Re: Rawhide Kid - the Sensational Seven

I still want someone to explain how Two-Gun (Matt) could be present at the Battle of the Alamo, and how both the Matt and Clay Two-Guns could have so many identical adventures. Less flippantly: Matt's a time-traveller, so his presence at the Alamo (what comic claimed or showed that?) could be down ...

Re: Patsy Walker 122-124

The Avengers Index backs this up by explicitly citing those issues of Patsy Walker as prior appearances of the characters. I personally feel that most issues of Patsy Walker (and related or similar titles) can be treated like Golden Age comics - semi-accurate (to varying degrees) accounts of actual...

Re: Rawhide Kid - the Sensational Seven

In Avengers 141-143, Thor, Moondragon, and Hawkeye, with the aid of the Rawhide Kid, the Two-Gun Kid, Kid Colt, the Night Rider, and the Ringo Kid, tackle Kang in Tombstone, Arizona in 1873. Since Tombstone wasn't founded until 1879 in our world, this era of history must be vastly different in E-61...

Re: Rise of the Black Panther #1

My take would be that the T isn't silent, but that the way it is pronounced with a Wakandan accent means most non-Wakandans pronounce it incorrectly, and it's easier to ask them to just not pronounce it than get them to try and say it correctly. I've seen plenty of examples of this in real life, wh...

Re: Rise of the Black Panther #1

So it's possible the Wakandans themselves are heavy on the CH sound and pronounce it TCH without realizing it, and to a western ear, that sounds like the T is pronounced. So even when T'Challa is saying "Challa, no T, Kevin", Kevin is still hearing it as TCHalla. Hence his asking, "Ta-Challa?" That...

Re: Rise of the Black Panther #1

Because earlier that issue, Kevin had heard Monica Lynne use T'Challa's name, and i guess she must have pronounced the T'.. Okay, even with that: 1) T'Challa literally just said the name to him. 2) If anyone outside of Wakanda would pronounce it correctly, Monica would. My take would be that the T ...

Re: and then… CONAN

Thanks. Loki. Didn't know about that one! "Those two" - separate stories. The first is from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series 2, in which Gullivar and Carter join forces to drive a hostile Martian species off Mars, unintentionally triggering H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds. The second is a com...

It's things like this that keep my hope alive for that John Carter/Gullivar Jones one-shot I just know is coming! :yepp: Already happened, just not at Marvel. https://beforeamazing.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/tumblr_m0697bc9lt1qc8b0ao1_1280.jpg https://booksnfilm.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/erb-com...

Re: Who's read it all?

The rule I've made, for my purposes, is that if the 616 Peter Parker could reasonably appear in a story (whether or not he does), then it counts, and otherwise it's optional. So Conan no, :twisted: I'll remind you that Peter has met Red Sonja in the present and time-travelled back to meet Kull, so ...

Now Frank is Gulf War veteran, right?
Frank fought in the last notable conflict the U.S. was in. Whichever one that might be at any given time. Or, if there's ever a long enough real world peace, Frank fought in Sin Cong / A.N. Other generic South East Asian conflict.
