Well she's a Skrull, so she probably just assumes that that's how humans age.

Has Luke Cage ever said "Black don't crack" when he's talking about his unbreakable skin?

If you go through any given long running Marvel title and add up the time that actually passes WITHIN the issues, I'd bet that you'd be hard pressed to say even ten years have passed. Any given year of issues only accounts for days, MAYBE weeks of the characters lives.

There are year longs arcs which at a stretch might cover a day.

They need to send Franklin and Val to boarding school and never mention them again, before Luke Cage's kid is older than them.
They did that during Claremont's run on FF. It was an intergalactic boarding school too.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Usually a couple of months is the longest that an arc takes place in. Really depends on who the writer is and what the plot is...it's always hard to tell with Marvel's sliding timeline.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I figure each issue is 1-2 days, and since each episode leads directly into the next...

500 issues is 500 to 1,000 days of continuity. that's like 2.75 years at the most!

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I forget what issue or comic it was (but it was something recent) Maria Hill stated that the "Skrull invasion" happened "last year". I think she might have said it in "Uncanny X-Men #1" when Magneto is addresses them.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

You're forgetting the dead space between issues that can last for months.

And then there's the dead space of years between volumes.

It's not like there's always 12 c-list Professor Xavier wannabes simultaneously trying to rebuild/recreate the new, ultimate and definitive Doom Patrol as soon as the current Doom Patrol peters out like a wee wet fart.

Sometimes they do flat out list a time period. I think they said Osborne was in charge of the country for one full year.

What secret Empire? Obama was the President during "Secret Invasion" and "Siege" before that. I don't recall any "Secret Empire".

The Secret Empire were the badguys in a 1970s storyline where it turned out that their leader was... Nixon.. who killed himself.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

don't try to make sense of Marvel's sliding time. that way lies madness! Franklin will always be a 5-7yr old. Cassie Lang was allowed to become a teenager. Luna (Quicksilver and Crystal's daughter) is what...7 or 8 now?

Franklin's gotta be more like a 7-10 year old now though given Val has been depicted anywhere between 8-10. But yeah it will drive you mad...like it did poor EJA when he attempted to figure it out
