In Teen Titans Spotlight no. 11, cover-dated June 1987, by RJM Lofficier and Joe Orlando, the Brotherhood of Evil somehow find their way into an alternate earth that has been taken over by mutated creatures after a nuclear holocaust. They're forced to be on the side of the good guys for a while, and that's where they meet a guy named Tin.
Later on, Tin tells them the tale of his planet's sordid history, a tale that goes back all the way to when he was a teenager, and he had some very recognizable friends.
Ringing a bell yet?
I'll wait for you to think about it.
Okay, give up?
Yep, "Tin" and friends are Herge's Tintin, Captain, and the Professor!
