It's a very fair question and there's nothing in Phase 4 that you haven't yet read that challenges it, so:

1) Maybe you're right and the Llogior didn't all agree so this was the best way to distract both sides, or
2) No evidence but those 'click and bang' device - maybe the Llogior didn't have any but the heroes did so had to be tricked in to using them, or
3) Grant Morrison loves pulling the carpet from under his heroes even if logically it doesn't made complete sense.

Zenith is a great ride. Phase 4 seemed like such a long wait and the prog was in pretty ropey shape by then that it actually wasn't very well received at the time. Now it feels very cohesive and by the time the black sun re-appears very well-planned. Again that's Grant at his best - when you think he's PT Barnum, he actually delivers the goods and more.

Glad I’m not the only one who didn’t quite understand that....2) would be the perfect explanation if David hadn’t said the bombs were provided by Maximan. Also, the human cultists built one on Zenith’s world, apparently under the direction of the Lloigor.

So I’ll go with 1) or 3). But then, Maximan is bonkers, so maybe we shouldn’t expect the plan to make perfect sense!

The Lloiger, like many eldritchian abominations, seem almost so obsessed with how clever they are that they get cocky enough to try and put all their eggs in once basket.

Destroy the Alignment AND all super powered beings in the multiverse in ine go? WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!
