Excalibur in Q 54

Post by michel » Sun Jun 26, 2011 11:39 am

I don't know if this has already been adressed, I couldn't find any thread with the search engine.

Nightcrawler, Meggan and Phoenix make a cameo appearance in Q 54, part 2 of the Starblast crossover. The MCP places it in between pages 11 and 12 of XCAL 66.

That's before Fatal Attractions (XCAL 71). The problem is that Professor X and Marvel Girl appear in STARBLAST 1 after the Bloodties crossover, which is just after Fatal Attractions. Avengers appearances in the Starblast crossover are also after Bloodties. And it would be complicated to push Q 54 later in Excalibur's chronologies : Meggan is comatose after XCAL 70 (so before Fatal Attractions), she comes back in a altered state in XCAL 73, takes her normal appearance in XCAL 75. But in XCAL 75, Rachel disappears for a long time.

So, should Q 54 be shoe-horned into XCAL 75, or should we put the Starblast crossover earlier for the characters who have it after Bloodties ?

Like I explained in my earlier post, the Starblast crossover can't be moved before X 25 because of Reed's appearance in X 25. The simplest explanation is that Meggan recovered and had a relapse.

Sorry I didn't remember, Michael. I was working on the period before IC at this time.

That, or the Q 54 cameo could be put in between pages of XCAL 75, after Meggan gets her normal appearance back and before Rachel disappears. Nightcrawler's costume is wrong, but it could be an artistic error.

If we want to move Q 54 to in between pages of XCAL 75, then we would have to move all the Starblast appearances to after Scott and Jean's wedding in X 30, since XCAL 75 takes place after X 30. I'm not sure what the ramifications of that would be, especially since Thor's madness in Blood and Thunder is explicitly referenced by Warlock in Q 54.

There's indeed a gap in between XCAL 74 and 75 where the wedding happens in Nightcrawler's chronology. So why don't put Q 54 in between XCAL 74 and the wedding ?
