one I covered while writing the FAQ thread, for whomever wants all the specifics.
And for the record, before Xavier was cloned, there was a big deal being made about how his old body was failing him. You'd be surprised what a human in their 80s can do, let alone a mutant that age... I mean, Jack La Lane alone.
In other words, concede the obvious point already.

worstblogever . . . I don't know whether to be impressed with your detailed account of Wolverine continuity, or absolutely saddened that Wolverine's continuity can be "summarized" in that many pages to begin with. I give you props for your work, but it definitely further proves the notion that Wolverine has become an absolute train-wreck of ideas. The more they continue to "reveal" about Wolverine, the less interested in the character I become.
Alternatively, they COULD freeze Charles' birth year as well...but that wouldn't work either, since that means Charles formed the X-men increasingly later in life.
The mix of real-time and the sliding timescale may eventually pose a problem for Wolverine as well. His adventures in WW2, and to an extent, his Team X days, are frozen at a specific time period...while, to my understanding, anything from Weapon X onwards is part of the sliding timescale. So the gap between, say, the end of his Team X days in 1972, and his capture by Weapon X (around 15-20 years ago, I guess) is only increasing with each passing year. Though I suppose this just means writers get even MORE opportunities to tell flashback stories surrounding Logan.
The Xavier in the Korean War stuff still hasn't been retconned. You can sit here all day with your arms crossed and keep saying "sliding timeline", but unless you slide World War II and the Korean War to the 60s and 70s, then Vietnam to the 80s... you have a simple enemy here, dude. It's called MATH. It apparently is not your friend.
The timeline doesn't need to be slid about for Xavier or Magneto, based off their cloning/deaging. Seems like it would just be as easy to explain away as "her crazy reality-warping kid, Proteus, shaved some years off her physical age and kept her looking young. If not him, Legion, while he was around Moira, who was like his adoptive mother for a time."
That aside, you're still wrong, Xavier's timeline has not been slid by Marvel. Even if you were to retcon Xavier and Juggernaut out of the Korean War and loosely to Vietnam (which some have claimed has happened with the flashbacks to Juggernaut's origin going from "mission in Korea" to "Mission in Asia" to make it generic)... there's still him treating Holocaust survivors in Israel a few years after WWII to consider. Some points can slide, but when Marvel uses actual dates, it goes out the window...
And your argument, as I've just found, is completely invalid, and sir, it is YOU who don't understand the sliding time scale. It doesn't slide until the events of Fantastic Four (vol. 1) #1. Meaning, all the stuff that happens in history before that event... the Korean War, WWII, all the stuff from Xavier, and Magneto's origin?
CAN NOT SLIDE.
From the conclusion at the end of the "Marvel Time" entry, on their own website?
You can't retcon/slide anything to make the Marvel Universe make sense. Thanks for playing.So there is no official absolute correct solution to contradict.

You're still wrong, and stubbornly defending a concept even Marvel says does not apply to either of the characters on that page. Convenient that you ignore that. As well as how the article, and I both have stated, even if you switch that war, there's still Gabrielle Haller, who's supposed to be recovering from the Holocaust, to account for.

Since you're just ignoring I'll just post this final post and let it go. Also because I don't know how much more I can simplify what I'm saying.
[QUOTE=worstblogever;15185652]It said it may have been substituted with Vietnam by some editors, and I acknowledged as much in my post.[/b]
Now English is my 2nd language but I'm pretty sure this means that his time in the Korean Wars retconned, not that it may have been subtituted.
[quote] Professor X fought in Korea in the 1970s. This is later retconned anyway.[quote]
