Re: Official Index to the Marvel Universe #1 Errata / Spider-Man

In regards to ASM 601/2, there's a problem with placing Alias #23, '03 fb before ASM #4. The Scorpion appears in that issue of Alias, and he doesn't come onto the scene until ASM #20...how do you reconcile this? Is Alias #23 spread out over months? Can someone actually explain to me what happens in...

I kinda wondered since you were counting Eric Masterson's receiving the Lion of Olympus' "gift," but in hindsight, Eric Masterson's one thing. Clor/Ragnarok's something else entirely.

Re: Thor Vs. Hercules - where and when?

How do you do that, by the way? Is that a search function? Nah - playing around in Excel and Notepad involving a number of search-and-replaces, sorts, and an IF statement (replace -BTS with (tab)-BTS in Notepad, paste into Excel, sort by -BTS/not and eliminate. Similar process to get rid of the pag...

Re: Kraven the Hunter in X-Men & Spider-Man #1

You're probably right, Jeph. The flashback portions of ASM '96 take place before WTS 4-6, which (according to the Human Torch's chronology) precede X:HY 7-9 (and by extension X:HY 16). So if ASM '96 and WTS 4-6 take place prior to X:HY 7-9 and UX 66 precedes X&SM 1, it would make sense that X&SM 1 w...

Re: Avengers finale/relaunch

Been something of a major discussion over on the Jinxworld boards... We're fairly certain of a single core Avengers title (some have even thought it might go three issues a month a la Spider-Man), and there was a rumor floating around of a Christos Gage/Mike McKone "Avengers Academy" series to repla...

Re: Assemblage of Avatars

FWIW, I happened across a number of entries regarding the Assemblage on the Unofficial Appendix site... the only direct reference they give is OHOTMU Hardcover #7. Here's the list of the entries I'd found (not sure if it's a complete list of the attendees, asterisks denote if the character has an MC...

The Dr. Doom arc in Bendis' run on Mighty Avengers, maybe?

Re: Does anyone own a complete run of "X-Men Classic"?

Just a speculation (I remember flipping through some issues in that span), but I think the issues after #44 didn't have an editor per se, since they were bare-bones reprints of the UX issues, rather than the previous issues that had "deleted scene" pages and backups. So the credited editor would be ...

ComicBookDB.com says no on all four. Granted, that's like treating Wikipedia as 100% reliable, but there you go. :)

Re: War Machine Vol. 2 #1 placement questions

Out of those issues, Hand was in IM5 8-10, 12, and 13, and WARM2 2, 3, 8, and 10. Her first-ever appearance, actually, was IM5 8.

As far as Jacobs goes, I'm not seeing any appearances between his shooting by Stuart Clarke and WARM2 1, so it indeed looks like a "he got better" scenario.

Re: Iron Man vs. Whiplash

Is this Anton Vanko supposedly the same character as the original Dynamo, or is it assumed that this is someone completely new with the same name and a possible familial connection to the Anton Vanko who died back in the Tales of Suspense days? There's a couple of lines in H:WG that strongly sugges...

In continuity with the 616-verse or in continuity with the films? Because if I recall correctly, one of the elements of t...

Re: San Francisco Mayor Sadie Sinclair

I think the first mention of Her Honor's surname was UX 509.
