Yeah, Steve Englehart seemed to like pulling ultra-obscure comics references out of thin air. Like the issue of Green Lantern where one character said "You're as strong as an ox," and the response was a non-sequiter reference to the Z'Nox aliens from that Neil Adams issue of X-Men...

Was the Menomenee Falls (sp?) Gazette running when this issue of Avengers came out? Had they just run the Superman strip in question and had Englehart just read it while writing this issue? I dunno... just get me another drink.

I love ENglehart's work but obscure references like this make you wonder where the editor was that day.
