a perfect Human.
    • Sakaar was conquered by the Hulk, a Human.
    • The Phoenix (AKA Jean Grey) destroyed a Shi'ar planet.
    • Thanos is a member of the Eternal race, an offshoot of Humanity, and his father was born on Earth.
    So at what point do the various races of the universe say enough is enough and just blow the hell out of Earth?

    Well given the list, who would want to face a planet with the strength to beat THE 3 galactic empires (shiar, srull, kree), avoid being destroyed by Galactus, housed the beyonder and so on?

    The earth is a strategic and important place in the marvel universe, it's like a multicultural pit stop. Only on earth can you find so much diversity intraterrestrial, extraterrestrial, from other times and dimensions. The real question is, why are humans still going about as if nothing is happening? How can humanity as a whole not be affected by the super tech advancements, left over alien tech? The answer is , if the marvel universe was searching for any plausibility, humans would have at least expanded to other planets of the solar system.

    Humans are the next expanding empire.

    I guess you're forgetting Secret Invasion. That's ok, I don't blame you, that event wasn't very memorable.

    Yeah I'm going to have to agree. Humanity should basically been awakened. Mutants? Supers? The world knows aliens exist. Religion should be seriously questioned because the bible is thrown out the window.....except it even be mostly true except misinterpreted. The world has the tech to travel to other planets. They have the tech to colonize. There should be the seeds of a human empire growing.

    DC is the exact same way. The league has teleporters? Why do you need Supers for most things if the league has all this tech?

    Sorry to burst your bubble but aliens (or otherworldly consciences) are present in most religions. Archangels are not humans neither are Koran Djinn's. They are explicitly conscient and not human, being there before the creation of man, most religions just snuff those parts not being able to cope with such a reality.

    The supers are needed, they're prototypes of the new human.

    The problem is that comics take very little time with culture (regular life of aliens or hidden civilizations) there's only weapons and fighting and every new species is further more violent and deadly... sigh.

    Supers should affect their cultures and vice-verse. Right now, everyone is American regardless if they come from another dimension...:doh:

    Not to mention Galactus, scourge of the universe and murderer of uncountable trillions calls some of the people on Earth friends out of everything else in the universe. They beat him multiple times when far more advanced civilizations with millions years of advancements couldn't even slow him down. Universe ending threats have started and ended on Earth and the last few massive galactic wars were due to earth in some way. (Annihilation, War of the kings)

    Hell, Sue Richards killed a Celestial by herself once (unless that was retconned). Her son is potentially one of the most powerful beings in existence that the celestials had to check for themselves, Galactus is her homeboy and the Annihialtion wave started because of her family pissing off the negative zone for years.

    I'm just surprised it took this long for the powers that be in the universe to just obliterate the entire solar system.

    That writes itself...you could have big G come in to save the day becuase of that.

    plus all earth villains unite with heroes. That could be done well.

    He came back under his own control and went on to go after the bad darkhawks...i think it's largely unresolved, i think the shi har still blame him...but I think the "good guys" know what the deal was. I think the last time we saw him he was back on earth...notsure about that..project pegasus maybe?

    Him and quasar are just hanging out at the project? So much for saving the universe. Let's just hang out at a government facility and drink coffee all day. The FF and Avengers will take care of everything else.

    Wouldn't a story like this be a partial rehash of Marvel's Maximum Security story? That was also the result of a bunch of different alien races banding together to address the huge threat Earth is.

    DC did it way back... so nothing new... I would rather see marvel pick up one alien race and that we would see their point of view.

    Invasion was awesome, but it was largely new threats..and DCs alien species are not as iconic.

    This was something Valiant did that made it unique/interesting. Various comics were set in the future or past of the same universe, so you actually saw this progression where in 4000 A.D. humans as a species were fighting aliens and malevolent robots, then eventually going out into space and so on. There were entire series based entirely in the future in this set timeline, while still having others set in the modern era.

    Whereas both DC and Marvel only seem interested in exploring the futures of their universes in one-shot adventures, as "possible futures" etc. Even series like X-Force eventually became just a "possible future" with Cable acting as a modern-day hero when he teamed up with Deadpool and created his utopia, etc. There is no historical set time-line for the future.

    The only exception I can think of to this is Batman Beyond which, now that it has been brought into line with the New 52 (sort of, I think the only problem originally was Barbara Gordon being paralyzed, which has been changed, so now the only contradiction of the future world of BB might be things that are considered non-canon like The Dark Knight Returns). On the other hand, it might still be considered non-canonical by the DC higher-ups for all I know, or might be rendered non-canonical. In any case, it is only "near future", not on the same scale of the human race exploring other worlds or what have you.

    Basically the big two want their universes to exist in stasis, possibly because fans complain if they see "the future" of their various heroes and it's not what they want, or this is just the perception of the people in charge of them.

    EDIT: Oh, wait, I remembered the Legion of Superheroes. I think that's a good example of a future-set comic that is very much a mainstream DC property.

    Honestly I think the intergalactic forces are probably too scared of Earth at this point. Likely why the Skrulls resorted to (failed) subversion instead of force.
