Notes

Continuity Notes[]

  • Dum Dum Dugan's real name, Timothy Aloysius Cadwallader Dugan, is first revealed in this issue.

Publication Notes[]

  • This issue contains a detailed blueprint of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier by artist Jim Steranko.
  • This issue contains a letters page, "Strange Mails". Letters are published from Bruce Long, Kenneth Sneyd, Karen Bower, and Bill Homah.
    • In his letter, Homah speculates that Stan Lee's real name is Irving Forbush - which is false, as Lee's real name was Stanley Martin Lieber, later legally changed to Lee; Forbush is an inner joke, not a real person, who later became a comical Marvel character. The answer given to Homah is more cryptic, but denies that Lee and Forbush are the same person.

Pop Culture and Historical Notes[]

  • Nick Fury makes reference that the Dreadnought has more ways to kill than Carter's has little pills. This is a reference to Carter's Little Pills, which were produced by Carter Products that heavily advertised their pills as a cure-all. The advertisements were so wide spread and abundant that the popular phrase was coined to mean something having more than Carter has pills.
