Uncanny Origins!

Post by Col_Fury » Wed Oct 22, 2008 7:54 am

Only two issues of Uncanny Origins(published 1996-1997) are currently in the MCP,(6 & 9) the others need to be added to the Checklist.(Issue 3 does have one page in, but it's not even for that issue's character) For reference:

UO 1 Cyclops
UO 2 Quicksilver
UO 3 Archangel
UO 4 Firelord
UO 5 Hulk
UO 6 Beast
UO 7 Venom
UO 8 Nightcrawler
UO 9 Storm
UO 10 Black Cat
UO 11 Black Knight
UO 12 Doctor Strange
UO 13 Daredevil
UO 14 Iron Fist

Are they all canon? As I understand it, it's kind of a case-by-case thing.

I have to admit that I've only closely looked at about half of these fourteen issues, but I haven't seen anything glaringly wrong. I suppose we could put the missing ones on the Checklist, and if any are found to be non-canon they can be removed and placed on the non-canon list in the FAQ.(there aren't any currently)

There's a brief debate on Uncanny Origins' canoncity in Archive 47, which also includes analyses of UO 3, 6, 8 & 9 by DHall, and 12 by SeanCurtin. DHall also posts notes about UO 1, but thinks its' non-canon (and Paul O agreed in Archive 50).

[Jeph argued for it to be "issue-by-issue" then as well :)]

I'll have to take a look at UO 1, but the others didn't seem to offer any real problems. 'Case-by-case' works for me.

i recently read UO 10 with the black cat and decided it couldn't be canon. i can't remember exactly why, but the number of problems seemed insurmountable at the time. it seemed more like an updated retelling, rather than any attempt to augment the initial black cat origin story.
