So, recently All New X-Men #1 came out, and it featured a sequence of pages that serve to transplant an old sequence from 60s X-Men # 8, 'The Uncanny Threat of Unus the Untouchable', at the start of which an angry Hank McCoy tells Scott Summers that he wishes to quit the X-Men after he and Iceman were attacked by a frenzied crowd.
The preview pages of this sequence can be found here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...eview&id=14172
Now this part of X-Men #8 happens to be one of my favourite pages in early X-Men (because it was the first time anti-mutant feelings had been portrayed in such a vicious way, and this reaction was something I didn't expect from Hank).
While I'm not up-to-date on current comic books, I still occasionally browse the previews. And when I first saw these two pages of All-New X-Men, I was skeptical for how the dialogue had been changed and expanded, and perhaps also toward the (seemingly) gratuitous 'damn' that was inserted. But laying the original comic side by side with the re-imagining, I must say it pays fine homage to Stan Lee's dialogue, while tweaking it just enough to be appropriate for current times, and expanding four panels into two pages. And it stays true to the original source well enough.
So I was wondering: do you know of anywhere in comics of the Big Two's universes where this has been done before? That, perhaps a character would travel back in time and go back to a familiar issue, or that there would be a flashback that re-uses dialogue and artwork from past issues?
