X-Men Gold #1

Post by Paul Bourcier » Tue Nov 19, 2013 6:23 am

I have some suggestions for the placement of the stories in this comic.

First story:
Professor X
Cyclops
Storm
Colossus
Nightcrawler
Wolverine
Kitty Pryde
Rogue
Madelyne Pryor
Lilandra
Lockheed
Corsair
Hepzibah
Ch'od
Sikorsky
Logan and Mariko just split up and Rogue is still injured from UX 173. So, this story belongs between UX 173 and 174.

Second story:
Professor X
Cyclops
Marvel Girl
Iceman
Angel
Beast
Bobby is in his icy form, so this must occur after UX 8. The students are still learning the rules of using the Danger Room, so I wouldn't put it much past UX 8. So, I'd say it's everyone's next appearance after UX 8.

Third story:
Banshee
Sunfire
It's "two days" before Professor X recruits Banshee into the new X-Men. So, this should be both characters' last appearance before GSX 1. The two are shown chatting on the stairs at Xavier's School in GSX 1, and I imagine they're discussing the fact that they just met each other in Memphis.

Fourth story:
This is yet another continuity implant that ties into GSX 1. I don't have all the comics that tie into GSX 1, so I can't precisely place this relative to those. I think it's time for a review of GSX 1 and all the implants and FBs that tie in, including Gold, making sure that page/panel numbers, sequencing, etc. is correct. Does anyone who has all the necessary comics want to give this a go?

Fifth story:
This story ties into panels of X 25, with added dialog, like so:
X 25 (1:1-36:4) -- everyone listed for this comic
XMG 1/5 (1-4) -- Magneto, Professor X
X 25 (36:5) ~ XMG 1/5 (5:1) -- Rogue, Gambit, Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine
X 25 (36:6) -- Professor X, Rogue
X 25 (37:1) ~ XMG 1/5 (5:2) -- Gambit, Colossus, Rogue, Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Marvel Girl
XMG 1 (5:3) -- Gambit, Colossus, Rogue, Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Marvel Girl
M 25 (37:2-38:4) -- Gambit, Colossus, Rogue, Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Marvel Girl

Done years ago, for the Uncanny X-Men Index.

OK, but I think the page counts on the MCP include the symbolic splash page as page 1, so the numbers are one off. I'd place XMG 1/4 between the reconfigured 14:4 and 14:5.

Professor Xavier was in Europe from UX 7 to 9. Where is he in that story? If he is with the X-Men, then maybe the story should be placed between UX 9 and UX 10 instead?

Pro Wrestling (NES):
The super space-traveller Star Man wears a mask and a costume with a color palette that no human being alive would be caught dead in. With his awesome back flip kick to the face and flying head butt, he's the fan-fave.

Excellent point, Starman! So how about right after UX 9 for everyone?

What issue did the original X-Men start having red belts? It looks like UX 27. I guess we'll have to chalk that up to a coloring error or we'll have to assume this is the first time they wear them.

Does Marvel Girl have her head covering mask or the "M" shaped one? If she's wearing the "M" mask, her uniform has a "v" collar, and they're all wearing red belts- then it has to go after UX 27. If she's wearing the head covering mask with the red belt then it's just a colouring error (or they tried out the red belts for a change).

Jean has her head-covering mask in Gold. We're seeing the early outfits here, just with red belts.
