Re: Shakespearean English
Alan Moore took a British hero called Captain Britain and made him part of the Captain Britain Corps, a group of alternate universe versions of himself who dealt with problems between parallel universes and such. As a reference for which universe was the "real" Marvel universe--i.e. the one that the main Captain Britain came from and the one that all of Marvel's comics at the time took place in--he numbered it 616.
