Free Comic Book Day

Post by Paul Bourcier » Sun May 02, 2010 5:36 pm

So, what's the word on the canonicity of Marvel's two Free Comic Book Day books, Iron Man/Nova and Iron Man/Thor? The former strikes me as a Marvel Adventures-type saga. The latter appears to be post-Siege on Earth-616.

I've learned that Spider-Man/Supernova is an "all ages" comic, and thus not canonical. ron Man/Thor, on the other hand, is a story set in the current Heroic Age (in it, Stark's "a little financially embarassed," which is consistent with his current status). It probably occurs after Stark's financial status is divulged in IM5 25. This story shows that despite Thor's generous offer to Stark in IM5 25, Thor's and Iron Man's relationship is still a little guarded.

About that scene... it obviously takes place a while after Siege, but is played as the first time Thor has properly talked to this "new" Stark. And yet, there's the Avengers Prime (IM/Thor/SR) mini to come, which is meant to take place right on the heels of the Siege mini itself (with Stark still in the old armour Jarvis sent him during Siege). Wondering how - or if - they'll fit.
