iv been looking through my back issues lately being excited for divided we fall and trying to refresh my memory of events in the UU and iv realized that while this line is relatively young compared to the main streem marvel u theres still a lot of continuity errors and unnecessary retcons that urk me. so i thought it might ease my mind to post some i realized and try to find a way to smooth them over thats a plausible in continuity explanation. id love it if people post their own to because i have a feeling the few i post arnt the only ones. big or small i wanna hear them!
the fiew i have:
millars retcon of iron mans origins:
while it was a relitively simple way of doing so, by this extent millar also made ultimate human non cannon too. now i know people will hate on the whole tony being some kind o ginat brain but i personally find it a really cool change to the character that embodies what the ultimate universe is all about. i think that even though millar retconed it it would be easy enough to say that tony still has these traits and released the tv show showed in ult. avengers to pull a reverse psychology move, making it seem so ridiculous that noone would think its true. this also brings anthony stark into a conflict, but tonys father could have easaly had an afair thus producing gregory. could be why they have such a rivalry between them.
Bendis's inclusion of the 616 universes ironman armors in tonys lab:
this one really urks me, cause this means tonys 1 step away from doning a cheesy 616 armor and become a copy of his original self. the whole point of the uu is to be realistic and believable. thats why i could accept the movie armor taking over, cause it was realistic, but theres nothing realistic about most of the 616s early armor. not quite sure it needs fixing. just declair it a neat background thing and not in continuity.
