Subj: Neat minor continuity FF/Hulk/Golden Age tie-in from Captain America: Patriot

Just was re-reading the last issue of the Captain America: Patriot mini series and I realized that a new minor link between the Golden Age, FF, and Incredible Hulk was made in the last few couple of pages:
Jeffrey Mace, the third Captain America settles down with his crimefighting partner Betsy Ross/Golden Girl. Mace notes in an article he's writing circa 1953 that they don't have children but his wife's nephew Thad (probably Thaddeus Ross, a.k.a. Thunderbolt Ross a.k.a. Red Hulk) is often over playing war with neighborhood kid Franklin Storm (father, of course, of Sue and Johnny Storm).

With Marvel's sliding time scale, this probably won't stick (and, of course, was impossible when the Fantastic Four debuted.. back then, Gen.Ross could've argueably been the Golden Girl's older brother or cousin) but right now, the ages of the characters nicely synch up. It appears that the time with his aunt must've been significant to name his only daughter after her.
