Characters Appearing: Equinox, Falcon, Peggy Carter
Marvel Comics Presents #147 (Falcon)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #147 (Falcon story only)
Falcon arrives as Terry is about to hit his daughter again.
But it's pretty clear right from the start that Janet, not Terry, is responsible for the explosions.
Falcon helps Terry avoid jail and offers to help him deal with both Janet's powers and his abusive tendencies.
This was actually pretty decent (for an 8 page story with rough, rushed-looking art).
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Three weeks pass before the final page of the story.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
All these years later this is one of the eight page stories from MCP that I actually recall both fondly and vividly, probably because it stars the Falcon, a character I like, has an appearance by the semi-obscure but still cool villain Equinox, and it has early artwork by Steve Lieber, who went on the illustrate the acclaimed miniseries Whiteout.

This is one of those stories that will bug me because the writer clearly didn't pay attention to "Marvel time" (IE Franklin Richards was barely two when Equinox first appeared and yet here he's shown to be old enough to have a school-aged daughter, when contemporary Franklin was approx 6). You can say I'm being nitpicky but I can make the same argument using Kitty Pryde as the example. I'm guessing Gruenwald wasn't consulted on this one.

I think poor Franklin is the exception. He ages slower than anyone else in the Marvel Universe. He must take after his dad, who has aged backwards at times.
