Morgan Le Fay in DA 1-4

Post by robfj » Thu Apr 06, 2017 6:29 pm

The initial problem I noticed with Morgan Le Fay's chronology was that DA 2-FB is in twice. But that led me to question where DA 1-4 as a whole fitted in. And for that I had to understand the whole of her chronology. Which seems neatly divided up into sections I've separated out below:-

LE FEY, MORGAN
---- the early stuff is set in the Arthurian era
NSUB 62 (10:2 - 11:4)-FB
NSUB 62 (12:4 - 13:3)-FB
BK2 1-FB
ASM@ 22/3 (5:2)-FB
A 241 (17:2 - 17:3)-FB
A 187 (10:3)-FB
ASM@ 22/3 (5:4)-FB
A 187 (10:4 - 10:5)-FB
ASM@ 22/3 (5:6 - 6:1)-FB
A 241 (17:5 - 17:6)-FB
T@ 17/4-FB
BK2 2 (6:3)-FB
IM 209 (1 - 4:3)-FB

SH2 21-FB
--- above here Morgan is in the present day
--- below here is in question
DA 1
DA 2-FB
DA 1-FB
DA 2
DA 3
DA 4
NA 53

The simplest solution seems to be to move the whole of the DA 1 ... DA 4 sequence to where the other DA 2-FB is at the end of the Arthurian section. Her modern day app in DA 1-4 happens by time travel from then.

NA 53 can stay where it is. In the present day Morgan is 1 of the people considered by the Eye Of Agamotto to be the next Sorcerer Supreme.

But there is also 1 more change in that the non-FB part of DA 1 is the start of the present-day battle carrying on into DA 2-4. As such it should be preceded by the 2 FB's:- DA 2-FB Morgan goes to kill Doom as a child but decides to kill him as a man instead. DA 1-FB she searches his future for a time to strike.


But the whole thing is not a perfect solution for 2 reasons:-

If she could travel to the future in body why did she only travel in spirit in the next section? And why did she have to be reincarnated to get here in the section after that? (Moreover in the BK2 series at the end of the 'spirit' section she's actually operating from the Netherworld trying to manifest on present Earth.)

Also her next (as yet unlisted) appearance in Fearless Defenders #12 throws a spanner in the whole works. Morgan is brought to present-day Earth, after which she makes apps in Avengers World, Weirdworld and some other places. I don't believe the issue says where Morgan has been brought from, but Marvel Wiki says she has been rescued from her cauldron where Dr Doom trapped her. This sort-of corresponds to the end of DA 4 where Doom sends her via the cauldron to prehistoric times. And it makes sense as a link because DA 4 is Morgan's last previous published app, given that Marvel Wiki doesn't list Morgan in NA 53.

But of course in my solution DA 4 is far from Morgan's last previous chronological app. And, with or without NA 53, she was happily already in the present.


Still for what it's worth, my proposal is:-
LE FEY, MORGAN
....
IM:LOD 2-FB-FB
IM:LOD 1-FB-BTS
IM:LOD 2-FB
MA 9
MA 11
(DA 2-FB **** deleted)
[FLSSDEF 4AU-FB]
DA 2-FB } ****
DA 1-FB } moved
DA 1 } from
DA 2 } before
DA 3 } NA 53
DA 4 } ****
{SW 2}
SW 5
....
MYSARC:BK
MYSARC:BK /3
MYSARC:SGRIMM /3
SH2 21-FB
NA 53

Note that I put the DA stuff after FLSSDEF 4AU-FB. In MA 9&11 Doom is Morgan's lover. In FLSSDEF 4AU-FB she has baby Caroline and sends her to the future. In DA 1-4 she's angry that Doom never returned and then gets exiled to prehistory.

Also note that Morgan's body died in the past in SW 50.
