Spidey's first costume/webshooters

After (finally) reading Parallel Lives recently I decided to take a detailed look at Spider-Man's early chronology. For his origin I did panel-to-panel comparisons from AAF 15, SPECSM 1/2, ASM 94, PPTSS 60/2, and SM:PL. Anyway, the biggest problem I have trouble resolving deals with the original cos...

Re: Graphical Chronology

I don't mean to be pessimistic but I just keep thinking of Marvel's "universe connections" and how unmanageable that feature seems to be. Plus, as Administrator points out, what happens w/ all the inescapable inconsistencies. Even with Marvel attempting to maintain a solid continuity today's comics ...

Did the opening page happen to mention ASM 545 anywhere?

Re: Spider-Man:Parallel Lives

This topical/sliding timescale explanation was mentioned back when this series was first announced . I don't expect that such things would keep it out of MCP chronology but I mention it because I simply didn't like the first issue and that was just one of the problems. At some point I will read thro...

Re: i know it's not Marvel, but, The Dark Knight?

DC has an additional 20+ years of stories for their flagship characters. Plus, from what little I know, they didn't even try to maintain a continuity until COIE in the mid-80's. I'm pretty sure that when Batman: LOTDK came out they actually said those would be out-of-continuity tales (unlike the Sta...

Re: i know it's not Marvel, but, The Dark Knight?

After seeing Iron Man I thought that was the best comic movie ever (nudging out Spidey 2). I heard from people that DK was better and was surprised to find myself agreeing with that sentiment. I don't remember ever feeling exhausted after watching a movie before but it was just non-stop intensity. T...

Re: WOSM 11-12 placement

Herein lies the problem- (The apartment has also been fixed up by PPTSS 110, and is still a wreck in WOSM 12.) His apartment isn't restored until WOSM 15. He is shown living in the damaged place in each WOSM issue up until then. Clearly if he can sleep in the place he wouldn't worry about having a b...

Re: WOSM 11-12 placement

If the meeting between Spidey & DD didn't take place immediately at the end of PPTSS 110 then WOSM 12 could fit in before that final page. Just don't think of WOSM 12 directly following issue 11. After all, wouldn't the fire+police want some time to investigate the apartment crime scene before letti...

Re: Spidey burglar chronology?

He is still unnamed in Spidey canon. Dennis "Spike" Carradine is his non-continuity name. I was surprised to see the Burglar does not actually have an entry here. Spiderfan gets most of their appearance lists from the MCP as far as I know. Its not too long of a list to piece together his full chrono...

Re: Suggested move for M/TU 73

The comment by Spidey at the end almost seems like a throwaway line. He hasn't exactly had a warm relationship with the police throughout his costumed career. Plus, considering he just got cleared in ASM 186, by verbally abusing a cop after causing a traffic jam and seeing the Owl left in a vegetati...

Re: Spider-Man:Parallel Lives

IF you want to consider it canon I don't think it would be that difficult. Most of the first 3 issues occur between the end of AAF 15 pg 6 (costume design) and the start of pg 7 (his tv appearance). I would guess the rest happens between pg 8 and the first panel of pg 9 (newspaper headlines make Sp...

Re: Event ordering question

I couldn't find any mention of FF@ 3 in the OMITASM that would shed any light on the question. Is it only Spidey's placement that is off for the wedding? There are an awful lot of characters that appear in FF@ 3, M/H&L '96, & MARVELS 3.

Re: Spider-Man:Parallel Lives

Somebody's analysis of the narration's tense is correct. Maybe I need to put FB's on everything but the last panel *doh* The only other argument for FB is that the opening 2 pages have the faces of (adult) Peter and MJ superimposed over parts of the panels along with their narration. It gives the im...

Re: Celestials (group) chronological appearances?

You're just going to have to do a lot of cross-referencing. I have limited myself to the extensive chronology of Spider-Man but did a similar thing by incorporating Ben Reilly appearances into my list. That was only 2 characters, and they obviously line up fairly easily w/ separate appearances, but ...
