‘WandaVision’: The Show’s Biggest Plot Holes, Explained
From its earliest days, Marvel took unusual care and pride in its issue-to-issue, series-to-series continuity. Still, nobody’s perfect. Sometimes, they made mistakes and continuity errors cropped up. For those, Marvel instituted what they called a “No-Prize,” which was given to readers who not only spotted errors in continuity, but simultaneously found ways to explain them so that they retroactively were no longer errors.
