Appears to have "fallen back" from 5:00 CST to 6:00 CST. I did survive the time the site has been down over the past few days. One day, I just barely got a minor edit in.... Good, clean livin' I guess. 'Batroc' 23:36, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
so... I stumbled acrooss the Tales of Asgard backup-story in Journey into Mystery #105, where Balder gets hi immortality after being led to believe he's being executed. Apart fom being a wonderful story to read, I stumbled across the following phrase: "But the ordeal of Baldr is not yet ended!! At a command from Odin, his brother Honir, champion spear thrower of Asgard, picks up his truest shaft..."
Now obviously, this guy's not Odin's brother, unless it's the Snake under a different name, but let's hope not, so he must be Balders... which means he's also Thor and the whole gang's half-/quarter/whatever brother. Being a specialist in things Asgardian, have you ever heard of him in a Marvel publication apart from this instance? (He is obviously a character from German Mythology with a wikipedia article here, but then again, even that doesn't mention any family relation....
Hi Batroc. I was just wondering if lately Marvel has anyone in charge? There are two bureaucrats on the site and I know Jamie is inactive. It doesn't look like Nathan has responded on his message wall in over a month.
I left Nate a request about a month (?) ago and never heard back. That's unusal. Can you delete/clean up that Gramosian crap I created? (haha). That is what I asked him to do.
I don't know who is a moderator and who is just a wiseapple around here. I just try to fly under the radar and stay in my sandbox. GrnMarv (?) still looks like he is active and has given me lots of advice in the past few years. and what the heck happened to Leowik? He has dropped off the map completely. The Ultimate Nullifier may have been activated and we are probably next!!!
Seriously, if I can help you with anything, I'd give it a shot.
I am unsatisfied with the early 60s Kirby splash pages I posted. At the time I posted them, all I had available were Marvel Masterwork reprints. Now I have scans from the original comics. I would like to rename those files and move them to the Marvel Masterwork editions where they belong, but I would need a bureaucrat to make me an admin here and I don't know if that's possible. I wonder if the existing admins would be ok with me just removing those splashes and posting ones from the original comics and replacing them.
Sounds like you know how to do that properly.... Let's see, you brought these items to the party,,, Is there any imminent domain here? If it fits into categories/naming conventions properly and uploaded according to code, I suppose that would be fine. It sounds good.
