I was poking fun at that instance, is all. Back when that comic was published (early 80's) supernovas were considered one of the more uber forces in the universe--so back then, LT's feat likely was quite impressive. But next to feats characters are preforming nowadays, generating a supernova is literally nothing--well within a Herald's scope of power.

And I still find it hysterical that LT referred to a supernova as his "ultimate punishment", but then proceeded to seal Korvac in that universe for all time. Lulz @ the inconsistency.


Not necessarily an inconsistency, depends on how you look at things. Clearly the supernova attack was meant to destroy Korvac and as you said back then such an attack wouldve been more impressive than it seems now, so the attack was perhaps as far as LT was willing or able (considering the time of writing) to go in a physical confrontation. LT does have to after all weigh up the pros and cons of slugging it out to safeguard reality or just sealing away the threat to achieve the same thing. Kind of like how in his confrontation with Adam with the IG rather than initiate a full blown confrontation he referred to the level of destruction that would cause the reality he safeguards and instead dissuaded Adam from such an outcome. So when his so called "ultimate punishment" failed (named so because clearly its the highest level of destructive feat he was willing to undertake in executing his role) LT retreated and sealed off the universe smile

Feels like you're just looking for an argument... Even when there's not one to be had.

Sorry for the necro bump, but in light of Infinity Finale, I thought this should be included:

It turns out that Thanos only possessed "a fragmentary glimpse" of TOAA's power, perceptions, and motivations after merging with THOTI during The End.

Yep. Said power also dwarfed 'classic' LT, who is ~/> the IG, according to Starlin himself. thumb up

The best part is that Starlin wrote all of these arcs, so people can't even defer to the old "but that wasn't Starlin's original intent!!!1!!11!" line of argumentation that would have undoubtedly been thrown around, had that scene been written by anyone else.

So yeah:
THOTI = "a fragmentary glimpse" of TOAA's complete power >>>> LT ~/> IG >>> the rest of the universe.


Settled. happy
