Like A Fool I Mixed Them – Who’s That Dude With the Jewel in His Chest?

bloodwynd7

As you all know, superhero comic books are a serial medium, and superhero continuity, in particular, is an ever-changing status quo as characters change dramatically over the years. However, “classic” storylines are often viewed on their own and not as a part of whatever continuity was current at the time the story was released. As a result, when you look back at these storylines and the issues surrounding them, there often is a bit of a disconnect between viewing these stories as “timeless” and the reality that they are very much rooted in their own particular era.

Like A Fool I Mixed Them – The Avengers in Born Again

As you all know, superhero comic books are a serial medium, and superhero continuity, in particular, is an ever-changing status quo as characters change dramatically over the years. However, “classic” storylines are often viewed on their own and not as a part of whatever continuity was current at the time the story was released.

This is the second in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces looking at interesting overlaps in comic book continuity. I figured that it would be worthwhile to show you another one right after the first to make sure you understand exactly the type of thing I’m talking about. In this piece, let’s look at Iron Man’s appearance in Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s classic “Born Again” storyline in Daredevil (spoilers ahead for Born Again if you haven’t read it!).

Like A Fool I Mixed Them – Luke Cage Attacking Spider-Man Right After Gwen Stacy Dies

As you all know, superhero comic books are a serial medium, and superhero continuity, in particular, is an ever-changing status quo as characters change dramatically over the years. However, “classic” storylines are often viewed on their own and not as a part of whatever continuity was current at the time the story was released. As a result, when you look back at these storylines and the issues surrounding them, there often is a bit of a disconnect between viewing these stories as “timeless” and the reality that they are very much rooted in their own particular era.

So this is the first in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces looking at interesting overlaps in comic book continuity, beginning with the issue of Amazing Spider-Man directly following the two-part “Death of Gwen Stacy.”
