    Cap story: Guess we should just give up that this title is canon. Last issue with the time stamp around the Reed Richards origin and now this issue specifically places Cap in a 1964 setting (and "Tony" Stark by inferrence). RIDICULOUS. Arrgh! You can't have it both ways: a sliding timescale and retro-flashback adventures set in the iconic Bronze Age 1960s! Marvel is obviously misleading uninformed readers as it does on occasion to promote sales for as long as the temporal illogic turns dead-breaker for potential patrons. Sad, waste of an otherwise uplifting story about fighting for civil rights.

The 1960s were the Silver Age, not the Bronze Age.

I'm not really sure what the issue is with it not being in continuity. A good story, which you said it was, is a good story right?

And Marvel was pretty up front about this. The solicitation even said "Andrew Aydin, pens a tale of Captain America during the Civil Rights movement."

I think, and don't quote me on this, that they said they wanted to celebrate it in the time at the beginning.

Next week one story will take place in the 70s, then the 80s in May, and so on.

Two in continuities and one one per issue.

I really liked this Cap story, and liked that it didn't take an easy route.

    Spidey story: Revisiting Crusher. Amazing Spider-man #271 is a fondly remembered revisiting of the iconic throwaway character Hogan. [According to his wikia page he's had 23/13 other appearances - but has any of them been more entertaining? AND when the heck was his real name Joseph given?] So, it actually started out arrghworthy, with his hate-fueled personality, but it turned into a clever twist revealed when Doc Voodoo shows up to explain the sitch. Whew. BUT. THEN. Arrgh! It looks like they made Dr.Druid a supervillain and gave him an Revolving Door unexplained return from his troubled and odd post-death villainy on Weirdworld. Poor Avenger.

I agree 100% here. I hated it at first, then got into t by the end.

If you haven't read Tangled Web #14 (thank you internet), it was a cool story. It is about the lead up, and how Crusher loved wrestling, and was throwing everything he could into saving a failing league (or whatever).

Spider-man,essentially... you just have to read it if you haven't
