Alphans in Official Index to the Marvel Universe #13

Official Index to the Marvel Universe #13

Note: The cover shown looks different than the solicits because this is the actual cover, not the solicited cover. As the series progressed, the writers ended up covering slightly different issues than predicted. The covers in this series include three reproduced comic covers side-by-side, each representing the comic in the series indexed. It had been the first issue of each series, but not for this issue. In this issue: Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. #28, Amazing Spider-Man #534 and Uncanny X-Men #495 are shown. Inside, the series begins indexing the X-Men at issue #490.

The Official Index to the Marvel Universe contains detailed synopses of individual comics, including all of the relevant data pertaining to the comic as well as a thumbnail of the cover art, 2 issues per page (roughly). In this issue, Mister Jeffries appears on the cover of Uncanny X-Men #514. Also, Northstar appears on the cover of the 2nd printing variant of Uncanny X-Men #511 and the cover of Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1.

This issue also confirms Northstar’s identity in Uncanny X-Men #510, where he was shown in one panel, unnamed. It also reveals two previously unknown appearances of Mister Jeffries! One is Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1, an issue already collected for Northstar’s appearance and the other is a NEW issue not previously collected: Uncanny X-Men #513, where he’s identified from the script as one of the characters in the background as a silhouette.

    Always good to know 😀

    In #510 is Northstar in the scene of the dead, then?

    And as for #513; which panel is it?

  2. Phil Says:

    And for that matter, I still can’t see Jeffries in Utopia…

  3. Phil Says:

    Thanks for those!

    Oooo, silhouettes.

    Not meaning to rain (reign? dark reign, perhaps?) on anybody’s parade, but how sad is it that we are getting excited about silhouettes that we did not even know were of a former Alpha Flight member until it was pointed out to us…

      The insanity of completsists is that there’s no threshold beneath which the necessity of an issue for our collection is denied. Yes, I get a thrill from the most minor appearance, even this silhouette one, though honestly, it’s fairly tempered in comparison to other more substantial ones.
