Squadron Supreme v4 #12

Post by DonCampbell » Sun Aug 13, 2017 8:47 pm

Warrior Woman (Zarda from Earth-Other Squadron Sinister)
Power Princess (Zarda from Earth-712)
Modred the Mystic
two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (neither named) - both killed by Warrior Woman
other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (none named)
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jim Hammond (a.k.a. the original Human Torch)
Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
Thundra
Blur (Jeff Walters)

Nighthawk (Kyle Richmond)
Ulysses Cain

Hyperion (Marc Milton) – in an inaudible, invisible and intangible state
Doctor Spectrum (Nenet) – in an inaudible, invisible and intangible state

the past – when Atlantis still lived
------------------------------------------
Namor the Sub-Mariner
Attuma
other Atlanteans living in Atlantis – most BTS (none named)
Hyperion – both his contemporary self and his older and intangible self from the future
Doctor Spectrum – both her contemporary self and her older and intangible self from the future
Blur – his contemporary self
Warrior Woman (posing as “Power Princess”) – her contemporary self
Nighthawk – his contemporary self

Note #1: On the last page of this issue, the Squadron Supreme are fighting against Namor, Attuma and multiple (unnamed) Atlantean warriors in what could be an alternate view of the scene that was depicted on pages 4-5 of Squadron Supreme v4 #1. The fact that Hyperion has not yet grabbed Namor’s arm could mean that this scene on page 21 takes place only fractions of a second before that two-page spread from the first issue.

Note #2: Next issue will have more scenes from the past that occur at the same time as scenes from the first issue. I’m not sure how to document character appearances which interweave with those of a previous issue. Are they treated like flashbacks?

The way you did it here is good. (contemporary self/future self)

In the chronologies, no, they won't be treated like flashbacks. It's time travel, so it's the present tense for all involved.

Is that always the rule with time travel? I'm thinking of the ancient Skrull Emperor Dorrek. His only appearance was in Avengers #133 when some of the Avengers travelled back in time to observe the beginning of the Kree-Skrull War and that is listed as A 133-FB for Dorrek but A 133 for the time travellers.

From my understanding, yes. In theory, that should be changed to just be A 133 for Dorrek.
