Re: Abomination BTS Hulk # 1?

Anyone have any insight into this one? I've re-read H3 25, TTA 90/2-91/2, the Wikipedia page, and several online sources, and still haven't the slightest clue as to what the basis is for concluding that Abomination (who would still have been Emil Blonsky) was BTS in H 1. I haven't had a chance yet t...

Re: Hulk Smash Avengers # 1

Well, the original rationale for placement didn't seem hugely compelling-- it was basically just going by the Wasp's costume (which was admittedly not a "firm indicator"): "There is an editorial note on the first page of Hulk Smash Avengers #1 that states, 'this story occurs between Avengers [vol. 1...

Re: Hulk Smash Avengers # 1

Not sure I agree. In HFFF, Peter David portrays the fully dumb Hulk. In SENTRY2-3, on page 6, the Sentry notes that the Hulk is "a mindless beast who becomes docile in your presence." In other words, he was already a dumb brute but just becomes a gentle puppy in Sentry's presence. Ditko's entire run...

Re: Hulk Smash Avengers # 1

No, the Hulk seems pretty dumb from the outset of TTA 60/2. In TTA 60/2, for example, he has difficulty understanding that he and Banner are actually separate entities. In TTA 62/2, his "brutish brain" is easily tricked by the Chameleon (pg. 7). On pg. 8, his "bestial brain" is "unable to retain one...

Abomination BTS Hulk # 1?

I have a question about the Abomination's entry. Abomination is listed as being "BTS" in H 1 and H@ 17-FB (presumably referring to the FB in the annual which occurred during H 1). But for the life of me, I can't remember any story establishing that Blonsky was BTS in those early stories. Can anyone ...

Hulk Smash Avengers # 1

Hi, I saw an old locked thread on "Placement of Hulk Smash Avengers #1", where the following was stated: Postby Paul Bourcier » Fri May 11, 2012 9:16 pm There is an editorial note on the first page of Hulk Smash Avengers #1 that states, "this story occurs between Avengers [vol. 1] #7 & #14." Because...

Re: Elektra in Elektra: The Hand

Sorry, while you were posting (but before I saw your post), I edited my old post upon realizing that M/N:I had been deemed non-canon (in the FAQ).

Re: Elektra in Elektra: The Hand

Note: post last edited ~11:15 pm: I just discovered the Marvel Calendar, which is a really impressive project. Anyway, the thoughts there tend to support the notion that Elektra: The Hand should occur near the end of the Enemy of the State storyline in W3 31 (albeit not exactly at the end) (see mate...

Elektra in Elektra: The Hand

I have a question about Elektra: The Hand by Akira Yoshida, which I just read for the first time. There, Elektra has apparently been resurrected by the Hand and is told the Hand's history prior to her joining them (although it's expressly noted that she will have 'free will' and not be in thrall to ...

Re: Black Widow (Romanoff and Belova) after BW5 6

I appreciate the info; I kind of suspected as much but haven't read all of their subsequent appearances. I miss the days when editorial was tighter and such things tended to actually get an explanation; I kind of wish Marvel would return to that approach.

Wow, okay. I couldn't help myself and read the spoiler. So I guess it probably doesn't matter much one way or the other.

Re: Black Widow (Romanoff and Belova) after BW5 6

I'm wondering if this is just a mistake by Marvel (or maybe the Marvel entries for BW just haven't been updated yet), since the Yelena Belova entry also lists her as having died as the Super Adaptoid, which fails to explain her subsequent appearances. Disclaimer: I haven't read the Marvel Comics Pre...

Black Widow (Romanoff and Belova) after BW5 6

I just re-read Black Widow: Homecoming and The Things They Say About Her (which reprint BW4 1-6 and BW5 1-6). At the end of that storyline, Black Widow (Romanoff) and Daredevil are both stranded in Cuba, under Belova's protection, and are persona non grata in the U.S. (due to Natasha's recent assass...

Re: Two-Gun Kid question

I've been interested in the character ever since he appeared in Dan Slott's She-Hulk run. I'm hoping Marvel eventually releases a Masterworks line to make this available for the general public. I'd certainly buy any such MMW volumes.
