A Misconception About Marvel's Abstracts=[edit]

In the Thanos Imperative, Aegis, along with Galactus and the Celestials, is constantly referred to as being "abstract". This is either a gross error on Dan Abnett's part or it upsets everything stated in preceding references like The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universes and canonical series like Quasar. Abstracts are exactly what the word connotes: they are metaphysical. Occasionally, they assume physical appaerance through tailored manifestations, but even so they don't take direct phyiscal action against lesser beings (if they did, cosmic superheroes would be rather pointless). Eternity, Infinity, Death, Oblivion, Lord Order, and Master Chaos are all abstracts, and when they find a mortal threatening their interests, they have all worked through physical agents rather than reach out with an omnipotent hand and annihlate the offender. Aegis is not abstract. She's a corporeal beings of immense power, and that is why she can float around in space blowing up cancerverse starships while Eternity and the other true abstracts have to sit back behind the scenes. None of this means she can't use M-bodies; as was explained in the issue of Quasar that covered the subject, powerful non-abstract entities also have manifestation forms created for special purposes.

Rephrasing[edit]

Powers and abilities section makes it sound like Wolverine is the most durable Marvel character.What?It is already mentioned that she (with an ally) defeated Galactus & The Silver Surfer so.. 213.65.141.58 (talk) 21:32, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
