    What is 616?

    In the fictional Marvel Comics multiverse, Earth-616 or Earth 616 is the name used to identify the primary continuity in which most Marvel Comics titles take place, as well as being the Marvel Comics equivalent of our own universe.


    Everything you need to know about "616"

    Ok heres the point to this thread. You got a question you think is stupid come ask it here. No need to clutter up the forum with 800 threads about how far Mr. Fantastic can stretch. No one will make fun of you and ill make sure of it!:mad: . So ask away anything you want. Non-stupid questions are also welcomed.

    yeah, here's one: WTF is the "power cosmic"? seriously, define it. It supposedly makes SS one of the most powerful heroes out there, even moreso than Supes, but what the **** can it do? All I ever see him do is shoot energy blasts and ride that stupid surfboard. you'd think one of the most powerful energy sources in the universe would have some more uses than that

    What's with Marvels "no cosmic" ****? I mean, shouldn't that mean Thanos and Silver Surfer should be cancelled too? Marvel just doesn't like CM.

    I think that the no cosmic rule is BS. I dont belive they would really follow that. Anyways arent Thanos and Silver Surfer getting cancelled?

    I think the Power Cosmic is some energy originally owned by Galactus and all those buddies of his. He gave a little to Silver Surfer. Now, from what I read in Captain Marvel (the main character of which also has Power Cosmic), he can see into the future and change the shape, form, and process of any matter. (which I guess is how the energy blasts come out.) I think at one point Cap turned someone into a tree.:up:

    I dont think actually have a "no cosmic" policy. I think they just wanted to **** with Grant Morrisons Marvel Boy project, and then realized teh error of their ways, thus making Silver Surfer (who, at least, has a bigger fanbase)

    Nobody "owns" it. It's the energy left over from the big bang, what started the universe some 6 billion years ago. Almost all of The Elders of the Universe use it for one reason or another. The Champion used it to make himself more physically powerful, more agile, more endurant, tougher, and so on. Thanos taps into cosmic energy for a number of effects, and so on.

    Good thread by the way. :up:

    Mr. X's post brings up a good point:
    If you don't know the RIGHT answer, keep your damn mouth shut.

    Heh, I pretty much knew what you meant, I was just clarifying.

    The power cosmic can pretty much be used for anything. Rearranging molecules, levitation, energy blasts, healing, amping up your physical strength, amping up your speed, and so on. The Gardener uses it to continue on his insanly wide scale gardening. He used to use one of the infinity gems, but not anymore to my knowledge. The Runner, a flash like being, uses the energy to travel/react at insane speeds, a skill which he's honed over the years.

    Its not.

    The new 2099 books coming in September aren't either, but they're in a different universe from the 2099 books of the 90s.

    Well, as of September, technically, yeah.

    But if the 2099 books that are coming up do well, it will spawn a single book only (Kirkman, the writer, said he wanted to do Mutant 2099), so the upcoming universe won't be as expansive as the original.

    So theyll have a 2099 ongoing if the books sell well. Maybe it will work.

    I don't get why they didn't keep the 2099 universe the same and just not focus on the heroes who had come before. It leaves the door open for the previous 2099 characters, whom fans like, to come into the fold alongside the new 2099 characters, thus enriching the world if one of the MK 2099s goes on to become an ongoing. For a company that claims to want to streamline and simplify, Marvel sure is creating a bunch of new and unnecessary revamps of old concepts.

    Bah Captain Marvel visited the 2099 universe and met spider-man 2099 in his own book. So it must be canon
