I was reading the Invincible Iron Man Reconstructed run and it had Don Blake turning into Thor. What's the deal there, I thought they retconned it so that Thor was just Thor now? Explain to me how Thor works!
To start with, that is not what retcon means. Ignoring that, currently Thor is just Thor, and I think that happened following Fear Itself (someone else can correct me). At the start of JMS's run on Thor, he was back to switching places with Donald Blake for awhile for reasons I don't remember, but I do recall all the Asgardians got stuck in human bodies as a result of Ragnarok during Avengers Disassembled, so it was essentially the return of Thor after awhile.

See, why I stopped reading X-Men decades ago (around the time 10 was going on I'd say) is that this is just ONE character's back story out of what? 40? 50? more? You're expected to know to keep up with that group. Heck, even frickin Lockheed now has a crazy history, and he started out as just "wacky pet mini dragon".
This is true of basically any comic from Marvel or DC, though. (And no, you're not expected to know all of that. All you need to know about Magneto is that he used to be a bad guy, now he's not, and his powers are wonky.)

The F4 have public identities and are a family, so they usually just use their first names when referring to each other since they have nothing to hide. Sue can still turn invisible, it's just that force fields are a bit more useful in combat situations.

Yeah, his backstory at creation was "badass who looks badass." Everything else was tacked on later, though a lot of stuff came within the first couple years like him being called Nathan and his associations with various other characters.

Also, whoa, Mignola on early X-Force.

Cannonball is often phrased as "nearly invulnerable" or "practically invulnerable" when he's "blastin'". Source.

A nuke seems like it would be out of his ballpark, but given he beat up Gladiator once, it really depends on the writer.
He got a lucky punch on Gladiator through creative uses of their respective powers. It was pretty clear he would have otherwise been outclassed.

And I'd guess most of the big cosmic dudes could take a nuke - Gladiator, Silver Surfer, etc.

Not quite the same thing, but there was one guy from JMS Spider-Man who fixed superhero costumes. There's one panel where Doom shows up at his shop to get his cape fixed, and at the end he passes Peter the design for a "Spider-Man of the future" outfit which sees use in (I think) the "Happy Birthday" story.

Various issues of Fantastic Four explain that Reed licences unstable molecules to other teams to make costumes and Giant-Size X-Men #1, Professor X says he made the all-new, all-different team's uniforms with them.
In an issue of X-Force immediately following X-Cutioner's Song, the team uses a Shi'ar machine in the basement of the Xavier School to make new costumes. So now they just use space tech, I guess.

Except that it doesn't? Each column is it's own section.

Okay, fine, but if you limit it to each column, it is still saying you could read, say, War of Kings #3-6 followed by War of Kings #1-2 because the word "may" implies an option. It's just a minor personal annoyance and I get what it's trying to say and no one is actually going to do that.

One theater here is like the one Soonmot described, also after a remodel, but I don't think they have alcohol. More important they are not showing GotG, so I'm going to a regular theater that doesn't seem to have a midnight showing, but has 10 PM one on Thursday, but since buses end at midnightish on weekdays, I will have to drive which is disappointing. (I guess I could walk, but it's a bit of a hike and entirely uphill.)

It happens in Warlock and the Infinity Watch pretty much immediately after. He doesn't lose them so much as the Living Tribunal decides that they will no longer work together, so he gives them away to his best buddies and also Thanos.
