Actually that was barely a year, 1949-1950. Also, I never said it was continuous. I said that the continuity was loose. For example, in Dr Who, the Daleks have had their origin retconned - that's loose continuity. So is the original Red Power Ranger suddenly having his powers back when he guested in the Wild Force season's (season 10) Forever Red episode, when his powers were destroyed in season 3. In Marvel Comics however, the House of M storyline saw most mutants lose their powers. Only a select few have ever got them back - the change was permanent. That's stronger continuity, although the fact the characters don't age properly is an example of loose continuity!
'continuity' is a word I find it hard to associate with Marvel these days...

They do make more appearances, the intention is to make them regular, let's see. (I think it may take more than one appearance of a character before she can be labelled 'token'.)
The original Lord Snooty isn't dead, he's Lord of somewhere or other I can't recall and this one is Lord of somewhere else. You know, that kind of thing.

Bunkerton. By token, I meant the only one in the group. Like Toots in Bash Street.

Interesting, given that you've drawn Lord Snooty I as Snooty III's grandfather - but surely the rules of inheritance are such that Snooty III wouldn't have inherited any titles yet - only the eldest son of the earl being allowed to use a courtesy title.

Unless Snooty II is dead? And does all this mean that Snooty is no longer Lord of Bunkerton?

(I looked up Wiki - only eldest sons of eldest sons of Dukes or Marquesses get the second courtesy title. Unless of course Snooty I's absent father was a Duke, in which case you're flying)
