Coming into this argument late. Egmont has added lore (i hate this word but lets worry about that later), some has been excellent like the stories on the 1st Phantom but some has not imo been so great (ie The Phantom being a descendant from Gladiators and Vikings) but the argument is about what Egmont has changed from what Falk already wrote about in his stories.
I will attempt to list some examples of Egmont changes AFTER what Falk has already written:
1) Date changed from 1525 to 1536
2) Skull ring given by the Jungle Chiefs by Falk and by an alchemist by Egmont
3) Phantom costume inspired by a Jungle God - Egmont changed to a drug induced dream
* These are changes and not additions, additions is when Egmont has kept what Falk said and added to it-fleshed it out. For example Falk never wrote how the rings came about, he just wrote how the 1st Phantom was GIVEN the ring. Hence a story about how they where created by Christs nails is not changing Falks Lore. BUT a story how some alchemist gave the first Phantom a ring is CHANGING...
the Phantom is the descendant of a viking, the Phantom is the descendant of a Gladiator, the Phantom has an illegitimate son, this illegitimate son married an ex-pirate and had a child, the Phantom's rings are made from the nails that nailed Christ to the cross, Lubanaga was President
Geaghs: imo these are 'additions' to the lore by Egmont and not changes, like the origin story of Devil.
Phantom's lineage, including marrying Swedish princesses, his triapsing in Europe, his fights with a gross character called Lubanga, his Chinese connections
Again PC, these imo are additions, some are rubbish and some are good!
Who was the first to write about the wife of the 16th Phantom?
You trying to trick people? For the record it was Egmont. I think this story was Flame which was created in the 70's or early 80's and then in the early 90's, Falk wrote a story about the Amazon pirate who ended up becoming the wife of the 16th.
I think from memory, it caused some juggling to the Phantom tree...
I am sure Falk agreed about Egmont´s Ring story and was a bit sorry not to have told it himeself.
I know this was said to be correct regarding the "Story of Devil" but I personally have not heard it was said regarding the origin of the ring.
