What is a Retcon?

Retcon means Retroactive Continuity.

A retcon is the alteration of facts or history stated in a piece of fiction. It can either be additional information or even an extreme change of information. Retcons commonly happen in comic books due the long history of characters especially those of mainstream brands. Retcons also happen on fictional materials that are episodic in nature, like Television shows, film sequels, video games, and even novels that are part of a series. In the case of comic books, issues are what we call the episodes.

Why Retcon? And… what’s with the Double N?

Well, retcons happen very frequently lately especially now that some comic brands rewrote the history of their universe after a major crossover event. Take for example DC, who solved most of their continuity issues with their latest effort called, Infinite Crisis. Also, most people don’t really know what’s going on with comic books right now, so everything they thought they knew about their favorite comic book character is now a retcon. Retcons can be good or bad but it really depends on the reader. We at Monthly Retconn neither support or dislike retcons. We just think that they are some things we can look back to and talk about it. The other N? oh, that’s just for kicks. You got a problem with that?

Uncanny X-men #476
posted by jepster2006

Writer: Ed Brubaker
Pencils: Billy Tan

“SETUP ISSUE Part 2”. That’s what I’d call this issue. Not that it’s bad, in fact the writing is very well done but the pacing is too slow. Knowing this issue continues up to 10 more issues, I wish this storyline would end with four more. The story feels decompressed but I can’t escape the fact that I still enjoyed a lot of it, especially the action scenes. It feels like watching Harry Potter 2 after Harry Potter 1. The first issue of Bru’s run was way better than this one.

Now, what was strong in the first issue of this run is now quite the downside of this issue. The faces are starting to look alike, just like those days in the 90’s where most of the characters were twins with different skin color and hairstyles. It’s still good, but I can’t help escape the feeling of awkwardness looking at Scott’s “Nightcrawler” look. Just look at Nightcrawler from issue #475 and Scott in this one. See the resemblance?

I still haven’t given up on this book and I know Bru will bring on the bacon next issue. The last page is an awesome setup for a great X-Adventure in space. Read on X-fans!

Rating: 8.6/10
