Re: Hulk Season One

I'm pretty sure even Fred Van Lente would say not to add this to the MCP. Van Lente: I think the idea was at some point they were going to serialize them digitally, I think they changed their minds about that. Also originally they were supposed to be in-between continuity, and then at some point, th...

Re: Who is N'Gabthoth?

I see what you're implying here. You think that Shuma-Gorath has somehow gained access to the Project and inserting bogus listings about his minions to sow discord and chaos on this plane. That guy is soooo evil!

Re: GSA2 1/2

Upon a quick reading, the only bit I find problematic is someone off-panel (Cap?) calling Iron Man "Tony". At the time of A 185-211 (I narrowed it a bit since Vizh and Wanda left after that) it wasn't generally known, even among his teammates, that Tony was Shellhead. Still I wouldn't think one thro...

Re: Eddie Dyson

Okay, of the issues you list, the earliest Payback is called "Eddie" in PWJ 75, page 34 when Lynn comes to his door and says, "Let me in, Eddie" The first time I'm seeing the full name is PWJ 77 page 16, Eddie is bemoaning his crummy life and wishes there was "Just somebody who remembers old Eddie D...

Re: MAJOR disasters, invasions, and battles on Marvel Earth

When you mentioned big attacks that are never referenced again, the first thing I thought of was Kang vaporizing the entire population of Washington DC at the tail end of Busiek's AVENGERS. Then he took over the world and rounded up heroes into internment camps, not that you would know it from any o...

Re: Birdwatchers! Help me identify birds!

I realize this falls under the category of "well who asked ya?", but this is so not the kind of information I'm looking for in the index series. I'd be so much more into lengthier "Notes" sections with behind-the-scenes and continuity info, and maybe larger reproduction of covers, over listings of w...

Re: Thor: Godstorm placement

Isn't it within the realm of impossibility that it wasn't in the script, and Steve Rude just felt like drawing them in? And Brevoort just thought it was cute, so he left it there? I don't have the issue open in front of me, any chance we can squint and pretend that "Gwen" is Liz Allan with her hair ...

Re: Hail Hydra 2

Is this supposed to be canon? So far I haven't seen anything that would knock it out of continuity. Leoparis might be on the right track with placement. The Fury FB's in question are implied to be taking place around the same time as the FF fighting Hate Monger in FF 21. Since that has a Dec 63 cov...

Re: Captain America Hail Hydra

Guys, I just read the issue and although it is clearly an early encounter between Cap and Bucky and Hydra, I don't see anything in the story that requires it to be the very first time . In fact, although Geist brags about his bitchin new secret organization, he doesn't mention Hydra by name in the p...

Re: Nick Fury in BW:CW and AGENTGN?

About the AGENTGN, how much time passes between Nick meeting Mason and Mason leaving for Costa Brava? Because Mason leaving for Costa Brava has to take place just before AF 79, since the Tinkerer was seeing Mason off just before he appears in AF 79. I'm totally missing why this is important, but Ma...

Re: Nick Fury in BW:CW and AGENTGN?

First of all, Fury does indeed appear at the end of the the main story, sorry about that. So he needs another full appearence, not behind the scenes. I decided to look more into where the BW:CW is placed in various other characters' chronologies. The inevitable conclusion is whoever analyzed this gn...

Re: Nick Fury in BW:CW and AGENTGN?

I looked through these two gn's for ya. I didn't read them word for word, but I focussed on the Fury/SHIELD mentions and here's what I've gleaned. First of all, in the Coldest War GN there is a three year gap between the main story and the two page epilogue. Since it is only listed once in Widow's a...
