Re: Marvel reboot?

It looks, at present, very like Age of Apocalypse over again. Some stuff from Battleworld will be dropped into the MU-proper, but no major retcons and not much else changes as a direct result. Some titles - like Thor and Angela - are even resuming their stories despite the eight month gap.

Re: Questions regarding M/FAN2 2 and M/FAN2 3

It is absolutely, definitely the post-Onslaught (Bannerless) Hulk in M/FAN2 2.

Re: Hulk Smash Avengers # 1

Can't really use Sentry as evidence - up until World War Hulk, Hulk *always* turned into Savage (dumb) Hulk around Sentry, regardless of what else he was at the time.

Re: X-Men student View

However, a quick check of the Xavier Insititute entry in the handbooks does turn up a second possibility. I present Frank (later identified in the Handbooks as Frank Ludlum, Pinocchio), who turned up in X-Men Unlimited #10, and a panel from New X-Men #10 (the first panel shows our View-lookalike ag...

Re: Ultimate End v1 #1

Bear in mind, whether these are the "actual" characters is suspect - Spider-Man-616 and Cyclops-616 were on the liferaft, the latter Phoenixed and ultimately killed by Doom; lots of characters are in out-of-date costumes (Iron Man-616 being the main example - he's not Superior Iron Man in mind or ar...

Re: INFINITY to ORIGINAL SIN

And in the next panel he says his name is Peter. Yeah, that's him. I don't see why that last page couldn't happen a while after the main story; Boomerang's telling a story and that's the only place Peter appears. Speaking of Superior Foes #17; yup, that's Black Cat all right. Huh. I think you may b...

Re: INFINITY to ORIGINAL SIN

All-New Invaders 1-5 (“not long” after X:L2 23) No, seriously, you want to finish X:L2 before placing anything with reference to it... And, I fear, the big one: -Boomerang's girlfriend was Black Cat all along (I think?). Can it all fit in before her arrest (Superior Spider-Man #21) or after her rel...

Re: Two questions from Simonson's Thor run

Part of the reason why I was taking a look at Eric and Roger Willis is that they HAVE recently reappeared, albeit only in flashbacks. As revealed in Loki: Agent of Asgard #15, Eric and Roger are, respectively, the grandfather and father of Verity Willis, Loki's best friend and the main supporting c...

Re: Two questions from Simonson's Thor run

Normal "civilian" characters are often given lower priority, I've found. Especially ones that die in their only appearance, like Dr. Eric Willis. His kid Roger, though, has a few more appearances. He only appears in Thor #345-354, bar #351, though, so I'm not sure how much of a service providing a ...

Re: Two questions from Simonson's Thor run

First, I recently came to the MCP to find out in which issues Eric Willis and his son Roger had appeared (as part of the Surtur Saga). Unfortunately, I was surprised to discover that neither character has a listing on the MCP. There are listings for a lot of characters who appear in those issues (T...

Nope! :) Does it end as a lead-in to Infinity, or something?

I'll simply advise reading right to the end before making any more placement suggestions for it...

Re: AVX to INFINITY

Thanks! X-Men: Legacy v2 #7 is a “couple weeks” after #6, and is fairly standalone; #8 & #9 are also fairly standalone. Also, no real guest stars to speak of (Blindfold appears, and some background JGS students like the Stepford Cuckoos). #10-12 happens at some point after #9, and features the Red ...

Re: AVX to INFINITY

Mighty Thor #18-22 / Journey into Mystery #642-645 is one story arc that appears to take place over two days. Loki probably appears here before YA2 10-FB and Marvel Now Point One #1/4. That's absolutely cast-iron certain. The Loki in "Everything Burns" is Loki II/Kid Loki. The Loki in the Young Ave...

Re: Avengers: Ultron Forever v1 #1

Hulk's from shortly after Incredible Hulk v1 #6.

Rhodes is from his first stint as IM, pre IM 200.

She-Thor's from the relatively near future, and so may become placeable after we see the ANAD Avengers setup. (She and Vision have been teammates for a bit by this point).

Re: AVX to INFINITY

A chunk of that chronology does occur before Infinity, and we need to revisit the whole mess we left months ago, including Rogue's chronology post-UA 22. Also, I have Battle of the Atom before Infinity and Agent Felix places BOTA after Infinity. My reasoning is that Logan still has his healing fact...
