ContinuityGlitchWatch: Where Original Sin And Captain America Just Don't Match Up.

The perils of writing a shared continuity…

Over the weekend, Bleeding Cool pointed out a slight problem with Original Sin #6, featuring a Thor, with his hammer, shown after he had been made unworthy to wield it with a whisper.

However this scene should be easy to rectify for the $75 collection. Just remove the hammer, or remove Thor. He might not even have been meant to be there.

But it's not the only comic with such a problem. And this one will will be harder to fix.

In the recent Captain America #23 we see Thor wielding his hammer, in full Thor garb. And using it in a very Thor fashion. So this must have taken place before the concluding episodes of Original Sin.

But then he sees the older Captain America. A scene that must have taken place after the concluding episodes of Original Sin.

Going to be a lot harder to fix that for the collection.

At Baltimore Comic Con, Marvel's Tom Brevoort talked about the return to problems caused by that time fracture of Age Of Ultron. Maybe this could be a symptom?
