Snark Free No Prize Game #1

Let's see some help here, people!

Just tell us some Marvel continuity gaffes that you saw in the past year or so, and if we use your pick (and let's be honest, odds are, we will...we don't have a lot to choose from here...hehe), you will receive via the United States Postal Service an Official Snark Free No-Prize in the mail!!

Anyhow, I guess we'll have to go with some ones I've come up with on my own....

Brian C. writes in to ask, "In New Avengers #2, Luke Cage tells Captain America 'groups and teams, it never even occured to me to bother with it,' but Luke Cage has been a member of the Defenders, the Fantastic Four AND the Heroes For Hire! What a goof!"

It might appear that way, Brian, but really, look at the history.

The Defenders were specifically a NON-team team. They were basically just people who hung out together, ESPECIALLY the peripheral members like Luke.

As for the Fantastic Four, he was PAID to be their replacement for the Thing.

And finally, Heroes for Hire...as you might recall, Luke only joined the team as a spy for the Master of the World (but really to work as a double agent), so in none of the above examples did he ever really go into the situation with an eye towards joining a team or group.

B. Cronin asks, "What was up with Wolverine chaperoning the dance in New X-Men #14 when just the PREVIOUS issue he murdered one of the students' teachers!! What a goof!"

It may sound bad, Mr. Cronin, but as New X-Men writer, Nunzio DeFilippis explains, "
However, if we figure he's not at the actual dance (there is a short hairy guy there, but we can assume that's just a short hairy student), we can say he's helping set up the dance as a sort of pennance, but is doing so with no students around, and is smarter than to show his face at the actual dance."

Works for me!

Okay, now everyone else send us continuity errors!!!

I guess it's just hard to think about them without getting snarky. :)

But that's the whole point of the No Prize game!

They suggest stuff that SOUNDS like it WOULD be snarky, and we un-snarkily explain why the mistakes are not, in fact, actual mistakes!!!

Fun for the whole family!!!
