Flashback to forgottenuniverses.com (21st Nov 17 at 5:28pm UTC)
Here's the internet archive version of forgottenuniverses.com :

https://web.archive.org/web/20040809225332/http://www.forgottenuniverses.com:80/index2.html

It was modeled after the old valiantcomics.com fan site. Same color scheme and template.

As I continue to file old emails, here is an excerpt from an email I sent someone on 9/17/2003:

Quote:
Most of the information looks like it was taken from the Mile High Comics site since it copied their errors.

www.forgottenuniverses.com

It is hosted on a server for free by a company that does online marketing. I have no desire to collaborate or
support the site since the company hosting the site is probably just collecting data to spam people. It is
setup with the same templates used at valiantcomics.com which I no longer advocate or support either.


This was before I knew that Ryan McLelland (the front man for the site) had actually been working with or for Scott Rosenberg & Jim Shooter.
I had forgotten the site had copied the errors from the Mile High Comics site.

I never saw this website before back then. I'm guessing it was a cover gallery and old forums spot.... Smiley

Ryan/Rosenberg/Shooter.....wonder what developed through that.... Smiley

Side note....I think Shooter was probably even more creative and prolific after his Defiant/Broadway ventures with the stuff i've read from his old interviews. The stuff he did for Daring/ICON/Phobos sound massive and still remain hidden. Also his plans for Seven #2-7 issues too. I guess Daring would be the only one that's owned by him and not anybody else at this point.

I think to some degree that the legacy of Western's characters were like a ball and chain to Shooter's writing whether he felt that way or not.

I still don't understand why Shooter and Richardson (Dark Horse) spend more time and money promoting other people's creations and don't try to own anything for themselves. It's like renting a home and then helping the neighbors buy theirs. Renting is fine, but try to own something that others can rent from you.

More like this:

I think it was created to discredit the significance of my site, create a content resource that could be controlled/manipulated, and promote Rosenberg's stuff on top of Jim's stuff.

Yeah. Not sure what's going on with that. Click the link and type "www.forgottenuniverses.com" into their search engine. It'll give you a timeline with dates you can click. You'll get different snapshots for different dates.
