Christopher, you do make an excellent point about the chronology of the story. Hopefully there will be a great way to still tell this story without making people confused over the telling of the story.
I agree that the chronology will be challenging but I'm curious to see what Busiek can do with it. 70s and 80s Marvel is my favourite so I don't think I'll be able to pass it up, even if I have to get my Mom to go to the store in Ottawa and mail it to me in Romania!

I've been a big fan of Busiek projects like Astro City and Marvels, and because of that I've always been surprised to find his regular superhero work so incredibly boring.

You should read Superman: Secret Identity, written by Busiek and drawn by Stuart Immonen. It's an Elseworlds story about a young man named Clark Kent, who's grown up basically in our world, with the misfortune of having the same name as a classic comic book character. The story's about what happens when he suddenly develops super-powers, and it's one of the best Superman stories ever, in my opinion at least.
