  • The unmasking is referred to in a flashback of Sensational Spider-Man #28
  • The unmasking is shown in a flashback in Amazing Spider-Man #87
  • On Page 14, Panel 5, in an effort to attract Spider-Man, Dr. Octopus tips over a sign advertising Leedit, Inc. This is an obvious nod to Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko (the KO still sounds like CO, and if you're referring to companies, a synonom for CO is Inc.)
  • It's ironic how immediatley after Peter makes a joke about talking to Flash using 1 syllable words, Liz says the next sentence to Flash using nothing but one syllable words!
