Re: Call For Analyses: Missing Books

Speaking of foreign stories, did the three stories collected in Panini's " Marvel Europa " TPB ever get analyzed? I remember the French Wolverine story ("Saudade") did, but there are foreign Spidey and Daredevil stories in there too. "Marvel Europa" translates the three stories into English. I order...

Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

based on what's already been published, not conjecture SHIELD probably took control Strange's exile seemed to set up a new status quo ...I see. For the record, Col. Fury's theory, that I'm championing, has nothing to do with "out-of-context preview panels". He simply found a way to read NA@2 that a...

Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

Well, what "wham and done" decisions have been made ... that you would reverse, hmm? Beats me, I haven't had the time lately to really do any deep thinking on the matter. I just don't like the rush to judgment that occasionally happens around here ... because, when later issues come out and a more ...

Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

I mentioned this back on p2 So you did. Thought it sounded familiar. My vote is still to wait That's pretty much always my vote as well. However, these young hooligans these days just can't wait to chronologize right off the press -- no desire to wait for some context, just wham and done and set in...

Oy. Preview for ASM #555... http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=149389 We're well past "One More Day" at this point, and what have we here ... Dr. Strange, Wong, and a still-standing and still boarded-up Bleecker Street sanctum. On the minus side, I think we're going to have to break down an...

Re: Wisdom and Earth-691

You realize that the main Marvel Universe's sliding timescale, coupled with the fact that Vance Astro's 616 self, Justice, will never significantly age, will eventually mean that Major Astro couldn't have been BORN in the 20th century, let alone become a qualified astronaut? I mean, Justice is, what...

Re: X-Men: First Class v2 #6-8/9

XFC2 9/2 (1:2-1:6). BW in old costume, black hair. Battles Hydra, tries on different costumes, inspired by image of Marvel Girl.
You're considering that back-up strip canon?

Re: Call For Analyses: Missing Books

FANTASTIC FOUR FIREWORKS 1-3 (1999)
IIRC, this series is a retelling of the events in FF #35-40. Branded "Marvel Remix" or something similar, it's just about as canon as "Professor X and the X-Men".

Re: Wisdom 1-6

that suggests a sliding timescale at work.
Well ... yeah. Just like every other comic in the MU.

I'm interested to see Don Campbell's take on the Martians too, though... :)

Spidey is shown without his mask on in NA@ 2

Re: Astonishing #13-24 and Messiah Complex [potential spoilerz]

By the way, hopefully this placement will also solve a little bugaboo of mine: was Cassandra Nova really Ernst, or not? Short version: Cassandra Nova was tricked into entering the malleable body of the Shi'Ar Superguardian named Stuff. Stuff was "programmed to learn", and the notion seemed to be tha...

Astonishing #13-24 and Messiah Complex [potential spoilerz]

Apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere, but I was thinking last night about where to place Astonishing v3 #13-24... Marvel has stated several times that that whole arc occurs "now" -- that it can't occur any earlier than the publication date of the final issue, and we'll all understand...

Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

Well, personally I'm still on the "ignore that MA #1-6 is supposed to occur mere minutes after the team was formed" bandwagon. Create a nice big gap in MA #1 and shovel the Mighty team's appearances in Fallen Son, World War Hulk and New Avengers into it. "Pull a Cable", as it were. ;) As for the One...
