Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

Okay, Dr Strange sighting in Last Defenders #3. Key points: 1) He's back in Greenwich Village "temporarily" because of a stampede of Nightmare's giant horses, which he seems to see as a dare aimed at him. He's not living there, and he says he shouldn't be there at all. 2) He's in absolutely no shape...

Re: Justice or J2?

How about "J2" for J2? In most cases, it makes some measure of sense to spell out things that could cause confusion: "FOUR" for 4, etc. However, in this case, we've CREATED confusion: there's a book called J2, and an abbreviation "J2", and even though they're letter-for-letter the same thing, they ...

Re: Avengers/Invaders 1

Comicboards images are anti-hotlinked - unless you've (a) got it in your cache or (b) have your PC set up to hide what site you came from, the image "shouldn't" show up if you click on it. Copy & paste the link instead.

Re: May call for analyses

Thor: Ages of Thunder - Reign of Blood Thor: Ages of Thunder 1 is out, but it's to be continued in Thor: Reign of Blood in June. Also, I could have sworn this was set to be a series of three one-shots. Anyway, I'm not sure if it can be properly analyzed until all of them are out. If it helps, part ...

Swordsman II/Cotati

I noted in my Avengers: Celestial Quest #3 analysis that The Cotati Swordsman is treated as if the Crossing never happened. I don't have Avengers Forever to hand to check, but I suspect he was retconned into a Space Phantom there, which - if anyone can verify that - should move A 392 & A 395 out of ...

That's an argument that the Thor listing should be at "Odinson, Thor" without so much as a mention under "T", isn't it?

Re: New Marvels on May 14

Quite possibly - the list is always provisional until the Monday of the week of release (Tuesday on a week where the US get their comics on Thursday).

Are you sure about XML though, for one? #210 only came out the week just gone...

Re: On Death's Head II

Yes. It's a inherent problem when you separate same-name characters by Roman numerals at the end of their name that a character who actually has Roman numerals at the end of their name can screw up the system.

Re: Iron Man movie; heads up!(no spoilers)

I've been told the same thing - and that it's at the very, very end of the credits (as opposed to during the credits, like the "post-credits" scenes of Transformers & Hellboy)

Re: Time of Tales of Asgard, Raven Banner, etc.

I didn't dispute that - indeed, I specifically affirmed it in the post you quote. Thor v2 #80-85 makes it inescapable. Two things from Elim, Eye of Odin's story are true: (1) Gaia/Jord is Thor's mother [reaffirmed as recently as T3 3 and Hulk/Herc: When Titans Collide] and (2) there were previous As...

Re: Astonishing #13-24 and Messiah Complex [potential spoilerz]

Cannonballs relapsed. Seriously, there's no way around this. Sam's still in the infirmary *during* MCX (Someone - Beast IIRC - gets angry that he's on his feet while the Sentinels are hitting the Mansion), and doesn't get out until after the Sentinels are done. It's irreconcilable within sane parame...
