CROSS-APPEARANCES: ALTERNATE APPEARANCES


For the most part, these are appearances set in future or alternate realities. I've also included some Hostess advertisements here (Hostessverse?), as examples of actual appearances of the DD character, but outside the normal Marvel Universe continuity. In addition, whenever possible, I've included a rating of how big a part DD/Murdock plays in that issue. You'll find a grade of "major", "minor", "bit", or "non-appearance" (the same standards used on the main cross appearance summary page) in brackets next to the book title and issue number to help you decide whether a particular issue is worth hunting down or not.
Many thanks to Robert Orme for catching some errors on this page!

May pulls together the Lady Hawks, the Buzz, the Green Goblin, and the Raptor to form the new New Warriors to try and stop the Faces. The Green Goblin warns May about Angel Face remembering a time when the original Daredevil defeated her.
note: I'm tempted to put this as a regular non-appearance instead of an alternate/future appearance. DeFalco writes it as if it connected with the Green Goblin issues that he wrote himself that were part of Marvel canon, but I don't think the scene was actually in the old Green Goblin series. So, you could argue that this is in the MC2 continuity looking back toward Marvel canon, or you could say it's unpublished Marvel canon being remembered from within the MC2 universe!
