Hulk @17/2 placement

Post by tlynch » Wed Sep 14, 2011 4:40 pm

Hi all,

There's a discrepancy in the listings for Hulk vs. his supporting cast.

Hulk's chronology as written has:
======
H@ 17
H@ 17/2
SENTRY/SM-FB
H2 383
======

However, Betty Banner, Rick Jones, and Marlo Chandler Jones' chronologies all have H@ 17/2 happening after H2 387 -- and the events within the books bear that out, as the annual takes place after Betty's rejected the offer to live at the Pantheon and turned into a blonde.

I would instead put in:

======
H2 386
H2 387
H@ 17
H@ 17/2
Q 28-FB
H2 388
======

(I don't really know about the first story in the annual, but it seems almost completely modular.)

Thoughts?

Yes, you're right. Bigger picture -- H@ 17/2 is part of the Subterranean Wars crossover, and H2 383-385 tie into Infinity Gauntlet. Infinity Gauntlet occurs after Subterranean Wars, so H@ 17/2 must occur sometime after H2 385. H@ 17 may as well be placed just before H@ 17/2, and bringing Hulk's chronology in line with those of his supporting characters makes sense.

Thanks for pointing this out.
Paul B.
