Greer Garson in New Avengers #35

Post by Darci » Thu Sep 19, 2013 7:52 pm

In http://www.chronologyproject.com/calendar8.php I see:
When Jigsaw questions the arrangement, Hood proves himself by taking him to the New York apartment of Greer Garson, who is anxious not to be assigned to an Initiative team in a remote state.

Greer Garson, of course, was the MGM film star (and not in the MU, AFAIK). Tigra's civilian name was Greer Nelson, nee Grant. I can see where this came from, though, because the Hood threatens Tigra's mother, Janet Garson. I don't know if this was an error or an in-joke. Something similar happened once before, in Marvel Premiere #24. In a flashback to her origin, Tigra mis-remembers her own surname (also as Garson instead of Nelson). Sometimes I wonder if Brian Michael Bendis or Tom Brevoort put "Garson" in NA#35 for just that reason?
Hope this helps!
