Noah's Ark

Post by wolframbane » Tue Apr 05, 2016 4:27 am

Here is my analysis of Noah and his family in the Marvel Universe. Note that in Eternals #2-FB, it was implied that the vessel seen in that story was Noah's Ark, and that Ikaris was mistaken as the dove that led them to dry land. However, All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #4 reveals that this was actually the Eternal Utnapishtim, who later appeared circa 3000 BC in Captain America Annual #11. But Noah did actually exist in the MU, as revealed in Ghost Rider Index entry for Ghost Rider v6 #33. Ghost Rider Index also implies the Biblical Great Flood was the Great Cataclysm circa 18,000 BC, with "the earliest known event which might have formed the basis for the mythical Great Flood is the Great Cataclysm."

BIBLE TALES FOR YOUNG FOLKS #1/2 (1-3:5)
Characters: Yahweh (God of Abraham, the Creator, appears as a hand), Noah (descendant of Adam/K'ad-Mon of the Fallen Stars), Shem, Ham, Japheth (Noah's three sons), Naameh/Emzara (Noah's wife), Sedeqetelebab (Shem's wife), 'Adataneses (Japheths's wife), Na'eltama'uk (Ham's wife, BTS)
Synopsis: Yahweh tells Noah to construct an Ark, as he intends to cause a great flood to purge evil from the world. Noah and his family construct an Ark, which is soon populated by animals. As the rains and flood starts, Noah's family sails on the Ark during the deluge.
Notes: The God of Abraham is also called the Creator in Strange Tales v4 #2, and often referred to as Yahweh in the handbooks. The wives of Noah and his sons were not given in the Bible, but are mentioned in various other sources. I have chosen to use the names from the Book of Jubilees.

Luke Vanhorn gave me a tip about other appearances of Noah. I managed to locate two of them, which I have placed into the chronologies above..

ASTONISHING #49/5
Characters: Noah, Naameh
Synopsis: In 1956, Hurricane Tessie causes a dam to break and threatens the Children's Zoo, but Noah and his wife and their animals remain safe on their Ark, just like "the other time."

JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #55/4
Characters: Noah
Synopsis: In the desert town of San Pueres, an unending rainstorm occurs, as Sam realizes that his neighbor building a boat is named Noah.
