Easter Eggs: JLA/Avengers homage... JLA/Avengers

Welcome to another installment of Easter Eggs in Comics! Click here for the archive!

In the third issue of the 2003 crossover, JLA/Avengers, by Kurt Busiek and George Perez, history is rewritten multiple times, each time restructuring things so that the Justice League and the Avengers had always known each other. One of the adventures they supposedly had was a "Quest for the Chronal Egg," involving Kang and the Lord of Time.

That was actually the plotline for the planned 1983 JLA/Avengers crossover that didn't push through. That was supposed to be written by Gerry Conway and drawn by... George Perez! The only colored art for that crossover is below, so that panel above was actually Perez homaging himself!

I think this was a promo piece, but I don't think this was
the intended cover. Can someone confirm?

Got an Easter Egg for the Cube? Send it to!

Pretty positive Kang was planned for that original story.

Yes he was! No clue why I wrote that he wasn't. I'll edit it now.
