When did 3-D Man join the All-Winners Squad? The Squad wasn't active in the 50's, was it? --Danny Waah! 17:44, 10 May 2006 (EDT)
They were active during WWII. My history isnt as good as it used to be but i believe WWII was the 30's to the 50's or something like that.
IIRC, they were active after WWII, since the Invaders had no reason to be "invading" anything anymore. But WW II ended in 1945, and the Squad's activities remain largely unrevealed, it's generally considered that they faded away by the times the 50's rolled around. The 3-D Man is, however, definately a product of the 50's and was not involved in any team. (Except for the alternate-reality Avengers that was wiped from existence by Immortus and the Forever Crystal. The fact that the timeline "officially" never existed makes me want to take issue with the category "Avengers" for 3-D Man as well, but that's another arguement.) --Danny Waah! 18:01, 10 May 2006 (EDT)
The bio lists What If...#8 as a significant issue. I'm not deletin that part yet because I haven't read that issue, but alternate reality stories aren't supposed to be mentioned in the bios for characters from a different reality. sononsj 17:52, 20 May 2006 (EDT)
Well, if Stuart Vandal edited the entry to move the mention of a 1950's team to a footnote, then I think it's appropriate to delete the What If issue. FWIW, the issue was an inventory story that left the question of its "historical" accuracy open-ended. It was one of those "if it doesn't conflict, leave it in" issues, but 3-D Man did, in fact, join a team called the Avengers as shown in Avengers Forever only to have this timeline erased from existence, confirming at last that the 1950's Avengers team wasn't the 616 timeline. --Danny Waah! 18:58, 20 May 2006 (EDT)
I'm gonna delete it then. sononsj 19:19, 20 May 2006 (EDT)
Never mind; I hadn't noticed you'd already done that. sononsj 19:20, 20 May 2006 (EDT)
