Avengers Vol. 3 #21: Does this count as a flashback?

Post by Kevin W. » Sat Apr 09, 2011 3:12 pm

Ultron explains his evil scheme in Av Vol. 3 #21, and we see a brief flashback to Hank Pym working on "hive technology" (Hank's working on machinery while wearing an insect like helmet). The Editor's Note says "as shown in Av Vol. 3 #13-15".

I checked those issues, and I don't see this exact scene shown. In #13, Hank's in his lab, but is talking to the Scarlet Witch on a monitor screen. In Av #14, he's in his lab, but he's being questioned by a Tracy Spencer. And I don't believe we even see him in Av #15. So we don't ever see him working on machinery in his lab. Thus, is the flashback in #21 a new scene? Or a "generic flashback" that can't be placed? It's not listed as a new flashback in Hank's MCP entry.

If it is a new flashback, I propose placement in his MCP chronology as follows:


A3 14
*A3 21-FB
A3 17

Sound good?
