I don't know. Fullmetal Alchemist used Fritz Lang, who is also Führer King Bradley's alter ego in our timeline. They were going to use Rudolf Steiner instead, but this worked out pretty well. Oh, and it's implied the Holocaust was just so Hohenheim could get enough souls together to form a philosopher's stone so he and his son Ed could go back to their own universe.
Gannon-BANNED for saying "Japanimation"!
There are many other examples. I mean, technically, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a crossover of all sorts of 19th-century figures, real and fictional; and a Venture Bros episode had a parody of them with the early 20th century, such as Aleister Crowley and Eugen Sandow.
Shows aren't always true to history. I mean, when I was a kid, all the kids were into Power Rangers; as near as I can tell, Angel Grove started as a British colony in the vicinity of Los Angeles witha reservation nearby which is home to a group of plains Indians with a magic arrowhead that is divided in two and if the two ever come together, it would unleash cosmic horrors. Oh, and sabertooth tigers, pterodactyls, and mammoths are dinosaurs now. (Don't forget dragons!) And Tommy and Kim are distant cousins. Ew.
All that is known about Samuel colt in the supernaturalverse so far is that he created the Colt.
That Colt was a real person and is documented in REAL life doesn't mean the writters won't use it.
The Samuel Colt that creates the Colt could very well be a different Samuel Colt than the one depicted in history books. It's easy to play around with whatever you want when you're writting the show just like they made the anti-christ a nice guy or how they made pagan gods weaklings. We won't know for sure until the episode hits.
|Could be, could be. I'm still hung up on that mysterious hunter he made the Colt for in the firs place. |
To me the only illogical thing they did with the whole time travel thing was in "The End" when future Dean didn't remember traveling to the future when he was present Dean.
I know they said in the commentary that it made sense but, when you REALLY think about it, it REALLY doesn't.
|Well, it's really just a matter of thinking it through and "Supernatural" did a bang up job of that. Like I said the only issue I had was the whole future Dean not remembering thing but apprently they wrote it that way the first time but thought it would confuse people (really? not this crowd I'm Sure) or it messed up their script. Still would have been nice if he remembered though. |
The best move they did was have Micheal scrub John and Mary's memory otherwise it would have been a major mess.
|Well, still think it would be better and much cleaner if Sam, Dean or Sam and Dean are the hunter(s) that Colt makes THE Colt for (John did say that he made the Colt for a hunter), rather than either of them standing in for him. Standing in for him isn't really required for the story and it would be a neat nod to the original story of the Colt for Sam and Dean to be the ones to get him to make the gun.|
|To me the only illogical thing they did with the whole time travel thing was in "The End" when future Dean didn't remember traveling to the future when he was present Dean.|
Provided that was actually Dean's own future. From my understanding of the episode (even though I haven't watched the commentary yet)there always somewhat of a question regarding whether what Dean saw was actually the real future or just a fake version (or dream of some sort) that Zacharia created to try and manipulate Dean into saying yes to Michael. Provided it was a fake version future Dean's lack of memory of having made the trip himself could simply be passed off as something Zach forgot to incorporate.
|You know I'm a fan of the time-paradox stuff...the whole idea that it's the boys who while trying to change things in the past to prevent their past and future are the ones who screw things up and are the ones who untimatly set things into motion, the very things they are trying to prevent in their present...so, hopefully this is what the ep will be, and the whole Samuel Colt thing will only be a side-bar...|
I'm with you on being a fan of time-paradox's. While not entirely original it's incorporation into the overall story line was very well done (not to mention I'm a sucker for time travel plots) and Dean and Sam's struggle against it has been quite Shakespearian if I may invent a word for lack of a better one. That being said it will be interesting to see how the brothers procede if they are sent back in time given last episode's renewal of the debate about free-will and given their previous failures to actually change the past.
