Today in newuniversal History: Earth-555 doctors successfully implant POV camera

Today, March 2, 2006, at 06:49 Universal Time, the mysterious White Event changes the history of Earth-555, ushering in the Warren Ellis-created and reimagined newuniverse. (As opposed to Earth-148611, where a White Event on July 22, 1986 begins Jim Shooter's New Universe. You can tell the difference because one is in lower case, and doesn't have Kickers, Inc.

Over the next 24 hours I'll pinpoint some of the timed events that take place that day.

Panel from newuniversal #1 (February 2007), script by Warren Ellis, pencils and inks by Salvador Larroca, colors by Jason Keith, letters by Rus Wooton

(This panel is the only one in newuniversal that has a discrepancy between local and Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). I've chosen to pin it to the UTC time listed here rather than EST. All other dual times listed in the series are consistent with each other.)
