So, I came upon a new problem during the tallying. I'll put it under a spoiler cut so as to not spoil anything about the new issue of Astonishing X-Men.
Spoiler: show
In the new Astonishing X-Men, X was sort of revealed as the Shadow King. I say 'sort of' because X literally burst open like a piñata to reveal the Shadow King. I don't know if he was hiding inside of X or if he was pretending to be X this entire time. If it is former then it's no problem but if it's the later then we have a situation. Should the disguise be considered as an appearance or not. This is the same situation with shape-shifters, illusionists and impersonators. So whatever choice made will count for them.

I think a disguise should only be considered a cameo at best, but i’m happy to go with the masses on this one :)

There's the slight problem of having to go back and change all the scores and consequently placements and rankings.

I feel like if a character is perceived to be one thing at the time of the tally the score should remain intact.

I'm not playing but observing with interest and I question whether you should count the SHIELD by Hickman and Weaver issue. It is a reprint of old issues. If you are counting it you might as well count the True Believer reprints as well.

I have yet to read the SHIELD issue but if it is a reprint then it won't be counted. When I post the to-be-tallied list I always exclude reprints but sometimes due to the way it is titled in the PreviewsWorld weekly list it may slide through my scrutiny. Only new material is counted.

After some thought, here is my ruling (I felt so SCOTUS just now): unknown disguises will be counted as a full appearance of the character until the reveal. If the disguise is known, such as Mystique impersonating someone and we knowing from the get-go, then the impersonator will count as the full appearance and the impersonated as a cameo.

Also, I just had the horrifying thought of running this contest during Secret Invasion and had a minor breakdown. :D

I'll post the results later today.

All i’m hearing are excuses. Now, you’ve got some slowing down to do if you want to stand a chance to succeed me as the best loser.
