Anyway ... I just finished FF #150 and was wondering why this comic is being treated as an A and B story and not as a chapter 1 and chapter 2 type story?


For prosais creason really:

Because there are no words such as: "Part", "Chapter", "To be continued after"

And there is no obvious continuation. Story of fight with Ultron ends (There is "The End"), time passes (cause They had to clear everything and prepare the weddidng agaon) and there is another story. About the Wedding.

That's how I see it.
In my mind there is a huge difference.


That is how I saw it too. I just wanted clarification based on what I was thinking. I just really wanted to understand the rule more so that I know what else to look for while moving through the order.

And thanks for the comic lesson on Marvel Time Raist and fragsel.

But does Marvel Time even exist in the 70s? :lol:


it is arguable that Marvel Time started with the pregnancy of Franklin Richards... it took 18 months for him to be born.... he is the definitive start of Marvel Time.... many say he caused Marvel Time as one of his powers....


I agree Marvel time is connected to Franklin. I believe that too.

But it has to work retrospectively.
That's why It's not JJJ who appears in Night Raven or Howling COmmandos stories, but Old Man Jameson
That's why it is no longer Reed Richards who appreared in WWII order but his uncle (although for reading pleasure I think we still list Reed there)

The case with IT Living Colossus would not get better If one read reprint.
Story telling is so different that it would be strange reading it among 1970's stories.

I think Zombie story was an exception (based on the fact reprint was in the middle of a story)
In other cases Golden Age books belong in Golden Age. Unless reprint changes something essential. Which didn't happen here...


I thought they answered Marvel time in the series X-MEN: WORST X-MAN EVER?

3: Tales to Astonish #27 (v1)
Should this be labeled as A story?

There used to be a rule we only label stories in Main Order when we list more than one from that issue

Maybe that changed but there definitely was such rule.

Miranda says she saved the world a number of times, and when about to explain says.

"Tony Stark has been in his early 30s for about 60 years. I figured that the world needed these heroes. they were also just to cool to get rid of, to grow old and die. So I keep revising the world to suit them, and vise versa."

She goes on to say how she changed nick fury from old white guy, to the sam jackson version, and revived bucky,

Then when asked how long she has been doing this says.

"A long time. The X-Men specifically? Since the '60s. They're Always the ones in need of the most drastic makeovers. Plus, hey, I'm a mutant. I think."

Apparently in the recently concluded Ultimates series there is also an explanation.
