Conan's Past Crossovers With the Marvel Universe

In the second volume of What If...?, Glenn Herdling, Gary Kwapisz, Ian Akin and Brian Garvey told a clever tale in #16 that shows Wolverine actually thrown into the past during the fight on the moon in X-Men #137 (he was in the Watcher's home on the moon in that original issue). He meets Red Sonja and falls in love with her because she reminds him of Jean Grey. When Conan seemingly hurts Sonja, Wolverine goes nuts...

In the end, Conan goes back to Wolverine's time while Wolverine remains in the past and ultimately marries Red Sonja...

Finally, in the only outright "Conan interacts with modern characters from the main Marvel Universe" story (Conan briefly cameos in Thor Corps #3, but interacts with just a nameless astronaut), Conan is brought into the future by Zarrko the Tomorrow Man and the barbarian tangles with Ant-Man in Fantastic Four #405 (by Tom DeFalco, Paul Ryan and Danny Bulanadi)...

I look forward to Conan being brought to the future in an upcoming issue of Avengers: No Road Home!
