Marvel Database


Inspired by events in Generation X, the Flashback Month was a publishing initiative in July, 1997. For a month, nearly the entire Marvel line of titles published stories revealing untold events about their characters' past.[1] The retro stories allowed the creative teams involved to revisit characters, styles, and concepts from the Silver Age and occasionally from the Bronze Age.[2][3]

Most issues were introduced by a comic version of Stan Lee and they all contained one-shot stories. Some characters had their childhoods revisited, while others got untold secrets of their origins depicted.[1]
