Tom Brevoort's mini history lesson on Marvel continuity

Linked for posterity. I don't know that i agree with his characterization of Stan Lee, though. There is more play between books than i think Brevoort gives credit to (based on other comments i've seen from Brevoort as well) and even the use of footnotes to refer to past stories created a sense of continuity. Brevoort confuses the issue by bringing in real-time aging, which is a related topic, especially when you get into the issues related to the sliding timescale as Brevoort describes, but i don't think that has any direct bearing on whether or not Stan Lee had any use for continuity.
