SMU 13 and the formation of Sharpe, Nelson & Murdock

Post by lettsmonster » Mon Dec 22, 2014 9:38 pm

Hello all. I am having an issue with the placement of SMU 13 in both the DD and Misty Knight chronologies, mainly because of the timeline of the law firm of Sharpe, Nelson & Murdock. This partnership between Rosalind Shape, Foggy Nelson, and Matt Murdock was not formed until the final pages of DD 354. Misty Knight did not meet Rosalind Sharpe and Matt Murdock until DD 356.

However, in both the DD and Misty Knight chronologies, SMU 13 is placed well before DD 354 and 356. Yet in the issue, Colleen Wing mentions the firm by name, mentions the fact that Misty Knight is doing work for the firm, and the DD cameo in this issue shows Matt Murdock walking past Misty Knight in the offices of Sharpe, Nelson & Murdock.

Two side notes as well:

One, Ben Reilly appears in both DD 354 and SMU 13 as well. However, in his chronology, DD 354 occurs well before SMU 13, which I feel is the correct timeline.

Two, the chronology of Colleen Wing may be also be affected by a movement in the DD and Misty Knight chronologies, based on the IF 2 miniseries appearances by Misty Knight and Colleen Wing.

Thanks for listening!

Good catch, lettsmonster.

Now we need to determine where SMU 13 needs to be moved in Daredevil's chronology...somewhere in this range:

DD 358 (14:3 - 22)
A '99-FB
TM/U 1
DD:R 1
DD:R 2
DD:R 3
DD:R 4
DD:R 5
DD:R 6 (2)-FB
DC/M:AA 2
V:OT 1
V:OT 2
V:OT 3
S-M 74
