Wow. To think someone as good as John Byrne would actually plagiate himself... Kind of makes me think differrently about the guy :S

Hmm, I don't think of it so much as plagiarism as I do a self-homage and an in-joke: note how Byrne used specific members of the LSH in the story whose powers mirrored those of the FF in the earlier issue.

That's hilarious. I love Byrne.
