    So I've been catching up on WWH recently, and so far I can't complain about it. But where's it fit in with the other current Marvel stuff? The two Avengers books are both going through some pretty big changes that haven't been settled yet (avoiding spoilers here for anyone who hasn't read them yet).

    Anyone know if WWH is supposed to happen before or after the current storylines? Or should I just write this off like another Astonishing situation where Cyke has no powers except he does in every other book?

    I'm just assuming it takes place before WWH

    New Avengers is going on right before WWH. Mighty Avengers is going on a little before New Avengers, I'd estimate roughly concurrent.

    So basically the whole Skrull thing and Tony Stark turning into Ultron stuff gets solved just as WWH starts.

    it's kind of a cluster-fuck, but i figured the skrull stuff is going on AFTER world war hulk...since bendis is planning this big deal next year, it would be really wierd if it happened before this summer's event (WWH).


    here's how i think it goes...
    avengers disassembled -> house of m -> civil war -> 1st mighty avengers arc -> WWH -> current new avengers arc (that's IF hulk doesn't kill someone on the team).

    New Avengers is with Mighty Avengers, the EMP that took down the plane was from the hot Ultron.

    that's right...

    so they're both after WWH...which means bruce is going to kill no one...except himself maybe.

    i dunno. i think it's before WWH. New Avengers are hiding from the Mighty Avengers but all the heroes seem to get along together for WWH.

    Okay, just as i thought i'd worked it out it gets more confusing...
    Let's se...

    New Avengers and Mighty Avengers are most likely before WWH. The only reason i can think of that is that because Stark gave them immunity, they must've still been holed up somewhere. That means that the Skrull saga will not be finished per say, because they are side-tracked by the WWH event.

    But let's check some other books, first... When did Silent War happen? Was it before WWH? We can probably assume that, because there is no mention of a Hulk beating up Black Bolt. So that means that the status quo will return to normal...

    Having made all those assumptions, i think it's safe to assume that WWH is the current continuity.

    i think you pretty much nailed it, silent war was before WWH...as it's a continuing thing from the house of m.

    i never read the ending of silent war...until now, so if the lunar attilan is gone...then it happened after WWH and before NA/MA. right?

    i'm sure there's something i missed, go back and read my posts...i'm flipping around worse then john kerry :o

    For the sake of argument lets just say that NA/MA is going on before WWH and Silent War happens after WWH. That means that nothing really happens during WWH - everyone survives.

    What's the continuation for Silent War anyway ? They can't just leave it hanging there.

    But hold on, WWH didn't show a destroyed lunar Attilan. They just showed Black Bolt and the queen. Doesn't mean it's all still in ruins.

    Also, i seem to recall Henry Gyrich being in there somewhere, but he wasn't in the Initiative yet. So, yepp, WWH is most likely the current continuity. And if so, then what the hell happens with both NA/MA story lines? Nothing? Seriously...?

    Not really, DC's continuity at least makes sense. Marvel just throws shit around randomly without realizing how stupidly obsessive fans are.
