Agents of Atlas

Post by intp » Mon Mar 28, 2011 5:05 pm

I have recently started reading the Agents of Atlas series, by Jeff Parker. I was wondering if these stories are officially canon? I saw references to the original 2006 "Agents of Atlas" series in various entries (Jimmy Woo, Gorilla-Man, etc.), but no references for the subsequent "Agents of Atlas" series (like the stories collected in "Dark Reign", "Turf War", and "Agents of Atlas vs."; as well as other books like "Gorilla Man" and "Marvel Boy: The Uranian"). Are those later stories considered canon as well?

Yes, they are. The MCP just hasn't caught up to the later issues yet.

Incidentally Russ, HUMAN ROBOT II probably shouldn't have braces around WI? 9, since MENACE 11 was its first appearance.

In fact, he shouldn't have WI? listed at all, as that's now been proven to be an alternate reality story. Even Menace is questionable, since the origin story depicted there has been somewhat retconned, though perhaps not enough to push it out of 616 canon.

No, that's HUMAN ROBOT/M-11. HUMAN ROBOT II is the one from the WI? 9-verse, if you look :)

[And by any reading, MENACE 11 should be gone from the MU M-11's history - and I was the one who got it moved to the WI? 9 version - it wasn't "somewhat retconned", it was obliterated...]

Fair enough - I hadn't checked the MCP listing, so I didn't realise the non-616 Human Robot had been given his own listing. As for the retcon wiping out Menace #11 as an option for 616 Human Robot, you are probably right. I was going from memory of the two stories, rather than properly checking, which was remiss of me.
