Ditto. Although it may become unwieldly, for those characters who appear multiple times in one book.

Re: King-Size Spider-Man Summer Special

Remember the Prime Directive of Canon. For our purposes, a story is canon unless A) it can't be, or B) Marvel says it isn't. Therefore, even if a story could be canon, if Marvel says it didn't happen, then it didn't.

Re: Graphical Chronology

I don't feel any pressure, and your suggestions are exciting. Perhaps once I start to sell off my collection, I can afford to invest in infrastructure upgrades like this. I appreciate those who can view what we have here and dream of what may be...one day.

Re: Graphical Chronology

Keep in mind here that I don't really know what I'm talking about... I have MySQL and PHP (the forum software runs on it), but I'd be concerned that putting the Project itself into a database accessible to visitors would put a strain on the database server (read: cost me more money). something a lit...

Re: Graphical Chronology

There are come inconsistencies though... There will always be legitimate inconsistencies. For instance, let's assume that Avengers 50 and Fantastic Four 75 take place at the same time. if Spider-Man appears in the first half of Avengers 50, and then in the second half of Fantastic Four 75, while Da...

Re: Spider-Man:Parallel Lives

Here was the statement regarding the FB question- This graphic novel is the story keeps jumping forward in time, it is necessary to partition each individual time period into it's own section. What I came up with is 21 different sections in which this graphic novel unfolds. Considering that both Pe...

Re: Body-only appearances

Okay. It just seemed a tad strange that if (e.g.) Prof X remote-controlled Cassandra Nova and thus "her" words and actions were actually his using her body, it's an OP; No... It might be a VO, but that's another discussion. OP is literally there, but off-panel. Let's say that the Human Torch is in ...

Re: Body-only appearances

Generally speaking, if a character's body appears, it's an actual appearance, regardless of where their consciousness is (see, for instance, the cases of comas, or corpses). If a character A's mind is controlling character B's body, then character A receives a behind-the-scenes appearance, and char...

Re: Annihilation: Conquest - other stuff

Standard disclaimer ("I haven't read the book") applies. I have draft MCP-style listings for everyone, but there's a few points I'd like to settle before I post it. 1) The Ultron/Adam Warlock switcheroonie. If someone could answer my question on how to format that (see Body-only appearances in MU), ...

Re: Body-only appearances

Generally speaking, if only a character's body appears it's a BTS. If a character appears disguised it's a full appearance. As I understand what we're talking about here, it's actually the opposite. See below. Xavier is listed as BTS for the issues his body has a chronology for. Nova is listed as B...

If you're looking for your suggestions to ever actually make it into the listings, then yes, you want to start a new topic.

Re: Spider-Man in What If? 7

I don't have the book in front me, but my assumption would be that (a) it's the real Spider-Man, as opposed to some alternate-timeline version, and that (b) he makes an actual appearance. If one of those assumptions is false, then the listing should be removed.

Is it really Spider-Man, or Daredevil? Do they actually appear?

The questions are rhetorical.
