Indexer Notes

Secret Wars II Crossover; Cont from Web of Spider-Man (Marvel, 1985 series) #6; Story takes place between Secret Wars (Marvel, 1985 series) #2 and 3; One of the soldiers directing the cleanup of the golden building is simply referred to as "Sergeant" in the story but is pretty clearly intended to be Duke of the G.I. Joe team.
