Flashback in She-Hulk Vol 3 #12

Post by Nausiated » Sat Jun 03, 2017 12:34 pm

Looking into this one. In a flashback that takes place "Years Ago", She-Hulk, Shocker, Vibro, Tigra, Monica Rambeau, Doctor Druid, Wyatt Wingfoot, and Nightwatch are involved in the disappearance of a small town in North Dakota. Trying to figure out where this fits in continuity. Here are some facts:

1) She-Hulk is wearing her purple costume with white gloves and boots.
2) Wyatt Wingfoot is present, so it could be during a time that he and Jen are dating again.
3) Monica is wearing her Captain Marvel costume. Her hair was also styled in an afro
4) Doctor Druid is still alive. He's wearing his red costume with blue cape

The only period of time all of these facts could all be correct is around the 1993-1994 publication year.

Facts:

1) She-Hulk and Wyatt were still together during the final run of Sensational She-Hulk (Which ended in 1994)
2) Monica Rambeau was wearing her original uniform during this period although her hairstyle was going through some changes (first she wore it long in Quasar, then started wearing it in dreadlocks during Starblast, therefore I think that's kind of an irrelevant point)
3) Doctor Druid wasbeing altruistic and was wearing his classic uniform, so this is prior to him taking over the Secret Defenders.

I would place these events as happening:

She-Hulk: between SENSH 60 and IH2 417 (As Jennifer was still with Wyatt at the end of that series and then they drifted apart again)
Wyatt Wingfoot: SENSH 60 and Blaze #4 (for the same reasons)
Monica Rambeau: Between CM:FYM and STARBLAST 1 since that is the only logical place you can fit her during this period.
Doctor Druid: between Q 51-FB and CA 420-BTS, because this is the closest point prior to him being forced to lead the Secret Defenders

The villains in the story are the easiest to place

Shocker: Between CA 413 and WOS 109

Vibro: Between IM 267 and W3 26

Nightwatch: WOS 106 and Nightwatch #1

We discussed this before- the implication seemed to be that all of Nightwatch's heroic appearances were fabricated by the spell:

Charles Soule said that this takes place after Druid was possessed by an "evil spirit" :

I'm not sure if he meant Ravonna (in Avengers 294-297, who wasn't really an evil spirit but a woman brought back from death by the Grandmaster but close enough) or Slorioth (in Secret Defenders 22-25).
