I mention the cover because it would have been cool to have Barry Windsor-Smith drawing Lockheed. Poor Lockheed is only on the cover, and Wozniak drew it.
Though it might be a good thing that he wasn’t in this issue. It isn’t very good. It seems to be that the creative team was trying to do Larry Hama a favor. He was writing the Nth Man ongoing, and he and his cast are a major part of this issue. It wouldn’t have me seeking out Nth Man comics.
Issue opens with Jamie Braddock, still in his white thong. He is as crazy as ever. Nigel comes in and is mean to the maid, Miss Collins. This makes Jamie mad and he forces Nigel to change into Vixen, but dressed like a tart. Jamie’s television set starts to glow.
Pinewood Studios. The police have called Excalibur to help with an investigation. A lady has crossed over into this world. In her world, Excalibur is a comic book. Captain Britain mentions how Excalibur has spent too long alternate Earth hopping. Which further adds to why I think Cross Time Caper lasted forever and not fun. Even the characters can’t reference it as a good time.
Rachel leaves, as the talk of Cross Time Caper reminds her that they lost Kitty. Kurt catches up to her. To make her laugh, they start dancing. A flash of light happens and Kurt and Rachel switch places and clothes with Nth Man and a lady, Colonel Novikova.
Kurt and Rachel meet Alfie O’Meagan. He is dressed as Galactus, like the cover, minus the headdress. Nth Man and the Colonel fights Excalibur. Jamie watches the whole thing.
The Colonel hates being dressed as Phoenix. Kurt hates his pants as there is no tail hole. Nth Man looks funny with how Kurt’s boots don’t fit him right.
Jamie provides a giant remote control and Kurt uses it to get everyone back to where they should be.
Issue ends with Jamie looking at a cover of Excalibur and an issue of Nth Man.
