Indexer Notes

This issue incorporates pages from the never-published Steel, the Indestructible Man (DC, 1978 series) #6 re-inked, re-lettered, and partially re-drawn and re-written.

Steel first assumes the code name Commander Steel (per Anthony Durrant). Story continued from All-Star Squadron #8.
