Re: What If…? #7, 19, 23 & v2 #42; SI:I♥NYC /4

About What If 23- the weird thing is that the story establishes that the Crypto-Man's creator was a worshipper of the Dark Gods and the boy Jarella died saving was an illusion. It's not clear if this was the case in 616.

Re: Secret Wars #2-9

NOTE: Black Panther didn’t rewrite the past, he just did something in addition that we didn’t know about earlier. That’s my understanding, anyway. The theory many fans at the time had was that he changed history so that everything bad that happened to Wakanda after New Avengers 1 never happened. Th...

Isn't Flamers the same strip club from Silver Surfer 72 and Iron Man Special 1? The planet it was on was called Calculex.

Re: Hulk: Let the Battle Begin placement

Although we do have Marvel Double Shots 1, where Ross seems to be in command, placed after H2 264, since Jen seems to be She-Hulk at the time of this story. OTOH, in that story, Ross only gets involved after Betty calls him and tells him that the villain of the story has kidnapped Bruce and is tryin...

Re: Hulk: Let the Battle Begin placement

The complicating factor is Ross's appearance. He's leading troops against the Hulk. Moonstone triggers a breakdown in Ross in H2 229 and he's not back on active duty again until H2 264. Then H2 269-272 start the plot where Banner gains control of the Hulk. So if we want to place this after H2 239, i...

Re: Shadows & Light 2/3

IIRC, the issue is that Peter seems to be in high school but has already met the Rhino. (He didn't meet the Rhino until he was in college.)

Re: Flashback in She-Hulk Vol 3 #12

We discussed this before- the implication seemed to be that all of Nightwatch's heroic appearances were fabricated by the spell: http://www.chronologyproject.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10009 Charles Soule said that this takes place after Druid was possessed by an "evil spirit" : https://charless...

Shouldn't this be the Surgeon General II? Peter and Matt fought a female Surgeon General in Daredevil 305-306.

Re: Avengers #1.1-5.1

No, I mean that JIM 120 seems to be Thor's first meeting with Clint, Wanda and Pietro. And his dialogue is "You occupy this space as though you belong here!" And they explain to him that they're the new Avengers. So his appearance there takes place before his appearance in 5.1.

Re: Avengers #1.1-5.1

Slight problem- we've currently got the Avengers' appearances in JIM 120 placed after A 17. Wouldn't we have to move JIM 120 before A 17 to fit in this new series?

Re: Savage Hulk v2 #1-6

[Of course, the Abomination poses a small wrinkle here. In TTA 91/2 (his first story), Abomination is sent off to the Stranger’s world. In SS 12-FB, Abomination is upset at being imprisoned. In SS 12, Abomination is freed from imprisonment, then is sent back to the Stranger’s world. In T 178, he’s ...
