Re: Range of Influence of Marvel Time

So far, the only "official" explanation I've read is that Galador "apparently exists under a different rate of time than Earth." This is an idea that just makes me cringe inside. And if ANNIHILATORS does reference SPACEKNIGHTS, then not only will the poor continuity of the earlier miniseries be for...

Re: Range of Influence of Marvel Time

Human characters such as Quasar & Professor X have lived out in space for extended periods of time without the accelerated aging you'd expect in such a scenario. Okay, that's one good argument against my speculation. If only Earth or near Earth was subject to the sliding timescale, then the Skrulls...

Range of Influence of Marvel Time

We all accept that life on Marvel-Earth is subject to a phenomena known as "Marvel Time" which causes time to pass for its inhabitants at a rate that is (generally) somewhere between one-fourth to one-third as fast as time passes in our "real" world. As a recent issue of the Official Index to the Ma...

Re: Marvel Zombies Supreme

I'm curious: Why would a mention of Project Pegasus translate to Earth-616? The only stories involving Project Pegasus which I've ever read were set on the "mainstream" Earth or on "What If?" Earths that had diverged from it. Of course, it's also possible that Earth-712 has its own Project Pegasus ...

Marvel Zombies Supreme

Just a quick question: Does anyone know where in the Marvel Multiverse the upcoming MARVEL ZOMBIES SUPREME miniseries is set? The Marvel Previews solicitations mention Project Pegasus (which would mean Earth-616) but several onlines sites are stating that it's set on Earth-712, the home of the origi...

Concerning the new Official Index

First of all, while I'm glad to see this series is back, who exactly chose its new name? I mean, AVENGERS; THOR & CAPTAIN AMERICA: OFFICIAL INDEX TO THE MARVEL UNIVERSE is a long and unwieldy title. Also, wouldn't having the "Official Index" part come before the "Avengers, Thor & Captain America" pa...

Re: X-Factor Forever - Apocalypse

Woah, so that means this timeline diverged when Apocalypse was a young warrior, before he discovered Ship then? He talks about the history of the Deviants and Eternals and how he subtly manipulated them and contributed to the destruction of Lemuria. We're talking ANCIENT history. Looks like he's be...

Re: Coming from Marvel in May

Marvel is apparently building "ASTONISHING" as a line of continuity-light and self-contained books : - ASTONISHING X-MEN: XENOGENESIS #1 (of 5), by Ellis & Andrews, officially switches to the "series of miniseries" model. So, this mean that the current ASTONISHING X-MEN ongoing series is ending wit...

Re: What's the deal with Madelyne Pryor?

So, Don Campbell, Per Degaton and Marc Oliver Frisch aren't objective? I also believe that PD and DC on that Appendix page (As quoted from Archive 35), take as the starting point the idea that Madelyne's resurrection, as initially depicted, was impossible - DC explicitly states such (oh, and gets t...

Cancelled or just "on hiatus?"

As the year draws to a close, there are a few things I'd like to get squared away about several monthly Marvel series which don't seem to be ongoing anymore. I suspect that they've been quietly cancelled (in which case I can remove them from my "current" list) but I'm not absolutely sure that they'r...

Re: Phoenix Force in flashback - plus Gladiator Q's

Gladiator's origin appeared in War of Kings: Warriors #1 which, as Somebody said, was a printing of online-original material. As for your other questions, the story took place "centuries ago" when the Shi'Ar Majestor was named T'Korr. Kallark and his fellow cadets competed to become Strontia's repre...

Re: Human Robot/M-11

The Menace #11 story was reprinted in the (first) AoAtlas HC. At no point is a location specified or shown, and nor did it show the Robot falling into a river (it's a simple twist story with second-person narration that ends with the Robot, unable to distinguish singulars and plurals, going to kill...

Re: Human Robot/M-11

There's another bit of information that maybe should be considered, and that's the location where the Human Robot was first activated. According to the Pre-FF #1 Pages website, Menace #11 shows that the Human Robot was built and activated in New York City, and it later fell into a nearby river. Howe...

Re: Alternative Calendar Dating for Marvel Universe

Kree Calendar. As per Avengers #134 and the OHOTMU series, the Kree Year Zero was about half a million years ago, Kree Pacifists first appeared in Kree Year 476, the Supreme Intelligence was built in Kree Year 4538 (circa 990,750 BC), Kree Pacifists met the Cotati in Kree Year 4760, and Supreme Int...

Re: Coming from Marvel in September

Thanks for the information, Somebody. I just wanted to know if I should keep those series on my active list or move them to my list of cancelled titles. Now, with your info, I guess I can move them. Also, regarding UX:FC, it seems that while Marvel Previews is now treating it as an ongoing series, D...
