WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Old Man Hawkeye #6 by Ethan Sacks, Marco Checchetto, Andres Mossa and VC's Joe Caramagna, in stores now.
The world of "Old Man Logan" was introduced by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven in their 2008 run on Marvel's Wolverine series. It was a dark alternate future where most of the world's heroes -- the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, etc. -- had all been brutally murdered by the supervillains of the world in a coordinated attack. We didn't know much of the past of this world other than it was marred by unspeakable horrors, and by all accounts, its past could easily have been the current Marvel Universe's present.
In this week's Old Man Hawkeye #6, thanks to a brief flashback sequence, we learn that while the OML past is similar to that of the regular Marvel Universe, there are actually some differences in this alternate reality. Case in point: the Avengers Tower of this universe looks exactly like the one from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The design is virtually identical to the tower audiences have come to know on the big screen, from the angled high-rise to the window-covered belly. The Avengers logo is identically positioned, as is the Quinjet landing pad. It's a design that is instantly recognizable as wholly different from the Avengers Tower of the prime Marvel Universe.
The world of Old Man Logan debuted at the same time as the MCU, in 2008, though the big screen version of Avengers Tower wouldn't actually take on its now iconic look until 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, three years later, it makes the jump to comics, though this isn't to say the OML future is the future of the MCU... right?
