Re: the TWELVE 8

Once you add in extraterrestrials (to say nothing of extradimensionals) operating outside of Earth, it starts escalating as to who counts.

Re: Overhauling GSX & CX

Regarding some of Beast's appearances, George Olshevsky theorizes that the Marvel Feature and Thor/Amazing Adventures stories all had to take place in the same year in his Official Marvel Index to the X-Men#4 (November, 1987). This refers to the Rutland, Vermont parade stories hosted by the recently...

Re: AGE OF THE SENTRY #2 (w/ Carol Danvers and Silver Age)

"Daredevil is "that new guy" and wears his yellow and red costume, so between Daredevil #1 (1964) and #6 (1965), Daredevil also has the single 'D' on his chest (as in earlier issues) rather than the 'DD'. The reference to "First issue out now! Guest-starring Spider-Man!" is probably an error" Spider...

Re: Thor: The Truth of History

I use the term "native temporal inhabitant" or "native temporal counterpart" for stories involving characters traveling in to the past and encountering or near-encountering their past counterparts. Example, Tomb of Dracula I#5 (Dracula time-travels to a point in history where he got staked by Van He...

Re: Thor: The Truth of History

"Native temporal inhabitant" refers to someone who inhabits a period of time without the agency of time travel. The word "temporal" refers to time. So somebody who has not time traveled to a period of time serves as a native temporal inhabitant. Somebody who inhabits a period of time through time tr...

Re: HULK MONSTER-SIZE SPECIAL #1

"Anyone familiar enough with Hulk to place him in Europe? I am aware of H 136, 144-146, but these stories were all published in 1971 before the Monster was found frozen in FMON 12." The Hardcover Handbook seems to state that FM's 1970's published adventure took place in the absolute 1970's, not the ...

Re: Thor: The Truth of History

If the Asgardians appear here as native temporal inhabitants, this may serve as their earliest recorded interaction with Earth. Seth has, as I recall, in Thor I#240-241 and circa Thor I#400, as well as perhaps Osiris in Thor I#301, asserted a great age for the Heliopolitan pantheon that places them ...

"Also note the poster on the wall with the cover of TOS 15.

Re: the TWELVE 8

The poster asked for "the first costumed superhero of the 20th century". Most of the responses to this question included characters who had metahuman abilities but not costumes (such as Ulysses Bloodstone) or a costume but no metahuman powers (e.g. the World War One Union Jack). Did the original pos...

Re: the TWELVE 8

The flashback for Black Widow's origin occurs in 1928 according to her sister's gravestone (1910-1928). I believe this may actually make Black Widow the first costumed superhero of the 20th century. Anyone know any earlier ones? Good question. One fb seemed to indicate that Sun Girl acted as an adv...

1/ Brunnhilde the Valkyrie, who was in suspended animation for centuries until released in Defenders #109, but she appeared in Asgard during the 1960s in Marvel: The Lost Generation #5. The Enchantress obviously melded someone with Brunnhilde, as the Official Handbook noted that she had done over th...
