Talk:Alternate past Sam & Max
 The Sam & Max Universe:
For starter, I would like to point out how everyone considers that the Sam & Max in the game is to be canon with them all (Comics, TV show), but in some ways that is not always the case. Takeing the reasently released Turtles Forever and other cartoon, game, and comic book references, it is to be considered that these Sam & Maxs are simalar but are not the exact same characters. For one thing, the suroundings are not compleatly the same (the offices in each series do not match, and the Sub-Basement of Solitude is never seen out side of the cartoon and the street is also in simalar but different disign), which brings me to the next subject. Some of the main character are not seen or mentioned, or are only seen in that one particular place (Flint has never appeared in the cartoon and has actions in the games are slightly different, Lorne "the friend for life", and The Geek and Sam's Grandmother (who's only ever appearence has been in the cartoon) are never seen or heard from after the cartoon ended, and most of the characters in and events in the games are exusive to the game (exculding Flint). The major differences are (besides the difference in their young and older selfs) the tone and style to each one; the game ones are more reasonable but can be more agressive and ruthless, the cartoons are more lighter but are more straight forward and kooky, and the comic book ones are edgier and a little dark and combines all of the personality traits of all of them. The cartoon mult universe is not just a theme that ha been just come up and has infacted been used way back to the time of Bizarro Superman and Porky in Wackyland, and are as easy to assoseate with evil twins from other dimentions. So even if the other Max replaced the old Max, it does no mean the original is gone, that title goes to Steve Purcell's comics. It all depends on what you think.
- That's quite a wall of text. I've read it, and I kind of get what you're on about. But it doesn't seem to have much to do with the page this is the Talk section of. I was about to ask what your point was when you added the last two lines. Even with them, it looks like you're just waxing philosophical. That's fine but it doesn't seem to have any bearing on this page in particular. Maybe you want to bring this up on a forum instead? --Harald B 16:34, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
- I totally understand and agree with you that the comics, cartoon, and games seem more like different dimensions or something than a continuing story. But Harald is right, I don't think this is the right place to talk about this. (I can also see how Sam's and Max's pages are going to see some changes if we separate each medium. I don't know if anyone would be up for that task.) Traveler of Game Worlds 17:26, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
- Exactly, I just wanted to get the positive word out (in the wrong place apparently). I just don't want people going around thinking (after the finale) that the Max (or Maxes) that we've known for 23 years has been replace in one video game by one that been around for 4 years and remembers nothing about current events. That would be weird. Stev123 17:01, 2 September 2010 (EST)
Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say that all Sam and Max medium introduce a different Sam and Max. In the games, Sam and Max make reference to their comic adventures, and the same holds true for the cartoon. Sure things are going to look different when you transfer them over to other forms, that's a given. The Sam and Max universe is constantly changing with things entering and leaving, being altered and given over-the-top explanations for why they are the way they are. --SparkofSanity 21:43, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
