Character Spotlight: Jason Stryker('s Name?)
"Comics Should Be Good!" has a recent article about how Marvel recently introduced Jason Stryker into X-Men comics and the continuity problems it introduced. I'll provide a link so you can read the article yourself, but the short version is that in Marvel Graphic Novel #5: God Loves, Man Kills (1982), Rev. William Stryker mentions his son dying. In the movie X2: X-Men United (2003), Colonel Stryker's son, Jason, is alive and a mutant with illusion powers (they combined him with Jason Wyngarde aka Mastermind). In All-New X-Men #19 (November 2013), we find out Stryker's son - now named Jason, while he previously went unnamed - is actually alive. He hasn't been shown to have illusion powers as far as I know but it still counts.
