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?

Fantastic Four 2 gets new title.
posted by jepster2006

Just got this over the net from Cinescape.com

" According to Superhero Hype, the upcoming sequel to 20th Century Fox's FANTASTIC FOUR has received another title change.

The movie was previously known as Fantastic Four and The Silver Surfer, but will now be known as FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER. The second film, directed by Tim Story, is set to hit theaters on June 15, 2007.

In the sequel, the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of The Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.

Michael Chiklis, Ioan Gruffudd, Chris Evans, Jessica Alba and Julian McMahon star. "

Well, for me, what's cool is the Silver Surfer. What I don't like is the return of Doctor Doom. Well, Doom should be better this time, he was so wrong in the first film. Let's hope the sequel does a better job. I liked the first one if Doom wasn't in it. Will we get to see Galactus in the third sequel? Are trilogies "in" these days?

why does fox insist on making their movies so quickly. i am reassured as i read that they are going to improve the characters of reed and doom. those 2 need the most work. also, i think it is wise to add the surfer to the fantastic four movies rather than giving him a solo movie. this gives people a reason to give F4 a second chance.
