What If They Did An Homage!
It didn't dawn on me until I'd stared at it for a bit that the cover to Avengers/Invaders #12 and the one used for the trade was an homage/swipe of the iconic Gil "Sugar Lips" Kane cover for What If? #4 which gave us something of a secret origin for Cap and others.
Cool beans! Though I'm not sure how Wolverine might react if he knew he was taking the spot of the Whizzer.
This cover by Jack "King" Kirby also gets a Ross re-do.
And this cover for the third issue featuring the Namors was tickling my memory too.
I finally realized its source must be this illustration by "Wild" Bill Everett.
