Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: There Were Never Five Turtles Edition


This week, as our own Editor-In-Chief Stephen has been expecting for months, Disney made the announcement that Star Wars Episode VII and following material will be abandoning the existing post-ROTJ continuity.  As a fan of the much-retconned Legion of Super-Heroes, I can empathize with those who are upset by this announcement, but there is an upside as well.  The change in outlook means that Chewbacca’s demise in ‘Vector Prime’ is no longer set in stone, nor will we have to choose which post-Jedi continuity we believe to be correct.  (Heck, if we’re lucky, it’ll mean that the Holiday Special gets a DVD release and Bea Arthur take her rightful place as the third woman in the entire galaxy.)  As hard as it may be to accept the new overlords’ management of the galaxy far, far away, there’s always the expectation that this could simplify and even improve Star Wars continuity, which leads to today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds you that the ‘Ultimate Iron Man’ series gave us a Tony Stark who apparently had to be dipped in blue-coconut frosting or else his head would explode or something, which the rest of the Ultimates has wisely ignored, asking: Of all the retcons and changed concepts in the history of pop culture, which most deserved to be excised from continuity?
