      The Golden Age ETERNALS[ Red Raven Comics#1---Mercury story][Captain America Comics#1--Hurricane story][Daring Mystery Comics#6--Marvel Boy story] could have formed the UNI-MIND.Plus JOHNNY BLAKE[All-Winners Comics#1(sum/1941)All-Winners --story:he wished he could meet the Heroes of Marvel Comics and gets his wish] could be like L.R. SKIP COLLINS[ http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/skipco.htm ].

      This entire series could have been done like MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE#21(11/1976)--THING/HUMAN TORCH(Storm)/DOC SAVAGE team-up that started in 2 different time periods and ended up in the same one.

      Avenger/Invaders#10 could have IMITATED Giant-Size X-Men#1(5/1975) and had the AVENGERS & INVADERS team-up with TIMELY COMICS' UNOFFICIAL HEROES[ http://www.marvel.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=147148 ]---plus these UNOFFICIAL TIMELY COMICS HEROES:LAO- CHUNG[ All-Select Comics#8(sum/1945)Captain America story--check the Masterlist www.marvunapp.com for his powers ];GHOST RIDER[Marvel Mystery Comics#31(5/1942)Terry Vance story ];LAI-SON( goddess of the seas )[Captain America Comics#16(7/1942)Captain America story--check Masterlist ];MABU THE ELEPHANT BOY[Marvel Mystery Comics#36(10/1942)Sub-Mariner story];LYANDER[Captain America Comics#40(7/1944)Captain America story---see Masterlist ];GHOST OF DUKE HARMON[Marvel Mystery Comics#75(8/1946)Angel story and ancestor];GORILLA-MAN[Sub-Mariner Comics#19(spr/1943)Angel story];plus TIMELY COMICS SORCERERS---CIGAM( magic backwards )[Marvel Mystery Comics#48(10/1943)Jimmy Jupiter story];MENALAOS( Timely's SHAZAM )[USA Comics#5(sum/1942)ROKO THE AMAZING( Timely's Captain Marvel( Batson )]; low-level sorcerer LEANDER JONES[Young Allies#10(win/1943-1944)Young Allies story---father of WHITEWASH JONES and possible father of Howling Commando GABE JONES and Whizzer sidekick SLOW-MOTION JONES];PAUL NORTH( stage magician )[USA Comics#3(1/1942)"Quicker than the eye"--story];RUNNING ELK( Blackfoot Medicine-Man )[Mystic Comics#5(4/1941)Black Marvel story];and the "Witch Doctor"[Marvel Mystery Comics#26(12/41)Ka-Zar story--he gave Ka-Zar his tribe's Potion for Super-Strength ]. Plus TIMELY COMICS soldiers could have been used instead of the HOWLING COMMANDOS:The COMMANDOS[Captain America Comics#14(5/1942)text story--British Commandos];SARGE[Captain America Comics#38(5/1944)text story];plus TIMELY CHARACTERS---( "****-Buster" )DOUG JOHNSON,BREEZE BARTON( possible relative of Hawkeye/Ronin ),SGT.DIX and JEEP JONES.

      They could have combined the AVENGERS/DEFENDERS WAR[ Avengers#115-118/Defenders vol.1#8-11 ] with WAR OF THE SUPER-VILLAINS[Iron Man vol.1#70--79] and the original SECRET WARS. TIMELY COMICS has OBJECTS OF POWER---BOOK OF THOTH[Captain America Comics#20(11/1942)Captain America story--The Egyptian Spawn Of The Witch-Queen];BOOK OF BLACK MAGIC[Marvel Mystery Comics#25(11/1941)Vision story];3 BOOKS OF MAGIC[Marvel Mystery Comics#22(8/1941)Vision story---also has first unnamed appearance of the SAVAGE LAND ];BLACK CARLO'S MAGIC CRYSTAL OF DEATH( Crystal Ball)[USA Comics#3(1/1942)Captain Terror story]. Plus OBJECTS that can be given POWER----RUBY OF THE NILE[Captain America Comics#8(11/1941)Captain America story--I call it the RUBY OF RA because it was removed from a carving on the Pharaoh's sarcophagus of the Egyptian Sun-God RA]; PHARAOH'S EYE[Marvel Mystery Comics#30(4/1942)Terry Vance story];CLEOPATRA'S DIAMOND,TREASURE OF KING TUT & SARCOPHAGUS[Captain America Comics#3(5/1941)Captain America vs. Butterfly story];GREEN DIAMOND[Marvel Mystery Comics#23(9/1941)Terry Vance story];BLOOD RUBY OF CHUNG[Mystic Comics#1(3/1940)Dakor story];DIAMOND OF JUBA[USA Comics#4(5/1942)text story],etc.

      Before I ran out of time I was going to point out where to find JIMMIE AND JACKIE[Mystic Comics#10(8/1942)"World Of Wonder " story]---they live in MAGIC CITY and go to WONDER WOODS to find Magic objects---like the TIME controlling HOUR GLASS( maybe they could be the HIRO and ANDO of Timely Comics ). As for the entire AVENGERS/INVADERS series we deserved BETTER.When Kurt Busiek did JLA/AVENGERS#1&3/AVENGERS/JLA#2&4 he obviously was influenced by the AVENGERS/DEFENDERS WAR[Avengers#115(9/1973)-118(12/1973)/Defenders#8(9/1973)-11(12/1973)],the Grandmaster's first appearance[Avengers#69(10/1969)-71(11/1969)],Marvel Super-Heroes Contest Of Champions#1(6/1982)-3(8/1982) and his own work in AVENGERS vol.3#1(2/1998)-3(4/1998) which has similarities with NEW WARRIORS#11(5/1991)-13(7/1991)----these are just some examples of what COULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN AVENGERS/INVADERS. To do AVENGERS/DEFENDERS WAR using the AVENGERS/LIBERTY LEGION( made up of all the TIMELY HEROES http://www.geocities.com/ratmmjess/gaguide.html ]----using the UNNAMED CRIMINAL in the VISION story[Marvel Mystery Comics#23(9/1941)] as LOKI's replacement and MEPHISTO taking the place of DORMAMMU.

      The COSMIC CUBE could be countered by SUPER-SLAVE[ http://www.geocities.com/jjnevins/slave.html ] or GENIE[ Young Allies#7(4/1943)Tommy Tyme story] or ALADDIN'S GENIE[Young Allies#13(sum/1944)Tommy Tyme story][ Black Panther vol.1#1( 1/1977) http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/solofrog.htm ] or TOMMY TYME[ http://www.geocities.com/jjnevins/tyme.html ] who could have TIME TRAVELED to prevent the RED SKULL from gaining the COSMIC CUBE( so could JIMMIE AND JACKIE time travel using Hour Glass ).

      This series has been waaaaaay under-appreciated. I'd love to see Ross and/or Krueger take the helm at the Hulk title.
