Re: Continuity Nazis: Your own personal canon.

Marvel (Specifically, Tom Defalco, who wrote some good Spider-Mans but was sort of ill-suited for the FF) actually retconned the whole Alicia Masters/Human Torch thing. Turned out she was a Skrull (The real Alicia Masters returned one issue after the reveal). She's even involved in SECRET INVASION. As for the real Alicia, she has an on-again, off-again relationship with the Thing still.

Fantastic Four: Franklin and Valeria's ages are more consistent and don't make me feel like Peter Parker and Bobby Drake should be fifty.
Power Pack : Franklin and Valeria travel with the Powers to Disneyland. There Julie discovers a Skrull who tried to replace her, but got messed up with the Hollywood lifestyle, aged forward, started going to college and really thinks she is Julie Power. Alex spends a year's salary from odd jobs buying his sibs the best souvenirs, to make up for being a creepy 'unwanted toucher' when he stole their powers in New Warriors.

Werewolf By Night : Jack slowly reveals to his 'niece', the Vampire By Night, that she is in fact a brainwashed Lissa Russell, his sister, who is way too young to have an adult daughter, since she would have given birth when Peter Parker was in grade school, and Reed was only on his fifth degree.

I will one-up that. Destiny is Nightcrawler's mother, and Mystique is his father, as was the original plan.

Re: Continuity Nazis: Your own personal canon.

Marvel: It all began with the Fantastic Four in 1961 (with retroactive history in place, as occasionally dramatized). At the stroke of midnight, New Year's Eve 1977, the Marvel Universe split in two: The Normal Universe and the Corrupt Universe. Sadly, we have only been privy to the goings on of the Corrupt Universe. But in the Normal Universe, things have gone along as they should. The characters we know are now middle-aged to elderly (except for those who are long-lived or immortal) and have lived good lives. Some of the children of the superheroes have grown up to take over defending the Earth and the Universe, and have been joined by new heroes. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing the details, but someday I hope to find the portal and catch up on thirty years of back issues.

DC: It's still the Silver Age. It will always be the Silver Age.

Franklin and who? Reed and Sue only have one child.

Wolverine's origin remains unknown.

Wally West is and ever shall be Kid Flash. Barry remains the Flash.

Captain Marvel is a black chick.

The Avengers consist of Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Wonder Man, Beast, Vision, Scarlet Witch, occassionally Hercules, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Hank Pym and Janet.

SHIELD stands for Strategic Headquarters International Espionage Law Enforcement Division.

Nick Fury is a white guy who served in WWII with Dum Dum, Gabe, etc.

Reed and Ben served in WWII. Did I mention Sue is NOT a scientist?

Re: Continuity Nazis: Your own personal canon.

Marvel continuity: The MU as a whole ended ~the time of Thunderbolts 75 (?) when the book became "Metahuman Fight Club" This was also about the time Jemas and Quesieda seriously started fucking around with Marvel to make it "edgier" and "more relevant".

The only exception is "Spider-Girl"...who has survived all attempts by Marvel Editorial to assassinate her...

DC Continuity: I tend to favor the "Timm-verse" for my DC...as for the comics, there's been to much BS happening (like what happened to Superboy) for me to give much of a rat's ass these days. I lost my interest in DC when they canned "Young Justice" just so they could steal some of the characters for the latest incarnation of the Titans.

Re: Continuity Nazis: Your own personal canon.

In comics, I've come to favor history over continuity. I'll enjoy back issues or reprints of whatever comics I like, without regard to what the last umpteen creative teams have wrought, or whether or not they're considered to have happened in whatever passes for the current "continuity".

Not to pick on anyone, because I honestly can't remember who it was, but I remember a poster saying that he wasn't going to see Iron Man because of how Civil War had tarnished the character (pardon the unintended double entendre). That's just madness--the character's been around in the comics for 45 years, and the movie is a fresh new take on the character that takes place in a new continuity. The controversial choices of one group of umpteenth-generation hacks shouldn't affect your enjoyment of everyone else's contributions to the character.

My interest in Marvel drops off substantially about the time of Secret Wars. My interest in DC goes into the mid-to-late-90s. I liked the intention behind the Crisis, but a lack of central editorial control caused post-Crisis DC continuity to become an incomprehensible mess.

Re: Continuity Nazis: Your own personal canon.

my Marvel comics canon is pretty much the mainstream one... but, until I decide otherwise, One More Day/Brand New Day are all taking place within a supercompressed period of time (between their heartbeats or something like that), and the arc will end with Peter, MJ and May all back in that hospital room just as May passes on... and MJ will shortly thereafter become preggers again.

oh, and that Austen arc with Nightcrawler's devil dad? fucking retarded. my canon on that goes like

Nightcrawler wrote:
...he said he was the devil. I've met several devils, and have never believed anything any of them have said.
oh, and Storm and Yukio are totally lovers.

You object to Sue having an actual purpose on the mission?

At Marvel, I wouldn't have done the M-Day or One More Day stories.

At DC, all of the stuff done with Wonder Woman from around the time Johns got his grubby mitts on her overall editorial direction up until Simone took over would not have happened; no worthless false identity, most of all.

Never heard of her. Franklin was their only child for decades. For me, everything froze in 1986.

I object to this absurd revisionism. She wasn't a scientist, any more than Lois Lane was. Should Lois Lane suddenly be a nuclear physicist?
