Comic Book Six Degrees: Miss Fury to Deathcry

I name two comic book characters. You then have to connect the two using only shared appearances in comic books (official appearances in comics only - no cameos like Terry Austin sneaking Popeye into the background of a panel and no outside comic book appearances, like cartoons and the like). You have to do so using less than six comics total. Covers and pin-ups do not count - only actual appearances in the same comic book story (so it doesn't count if they each appeared in separate stories inside the same anthology). Mythological characters, public domain characters (other than public domain comic book characters, they're free game) and real people (by the way, unless a fake name is used for a real person, like Ronald Raygun or whatever, you can use the person even if they are not officially named in the comic) are unique to their own comic book appearances (so DC's Thor is different than Marvel's Thor, DC's Ronald Reagan is different from Marvel's Ronald Reagan, etc.). But a licensed character is the same in all of their various comic book companies (so the Marvel Red Sonja is the same as the Dynamite Red Sonja) and approved appearances by a real person can go across comic book companies, as well (so, for instance, you can use Marv Wolfman from his Teen Titans appearance to connect with Marv Wolfman in his Fantastic Four appearance). Approval tends to be the key (except for public figures, of course).

Every week, whoever connects the two characters in the least amount of turns gets to pick the next week's match (in the event of a tie, the winner is chosen randomly). Last week was X-O Manowar to X-Wing Rogue Leader (Wedge Antilles). A few people got it in five moves. The original fellow who I randomly picked as the winner never got back to me with his challenge, though, so I had to go to a back-up. Eric Henry was one of the people who got it in five moves, and since Eric had a few suggestions that I never used (since he did not win that week), I just chose one his old suggestions. First, here is how Eric connected the two...

X-O Manowar was in "X-O Manowar/Iron Man: In Heavy Metal" with Baron Zemo

Baron Zemo was in "Thunderbolts Presents: Zemo: Born Better" #3 with Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler was in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" with Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones was in "Star Wars Tales" #19 with Chewbacca

Chewbacca was in "Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron" #28 with Wege Antilles

Eric's challenge is...

Whoever connects the two characters in the least amount of comics gets to pick the connection for next time around (I'll pick a random winner in the event of a tie)!

Remember, only authorized appearances in comic books count (for instance, all the Marvel characters in Savage Dragon/Destroyer Duck do not count)!
