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...

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

The only specific in the eye's story that is true is that Thor is Gaia/Jord's kid, and the only other thing that has any truth to it is that there were previous Asgardian cycles. And, hell, even Garak from DS9 mixed a touch of truth into his habitual lies. NONE of the other specifics - Odin being fu...

Re: ALIAS 9

I don't have this issue (or any other issue of Alias) to double-check, but wouldn't this have been during the "aged Rick" story in Captain Marvel? Just for corroboration

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

Given Thor v3 #8, any references to non-blond Thors interacting with humanity should be taken with gallons of salt.

Plus, the eye's version of events was retconned by Simonson & you know it Enda.

Re: March Sales

Largest percentage increase for the month (in a tight race) goes to X-Force #2, with a 622% jump. That's what we call a "screw-up" - X-Force #1 was the top-selling issue of February at 105k, and it's actually fallen by 22.3% month-on-month. What Mr Mayo's done is taken the X-Force #2 numbers relati...

Re: X-Men: First Class v2 #6-8/9 & 11

Points: 1) I'm not convinced any chronological references made by the X-Men themselves in this issue are... entirely reliable, by the nature of the story. Just as a loophole. 2) That's not the Blackbird in X:FC2 11, which is the jet in X:FC1 5. It's one of their earlier jets (either the "thought-con...

X-Men: First Class v2 #6/2, 8 & 11

I'm noticing that there's a distinct lack of posting about #11 so far here :) Leaving aside the meta stuff for the moment, I'm using this thread because aspects of X:FC2 6/2 and X:FC2 8 get picked up in this issue - the "Mysterio escapes" newspaper headline from the #6 backup, and the reality-warpin...

Well, since I've got you both rushing to your comics :), here's the complete list AFAICS of issues which are in both Spidey & Iceman's listings without a qualification (page ranges, etc) to make it obvious they don't meet on-panel. Some are obvious cameos (e.g., A 3, COC 1, ORDER 5) or have been cov...

I was going to toss in something about them being Amazing Friends, but I was too lazy to come up with something clever. :) Actually, now you mention it, didn't Spider-Man Family: Amazing Friends (the first of the SMF one-shots, before they started numbering them) have Bobby not knowing Pete's ID in...
