    Quote:
    My only pet peeve is this:

    If you're going to use a character, then reference that character's most recent appearance and explain any point-A-to-point-B transition logistics. For example, if the Abomination was last seen on the moon with no way to get back to Earth, then take a few panels and explain how the Abomination got back to Earth. I don't need to know what the Abomination has been doing for the last 20 years. Just tell me how he got back to Earth and I'll be satisfied.


I appreciate that as well. In comics, it is better to have a continuous line from one event to another. Continuity is illusionary in comics but only in the long run.

It is obvious for example that it was totally necessary to retcon Iron Man's origin and Warren Ellis' "new origin" has been accepted by most fans.
