Foundationed Deep #1
This is the first in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces looking at particular odd/strange/interesting instances of retroactively connecting different comic book characters (for instance, Uncanny X-Men #268 retroactively established that Wolverine knew both Captain America and the Black Widow from World War II).
Today we look at an amusing retroactive connection between Spider-Man and Misty Knight!
In Marvel Team-Up #63 and 64 (by Chris Claremont and John Byrne), Misty Knight (and her partner, Colleen Wing) team-up with Spider-Man to help their friend, Danny Rand (AKA Iron Fist).
Spidey is curious about Misty Knight a few times in both #63 and #64…
And finally, at the end of #64, we learn where Spidey knew Misty from…
Yep, Claremont and Byrne decided that Misty Knight is the following woman from the classic Marvel Team-Up #1 (the Christmas issue with Spider-Man, Human Torch and Sandman)…
Pretty interesting decision by Claremont, huh? Byrne apparently was the one who initially noted that the woman from MTU #1 looked like Misty, so he mentioned it to Claremont who liked the idea and went with it.
