More Avengers photos

Post by Paul Bourcier » Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:14 pm

Having recently posted about photos as flashbacks, I'd like to propose placement for a few more photos. I've no intention of going overboard on this, but I figured if it's possible to narrow down chronological placement of a given non-generic photo, why not give it a "shot?"

In the first panel of I Am An Avenger #5/3, we see three framed photos of Avengers, left to right:

1) A shot of Yellowjacket, Black Panther, and Clint Barton as Goliath (in red costume); there may be others in the photo since we can't see the entire image, but I won't assume so. Given Goliath's costume, the photo should date to after A 66, and since Black Panther wasn't regularly in New York at this point, we'd have to place it after his return in A 73-74. Yellowjacket's gone by A 75, so that narrows things pretty well. I interpret this as a photo taken to mark T'Challa's return, so right after A 74.

2) A shot of Giant-Man, Wasp, Thor, Cap, and Iron Man. The photo was taken after Iron Man gave up his pointy face mask in TOS 54 and before Wasp abandoned her red and black costume with skirt and headpiece in TTA 58. This range is a fairly small window sometime between A 6 and 7. After looking at Avengers appearances of this period, I've intepreted this photo as having been taken during the Avengers meeting that adjourns at the beginning of JIM 105.

3) A shot of Vision and Scarlet Witch. I interpret this as a wedding photo, taken right after the ceremony in GSA 4.

So...

Doesn't the MCP have a rule about not placing photos?

Well, it has a rule about when (and when not) to place photos:
The FAQ wrote:Photos are taken on a case by case basis. A generic family photo is unplaceable, and really amounts to nothing more than a prop or a decoration, and can be ignored. On the other hand, a photo which shows a specific event which we haven't previously seen is another matter, and should be listed, and treated the same as a flashback.
