Indexer Notes

Part 1; Galtry (Intro; first name Nicholas given in #101) addresses Beast Boy as "Craig" in this story and only this one, even though Jill called him Gar in the previous issue. New Teen Titans (1980 series) would establish that this is short for "Garfield." The character's last name "Logan" is first given--in passing, as if it is nothing new--in DP #102. Is he in full "Craig Garfield Logan," and Galtry did not realize that the boy went by his middle name until just after the events of #100?

Indexer Notes

Most of this story was inserted as a flashback into the reprint of the series finale, "Robotmaker Must Die" in The Brave and the Bold (1955 series) #102, June-July 1972.

This story's telling of Robotman's early life directly contradicts the DP origin story in My Greatest Adventure (1955 series) #80.
