ASM/MTU correction?

Post by tlynch » Wed Jul 02, 2008 9:32 am

Hi all,

The listing for Spider-Man currently reads:
ASM 226
M/TU 115
M/TU 116
PPTSS 65
SS3 14-FB
M/GN 1
CA 265
CA 266
ASM 227
However, I think there are a couple of problems there.

1) MTU 116 references ASM 227 as having already happened. (It also mentions Defenders 68, which isn't on Spidey's listing at all -- I don't have that issue, so can't check.)

2) ASM 227 has several indications that it's the day after 226: the headline on the Daily Bugle mentions the events of 226, and Black Cat says that she last saw Spider-Man only "hours" ago.

As such, I think 226 and 227 should be back-to-back. That would change things to:

ASM 226
ASM 227
M/TU 115
M/TU 116
PPTSS 65
SS3 14-FB
M/GN 1
CA 265
CA 266

PPTSS 65 has no real external references and is thus modular; I don't have easy access to the last four items, but maybe someone else could check that?

DEF 68 occurred long before M/TU 116 and didn't feature Spidey.

Your conclusion about the placement of ASM 227 relative to ASM 226 makes sense to me, and I checked my copy of M/TU 116 to discover that, indeed, ASM 227 is noted in an editor's note as having already occurred. Thanks!

I guessed as much. Since DEF 61 is in the chronology, I wonder if that's what they meant. (The footnote in M/TU 116 references Spidey helping the Defenders fight Lunatik -- would 61 match that?)

As for the rest ... happy to help!

Well, Lunatik's chronology (wait, wasn't it Lunat!k?) includes #61, but not #68.

Yes indeed.
