Avengers Annual '99 placement question

Post by JephYork » Thu Apr 24, 2014 12:16 am

Avengers Annual '99 is dated July 1999, the same month as Avengers v3 #18. However, we have it placed between Avengers v3 #12-13, six months out of sequence.

How come?

It looks like Justice doesn't have his broken leg, so it should at least occur before Avengers v3 #16, the start of the battle where he breaks it. But still, what led us to place it back so far, rather than between, say, #15-16?

Insight is appreciated! Thanks!

Here we have the Vision testing his new body (so sometime after A3 12), Wonder Man alive (after A3 11), Iron Man in armor (and so after A3 15), Justice without his cast and in his old costume (before A3 16), and Cap with his energy shield (between CA3 9 and CA3 22).

I have the annual between A3 15 and 16.

Thanks, Paul!

This is the only status quo I'm blanking on. Could you explain further?

Sorry I was so cryptic about Iron Man; I was rushing this morning before work.

Iron Man returned to active duty with the Avengers in A3 15 with a reworked armor that eliminated the problems he'd been having with it. (He was having those problems in A3 10-11, then was off the active roster in A3 12-14.) We see Iron Man back with the group in A@ '99.

Okay, that makes sense -- he wasn't on the active roster between #12-13, so it has to occur between #15-16. Check! Thanks, Paul!
