Rick Jones is a Green Lama fan?

Apparently, when he was a (smaller) kid, fictional fanboy and all-around, all-purpose Marvel sidekick, Rick Jones, found a barrel full of old comic books that he read until they fell apart (Avengers #92, 1972). And, apparently, in addition to old Marvel standbys like Captain America, Sub-Mariner, and Human Torch, Rick Jones was a fan of the Green Lama -- or at least Rick Jones's floating, glowing head was a fan of the Green Lama:

See? There's the Lama, right there in the lower right-hand corner! And in the opposite corner is the Fighting Yank. Well, waddaya know!

Reckon Rick Jones is reading Project Superpowers these days? ;-)

The Green Lama?

'If we can just step out of our literal minds for one moment! I know I speak in a british accent and there isn't a lot of blue in the costume but if you know your history it makes perfect sense...'

The Cyan Llama?

Perhaps he's sad?

Well, there's also a blue Torch.

Geez, that sounds like the name of a strip club or something.
