First mention of Star Trek in the MU

Post by wolframbane » Mon Dec 14, 2009 2:30 am

In the X-Men/Star Trek crossovers, it was revealed that the Star Trek Universe is a parallel universe to the MU. Is anyone aware of the earliest reference to Star Trek itself in the Marvel Universe (such as perhaps a tongue in cheek reference to Beast as "Dr. McCoy")?

Yes, I believe Hank has been referred to as "Dr. McCoy" and even "Bones", by Iceman if I remember correctly. I'll have to do a whole lot o' reading to find it again though. Sometime in the '90s. Possibly around the Onslaught period.

I'm sure there would have been references made during the time the show was on the air -- 1966-1969.

Hank didn't get his doctorate until after he left the X-Men and began working for Brand Corp., so the earliest reference to him as "Dr. McCoy" or "Bones" would have been his Amazing Adventures stories. I'll have to read those issues again...

Wolframbane's asking about the very first reference OF ANY SORT to Star Trek in the MU -- not just the first "Dr. McCoy" joke.
