About the Ending [obvious spoilers]

Okay, so Darksiders II is set entirely in the years between the Apocalypse & the events of the original Darksiders, right?

When Death reaches the Well of Souls he chooses to restore humanity, thus 'undoing' War's supposed crime.

And yet, in Darksiders, you don't see a single living human (ie not a Wicked or Undead) nor do you even hear mention of a revival...so what happened to humanity? Did Death screw up? And yet in the post-credits cutscene the Dark Prince (assuming it's him, although 'my prince' could just be Lilith's pet name for whoever her master was) says that "Death has returned Man to the Balance", so it would seem that no mistake was made in that respect.

In fact, looking at the whole 'resurrecting humanity' thing, the idea hardly makes any sense. The Third Realm is now inhabited by the forces of Hell, the Hellguard & the Wicked (& at the time of Death's actions the Destroyer & his Chosen too) & Earth is generally far too ruined for simply bringing back mankind to 'undo' the entire goddamn Apocalypse.

So yeah, any ideas about all this?The Darksiders wiki hasn't been of much help.Even a bit of wild speculation would be nice to see (though don't go making out that it's canon ;) ).

I just kind of figured that Death's escapades were going on at the exact same time as War's. I believe that humanity was restored just about when War was busy battling the Destroyer.

Pik,is right. Deaths adventure is during the hundred years from the start of the first game. Death resurected humanity around the time War started fighting Destroyer. I doub't the humanity would simply be ported to the Earth into their bodies. The horsemen will probably have to clean up the earth first thought,kick the Council asses and to set up War on a date with Uriel.
