Indexer Notes

The next All-Winners Squad story is in What If? (Marvel, 1977 series) #4, which occurs chronologically before this one and retroactively establishes that the post-war Captain America and Bucky here are Jeff Mace (a.k.a. The Patriot) and Fred Davis. The next chronological appearance of the All-Winners Squad, Future Man and Madame Death is in All Winners Comics 70th Anniversary Special (Marvel, 2009 Series) #1.
