      Sasquatch, hey?
      This one might be worth picking up, then. I also like that it's one of the stories from this alternate-reality amalgamation that actually deals with an alternate reality.

      (Mik reads the issue...)

      Wow! Awesome!
      Sasquatch should NOT be able to do that.

      Though three things keep bothering me:
      Why's Sasquatch on the mutants' side?
      What's Gladiator doing on earth?

      And why did I pack helium instead of oxygen?

      I don't see why Sasquatch couldn't do that, but no clue why he is on the Red Guard. Not sure if this universe made him a mutant or not, as everyone else in Magneto's army is a direct mutant

      No clue why Gladiator is on earth, he wasn't in the original HOM run.

      Cannonball took out Gladiator in UXM, so I can't see why Sas couldn't, strength-wise, if Gladiator wasn't prepared & Sas had the element of surprise.

      He was with the Red Guard in the original mini-series so it makes sense for him to be in it here.
      The point of HoM was that people got their greatest wishes fulfilled so maybe Walt's was to be a mutant? Possibly to be closer to JM?

      Yeah he fought cage in the main House of M series, still doesn't make much sense why he is on the Red Guard...but hey beggars can't be choosers

      we got a respectful Sasquatch appearance even though it's an alternate reality. Still win win

      I think of Gladiator as Superman-level strength. Because he's basically, y'know, Superman.
      I'd imagine he way outclasses Sasquatch - but, hey, cool if he doesn't.

      Sasquatch strength is from an elder God born of sorcery as black as night. He powered up the wrecking crew to be planet busters afterall. He's strong enough, but again just an alternate reality

      I hadn't thought about it that way.

      Maybe they will set namor and Sasquatch to clash in the conclusion hence why they hyped him beating gladiator. But doubt it haha

      Sasquatch may appear again in the very last issue for the big battle but doubt we will see much more of him. How many issues is this book going to? 5?

      I thought the Secret Warses were all 4 issues, but I don't know what that's based on. Howard the Human was only a one-shot.

      Some are 5 (AoA for example).

      HoM is only 4 though.

      Okay. Because of something you said, I'm considering picking up AoA.
