re: #109 SidewaysQuark

Can you explain why, in the Marvel Universe, it wouldn’t be just as likely a twist that said Jinn wouldn’t just turn out to be sophisticated bio-engineered robots built by aliens from another dimension?

No, you’re not understanding what I’m asking. Jinn are, in Muslim tradition, not-very-well defined supernatural entities that exist on the supernatural plane but can physically manifest. As such, they could explain every single other supernatural entity, including mutants.

If you’re asking ‘why couldn’t there be a plot twist where it turns out Thor is a robot’, there could be. There could also be a plot twist where it turns out the whole universe is powered by the magical screams of a tortured pheonix.

You continue to treat the Marvel universe as though it is real. It is not. It is a narrative universe. Do you understand this?
