Jack O`Lantern II

Post by Drax » Tue Dec 02, 2014 10:51 am

According to the All-New OHOTMU #6 entry for Mad Jack, Jack O'Lantern II - Terry "Maguire" Beck should instead be Jack O'Lantern II - Daniel Berkhart, with Maguire first on-panel appearance being in Mysterio Manifesto #1 (she appears behind the scene every time Maguire (Jack O'Lantern's cat) appears, as this is their way of communicating.
Berkhart adopted the costumed identity of Jack O'Lantern (previously used by Jason Macendale before becoming the Hobgoblin), a.k.a. Mad Jack, to pursue his personal vendetta against J. Jonah Jameson for abandoning him years ago.
[...]
Maguire [Beck] joined force with Berkhart to hone her craft, usually remaining behind the scenes and using her computer technology to assist Berkhart, communicating with him via a radio transmitter built into a robotic cat.
[...]
Upon learning of Quentin's suicide, Berkhart again became Mysterio and gave his Jack O'Lantern costume to Maguire, who became the new Mad Jack...
These appearances by Jack O'Lantern II - Daniel Berkhart should be between ASM 142 (when he is sent to jail) and ASM2 12/2 (when he retakes the Mysterio identity.

Thanks, I'll be trying to help as much as I can.

Any thoughts on my suggestion/correction?

First, we currently have S-H2 30 in Jack O' Lantern II's chronology. S-H2 30 came out YEARS before this Jack O' Lantern's first appearance in Spectacular #241, and while S-H2 30 involves time travel, I really don't think the character was pulled from the future. S-H2 30 should be removed from Jack O' Lantern II's chronology and be added to Jack O' Lantern (Macendale)'s chronology. It doesn't really matter where; it's time travel. :)

With that out of the way, you're right. The handbook makes it clear which character is which. Mysterio Manifesto #3 does as well.

While the second Jack O' Lantern was a Jack O' Lantern, he went by "Mad Jack" to set himself apart from the previous Jack O' Lantern (and was the first Mad Jack).

How do these changes look?

Almost perfect.

Except the first Maguire Beck behind the scenes appearance is in PPTSS 243 instead of PPTSS 242.
