Crossover Cover: Death Moon
According to this book, one legend about Jason Voorhees states that his great-great-great-great-grandfather Jebediah Voorhees was a warlock who possessed a copy of the Necronomicon Ex Mortis (from the Evil Dead films.) After his seeming death in 1667, the book was eventually passed down to Jason’s father Elias, who accidentally summoned a demon with it that allegedly possessed Jason. This novel is a tie-in to the movie Jason X, which has Jason being brought out of cryogenic suspension in 2455, when the Earth has been overcome by pollution and humans have relocated to a new planet called Earth Two. This does not fit with the future of the CU’s Earth seen in other stories set in the 25th Century or later, and therefore Jason X must take place in an alternate timeline. However, the historical details about Jebediah Voorhees could be true in CU continuity as well.

If I remember correctly, Win noted in Crossovers that the Necronomicon Ex Mortis was seen in Jason's house in one of the movies (or maybe it was a comic.) That would indicate some truth to the story. It would also explain how Jason keeps coming back from the dead.ReplyDelete
Yep, Jason Goes to Hell.ReplyDelete
Then I don't see any problem with the past being in the CU.ReplyDelete
Are you going to put this in the regular contents or the AU section?
I'll put the book itself in the AU section, but note that the past references probably do apply to the CU as wellReplyDelete
