*** That's how classic Marvel continuity used to define time travel. Current stories don't worry about it, and the effects of time travel vary from writer to writer.

** That's the whole problem. As has been seen in other Marvel titles, when you "change" the past, you actually shift yourself and those with you into a new alternate timeline. From a FridgeHorror perspective, that means that you could be creating entire [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack]] ''[[CrapsackWorld Universes]]''!

* Why would Iron Lad choosing not to become Kang muck up the timeline? It's a canonical fact that all of Kang's time hopping has created an army of alternate versions of himself (enough of them, in fact, to field their own LegionOfDoom). So why does it matter if one particular Nathaniel Richards decides to become a hero instead of a villain?

* This is a pretty minor question, but how does nobody notice the fact that Tommy has white hair when they first see him? I mean, I can believe the fact that they look the same would pop out to Billy and the others when they first meet him, but when they burst through the wall of Kl'rt's ship Teddy mistakes Tommy for Billy, and later Captain America mistakes Tommy for Billy. In the latter case, I'm especially confused seeing as this was from behind and there was no way for Captain America to see Tommy's face at that angle. If he was going to mistake Tommy for anyone, I'd've thought it'd be Pietro.

* Can the future Kang is in in the ''[[ComicBook/TheChildrensCrusade Children's Crusade]]'' oneshot be assumed to have been averted after the events of the actual run? (Namely [[spoiler: the deaths of Stature and The Vision.]]) It seems the specific events could still be possible, given that DeathIsCheap, but it also seems like a hindrance in the face of continuing stories.

** It was one of the many things she does in her spare time as an idle rich kid, not to mention after her assault expreience she wants to defend herself and others

* Why is Kate so damn good with a bow and arrow? She just happened to pick them up when scavenging for weapons her first night out fighting and now she's running missions alongside world's greatest marksman Hawkeye. Where did her skill come from?

* Why do Wiccan and Hulkling keep the full extent of their powers a secret at first? When Jessica Jones asks Wiccan, "You generate electricity? Lightning?" he justs says, "Um...yeah. Kinda." He's not being secretive about anything else--he just voluntarily revealed his real name and a bunch of details about his family. Then Hulkling says that he's super-strong, but doesn't mention that he's also a shape-shifter. What is going on here?

*** In Hulkling's backstory he bristles at the implication that he's a skrull, and the closest thing he had to a combat application was stretching his hands out into demonic-looking claws. Considering that he didn't make effective use of his shapeshifting powers until later and "I'm like the Hulk but smaller and less dumb" sounds more heroic than "I could be a skrull, and I can make myself look really scary", it's kind of obvious why he would omit that (or not want to confirm his fears). Additionally, Wiccan was still adjusting to his powers, his reality manipution skills were in the realm of "It's something I can sorta maybe do" and his bolts were a lot like lightning. They were yellow and they set something on fire- MUCH LIKE LIGHTNING! Later, his energy bolts were drawn blue and had a different look, but he really had no way of putting a name to them other than "Lightning, kinda" until he started suspecting his connection to the Scarlet Witch.

** Chase probably saw the similarites between Wiccan's costume and Thor's thought the joke worked.

*** That's been close to proved wrong by now (and you shouldn't hide your theories, by the way. They're not spoliers. They're theories). In the latest issue, [[spoiler: Scarlet Witch comes back, almost goes insane, and calls Wiccan and Speed "my sons" and says she'll try to undo the Decimation form the end of House of M.]] Also, during the Young Masters arc, Coat of Arms was a girl who knew Speed in Ju-V. So he wasn't willed into being too recently, if he was.

** She wanted to "give it back" but Clinton told her somewhere that she may keep it.

** On a related note, how old Hulkling is? He was born after Kree-Skrull War that took place about 10 years before his Young Avenger appearance, but looks 15, at least. It could be chalked up to his alien hybrid physiology, but shouldn't he have noticed that he grew 1,5 times faster than other kids?
