Official designation of Heroes Reborn universe?

Does anyone know if an official designation (such as Earth-616, etc) was ever given to the Heroes Reborn universe (ie the Franklinverse or Counter-Earth)?

First appearance of Earth-616?

I know that FF 1 (Nov 1961) is considered the first MODERN appearance of Earth-616 and the Marvel Universe. But does anyone know what issue published by Timely/Atlas/Marvel could be considered the first ACTUAL appearance? Where there any issues published prior to Marvel Comics #1 (Oct 1939) that con...

Re: the TWELVE 1 Index

In TWELVE 1, the real names of most of the heroes were given. The names for Phantom Reporter, Mister E, Dynamic Man, Fiery Mask, Laughing Mask, Black Widow and Master Mind Excello were the same as the names given during their Golden Age stories (although Mister E was mistakenly mentioned as Vince Ja...

Re: the TWELVE 1

Although Marvel later bought Malibu and even published comics from its Ultraverse line as an alternate universe in Marvel continuity, the Genesis Universe was not connected to it and I don't know if it is owned by Marvel. It is. The universe is mentioned briefly in the back of the Alternate Univers...

Re: the TWELVE 1

Hey Colfury. I think your placement for Red Raven may be a bit off. You have it placed right after RED RAVEN 1. RED RAVEN RED RAVEN 1 *TWELVE 1 UX 44-FB-BTS SUB-M 26-FB-BTS T@ 12/2-FB UX 44-FB T@ 12/2-FB SUB-M 26-FB SUB-M 26-FB UX 44-FB M/PRM 29 INV 6 M/PRM 30 INV 35-FB INV 36 INV 37 INV 38 M/CP 160...

Re: the TWELVE 1

This appearance of Miss Fury seems to bring her into the Marvel Universe. I do not think she has appeared in the MU since her initial appearance in MISS FURY 1-8, published by Timely from 1942-1946, and these stories were themselves reprints from earlier newspaper strips which started in 1941 and ra...

Re: the TWELVE 1

If it is possibly miscolored, I suppose it could also be Marvel Boy, particularly with the swashbuckler boots. I am going to look through http://www.geocities.com/copperagecomics/index.html and see if I can turn up anything. Thanks Colfury

Re: the TWELVE 1

Okay, Golden Age fans, I think there are a few characters that we missed in the big fight scene. Any GA experts, can you confirm any of these characters? And any placement suggestions? TWELVE 1 (2). The woman in a black mask between Dynamic Man and Dum Dum Dugan.She is easily identifiable as Miss Fu...

Re: Conspiracy #1-2

I really liked that bit. We know from various places(Strange Tales 135, Fury 1, Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin 6) that Tony Stark recommended Fury for the position, but Conspiracy reveals that not everyone agreed with him right away.(which makes sense, Stoner was appointed director before Fury was. N...

Re: Conspiracy #1-2

Col_Fury was nice enough to send me his analysis of how this series overlaps with INV 4. I've had a chance to look through both books side-by-side, and here's how it breaks down: Invaders #4 (1-2) Captain America, the Human Torch, & Toro enter a military air base. Conspiracy #1 (6:3)-FB Cliff Garner...

Conspiracy #1-2

Here is my review for the CONSPIRACY mini-series. Thanks to Enda for getting me interested in this series and for posting some of his own notes. This series was fun as it held many revelations of the Silver Age. I also want to thank Col_Fury for his WWII notes and Paul Bourcier for his feedback . Th...

Re: Wolverine: First Class

For placement of this story, it would be after UX 138, when Kitty moved to the mansion, but before UX 139, when she was first shown in costume. In W:FC 1, she states it is the first time she is in costume. Wolverine was last shown in his yellow costume in UX 137 and UX@ 4, and then in his brown cost...
