Does Subterranean Wars Take Place Before or After IG?

We seem to have placed the Subterranean Wars Annual Crossover inconsistently with Infinity Gauntlet. H@ 17/2 is placed after H2 385. H2 383-385 are the Infinity Gauntlet crossover issues. The problem is that Quasar is wearing the costume he had in Q 18-25 in the Subterranean Wars. He gets his new costume in Q 25, and that's before Infinity Gauntlet. I don't have H2 383 in front of me- I understand that judging from Rick's and Betty's relationship with Bruce and knowledge of the Pantheon, H@ 17/2 has to take place after H2 383. So we've got a situation where if we go by Rick and Betty, Subterranean Wars goes after Infinity Gauntlet and if we go by Quasar Subterranean Wars goes before Infinity Gauntlet.

Quasar gets a new suit in Q 25, then wears his old costume during Infinity Gauntlet, and then in a later issue of his book he realizes he was accidentally wearing his old suit for a while (to cover for the mistake in IG). In theory, he could have been wearing his old suit during the Annual crossover around the same time, as long as e doesn't make any appearances in his new suit in the middle.

Can anyone check the Hulk issues to see if the Annual has to happen there for Rick and Betty?

OK, the Supermegamonkey website has posted reviews of both Hulk 383 and Hulk Annual 17:
http://www.supermegamonkey.net/chronoco ... _383.shtml
http://www.supermegamonkey.net/chronoco ... l_17.shtml
The issues seem to be that Betty dies her hair blonde in Hulk 383, and she's blonde in Hulk Annual 17, Bruce realizes that Betty dislikes the new him in Hulk 383 and there's tension between them as a result in Hulk Annual 17, and Betty gets a new job in Hulk 384 (she had previously been a nun-in-training) and she receives her first paycheck in Hulk Annual 17.
