Excalibur

This seems to have been one of Marvel's second-string titles. In issues 18 and 19 from the beginning of 1990, Excalibur was running a story-arc called "The Cross-Time Caper", in which a dimension-leaping version of Captain Britain's older sibling, Jamie Braddock, wreaks havoc.

Double Impact

 

Double Impact was a creation of Cuban-American artist Ricky Carralero, begun as a comic series in 1994. "China" (Sandra Vasquez, often wearing a red headband) and "Jazz" (Elizabeth Rodriguez) are code-named mercernaries in the present-day world, working for the agency Inside Central Intelligence. Published through High Impact Comics, the book ran until about 1997, then was revived in '99 as a story set in 2069 with genetically-engineered clones of the original team.
