That was just part of Bill working out who the Doctor was. She mentions to The Doctor that she doesn’t have any photos of her mother, the Doctor travels back in time, takes photos, plants them in Bill’s house intending that Bill would find them and think they had been there all along, but ‘accidentally’ catches…
He didn’t get her anything for Christmas, so he went back in time and took pictures of her mom, and then returned to the present and hid the pictures where they would be found. I suspect that’s the last we’ll hear about it.

This series should not work. No overarching plot out of the gate yet (vault?). No mystery about the companion, or prophecy, either. So far it just seems very S.T.O.W to me. It should make me indifferent to it.
Cosmic Cubes have created people before, IIRC.
Dramatic irony still packs a punch if done right. Good to hear that it has that going for it.
Between that, the Tony Stark thing, and the idea of having to read three other books from three other series just as a precursor to all of this makes the whole thing practically impenetrable even to people who’ve been actively following the storyline for the last year.
Also the woman who brought him into Hydra as a child has been shown as being real! That’s the thing that’s really been confusing. I’m still not sure about that. And I can’t tell if Zemo was changed or he’s just rolling with it. Not good for someone who’s been along for the entire ride.
Is Nitro always going to show up to fuck over decent superhero teams for some cheap plot point in a line wide event?
Not reading this. Or any marvel. Ever again. I’m done with the shows and movies, and I’m done with the swag. I’m done. I have better things to do with my time and money. Fuck Nick Spencer, and Fuck Marvel.
Phyla Vell had a great run as Quasar. She died eventually too, but she lasted awhile, kicked some major ass, and we got some great stories out of her. Frankly, I wish she had been rezzed here instead of some rando getting the bands.
Welcome to Marvel Comic’s New York. Where 9/11 happens every other week. I remember Magneto tossed the city one week, and then Ultron tossed it the next week, and then the week after Spidey was swinging as if nothing ever happened. The constant destruction, and/or invasion, of Marvel Comic’s New York City is only…
This is the tenth crossover event since Secret Wars. It is one of six planned for this year. And on top of that, to even understand the main book, I need to have been following multiple other books and now pick up three additional comics to read the event issue numbered 0.
Yeah, this. It seems like Quasar is the Barry Horowitz of Marvel Cosmic.
Marvel also wanted you to buy three additional different comic issues to flesh out all aspects of Secret Empire #0.
Has there been another cosmic “protector of the universe” type that has been immediately ineffective to the point they’ve died every time a threat comes up the way that anyone with the Quasar bands have been? It’s obnoxious.
Nitro blows up (Civil War I) and Quasar gets killed (Annihilation). Man, they can’t even be creative when it comes to their event deaths anymore.
Honestly aside from updates here, I haven’t dove in, because it just doesn’t look interesting in the least. So I’m passing judgement quite unfairly.
Marvel’s next big event should simply be a year without big events.
I get that this might be a good story, potentially even a really good one. But I find the whole idea of the thing so actively unpleasant - especially now - that I’m just not going to read it. It’s not a major problem for me - I wasn’t reading at least most of the books it’s happening in, and I generally skip…
I kept holding out hope that the BBC would take the Adventures cast and go reshoot all the old missing episodes. I would never happen, but how cool would it be to get a new Marco Polo or The Myth Makers?
