- The Secret Conquest of the Earth:
- The JSA story seems have no nexus in continuity. 7 JSAers were in suspended animation during one year - but how to fit this story between the respective adventures of each of the heroes? Wonder Woman and Green Lantern stories were not interrupted. Only America vs. the Justice Society Vol 1 4 makes reference to this story.
- The Great South-American country might be Argentina; this is the greatest Spanish-speaking country in South America (Brazil speaks Portuguese).
- The Northern part of Africa seems be Egypt or Sudan (Sudan is the country with most pyramids in the world.)
- The Last Man on Earth
- This story implies that time forms a cycle, in which the end of the times and the beginning of the times are linked; then, time-travel to the future in a extremely accelerated rate would invariably take the traveler to the past.
