Tempus' reason for existence was sorta rewritten in Avengers Forever.
The third chapter's title refers to "The Great Gatsby", an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel people are forced to read in high school.
Not to mention the movie version of The Great Gatsby (starring Redford and Farrow), which had just been released earlier in 1974--after months and months of hype.
