Trivia[]

  • For reasons best known to the anonymous author, in this first comic story, Max continually calls the Chief "Control", while 99 calls Max "Chief".
  • The central plot point of a bald-headed men's convention comes some two years before the KAOS League of Bald-Headed Men is introduced in the television episode "Diamonds Are a Spy's Best Friend".

Reality Check[]

  • The second part subtitle, "It's a Gas!" is a play on the expression popularized in the Jazz Age.
