** Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Moore was already planning this part back when ''The Black Dossier'' came out. The first time I read that one, I found myself wondering why the 1950s "M" didn't look anything like OrsonWelles, since we're told that [[Film/TheThirdMan Harry Lime]] was one of his many alter-egos. But if he was already planning on adding ''another'' famous OrsonWelles character in a future volume, it makes sense.

There must be some way of working OrsonWelles' ''War of the Worlds'' broadcast into the ''League'' universe in some way. Now Charles Foster Kane is going to play a big role in ''Heart of Ice'', so wouldn't he be the best guy to work it in? Maybe he's a history buff who's fascinated by the Mollusc invasion, and he'll do an "educational" radio broadcast about it that'll make everybody think they've returned. Or maybe he'll intentionally try to convince the world that they're back as part of some EvilPlan. Spin it any way you want. It could work.

[[WMG: The world of the League is actually the Land of Fiction from the [[Franchise/DoctorWho Second Doctor]] serial "The Mind Robber"]]
Pretty strait forward. Note that when the Doctor bumped into Lemuel Gulliver, he was incapable of realizing that his world was "unreal"- he couldn't perceive the Master's robot guards. So clearly the whole League-verse is just a [[TechnoBabble constructed reality located adjacent]] to the Whoniverse, and none of the fictional inhabitants notice any of it. If you need any further proof, the First and Eleventh doctors can be seen in Century: 2009, looking as if they're involved in something serious- definitely getting involved in some new Land of Fiction- oriented adventure.

** [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids You expect an anarchist, anti-monarchist and anti-imperialist like Alan Moore]] (he who demonized Queen Victoria) to make that a straight 1:1 lift on that material? Queen Elsa is a Frost Giantess who fought and died during Ragnarok (which Orlando witnessed during the Book of Orlando section in ''The Black Dossier'')? The version of Frozen and Snow Queen we know is merely propaganda come years later to glorify monarchy and imperialism, one of whose agents is a descendant of [[Disney/TheSorcerorsApprentice the Bavarian Sorceror Yensid]] who converted his serfs into brooms to do his bidding and created a hideous mutant rodent-human hybrid with his alchemical experiments. Said descendant went to America and used alchemical experiments to create a propaganda [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory empire of joy]]. As for the X-Men, they like other superheroes are victims of MKULTRA and agents of the FBI sent to be AgentProvocateur in underground gay and anti-racist movements (much like Professor X was a FBI agent in the first comics[[note]]And Moore is no fan of the X-men[[/note]]). In this version, Bobby Drake could be Sir Francis Drake's descendant. The original Francis Drake was a slaveowner and participant of the Rathlin Island massacre and Moore would see his narc-snitch descendant as a chip of the old block.
