    In the story is Puck portrayed as someone who has an alcohol problem or just a man drowning his sorrows as a one off?

    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    to me it came off more as a fella down on his luck, an on a bit of a tear. It could be seen as a man with an alcohol problem written by a man who doesn't know what an alcohol problem is actually like.

    So hopefully he was just out on a mega piss up, feeling a bit down. He doesn't look to much of a piss head in that pic from New Avengers #16.

    If someone can find a scan of this 'metallic' guy that Wolverine supposedly fought, I'd like to have a look-see...

    I doubt it's in continuity with New Avengers. Seems odd that it even could be.

    I haven't seen anything of it except for a couple of advanced pics so I couldn't say one way or the other. However, if you've ever followed any of Wolverine's books, Marvel seems to feel they don't have to match all the various stories to any continuity even though all the books are out at the same time. Wolverine is in the Savage Land with the New Avengers; in Japan in his own title and in New York in X-men. Not to mention the numerous guest appearances he makes, the various one-shots and miniseries. Most of which is happening in the same continuity. That's why I think it could be possible this is as well.

    In theory, it can't be before v1, since they'd never met at the time.

    Of course, that's been retconned out; but I'm not sure Puck was somebody Wolverine would've cared about enough to pick up out of the bottle back then. Come to think of it, why is he now? I guess they've kinda developed a working relationship over the years; with Hemmingway, and Alpha, and that guest in Seagle's X-Men... forget I askt.

    Unlimited, I'd say, is theoretically continuity, I believe, but it tends to get ignored. And to ignore (or foul up) old continuity: eg: early issue, a bunch of them are lost in a snow storm in the Arctic (? Antarctic?). Storm's there, and tries to control the -whole storm- instead of part of it (as she would've in Claremont's series), and fails (as she wouldn't in Claremont); they then get worried about her and disbelieve her Claremont line about "I'm immune to the weather". "What does that mean, when it rains, she doesn't get wet?"; when her line was "I don't feel extremes of temperature".

    *sigh* rambling now...

    In a previous post on this thread, I mused about WHEN this issue takes place. The recently released OHOTMU: A-Z Update confirms that it takes place between the disbanding of Alpha Flight in vol. 1 #130 and Puck's recruitment into the new vol. 2 Alpha Flight.
