Re: X-Men: Grand Design v1 #1

The problem isn't that it doesn't mention anything after 1991- that in and of itself isn't enough to strike a series from canon- but that it's a resequencing of events- for example, Xavier doesn't meet Moira until after he loses the use of his legs.

Flashbacks in X-Men: Grand Design #1

Note that some of the flashbacks are inconsistent with 616 continuity- for example, Scott, Warren, Bobby and Hank are depicted as meeting Jean during the fight with the Conquistador.

Re: Doctor Strange appearance in Incredible Hulk 207 references his appearance in Dr Strange 19

One thing- WCA2 20 takes place while Strange is still in the eighteenth century after the story in Doctor Strange 17-19, so it has to take place immediately after those issues.

Re: Generations: The Archers-Hawkeye/Hawkeye v1 #1

But present Steve doesn't remember past Steve talking to Sam in the Captain America Generations. I guess Kobik sent Kate to the past and Sam to an alternate reality?

Re: Luke Cage, Power Man #31 & Power Man Annual 1 (1976)

BTW, while we're on the subject of Omega, could someone please explain to me why Nitro's appearance in OU 8 is placed after CM 54, when CM 54 explicitly takes place after OU 8?

Re: Iron Man's appearance in Werewolf By Night 42-43

In Avengers 152, Iron Man states that he recently fought beside the Werewolf, with an editorial note stating that was in issue 42 of WBN. At the moment, the Iron Man chronology has the order like this, as per the Iron Man Official Index to the Marvel Universe, but i would submit this is an error, a...

Re: the 'NAM!

The 'Nam! series is weird, though, because in the early issues the characters talk about superheroes as if they're fictional. The real explanation is that Marvel changed its mind halfway through about whether or not it's happening in 616.

Re: Generations: The Americas-Sam Wilson: Captain America/Steve Rogers: Captain America v1 #1

Note that the dialogue implies that this is not the past of 616, since there's no evidence of Sam in the history books.

Are we sure those are Neanderthals? Neanderthals only appeared about 350,000 years ago.

Quicksilver in XF 104

In XF 104, Quicksilver makes an appearance that isn't in his chronology. He mentions being unavailable because of an emergency and the footnote refers to A 375, so this should probably take place between A 374 and A 375.

Re: What If…? #7, 19, 23 & v2 #42; SI:I♥NYC /4

About What If 23- the weird thing is that the story establishes that the Crypto-Man's creator was a worshipper of the Dark Gods and the boy Jarella died saving was an illusion. It's not clear if this was the case in 616.
