So I am a little confused over the Heroes Reborn story. From what I understand, after the heroes died facing Onslaught, Franklin Richards created a pocket universe in which the heroes were reborn and lived slightly different lives with different origins. I've also been told Franklin created a Counter Earth, which is where they resided. I have some questions regarding continuity and the aftermath of this event. Unfortunately, I did not read Heroes Reborn: The Return, where it may have all been explained.
i ask these questions in a understanding and editing stand point:
1. Was it a pocket universe, a Counter Earth, or combination of both that Franklin sent them to?
2. The heroes who 'died' in the battle with Onslaught had new origins. Upon their return to the 616 universe, did they forget all of these events? Were they reminded by someone of their true pasts? Do they live both of these lives currently? Were the Heroes Reborn origins retconned? The only example I have is when Thing came back in Silver Surfer Volume 3 and told Alicia that he was a different person now and 'needed some time to figure out who he was.' It also mentions on Iron Man's page that he retained his memories.
3. In all four series created to show how these characters lived their new lives, there was a normal supporting cast of characters who did not die in the battle with Onslaught. For example, Nick Fury, the Inhumans (except Crystal), Silver Surfer and Galactus. Were these all created by Franklin as well to give the illusion of a new world? Nick Fury and Silver Surfer (among others) were alive and well during these events in the 616 universe (Galactus was actually 'dead' at the time). Should info on these types of characters be placed in the alternate reality sections of their pages?
4. Most importantly, where does this information fit into the wiki?
I appreciate and answers, comments or input. Most examples I find on the internet are unclear as to how this fits into 616 continuity. Even some people who know much more than I have told me they are not sure either. Maybe we can't decide if it is canon or not, but let's at least figure out how we can incorporate the info to the site.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I know it's a little long.
