The Grim Adventures of... The Avengers?

I have a copy of The Last Avengers Story. (henceforth "TLAS") [The Avengers is a comic book super hero group, with a roster that includes or included the Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America.] It's in two parts, but I only have the first issue. I got it at a bargain from a Booksale stand, I think, and I have since looked for the second issue, but haven't found one. So I continued looking for it, in digital form now, however, and on the 'Net. This morning I did so again. And I stumbled upon a website summarizing the story.

[This reminds me... I'm waiting for the next Marvel movies: on Thor and Captain America. Initially, although I was expecting that Marvel is setting things up for one of the biggest -- if not THE biggest -- movie event in human history (more on this later), I didn't see the pattern; but I've now realized that they're really setting up the stage for The Avengers on the silver screen. Hopefully it would be on IMAX 3D. Wow. with the right crew, it would truly be historical. Of Star Wars and Matrix standards]

[see Avengers on Wikipedia; see Avengers on their official Marvel website]

Now, I also watch the Cartoon Network, and one of my favorites was The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. It's a story of "Happy-go lucky Billy and cynical Mandy [who] become best friends with the Grim Reaper after winning an otherworldly limbo contest against the messenger of Death."

Now, what's with this blog entry? Well, I learned through Jay's Notes on the TLAS summary I've mentioned earlier that "The Grim Reaper is actually Billy, the other twin of the Scarlet Witch and Vision.**"
In TLAS, the Grim Reaper is a main villain. That certain Billy in the Marvel Universe is William "Billy" Kaplan, a.k.a. Wiccan, twin brother of Thomas Shepherd, son of separated Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) and Vision.

Billy the Grim Reaper. Hmmm...?

**Scarlet Witch and Vision = take note that there are three versions of Scarlet Witch and two versions of Vision based on my research on the Marvel website. See here: Marvel Universe characters list Q-R (for "Scarlet Witch") and U-W (for "Vision")
