The identifications of Shadow Lass and Night Girl are switched. Invisible Kid does not actually appear, but is identified, so presumably he was there, but invisible. An unidentified Legionnaire is previewed becoming a Green Lantern.

Indexer Notes

There are many homages to the first story of the Earth 1 Mon-El (from Superboy #89) in this story (particulary images on page 8). There is even a nod to post-crisis Valor (this Daxam circles the sun Valor).
