(Avengers I#200 (fb) - BTS) - Raoul Kramer owned a small candystore on Wall Street, which he opened up early in the morning to "sell the Dow Jones bigwigs their Milky Ways and their Times".

(Avengers I#200 - BTS) - Early one morning, even as Kramer was making his way to Wall Street on the subway, the "birth" of Limbo native Marcus Immortus started to warp the laws of time and space.

(Avengers I#200) - Kramer arrived at the Wall Street station, carrying groceries and grumbling about having nothing else to look forward to than yet another day of work, selling candy for rapidly devaluating dollars. As he exited the station, he thought to himself that you'd think that in a town the size of New York, you'd expect something unusual to happen every now and again. As he emerged from the underground station, he was stunned to find he had somehow wandered into late 19th century Wall Street. He dropped his groceries in astonishment, even as horse drawn carriages rolled across the cobblestone streets (see comments).

Comments: Created by David Michelinie (writer), George Perez (pencils), Dan Green (inks).

During his Avengers days, David Michelinie tended to name bit players and seemingly random bystanders. A cute, innocent touch and if nothing else, it makes them seem more real. It's not been revealed whatever became of Raoul Kramer: was that historical piece of Wall Street merely something that briefly merged with the modern day or did he actually wander into the 19th century? And if so, did he ever get himself out in time?
