Can Doom take over the world in 4 minutes? What about Galactus? Etc.
B/c if you've really got a time machine, you could easily plot it to come back 1 minute later, or the same time, etc. But here the pick is 4...I really hope there's something coming from that other than just being cute with the book's title number.
