Lampshading The Hanging Plotlines Of Cancelling Invaders (SPOILERS)

Today sees the publication of the final issue of All-New Invaders, written by James Robinson. It's not an easy wrap up, there are plenty of storylines set up during the comics' brief run, that started with an Inhumanity crossover and kept that plotline going through… and plenty of others beside. There was no way to finish them all up neatly with a bow. But rather than ignore this, the comic decided to lampshade the problem. Which is, to draw attention to the problem by spotlighting it, underlining it, sticking a lampshade on its head. And so we get this scene.

Which also beg an answer. And since we see James Robinson working on a number of upcoming Marvel projects, maybe we'll get a chance to see them play out in other comics?

Or ignored forever.

I wonder if Secret Wars may provide an opportunity to explore these further… especially that alternate Martian invasion dimension…?
