With Marvel redeeming themselves on a lot of fronts last week, I don't know how this was missed.
The Runaways pay a visit to the Avenger's Academy in order to bring back Old Lace, who was last seen in another dimension/time, sent away to heal (see last issue).

I found it to be another pleasant surprise.

... understanding and tolerance.

The Academy teachers don't want to force the Runaways to do anything they don't want to, but there is the issue of the two pre-teens who are part of the group, who anyone in their right mind would know that they are too young for this kind of life.

So a fight breaks out in the prehistoric past, as to who should raise Molly and Klara of the Runaways.

Needless to say, the youth ally with each other against the Pym and Tigra, and they decide to talk about their differences rather than beat each other's brains in.

And since talking isn't getting the job done, we come to magic.

An understanding/"walk in our shoes"/shared experiences spell gives everyone access to their different experiences and perspectives. The Academy teachers grant the girls permission to stay with the Runaways, with a few caveats (concerning the girls education and what not).

So the teams part ways, and we see love blossom for two members of the teams.

Awwwww.... feel the love.

Chase is just asking for trouble, isn't he?

Chase + Time Machine idea is kind of off since Chase actually gave up the chance to use Gert's parents time machine to undo her death back in Joss Whedon's run on the comic.

And trying to change the past via Time Travel in the Marvel verse is iffy at best. Some people can make it work for them like Kang the Conquerer, others can't like oddly enough, Kang again (teenage Kang).

Guess he's bolstered by the fact he saved Old Lace here with time travel.

Old Lace wasn't saved by time travel. It was a combination magic, a special diet and interdimensional portals.

It was all needlessly complicated.

Well she kinda was. She was trapped in the past until the Runaway Academy folks picked her up.

I dunno, I still say that Nico's DEM spell was more responsible for bringing back Old Lace. At least more so than Time Travel. And it shouldn't be enough to convince Chase to try time travel yet again.

Plus it was the ancient past of the alternate dimension type place where they created Reptil's amulet thing and he's the prophetic messiah. Time travel doesn't seem all that important in relation to all that other crap.

And btw how about the fact that somehow Chase and Old Lace's empathic bond is able to transverse time and space and dimensions and he could tell she was alive through it.

Like I said, it was all ridiculous. Even by comic book standards.

That wasn't that past, Old Lace was in Dinoworld, that's Devil Dinosaur's dimension. Hence why we saw Devil Dinosaur there.
