Re: [April Fool] MARVEL AT RISK TO LOSE WOLVERINE RIGHTS

It would have sounded a bit more plausible had you indicated that MVL and Fox had a dispute regarding the film rights of Wolverine. After all, the Chicago Herald-Tribune currently has a court case with Warren Beatty over the film rights to Dick Tracy, and the Salkinds ended up in a contentious relat...

Belasco notes

BELASCO
*WI 35/2 (cf. FF 314)
XCAL -1

KZ3 12
UX 160

FF I#314 has Belasco reveal that he served as one of the sorcerers to banish the Cat People. The first telling of that tale occurred in What If volume I #35, in an Untold Tales of the Marvel Universe back-up taking place on Earth-616.

Mexico had some original Nick Fury tales.

Star Wars Weekly doctored the Watcher into some pre-FF#1 reprints as a narrator.

Hugh Jackman now ties with Christopher Reeve, as both played

Hugh Jackman now ties with Christopher Reeve, as both played a comic book hero in four consecutive films over nine years. Come to think of it, James Franco and Ian McKellan now tie with Gene Hackman, as all have played comic book foes in three films. However, I should note that Hackman filmed all of...

Re: Gravestone Dates for MU Characters

As I recall, Adam Warlock's tombstone later appeared in MTIO when Her tried to resurrect him. Did Mar-Vell's tombstone appear during Operation: Galactic Storm? Danny Rand's tombstone appeared in PM & If#125, though of course, a plant got buried instead. Did Uncle Ben's tombstone appear in ASM I#180 ...

Re: Moon Knight and Werewolf in MK#20 (09/08)...fb to "1994"?

Very well then, if and when this issue of Moon Knight undergoes chronological analysis. Incidentally, I could probably go checking back issues of an old collectibles store newsletter from 1993 or so to show that Moon Knight#60 (where he dies) came out in late 1993. Moon Knight did not return to life...

Re: Was Baron Strucker in X-Men Alpha Flight an LMD?

I meant to posit that for someone who knew about Arnim Zola's process of transferring one's mind into a back-up clone body in case of death (as Fury#1 shows that Baron Strucker did since the 1940's), that person appearing during a period when thought dead by the authorities does not present much of ...

Re: Was Baron Strucker in X-Men Alpha Flight an LMD?

Fury#1 indicates that Strucker knew about Zola's mind transference to back-up clone process in the 1940's. (Of course, the Fear Itself GN did the same for Baron Zemo, establishing from the testimony of an Axis soldier, as reported by Silver Sable, that Der Fuehrer informed Zemo of Zola's process ; b...
