Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

I think to be able to get this to work for all sides, we must consider this is not the same Selene and proceed from there. I thought Selene was a sort of energy vampire, rather than a telepath, anyway. Since, Emma did'nt know about the Sentinal's and she clearly does by UX 151-152, but the appearan...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

Yes, the flashback would definitely occur before her first published appearance. I was under the impression that all of the Nova Roma "history" was a recent creation by Selene at the time of New Mutants 9, although we didn't find that out until years later. I seem to recall a more recent story with...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

It seems to be the writers intent that this flashback occurs soon after Shaw takes over the Inner Circle, sometime between UX99 and UX129. Shaws dialogue to Namor supports this "Recently, I have personally usurped the command structure of the Inner Circle and am remaking it in my own image..." Othe...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

While considering where this Annual goes, one should consider Tony's and Namor's chronologies around this time period: In Iron Man#182 (May 1984) Tony stops drinking. Unfortunately, Stane still has almost all of Tony's fortune. Tony finally manages to get his fortune back in Iron Man#203 (February ...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

Any period where you think the meeting would fit better? I personally wonder if the "X-Man" #20 (October, 1996) to "X-Men" vol. 2 #73 (March, 1998) would fit better. Shaw was the new leader and affiliated with Selene for the first time since 1989. Way, way to late. In the flashback, the Inner Circl...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

- The flashback happened (since Namor also remembers it), but not when Emma remembers it. It should take place much later, after Selene becomes Black Queen. The contradicting elements are only from Emma's perspective (why would Namor care or know about the flashback's location as compared to the Da...

Re: Does "Joe the Gorilla" go by another name?

Didn't find him under "Joe" nor "The Gorilla", he has a fine beard, so long that he deserves a mention. He is also in the big Defenders fiasco that I mentioned earlier... He simply doesn't have a listing. He only appeared in "Avengers" vol. 1 #77 (June, 1970) and "Defenders" vol. 1 #64 (October, 19...

Re: A chronology addition for Pecos ~cough~

Not sure if this is the right method but I noticed Pecos doesn't have his Defenders v1 63-65 mash up included under his name. I realize he matters not, but a cowboy deserves some respect in my book ;) He doesn't have a listing at all actually. He is not the Captain America character. This cowboy fi...

Re: Uncanny X-Men Annual #2

I just got done with this yesterday. There is some interesting Dark Reign related stuff (which makes me a little more confident that Bendis isn't going to hi-jack Emma Frost) but the flashback has some major continuity issues. Basically there's a Hellfire Club meeting where Sebastian Shaw tries to ...

Stiltman II(Michael Watts) Turk Barrett was the second guy to use the Stilt-Man armor back in "Daredevil" vol. 1 #186 (September, 1982). Another "new" Stilt-Man appeared in "Marvel Team-Up" vol. 3 #9 (August, 2005), "Spider-Man Unlimited" vol. 2 #12 (January, 2006) and "Ms. Marvel" vol. 2 #1 (May, ...

He appears to be saying that Veranke became Queen shortly after Galactus ate the Skrull throneworld, and that she was Queen of at least a sect of the skrulls for years thereafter before she decided to replace Jessica Drew. The various claimants of the throne following the death of R'Kll and Anelle ...

Re: Nova v4 #13-19

As far as I can tell, this is Dr. Necker's first MU appearance, but an alternate version played a key part in Death's Head II's origin (written by one D. Abnett). The references to the Planet Hulk Death's Head Guards as "Minions" are apparently a further reference in that direction. Actually two al...

The Onslaught uniforms consisted of full body uniforms for everyone but the Thing, long white collars, big visible "4" signs above the heart area but otherwise kept the Byrne colorations. They only appeared in #415-416 (August - September, 1996) and issues relating to the crossover. The Heroes rebo...
