More Misc. Timely Stuff

Post by Col_Fury » Fri Jan 16, 2009 2:39 am

Specifically, Captain America Comics! I finally had a chance to crack open the Golden Age Captain America Masterworks and compare it to the old trade paperbacks, and here are the missing stuff/discrepancies. Of course, there could be more discrepancies found when volume three is released next week. Masterworks volume 2 only goes up to issue 8, where the old trades went up to issue 10, and volume three will go up to issue 12.

As for Hurricane and Pluto, they were later revealed to be Makkari and Kro, respectively. Also, I’m not taking ANY stock in any of their aliases used in any of these appearances. They’re obviously names they came up with on the fly, and not actual aliases, with the possible exception of “Harry Kane”, if only because he used that one more than once. Also, "Mike Cury" is very close to "Mike Curry", so there you go.

I don't know if it really matters, but Captain America Comics 3/5 is a true story from history (well, it may be a legend, but most historians accept it as true). You can find it within the context of Histiaeus's (a more common spelling of Istiaeus) life here: http://messagenet.com/myths/ppt/Histiaeus_1.html and http://www.bambooweb.com/articles/h/i/H ... letus.html

Apparently Harry Kane was one of those popular names used in Timely Comics.

Besides being an alias of Makkari/Hurricane, it was also the name of Hurricane (Harry Kane), super-fast criminal of the 1870s from Two-Gun Kid #70, and Dr. Harry Kane, husband of heroine Spider-Queen (Shannon Kane) from Eagle #2.
