Bullet Points #1-5

Post by Col_Fury » Thu Oct 05, 2017 8:48 am

BULLET POINTS #1 (January 2007)
By J. Michael Straczynski & Tommy Lee Edwards

APPEARANCES:
Earth-70105: Dr. Abraham Erskine, Wilhelm Schuller, Ben Parker, Iron Man (Steve Rogers), May Parker, Richard Parker, Mary Parker, Dr. Henry Fenwick, James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes, Peter Parker

SYNOPSIS:
December 8, 1940: Prof. Abraham Erskine is killed the day before his super-soldier experiment; one of his guards (Ben Parker) is also killed. The program is scrapped, but Steve Rogers signs up for the Iron Man program. Soon after is Ben’s funeral; his widow May mentioned they’ve only been married for a few months. His brother Richard is preparing to marry Mary. December 7, 1941: The Imperialist Japanese attack Pearl Harbor. As the war ramps up for the Americans, Steve Rogers undergoes the months-long process of his nervous system and heart being attached to the Iron Man suit. August 7, 1942: Iron Man is unveiled at Guadalcanal. Soon after, Bucky Barnes is interviewed; he’s been injured and is going home in one piece. May 8, 1945: Germany surrenders. July 16, 1945: The Manhattan Project tests a nuclear bomb. Roughly 20 years later: Rabble-rousing teen Peter Parker (who lives with his aunt) ditches school and steals a jeep with his pals. It runs out of gas, so they send Peter out to get more. He wanders around and finds himself in a military test zone just as a gamma bomb is set off…

NOTE:
The issue opens with a thesis (basically) that bullets change the course of history and shows scenes of various assassinations, ending with Abraham Erskine. This isn’t Earth-616, though, because this Erskine was killed by Wilhelm Schuller instead of Heinz Krueger (also, Ben Parker was one of Erskine’s guards in 1940). This one panel would be some other, as-yet undesignated Earth. Then, the story starts with Erskine being killed a day before the super-soldier experiment, instead of right afterward.

BULLET POINTS #2 (February 2007)
By J. Michael Straczynski & Tommy Lee Edwards

APPEARANCES:
Earth-70105: Hulk (Peter Parker), May Parker (also in fb), Ben Parker (in fb), Steve Rogers (also in fb), Lyndon Johnson (in fb), Reed Richards, Gen. Ross, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm (bts), Ben Grimm (bts)

FLASHBACK:
More bullet thesis, then a recap of issue #1. Ben tells May he loves her (1940). Steve Rogers gets the Medal of Freedom from the president (earlier today).
SYNOPSIS:
Peter wakes up in the hospital and the doctors are shocked that he’s alive. He’s picked up by his aunt. As he walks around town he’s picked on by the neighborhood bullies and Peter turns into the Hulk. As he tears up the town his aunt May sees hi and feints. The Hulk leaps away. Meanwhile, Steve Rogers tells his pal Reed Richards to leave the Iron Man project and take his rocket into space. The Hulk calms down and turns back into Peter. The military questions May about Peter and plans to wait for the teen to go home. Reed and Sue prepare to have dinner with Johnny and Ben before the big rocket test.

BULLET POINTS #3 (March 2007)

APPEARANCES:
Earth-70105: Reed Richards (also in fb), Sue Storm, Iron Man (Col. Steve Rogers, also in fb), Gen. Ross, Johnny Storm, Ben Grimm, Hulk (Peter Parker), May Parker

FLASHBACK:
Reed Richards meets Steve Rogers, as well as some recap of previous issues.
SYNOPSIS:
Gen. Ross sends Iron Man after the Hulk. When Peter visits May to say goodbye, Iron Man attacks. Hulk kills Iron Man, freaks out and leaps away. Richards’ flight explodes, due to sabotage. Later, Richards is recruited into S.H.I.E.L.D.

BULLET POINTS #4 (April 2007)
By J. Michael Straczynski & Tommy Lee Edwards

APPEARANCES:
Earth-70105: Reed Richards (also in fb), Dr. Stephen Strange, Baron Mordo, Ancient One, Dormammu, Sub-Mariner, Thor, Professor X, Daredevil, Kingpin, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Tony Stark, Col. Bucky Barnes, Dr. Janice Rose (in fb), Spider-Man (Dr. Bruce Banner, also in fb), J. Jonah Jameson (in fb), Joe Robertson (op in fb), Galactus, Silver Surfer

FLASHBACK:
More recap of previous issues. Also, Reed Richards meets Bruce Banner. He wants to study the Hulk but Richards says no, so he studies a spider that was irradiated in the gamma blast instead. It bites him and he gets spider-powers.
SYNOPSIS:
As the years pass, some characters’ lives happen as they do in most other worlds (like say, Thor, Daredevil, Professor X, etc.), but others are different (like Dr. Strange, who joins S.H.I.E.L.D. instead of going to Tibet). Tony Stark joins S.H.I.E.L.D., but is dismayed he won’t be the test subject for the new Iron Man (it’ll be Bucky instead). Reed introduces Tony to Spider-Man, but they’re interrupted when Galactus arrives to eat the planet.

Galactus leaves, and later May Parker visits the Hulk’s grave.
