Re: Iron Man Legacy #6-11

IRON MAN LEGACY #6 NOTE: Lilandra was off in space with the Starjammers at the time this story is set, and yet Xavier says he left her in bed to attend this Illuminati meeting. He could have been visiting her. Or vice versa. In "New Mutants" #19, the Starjammers discover that Warlock and Magus are ...

Re: Spider-Man Team-Up #3

Thing uses a gizmo that emits a concentrated blast of cosmic rays to turn himself human and then back into the Thing. Has this ever been seen before or since? Ben Grimm uses a device for such transformations in Fantastic Four #405-406 (October-November, 1995), #410 (March, 1996), and #412 (May, 199...

Re: Black Widow: Deadly Origin #1-4

Col_Fury wrote:1957: Josef Stalin introduces Natasha to Alexi Shoshtakov, but she’s having trouble keeping her memories and cover stories straight (page 4, page 7).
Is this a typo? Stalin died in 1953. From 1953 to 1964, the First Secretary was Nikita Khrushchev.

Re: Possible placement issue with PWJ2 1 and W:O 11-15

Can you boil that down to the important parts? It's an awful lot of dry information without any clear conclusions that I can see. -Jeph! *Issue #1. **Wolverine in Washington D.C.

Re: Greek Gods myths and marvel contradictions.

So how do we explain Tartarus, Erebus, Eros and Nyx? Their being on the same line as Gaea indicates that they too must be elder gods, but we have just seen looking at the elder god’s history that this can’t be true!? 1) "Tartarus originated from Chaos. He is the lowest abyss beneath the earth where...

Re: Emma Frost's chronology

Panels 1-2 are from UX 131. I think the third one, showing Emma rebuilding herself, is new material. Her chronology shows her next in XFOR 87 : what was that about ? According to a summary of the issue, in a flashback set "five years" before the current events, Emma tries to recruit Christopher Aar...

Re: X-Men: First Class Finals #2

(on tv) Captain America, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor, and Wasp (as the Avengers). Notes: Can someone tell me when this might fit for the Avengers? It’s sometime after UX 32 (roughly post-Avengers 40?). This seems like an odd line-up. It’s possible other members are just off camera? It’s strange t...

Re: X-MEN VS. HULK #1

Yes, I did mean the early Hulk 280's. Hulk's based in New York, and I believe it was printed at roughly the same time as the gap. So, this works for the X-Men, now to work on Hulk. I know around that time Banner becomes the dominate personality and I still contend Wolverine had to be dealing with a...

Re: X-MEN VS. HULK #1

Looking at the chronologies for the X-Men. I'm thinking this should go between M/GN 5 and X&AF2 1 both of which come between UX 168 and UX 169. I understand this may not be the most ideal solution, but I can't see any other way around it. Storm's tranformation was a key element around that period o...

Re: X-MEN VS. HULK #1

If so, my calendar notes would place the X-Men in XVH 1 between UX 181 and 183, which works. Those issues are the immediate aftermath of the first Secret War for the X-Men. Where does the team meet the Hulk? In #181 (May, 1984), Colossus, Lockheed, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Rogue, Storm and Wolver...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

I'm not sure the Sentinels fit 100%. Shaw first proposed Sentinels to Kelly in Uncanny X-Men#135, although I suppose you could say these were prototypes Shaw planned to show Kelly. The Sentinel production of Project: Armageddon was already funded by the Hellfire Club and Shaw. This Project and its ...

Archangel still has metallic wings but is wearing the blue & white costume which sounds like... sometime around the Onslaught era? The following is a costume gallery of Archangel.
