Synopsis for "Into a Limbo Large and Broad..."Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


The "Chronoflash" images appearing in this issue are originally seen in/inspired by:

  • Avengers Vol 1 #58 (The classic "Even an Android Can Cry" teary-eyed pose from the Vision)
  • Avengers West Coast #50 (The "reunion" meeting of the Vision and the android Human Torch)
  • Marvel (Mystery) Comics #1 (Professor Phineas Horton studying human organs to replicate synthetic ones for the Torch's creation)
  • Avengers #134 (The Avengers getting led around by the "talking stick" Synchro-Staff)
  • Avengers Vol 1 #10 (This issue is the first clue the Avengers ever have to their initial encounter with Immortus. Due to a spell enacted by The Enchantress at the end of that issue, the entire events are erased from memory. The next time the Avengers meet Immortus (circa "The Celesital Madonna Saga"), he benefits from this blank slate- portraying himself more as a benevolent old wizard, omitting his penchant for playing divisive Machiavellian schemer. The entire scenario is gone into in greater detail in next issue)
  • Avengers #60 (Costume under the costume: Yellowjacket discovers he's really Golaith as the Ringmaster and his Circus of Crime crash the Pym-van Dyne wedding)
  • Avengers #161 (Wasp relays a story of Hank having a mental breakdown in his home lab)
  • Avengers #227 (Hank Pym in jail)


  • Rick Jones makes a reference to popping back to 1999 (the original year of this story's publication) for some White Castle hamburgers.
  • This comic was re-released as The Avengers United in September 2002.

  1. Nick Fury's actual appearance in this issue is entirely a point of speculation and conjecture. Despite his denying being a Space Phantom, it would certainly be a more plausible explanation toward the character's rapid succession of appearances- switching from World War II-era "Sgt. Fury" to fedora and trenchcoat CIA operative to his more famous SHIELD command uniform- in the space between panels. It is also possible that "Fury" could very well be a hallucination of the demoralized Captain America made manifest by Immortus's machines or the properties of Limbo. Another theory could be that given Fury's unnaturally-prolonged life and stunted physical aging brought about by the Infinity Formula, this is in fact a hitherto undocumented side-effect, anchoring some aspect of him to the nexus of all time.
