James Bond

James Bond is confirmed as a 616 character. He doesn't have an MCP chronology despite a couple Marvel appearances, so I thought I'd put one together for him. I'm not sure if Marvel's adaptations of For Your Eyes Only and Octopussy should be considered 616. I'm not aware of any references to those st...

Re: Mystic Comics #1-4

I've wondered about that, too. Leaving them out of the numbering is misleading, especially when many of them feature 616 appearances of characters like Cap, Namor, etc.

Re: Red Raven Comics #1

Magar the Mystic has an Egyptian background of some kind, and hasn’t been active on Earth for a long time. I see the MCP already has King Solomon listed for this story, and I’m seeing mention of Thomas Edison appearing here also. And a scan shows me that Napoleon also appears. Magar the Mystic is “...

Re: Daring Mystery Comics #5-8

I'm loving all these golden age stories being added! :D Trojak and Tigerman are distinct characters. They both have their own handbook entries. I assume the "Balu" reference was just an error. No chronology for Stuporman? He actually has three other appearances I'm aware of: Snap vol. 1 #2, Snap vol...

I don’t understand why Columbus wasn’t listed when Indestructible Hulk #14 was added to MCP. I’ve rectified that below.

I already included the first three issues in my breakdown of Earth-7642: http://www.chronologyproject.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=12376. The fourth issue is set in an alternate future, and so should be assigned its own Earth number. Further, there's actually yet another Earth that appears at the ...

5th Story:
Norman Daniels & Fred Guardineer

NOTE:
This story is a reprint (and part of a serial). The original seen in Funny Pages v2 #2 (Ultem Publications, 1937) and later Amazing Mystery Funnies v2 #5 (Centaur Group, 1939).
So? The handbooks make clear Dave Dean is a 616 character.
