    Ummm... Hickman's writing him???

    Personally, I would preferred the Sentry but to each his own...
    All stories are imaginary, so you get to decide what's important and what isn't. Continuity is fluid.

    QFT!!! Hickman openly stated in the question session that for a while he didn't know who BM was till recently being asked and he said he "like the character design." I want the character to be used, but in the right context.

    A superman parody more often, I've gathered, although I have only read the one Blue Marvel punched around, myself. That one was kind of a ridiculous riff on, say, Crime Syndicate superman or something.

    I would be cool if he were unique and different, because unique and different is always good.

    I would also be cool if he were very deliberately supermanesque, because Jonathan Hickman writing Superman would be a super fun proposition.

    Could go either way.
    You can see in promos - especially the preview of issue 4 - that he's more aesthetically Supermanesque than some other Hyperions, or superman clones generally.
    Someone also pointed out that his origin - from a dying universe - might be deliberately evocative of superman's origin - from a dying planet. Except infinitely more traumatic, as it happens when he's an adult.

    Snap inclination is, he'll start out as basically superman in everything that matters, then diverge through all of this crap that supes has never had to deal with, then we'll do something with seeing just how long that innate heroic spirit of a superman can persist when taken away from his home. Which works well as an exploration considering how intimately tied Superman has been to Earth.

    just a guess

    Man, the self-righteous whining and bitching would have been ear-bleeding.

    Why the assumption of only negative outcomes for Hyperion(/Blue Marvel)?

    Sentry was good as a ticking time bomb, nothing else. The way he was shoe-horned into being Marvel's greatest hero ever was just disgusting and outside of his craziness, he was the most boring person ever.

    In theory... since there are an infinite number of alternate realities (which is where all but the 616 ones come from)

    Because he wanted to use Hyperion, and is under no obligation to use some character that pretty much nobody has ever heard of.

    There's still the hyperion from squadron sinister running around , last seen in thunderbolts (i think). Not sure why they needed to bring back "King Hyperion" from exiles only to make him such a wuss. King Hyperion was arguably one of the most powerful version of hyperion around - killed Holocaust who were stranded in 616 from AOA , destroyed his world , killed dozens of heroes from other worlds and his headling factor is ridiculous.
