Re: NA 28-30 flashback

I can't see any objection to putting Iron Man (and the rest of the MAv)'s visit to Rand Corp after FS#4. Hawkeye's interaction in FS#3 is independent of the NAv. Logan's meeting with IM doesn't have anything to do with the Danny Rand meet, except .... Maybe Stark was putting off approaching Rand unt...

Re: Original Sin chronology

I haven't seen anything to shed more light on the Hulk problem. Personally I'm waiting for Time Runs Out to finish before picking over the debris to sort out what is actually true in the main timeline. But Avengers World is going to explain some of what happened in the missing 8 months, so maybe the...

Black Widow in Silent War

After my complicated New Avengers and Dr Doom suggestions, here's a simple little correction from the same neck of the woods. I was looking up what the Mighty Avengers did between MA 11 and World War Hulk. Everything seemed to mesh together except for Black Widow's list:- MA 11 CA5 27 SILWAR 5 NW4 2...

Re: Dr Doom in prison

Col Fury, The 1st thread you pointed to is all about what happens to Doom after the time I'm worried about. But the 2nd thread of course does exactly what it says on the tin. I should have searched before I spoke and found it. Then I might have just appended a simpler added suggestion. I like the Do...

Dr Doom in prison

Here's another conundrum for you in the pre-Secret Invasion era. This one concerns Dr Doom's time in prison after Mighty Avengers #11. By the way it's not a coincidence that I'm coming up with problems in the same neck of the woods. I've been investigating this area (specifically the time between Ci...

Re: NA 28-30 flashback

Clarification:- OK, here goes. Daredevil v2 #93 p1-3 Matt Murdock returns from Europe. Captain America v5 #25 Cap is assassinated. Civil War: Initiative fb p23-30.2 Ms Marvel meets Spider-Woman and tells her that Cap is alive in hospital in the Raft prison. Civil War: Initiative p31-34 Jarvis persua...

Re: Original Sin chronology

Thor has had Jarnbjorn since the end of the Ragnarok/Planet X storyline in Uncanny Avengers #22. After he retrieved it from the Apocalypse Twins who stole it from Kang who had it for ages. That story arc occurs before Axis and indeed before Cap gets old. But where it fits vis-a-vis Original Sin I do...

Re: Original Sin chronology

New Avenger #27 also has something to say about Thor and Axis. In the future setting Dr Strange is surprised to see Thor with a prosthetic arm. DS has apparently been off in Nothing Space with the Black Priests for most of the 8 month gap. But we know he was in Axis with Thor. This suggests that Tho...

NA 28-30 flashback

My memory insists that somewhere you asked for suggestions for changes to pre-Secret Invasion chronology because you wanted to tidy it all up. But now I can't find the reference. But here, whether you want it or not, is a suggestion about the flashbacks in New Avengers #28-30 and their relation to N...

Re: Original Sin chronology

Oops! I realise I've just restated the contents of milamber's last 2 posts. I misread his 1st 1 and thought they both referred to *Avengers* #27. (It's those coincidental issue numbers.) But it also means I was crediting him with a brilliant deduction/no-prize suggestion based on Av#27 alone.

Re: Original Sin chronology

Coincidentally in New Avengers #27 the 8-month-future Thor discards Jarnbjorn and pulls a hammer from a sheath on his back. It's the hammer of Thorr, the alternate, which once again clearly says it can be wielded by whoever is unworthy.

Re: Original Sin chronology

Paul, I have another large problem trying to reconcile stuff around Original Sin which I can't see mentioned anywhere. But before I get to it I'll just add 1 bit to the Thor discussion. In Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1-3 Thor does appear bare-chested with Jarnbjorn. But if he's got a prosthetic arm it's...

The Road to Civil War

This is a very old topic, but .... I'm confused about the connection between ASM#529-531 and FF#536-537 with NA:I1 #1. NA:I1 #1 covers 3 meetings of the Illuminati. All the discussion in the Forum has ASM#529-531 and FF#536-537 around the 3rd meeting. But the chronologies of Iron Man and Mr Fantasti...

Re: Absolute dating of Timely comics

I agree with you about considering the internal evidence from the stories. That is how I came up with my absolute dating proposal, by finding references to current events in some issues. (I didn't include the evidence in the start of this thread. It exists in the thread on Who Watches The Watchers.)...

Absolute dating of Timely comics

In the thread 'Sequencing monthly and quarterly Timely issues', both here and in Who Watches The Watchers forum, I used adverts in Golden Age Masterworks reprints quoting publication dates of Timely comics, plus the more usual 'on sale now' ads, to support the 3 month backdating of real publication ...
