Re: VENOM! (and the Symbiotes)

Oh, and Carnage USA called the ripped-back-apart Hybrid symbiotes Lasher (green), Agony (purple/violet), Phage (orange) and Riot (indigo). Yes, annoyingly the writer didn't realise that Wikipedia was listing them under names fans had made up and used them in the comic. It should be noted that, whil...

Re: CAPTAIN UNIVERSE!

What about the Venom analogy? I never get any answer on that. I think there'd be a case to make for listing the various symbiotes independently of their hosts - obviously there'd be a lot of overlap, but given the Venom symbiote has gone through more than a few hosts and been seen active while host...

Re: CAPTAIN UNIVERSE!

Thanks for the attachment. I would point to the use of the passive voice in that picture "I have been called the uni-power" i.e. that's what others call me, they call me a "power" because I "empower" them. I also disagree with the wording "empowers every Captain Universe", it empowers hosts who the...

Re: CAPTAIN UNIVERSE!

I'm slightly torn. Not on the Uni-Power bit - I was the one who argued for it to be listed as such originally, and see attached Leoparis - but on the "listing EVERYONE who's ever bonded with it as Captain Universe" part AS Captain Universe, particularly after the Captain Universe/(team-up) series o...

Re: CAPTAIN UNIVERSE!

Straight off, the Phalanx Scientist you have down as "CAPTAIN UNIVERSE XXVII" never used the name, for instance. Neither did the Hulk in Captain Universe/Hulk. I'd imagine that since the Hulk has his own listing and was only very briefly empowered by the Uni-Power, though he is valid for bringing u...

Re: CAPTAIN UNIVERSE!

There aren't 30 Captain Universes, only one inhabiting different people. Let's go to the Handbooks. Stuart? I concur with Jeph and Col. Fury - there's one Uni-Power, which is sentient so needs its own listing. If the Uni-Power was taking over the hosts' bodies and controlling them, then there might...

Re: Recent article about the Sliding Timescale

But what about Haller herself - like Magneto, she's a Holocaust survivor, ja? And she was just used and killed off in X-Men Legacy as the Israeli Ambassador to the UK. What age was SHE when she had Legion? It may be easier, rather than constantly making these characters retroactively older, to pull...

Re: Recent article about the Sliding Timescale

I have a suspicion that Xavier is a Gulf War veteran now, not Vietnam. I'm not so sure - they kept him in Korea for a LONG time after characters like Iron Man had been moved on from Vietnam - it was just before HoM when they placed Xavier in Vietnam. I'll admit I'm going more from general suppositi...

Re: Recent article about the Sliding Timescale

I have a suspicion that Xavier is a Gulf War veteran now, not Vietnam. But that's irrelevant to the point. I strongly disagree with what that fan Wiki is saying: "its that a 200 year old Magneto relating to a 40 year old Xavier as a friend and equal is an impossibility of character." Impossibility? ...

Re: Inhuman appearances in FF # 117 and I:US 1

Actually, mentioning the Seeker reminds me. The Inhumans entry in OHOTMU HC5 named the brothers - Seeker III is Kadlec, Seeker IV is Uys.

Re: Two Elizabeth Braddocks?

Thanks for the link, Loki! I see you wrote this article (and related articles), nice work! Thanks. I see that CB 29 -FB is mentioned in both Captain Britain's parents' histories there, but there's no mention of CB 28 -FB. So it looks like we at the MCP (and the wiki Don mentioned) got the issue wro...

Re: Two Elizabeth Braddocks?

Thanks for the link, Loki! I see you wrote this article (and related articles), nice work! ALSO, your article mentions that Captain Britain's father was a member of the Captain Britain Corps. This was recently referenced again in Uncanny X-Force volume 1. And yet, we have no mention at the MCP of B...

Re: ATLANTIS ATTACKS!

The Handbooks established that the mysterious character was Phaeder, an Inhuman. Yay! Which Handbook revealed that? I'm not sure, sorry. Probably the 12-issue "A-Z" series just prior to the hardcovers. Check various versions of the High Evolutionary's profile until you find it? :( FF Encyclopedia.

Re: X-Men Legacy v2 #13

It's Plokta rather than Plotka - I used to make the same mistake. He's named after a British SF fanzine, which in turn is named after the acronym "Press Lots of Keys To Abort."
