Indexer Notes

The title page is a spoof of the movie poster for Forrest Gump, a movie where Tom Hank's character was cleverly edited into historical footage; In much the same way, Deadpool, Al and a young Weasel are drawn into the events of Amazing Spider-Man (Marvel, 1963 series) #47 for the "past" sequences of this story.
