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

    Good catch. My bad.

Eh, happens to all of us from time to time. Don't sweat it.

    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?

    True. "Uplifting" is good but the story was just okay. However, Marvel Comics stories for me is all about the continuity. Even moreso than DC (hence the Doomsday Clock and Heroes in Crisis disasters). So, if it's not about the shared universe experience then it would have to be a GREAT story (w/complimentary art, preferably better than) to be worth (repeatedly) investing any time and/or money. There are many other and better stories and even the untested ones might be worth sampling that reviews suggest are better than okay. Will you stick with this book?

nine times out of ten, I would be with you. One of t many, many, many, many issues I had with the New 52 was that their continuity didn't line up at all.

However, as long as they announce it a head of time, or it is absolutely clear (like Spider-man in the old Wes) I am usually fine with it.

I like seeing characters in less usual environments, that include situations. It can be a chance to really experiment, and try interesting things.

Just don't screw up and pretend that is what it was the whole time... Marvel... and DC... way too many times (I miss Gruenwald)

But, we all draw our own lines.
