Jasper Sitwell last seen in a SHIELD episode in STRANGE TALES #159 (August 1967). Self-Orbiting Attack Craft last seen in NICK FURY, AGENT OF SHIELD #2 (July 1968). Third time Hate-Monger appears in this story; it's clearly not Adolph Hitler this time, as he has no moustache. Hate-Monger's scheme of germ-induced mass murder, provoking a nuclear war and a new population riding out the holocaust aboard a space station was mirrored to varying degrees in the plots of the 007 films THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (1977) and MOONRAKER (1979).
