Alpha Flight v2 #9 / Uncanny X-Men #355 -- the insanely detailed combination rundown!


Posted by Jeph! on August 20, 2003 at 01:38:41:

Well, folks, I went over my panel-by-panel map of AFv2 #9 and UX #355 and made a few tweaks, streamlines, and changes. Then I listed everyone who appears in each segment, and deduced their correct individual MCP listings. As expected, they're around three times as long as the ones currently on the MCP -- which is why I still think it would just be easier to post "AF2 9 ~ UX 355" once in everyone's chronology, and hyperlink it to a page with my map.

Notes before I start:

- Dr. Horatio Huxley, Nightcrawler, and Martha Stone are not, by my understanding, "BTS". Their voices are clearly heard on-panel -- and in Huxley's case, he's standing on the other side of an on-panel closed door. Don't these qualify as actual APPEARANCES? I'd always thought BTS listings were reserved for characters who are literally "BEHIND the scenes" -- they're not SEEN or HEARD but they still affect the story (IE, a mysterious force bolt from off-panel).


- As stated before, there is a FB in AFv2 #9, dealing with a repressed memory from Murmur II's childhood of being locked in a room full of bugs. (AFv2 #5, by the way, shows Flex's memories of being similarly frightened at the same orphanage, so Murmur's memory is likely a real event.)


- Also, a few notes on my entries below: I know it's not standard MCP policy, but some entries look like this:

(AFv2 #9) ~ UX #355

This indicates that although the AFv2 and UX panels had substantially the same scene and dialogue, slightly more information was present in the UX panel -- more dialogue, generally. I don't know how we'd present that on the MCP -- lop off the lesser entry and present it as just "UX #355", or remove the parentheses and claim the scenes are "equal enough" -- or, heck, leave them as is! -- but I left them in below, for Russ to do with as he decides.


Also, I know that when a character is present in two scenes of a single issue, ie:

UX #355 p.5 panel 5 (visual and wb 4)
UX #355 p.6 panel 2

even though we're skipping a bit (p.6 panel 1) where the character ISN'T present, it still gets boiled down to just:

UX #355

but, if a character is present in two consecutive overlapping scenes that still skip a bit, ie:

AFv2 #9 p.8 panel 1 ~ UX #355 p.7 panel 7
AFv2 #9 p.8 panel 3 (visual and SFX) ~ UX #355 p.8 panel 1

do we keep the scene overlaps distinct, boiling it down to:

AFv2 #9 ~ UX #355
AFv2 #9 ~ UX #355

or do we take it one step farther, and combine them into one entry for both scenes?

AFv2 #9 ~ UX #355

I've left them separate below -- again, if Russ wishes to consolidate them, feel free -- but it's not going to save him that much overall space. :-)

Enjoy...

Here's my revised map of the issues' interaction, complete with character appearance lists for each distinct segment that I've isolated.

General panel-by-panel "BTS" notations would be fruitless, as Alpha Flight and Wolverine are brawling in a confined area for the entire issue, so of COURSE any Alphan not shown in a panel is BTS. Here I'm only using BTS notations if two panels show the same SCENE, but characters are missing from one version of that scene (or if, for example, we see the AF jet – clearly all the AF members are BTS inside the jet).


UX #355 p.1
This page doesn't HAVE to go first, but placing it here doesn't break up the action in the opening pages of AFv2 #9.
Nightcrawler, Margaret Stone, Phoenix (all on phone)

AFv2 #9 pp.1-2, p.3 panel 1
As Clarke watches from Dept. H, Alpha Flight fly down the highway after Wolverine's bike. A slight overlap occurs between pp.1-2, as Clarke's monitor on p.1 broadcasts Sasquatch's dialogue from p.2 panel 1 wb 1 – however, there's really no need for a detailed notation on it, as it's two concurrent panels from the same issue.
General Clarke, Flex, Guardian, Manbot, Murmur, Puck, Radius, Sasquatch, Vindicator, Wolverine, Sauron

UX #355 p.2, p.3 panel 1
Wolvie, carting Sauron, drives down the highway.

AFv2 #9 p.3 panel 4
The jet swoops over Wolvie's head and he loses his balance…
Wolverine, Sauron, (Flex, Guardian, Manbot, Murmur, Puck, Radius, Sasquatch, Vindicator – all BTS)

UX #355 p.3 panels 4-6
…and Sauron falls off the bike, followed by Wolvie.
Wolverine, Sauron, (Flex, Guardian, Manbot, Murmur, Puck, Radius, Sasquatch, Vindicator – all BTS)

AFv2 #9 p.4
Meanwhile, Clarke is distracted by Ghost Girl acting up. This seems to take place seconds after the action in AFv2 #9 p.3.
General Clarke, Lilli (Ghost Girl)

UX #355 p.4
Meanwhile, Rogue has her appointment with Dr. Agee.
Rogue, Dr. Agee, Martha (secretary, BTS)

AFv2 #9 p.6 panel 1 (visual and wbs 1-2) ~ UX #355 p.5 panel 5 (wbs 2-3 only)

Rogue

AFv2 #9 p.19 panel 6 ~ UX #355 p.19 panel 7 (wbs 2-3) [shared visual]
The UX panel contains more information – Rogue and Radius' fight is still visible.
Flex, Cannonball, (Radius, Rogue – both BTS in AFv2 panel)

AFv2 #9 p.19 panel 7 ~ UX #355 p.19 panel 8 (wb 1) [shared visual]

Puck leaps for Wolvie. The UX panel (wb 1) contains Wolvie's "correct" dialogue – the added word "the".
Wolverine (both, more in UX), (Guardian, Puck – just in AF)

UX #355 p.20 panel 2 (visual, wbs 2-4)
Puck connects with Wolvie.
Wolverine, Guardian, Puck

Murmur, Maggott

AFv2 #9 p.20 panel 3 ~ UX #355 p.20 panel 5
Sasquatch hits Maggott with Sauron. The AFv2 panel contains the "correct" visual – Murmur is visible – but the UX panel (wb 1) contains Sauron's "correct" dialogue – the added exclamation "Duffh!"
Sauron (more in UX), Murmur (BTS in UX panel), Sasquatch, Maggott

UX #355 p.20 panel 6 (visual and wb 1)
Murmur prepares to touch the fallen Maggott.
Murmur, Maggott

AFv2 #9 p.20 panel 4 (partial wb 1) ~ UX #355 p.20 panel 6 (wb 2)
Murmur: "Slee--"
Murmur

AFv2 #9 p.20 panel 4 (visual and rest of wb 1), panel 5
Murmur begins to scream, unnerved by a memory from her past.
Sauron, Murmur, Sasquatch, Maggott

UX #355 p.21 panel 1
Murmur, touching Maggott, continues to scream, and Rogue and Radius continue to fight. (It's hard to tell, but I take these two images as one panel.)
Murmur, Radius, Maggott, Rogue

AFv2 #9 p.21 panel 1 (visual and wb 1)
Murmur, her hands off Maggott, is still screaming.
Manbot, Murmur, Maggott

AFv2 #9 p.21 panel 1 (wb 2) ~ UX #355 p.21 panel 2 (visual and wb 1)
Manbot: "Subject sighted."
Manbot (both), (Wolverine, Guardian, Puck – just in UX)

AFv2 #9 p.21 panel 2 ~ UX #355 p.21 panel 2 (wb 2)
A big battle scene. The UX panel (wb 2) contains Wolvie's "correct" dialogue – he says "o'" instead of "of" in the AFv2 panel.
Wolverine (both, more in UX), (Sauron, Flex, Guardian, Manbot, Murmur, Puck, Radius, Sasquatch, Vindicator, Cannonball, Maggott, Rogue, Storm – just in AF)

AFv2 #9 p.21 panel 3 (wb 2) ~ UX #355 p.21 pop-out panel "8" (visual and wb 1)
Cannonball thinks there's been a big screw-up.
Flex (just in UX), Cannonball (both)

AFv2 #9 p.21 panel 4 ~ UX #355 p.21 pop-out panel "8" (wbs 2-4)
The UX panel (the hovering image of Cannonball and Flex superimposed over the reaction panels of Rogue and Sasquatch) contains Cannonball's "correct" dialogue in wbs 3-4 – Cannonball says "Wolvy's wanted for murderin' a guy a couple weeks ago – but we were all in Bastion's jail then." In the AF panel (wbs 2-3), he says "Wolvy's wanted for murderin' a guy a couple DAYS ago – but we were all in BOSTON'S jail then." 'Boston' is an obvious spellcheck mistake for the villain Bastion, and the "weeks" reference is chronologically more accurate than the "days" reference, as we know that six days separate the X-Men's return home from Bastion's jail in X #70 from UX #351-352, and "days" separate UX #352 from X #72, which UX #353-355 take place after.
Flex, Cannonball (more in UX)

AFv2 #9 p.22 panel 3 (visual and wb 3) ~ UX #355 p.22 panel 3 (partial wb 3)
Vindicator walks over to Wolvie and says "We're being used, and by our own bosses."
(Wolverine, Radius – just in AF), Vindicator (both)

AFv2 #9 p.22 panel 4 (wb 1) ~ UX #355 p.22 panel 3 (rest of wb 3)
Vindicator promises to return home and confront Department H.

UX #355 p.22 panel 3 (wb 4), panel 4
Wolvie stares into the woods: "Sauron..?"
Wolverine

AFv2 #9 p.22 panel 4 (visual and wb 2) ~ UX #355 p.22 panel 5 (wb 1)
The fight over, Wolvie prepares to leave.

UX #355 p.22 panel 5 (visual and wbs 2-6)
Wolvie says his goodbyes, takes Vindicator's hand, and promises to help her if needed.
Wolverine, Flex, Guardian, Manbot, Murmur, Puck, Radius, Sasquatch, Vindicator, Cannonball, Maggott, Rogue, Storm

AFv2 #9 p.22 panel 5
Close-up on Manbot as he transmits a delayed and distorted version of the events in UX #355 p.22 panel 5 (wb 2). (That word ballon should be coming FROM Manbot, not from off-camera – it's already distorted and is a "transmission"-type bubble.)
Manbot

AFv2 #9 p.22 panel 6
Clarke watches a close-up of Vindicator from UX #355 p.22 panel 5 (wb 4), although the video is likely from just afterwards (she is no longer smiling).
General Clarke

AFv2 #9 p.23
Clarke listens to distorted audio from UX #355 p.22 panel 5 (wb 5), and watches video from just after that point – Wolvie has dropped Vindicator's hand. On the monitors, Alpha Flight piles back into their jet and heads for home, as Clarke stews.
General Clarke

UX #355 p.23
Meanwhile, back the X-Mansion, Scott calls, worried about Jean. (Just as with p.1, this page doesn't HAVE to take place last, but placing it here doesn't interrupt the continuous events of AFv2 #9 pp.22-23 – and placing p.1 first and p.23 last, both with "answering machine" sequences, makes an effective bookend to the story.)
Cyclops, Phoenix (both on phone)
