  • Page 4 shows the revival of Namor by the Human Torch (Johnny Storm) in the Silver Age and his first battle with the Fantastic Four. All the events depicted in panels 1-3 were originally shown in Fantastic Four #4. The plot involved Johnny Storm finding Namor a homeless man with amnesia and revives him. Namor then attacked New York by attacking it with sea monster Giganto. He was defeated by the Fantastic Four.
  • The body shot of Namor between Pages 4 & 5 depict him in a special uniform he had to wear circa Sub-Mariner #67 in which Namor had to wear a specially designed costume to survive after being exposed to a nerve gas. Picture in the background of this panel is the face of Dr. Doom (Victor Von Doom, Fantastic Four #5) In the narrative X-51 mentions that Namor and Dr. Doom had a "Super-Villain Team-Up", this is reference to the series "Super-Villain Team-Up", first issue being Giant-Size Super-Villain Team-Up #1. The first series of stories focused on a long running team up between Namor and Dr. Doom.
  • Page 12: The Vibranium compound that Reed Richards speaks of was first mentioned in Fantastic Four #52, it is originally found in a mound located in the African nation of Wakanda.
  • Page 14-15: The beings encased in Vibranium in space are identified as the Eternals, a race of beings that once inhabited Earth. They first appeared in Eternals #1. They were the Celestials second experiment on man which created these god like beings. They were originally mistaken to be the gods of Greek mythology due to their uncanny resemblance to those aforementioned* same gods.
  • Page 21: The chair behind the Skull is the hover chair once belonging to MODOK (Mechanical Organism Designed Only for Killing, Tales of Suspense #94) Behind the chair we see The Wizard (Bentley Whittman, Strange Tales #102) and Spiders Man (this is his first appearance, real name unknown) The quote at the end of the story is by English poet John Milton (1608-1674) quoting his poem "Samson Agonistes" (meaning Samson the agonist) which was a free verse poem originally published in 1671. The poem is a blank verse tragedy. Milton was best known for his poem Paradise Lost.
