Madelyne Pryor BTS in H2 340?

I've been looking through some issues and Madelyne Pryor HAD to be behind the scenes in Incredible Hulk 340. Here's why: in Uncanny X-Men 224, the X-Men get on a plane to Dallas. Maddie is with them. In H2 340, the X-Men's plane lands in Dallas but we don't see Maddie on the plane. In Uncanny 225, w...

Re: Spectacular Spider-Man #96

I just found a blog that points out that Spectacular Spider-Man 96 and ASM258-259 appear to be irreconcilable at first glance: http://stevegoble.blogspot.com/2009/08/peter-parker-spectacular-spider-man-92.html He tries to offer a solution but I'm not sure if it works. His solution requires that PPTS...

Re: Spectacular Spider-Man #96

From what I read, PPTSS 95 ends with Dagger being "swooped" away. Issue 96 begins with a recap of that same panel saying "minutes ago". Now, I don't have all of the issues listed in between, but I know that it would be very unlikely for four issues of ASM (that I have) to fit in the interm "minutes...

Re: FBs in ASM 608

In this flashback, Ben thinks to himself, "I'm just the clone of a guy with spider-powers who's now living in exile under an assumed name." I think this last statement is the key to placement. These flashbacks appear to occur shortly before Ben's death somewhere among books published in 1996. Note ...

Re: T2 80-FB

Writers have disregarded other aspects of the Tales of Asgard backups- the claim that the battle between Surtur and Odin created the moon, the claim that Earth wasn't rotating until Odin fought Surtur, references to Hela when Loki was a kid,etc. One thing bothers me about declaring JIM 112/2 out of ...

Hulk vs. Hercules Placement

I'm wondering when the flashback in the Hulk Vs. Hercules oneshot takes place. (The main story takes place between Incredible Hercules 115 and 116.) The Thing's appearance takes place after he came into contact with the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation in Thing 28. Thing 28 takes place after Mar...

Re: TRUTH & CA 247-FB

By the way, did anyone note the continuity problem with one of those Avengers Classic back-ups? One of them had Cap receiving his military backpay just after Avengers I#4, when he did not get it until the 1980's published stories under Stern, and the Super-Soldier Serum was found in his blood after...

Re: Excalibur 41 Placement

It's possible Cable gave the X-teams a number where they could contact him in case of an emergency, and somehow his futuristic technology prevented the X-teams for tracking down the location of the phone. If we're trying to deconstruct the scene in detail though... why does CABLE greet Excalibur as ...

Re: Jessica Drew and High Evolutionary

Colonel, I like the work you put in but I still think that this series should be out of continuity. You have to assume a lot of things to make it work- for example, that your namesake is an idiot. He thought a woman who was dead since 1930 was alive. Although, Nick often comes across as less than br...

Re: Jessica Drew and High Evolutionary

In the Origin series, she gets put into suspended animation a different way and awakes as an adult. Incidentally, I'm not sure if the Origin series will remain canon. It can easily be written off as a fake origin created by Veranke. We'll have to wait to see how the current Spider-Woman series handl...

Re: Wolverine Vol2 7

The dialogue in Cap 349 makes it clear Avengers 298 took place first. But you're right, Inferno could take place during the gap as well. But my point is this: which is simpler- splitting an issue that obviously isn't supposed to have a gap or assuming that the armor is replacement for armor that was...

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...
