Recently I was asked how much of the Timely Comics era was actually part of the Marvel continuity. My reply was I guess most of it but now I'm not totally sure. What stuff is mentioned as being part of the current Marvel canon? What characters other than the obvious ones (Captain America, Namor) are still part of the 616 universe?
I'm also wondering how much of it is collected in trades. Are there collections of Adventures In Terror, Space Squadron, All-Select Comics, Venus, Blonde Phantom, Red Raven, All Western Winners, etc.?
