Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

Then we're left with several alternatives: 1) FF 556 occurs before SI, and the FF's costumes in SI are erroneous (hey, that's been known to happen) 2) FF 556 occurs before SI, and the FF switched costumes temporarily (seems to me that in recent years the FF have been taking cues from the Wasp) 3) FF...

Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

Another "wait and see" I suppose. It's hard to see anything happening after SI, given how long the whole event will take place and not knowing what big shakeups will result from it. The FF title won't tie in to SI, as far as I know. Do we know the new FF costumes are here to stay?

Re: New Avengers Annual #2 -- what the #$%^&!?

Another clue that supports the theory that Dr. Strange returns to from his self-imposed exile sometime after NA@ 2 -- last week's FF 556. It that comic, Spidey appears in his classic costume and Dr. Strange appears as well, lending his magical powers in the fight against the CAP robot. This story co...

Re: Peter Parker and MJ in IF 8

I suspect that the Index overlooked IF 8. Newtron's chronology makes sense, and all these stories occur during the summer; the reference to "April 11" in DD 135 is topical. I don't have that issue, so I have no details about Peter's appearance.

Re: April call for analyses

Thanks, guys. I updated the call, and threw in the current arc in PWJ2. I flipped through issue #18 yesterday and decided to pass after all.

Not especially. Unfortunately, August just doesn't work. Now if that month were mid-May to mid-June, we'd be golden. :)

Re: Founding of Damage Control

Thanks, Fury. A quick check of Avengers came up empty, so I might have figured it was a continuity implant. How could I not remember good ol' A:EMH 1?

Founding of Damage Control

In this week's World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control #3, it is revealed that Tony Stark, Anne Marie Hoag, and Wilson Fisk drew up the charter for Damage Control "right after the Hulk smashed up Avengers Mansion for the first time." Anyone know when that happened? Stark later sold his stake in Da...
