Marvel had an odd way of looking at licensed properties back in the day. I guess we're lucky that "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" didn't get folded into Marvel Continuity.
See, now you're making me wish for a story where Indy had an adventure with the Golden Age Captain America, and I know that it'll never be. *sigh*
I would love
an Indiana Jones/Hellboy crossover.
You should look at the strange and twisted history of Death's Head for an idea of Marvel's integration its licenses into its universe. Death's Head started out in Transformers
, and they had to do some creative accounting to keep Hasbro from owning from the character. They wanted to bring Death's Head into the Marvel Universe proper; however, Death's Head was Transformer-sized, so a story in Doctor Who Magazine
had Death's Head shrunk down to human-size, and then after a series of adventures, the seventh Doctor dropped him off at Four Freedoms Plaza.
On a similar note, I've always wished that DC Comics had done some sort of Crisis on Infinite Earths
crossover with Star Trek
. That would have been awesome -- Kirk versus the Anti-Monitor!
