Re: Text Stories in Marvel Mystery Comics #21-24

Edit: Oh, and another problem is that the Torch first meets Toro in Human Torch #2, but that was published Fal...

Re: Text Stories in Marvel Mystery Comics #21-24

The problem isn't so much Torch and Toro working together, but Namor and the Torch. It's Namor who comments about working with the Torch "again," seemingly requiring this to take place after M/MC 17.

Re: Text Stories in Marvel Mystery Comics #21-24

So maybe the way to go is to posit that in 616 there was a second major battle at Dunkirk sometime later in 1941 that never happened here on our Earth?

Re: Non-Marvel properties in Earth-616

Yep. It's unclear if this means that Marvel's Hellraiser comics are 616 or not, though. The Mystic Arcana reference refers back to the Marvel Comics Presents story as the first appearance, not to an issue of Hellraiser (which were published before the Marvel Comics Presents story).
