Original Sin # 5. Interesting stuff but I'm having a real hard time jivving this with everything we learned in Hickman's SHIELD series. You even have Howard Stark in it, but I can't tell if it's a reference to Hickman-SHIELD or a continuity error... I just wish it had been more overt.

Also, I would like for Hickman to finish that damn series one day!
i was thinking the same thing. Fury also lost his eye in WWII due to an exploding grenade. but in the latest Original Sin he still has both eyes in the 50s flashback. unless the one who lost the eye was an LMD?

i fee like issue #5 caused more continuity problems than anything here lately. makes me wonder how well Aaron is going to weave Angela into the Thor mythos.
Fury's eye was injured in WWII, but he didn't totally loose the sight in that eye until later.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Which continuity?

Ennis choreographed a really graphic splash page showing how Strucker was ultimately responsible about 5 years ago.

No idea. Didn't read the GN in question. Ennis probably doesn't have a clue about Fury's past.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Ennis did a couple 6 issue miniseries called Sergeant Fury that were fun.

A modern update to origins of a character most people haven't read entirely.

Graphic violence, course language and an encyclopaedic knowledge of 1940s era weapons and munitions.

Nick Fury:
Fury Peacemaker is the one I'm thinking of.

Nick lost his eye in issue 6.

Modern updates are nice, but we all know that they are quickly forgotten, and the original work still is the seminal reference always, but that's by no means a reason to turn your nose up at a fun read.



(click on jpg to make large enough to read.)

Wow.

That is not the image in my minds eye.

It's so much less like a John Woo movie.

Where are the ####ing doves!?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Can you imagine someone travelling through time to get Captain America in the mid 1970s, to save the day, but they accidentally collect Roscoe Simmons? The replacement captain America after Steve got bummed about corruption in the White House.... Nixon is the leader of a terrorist organization called the Secret Empire which was writer Steve Englehart poking fun at Watergate.

Sliding continuity/Marvel Time... Roger's disillusion with the Presidency that lead to the creation of the Nomad persona, is now probably a story about about George Bush II's White House and No longer Nixon's White House, becuase Steve was still sleeping in ice when Nixon was President.

George W Bush, POTUS, was also the criminal mastermind behind the terrorist organization, The Secret Empire?

Wow.

You think you know a guy.

Roscoe was Cap for like five minutes or however long it took the Skull to kill him.

The Doesn't work.

The Penguin is DC, and Secret Empire is Marvel.

yeah. not sure if you guys have been reading Cap or not, but the super soldier serum was recently drained from his body. people are speculating, mostly due to an Avengers cover, that Falcon will take over as Captain America.

I'm guessing he's referring to Hickman's Avengers...and the "8 Months Later* arc that leads into next year's "Time Runs Out".

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

1. In the early nineties, Steve was caught in the edge of an exploding drug lab. The designer drug attached to the Supersoldier Serum and they eventually had to drain him of all his blood and replace it with regular blood from the blood bank, and he was bogstandard human for a couple months until the formula began to regenerate... yup. Been there. Done that. It doesn't last.

2. In 1986, after Cap Quit because he would not follow orders from the Commission on Superhuman Activities, there was an entire issue where they went through names and polaroids of the contenders... Sam's name came up as a possible replacement, and I think the quote was something like "It's 1986, but I don't think that the American people are ready for a black Captain America." ...And remember relativity, when whoever said that (it was probably Henry Peter Gyrich) they thought that 1986 was like living in the distant Future compared to the racist backward hell they grew up in.
