Committee's name as it was presented in the issue.

  • Committee to Regain America's Principles abbreviates to CRAP and originally the panel presenting its name lined up the first letters to be read like that. However Roy Thomas had it altered. The Committee's name is a reference to real-life Committee for the Re-Election of the President which was often mockingly abbreviated as CREEP.[1]
