Indexer Notes

Throughout this series, Merlyn's name is alternately spelled the classic way as "Merlin" with no rhyme or reason for the difference in spelling. The earth that Cap is sent to in this story was officially dubbed Earth 238 in Marvel's pantheon of alternate realities in the story "Rough Justice" which appears in issue #4 of this series.
