Love Machinery, Fourteen
Beast and Rachel Summers.
"Yes, Rachel, I brought the original X-Men from the past. Surely, you can understand the concept of changing the present, being from the future."
"Beast, you took them from YOUR past. If one of them dies, we are SO f*cked!"
Speaking of time travel... Yeah, hexagon hologram! Ninth Doctor turns to Tenth when tilted.
Great LakesAvengers Assemble! The GLA, a.k.a the Great Lakes X-Men and the Great Lakes Initiative. They debuted in the issue. They eventually inducted Squirrel Girl and Deadpool into their ranks.
No Iron Man spoilers. The comic book version of the Mandarin, late '80s. And yes, he's Asian.
Space cops! L.E.G.I.O.N. (Licensed Extra Governmental Interstellar Operatives Network) was led by Vril Dox, heir of Brainiac and ancestor of Brainiac 5. Only got to read it by the early 2000s; I was able to get about 30-plus random issues from different bargain bins.
JLA-Avengers, 10th anniversary.
"Iron Man 3's out, baby. Hot on the heels of the global hit, The Avengers! How's the DC Cinematic Universe doing, Bats?"
"June. Man of Steel. I expect anxiety attacks."
