[[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.

* One of the most famous famous school shootings was the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck!_The_Carbine_High_Massacre Combine High massacre]], which was done by Derik Harris and Derwin Klebold, a pair of Hynkel fanatics. This act having been influenced by the actions of [[Literature/{{Rage}} another deranged student]].

** [[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.

* [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Queen Elsa of Arendelle]] was a distant descendant of another infamous Scandinavian monarch who also possessed [[AnIcePerson power over the Winter winds]]; her real name has long since been lost to history, and she's now known only by the moniker "Literature/TheSnowQueen". The most famous of Elsa's known descendants is the founding ComicBook/XMen member [[ComicBook/{{Iceman}} Robert "Bobby" Drake]], one of the few men in the royal bloodline ever to inherit ice powers; he's related to the family through his famous ancestor UsefulNotes/SirFrancisDrake, who fell in love with one of the Princesses of Arendelle when he visited the kingdom during one of his many voyages.

* Alternatively Apple could become Aperture Science. The timelines don't quite work out, but both companies, founded by gaunt, eccentrically brilliant men who died before their time because of a painfully slow disease, have a fondness for manufacturing powerful computers with user friendly, smooth, white designs. After all, what's Siri for the [=i=]Phone but a less powerful, less homicidal version of GLADOS?
