Excellent work Laylah, especially given how Hela has been treated in recent times.There is some great art here that I hadn't seen before; thank you for highlighting it here!

(Late response, but in case anyone else stumbles by).

Hela's hand is cut off in Thor #611 - The Fine Print, Part 1. Curiously, from the way it is drawn it seems (at least to me) to be her Ieft hand, rather than the right hand which is shown missing in Journey into Mystery. Not a lot of books published after that picked up on this, as Hela is shown with her hand plenty of times in later issues, but apparently the artists for those Journey into Mystery issues did think it worthwhile to include - or rather leave it out. Her hand (her left hand) was restored in Journey into Mystery #641.

I don't mind heroes changing their costumes. After all, many of the heroes started out wearing something different from what we now consider to be their signature outfit. Good designers will find a way to keep the identity alive. However, this new costume just seems like a colourful jacket with matching glasses. It's rather underwhelming.

I hope this topic isn't considered 'too old' to post in, but I stumbled upon it after looking up some of Batman's finest lines and figured I contribute a few of my own favourites.

Batman is always good for some brooding quotes, but I liked this one from Booster Gold #1000000 as well:

Batman: "Let the world think you're crazy if that's what it takes to be the best you can be, Michael. You proved me wrong, you proved yourself wrong. If you ever need someone to talk to - I might not be Ted Kord, but I'll listen. Whatever you're doing... keep it up."

To stick with the positive theme, I also liked this musing from Bruce Wayne: The Road Home, about Stephanie Brown:

Bruce Wayne: "Like the others, Brown has shown growth in my absence. Unlike the others, my return may have the least impact on her operation - one not born of fear, but of hope for a brighter tomorrow. Who knows - maybe there's room for hope in Gotham, after all."

Just as a heads-up to anyone looking to see Goldstar again: she made an appearance in the one-shot Booster Gold: Futures End #1 released in late 2014.

Nyx is correct. To be exact, this is a picture from Exiles #88 which was published in 2007. The artists who worked on that issue are listed on its page on the wiki.

@ubermicro: Another very late reply, but since this summary of events appears on quite a few websites it still seems relevant. Thunderscream is basically correct; Deathbird as War happens during the The Twelve story arch.

Las Vegas is mentioned when Deathbird betrays Bishop in X-Men #92. Later on in that issue Bishop awakens in a desert and sees a sign that reads 'Las Vegas, Nevada - 42 miles'. The reader is then referred to the Bishop: The Last X-Man series. The first issue of that series starts with a dream Bishop is having, but when he wakes up he is revealed to be in Salem Center (in Westchester County, New York). He explains: "After months in space, I have returned to earth -- betrayed by Deathbird and then... deposited in the desert, left to find my way. I have come home to the X-Men, my heroes... my teammates... my friends... the people I would fight and die for."

As for the other events concerning Deathbird, they can be found in issues like The Uncanny X-Men #374, Cable #74, X-Men #96, and The Uncanny X-Men #377. Rasputin's intervention takes place in X-Men #97.
