I checked the archives and didn't see it asked, so if it was, sorry. I'm confused. You said that the timeline for "The Spectacular Spider-Man" is basically the 1962 era, when Spidey first meets his foes and when he first meets the early Marvel heroes, like Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, and Ant Man as examples. You mentioned Donald Blake hasn't gone to Norway yet and become Thor, but I thought Thor was from 1962 and made his debut before Spider-Man? Anyway, I wanted to ask, when does this show go into the "1963" era of your show? Season three, if there is one? Has it basically started since the January and on episodes of season two?
Thanx for reading. :)
Spidey and Thor both debuted in August 1962. But you're taking my statement too literally. It's not a one-for-one ratio, i.e. 2008 = 1962 and 2009 = 1963. We were adapting a huge, sprawling work -- and as you know -- bringing in characters from multiple eras to do it. So in my mind, Donald Blake had not gone to Norway yet. Just a decision I made, basically.
