Who’s Up and Who’s Thwarted

Diablo: In Ultimate FF #40, the Fantastic Four go back in time to thwart Diablo’s plot to grant himself immortal life. To get immortal life he must release a deadly energy that could destroy a world, but the big problem is that Diablo will have the energy destroy the future world where the FF come from.

As Orion101 points out on CBR, Am I the only one who sees the flaw in Diablo’s plan? He’s doing this so he can live forever, but the process will release energy that would destroy the world. So he sets it up then the world in the future is destroyed. The thing is, if he’s immortal he’ll be there when it happens. Either way he’s screwed himself. This villain sees incredibly short sighted.

Next time check with Kang. He breathes this stuff.
