Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

Hold on a second-why is Mystique telling Freedom Force that X-Factor's ship "just landed" if X-Factor's ship has been back a week? i say again my argument about "ship landing": youre right about ship landing but ship also could be "flying off and landing again" and opal commenting about it any othe...

Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

I'm not sure if I accept the "press never saw the Muties" theory. Warlock suggests they join the press conference, forms his body into a slide and we see Rictor sliding down and calling out to Scott and Jean. That clearly suggests they were part of the press conference. However, I like the "a Nobel ...

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

In Cap 349, we don't see Beast on panel, but he drops Cap off near Hydrobase, where Avengers Mansion is located at the time. (Steve decides to swim part of the way.) Cap runs into D-Man, who's been waiting for Cap there for a while. That doesn't seem consistent with Hank spending days at Avengers Ma...

Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

New Mutants were reunited with them in front of a zillion reporters. Can the hyperbole. When you state things that can't be true, readers will doubt the veracity of your other statements. I don't follow your reasoning. If the New Mutants are reunited in front of some reporters, it does not follow t...

Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

There's another problem in your reconstruction- in X-Men 253, Moira wonders where Rahne and the other New Mutants are. But your reconstruction makes it seem like that scene takes place a few days after X-Factor returned home and the New Mutants were reunited with them in front of a zillion reporters.

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

Ugh. Now you've made me get my books out, and I immediately see a flaw in your reasoning. You're being far too literal. "The Beast is away, helping the Avengers", with a footnote to Avengers Annual #17, does not automatically equal "the Beast is fighting a pitched battle in Avengers Annual #17 this...

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

you're placing all the events of the second half of Wolverine 7, all of Wolverine 8 and X-Men 235-239 between Avengers Annual 17 and X-Men 240. Why are you assuming that I'm placing Uncanny #235-238 after the gap? Why can't they go during it as well, thus making the chronology a simple and quick: A...

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

And why does my solution require "weeks" between the two books? Is this one of those "well, weeks pass in book X even though only days pass in book Y" situations? The Marvel Universe is LITTERED with stuff like that -- temporal references are easily overruled in my book, since they're more or less ...

Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

Blame New Mutants Annual 5. If you ignore it, most of the other continuity can be squeezed in.

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

So, yes, creating a gap "violates his intent", just as assuming replacement armor. But it keeps the spirit of his story intact -- albeit with a lot of stuff shoveled between pages -- whereas "replacement armor" kind of takes the wind out of that plot point's sails. Fixing this basically boils down ...

Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

Because the X-Factor 50 story has Apocalypse saying that Caliban's mission on Earth must start soon and X-Factor 51 story has Apocalypse deciding that Caliban must leave him and go off on his own and Caliban leaving.

Re: Jean Grey's Appearances in Atlantis Attacks

I thought of that too but it doesn't work. Caliban appears in X-Factor 50, and it clearly takes place prior to his appearance in X-Factor 51, where he and Apocalypse watch X-Factor return to Earth.

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

Yes, we can assume that the X-Men were all forced to get new costumes (and comb their hair) -- but we don't have any in-book evidence that they did that (do we)? I'm starting to think that it was Claremont's intent to tell the armor's origin story in the Wolverine arc -- and therefore have the Wolv...

Loki in Avengers 311

Loki's chronology reads the following:
Loki
CA 365
A@ 19/3-FB
A 311
Now, in Cap 365, Cap and Namor find out Hydrobase is sunk. In Avengers 311, Hydrobase IS sunk. Obviously, Avengers 311 has to happen before Cap 365.
