Reed has constructed earth-busting tech he calls "WorldWorm". Said tech delivers a microscopic singularity into the core of a planet, thereby destroying it: http://i.imgur.com/xN5kLvL.jpg
He originally used Anti-Matter for this purpose, but now prefers WorldWorm as it is a much more tidy means to the same end.
Reed continues to prove a very interesting and creative character. I like the way he can talk with Thanos, he isn't treated like an underling by Thanos. More like equals. Although that is more me looking into things.
Here's to hoping he gets an even more in depth role (given that he appears on the cover for Secret Wars #3 and he is in the leaked Secret Wars #0 comic too).
It's good because it isn't like one of them characters that is hedging their bets and acting like something he isn't in front of a character. He gives off the aura that he shouldn't be messed with. It's actually very rare for any character in comics (barring the high Abstracts for someone to not be intimidated by Thanos). Makes it a feat in itself.
Firstly I wanted to take the time to thank you for making such an excellent thread. After reading the first few issues of Secret Wars, I scoured the internet looking for a complete list of Ultimate Reed's feats because he seemed ungodly smart, and this thread was by far the most all inclusive thread I could find on the web. It was actually the reason I decided to finally sign up for KMC. Spectacular stuff!
As for my question when you get time would you mind explaining how Ultimate Reed escaped the N zone after this scene?:
I'm also curious when it was that he officially became the MAker and decided to build his perfect society?
Thanks for the props, Don. Glad you enjoyed the thread so much.

In the wake of the specific battle you're inquiring about, Reed finally realized that the heroes would likely never share his [skewed] ideals on how to 'fix' the earth and its inherent problems. After coming to this realization, Reed concluded that it was up to he alone to "solve everything"...
