Hela (JiM #645 spoilers)

Post by Somebody » Sat Nov 17, 2012 10:11 pm

Held off on this for a couple of weeks to avoid accidentally spoiling anyone.

Okay, so Leah II is Hela, sent back into the past by present-day Hela to complete the loop.

Leah II was created ("written") in imitation of Leah I by Kid Loki, and was subsequently rewritten to be a better approximation.

But Leah I was a piece of Hela severed off like a Madrox dupe - in a literal sense, she was Hela's severed hand, but that's not particularly relevant. In practice, she was Hela's childhood persona temporarily reincarnated into a new form.

So here's the question - is Leah I the future version of Leah II for chronological purposes?

I've read this run and greatly enjoyed it but reading it in monthly instalments along hundreds of other comics makes it difficult to remember the particulars.

Here's my take: Leah I isn't the future version nor past version. She's like Infinity or the discarded eye for Odin, a new character for practical purposes, just like a clone would be.
