Notes

  • The Flying Submarines!:
    • Massacar is preying on "U.N." ships, carrying war supplies to embattled areas. "United World" is not mentioned.
    • Massacar gets hit in the head with a metal ornament thrown by Blackhawk, and falls into the ocean from the deck of his ship, and is not seen to re-surface. A villain named Massacar will appear, in Blackhawk #86, but is a different person.
    • Blackhawk gets shot down, for the 18th time,[1] by ground-based antiaircraft gunfire.
    • On page 7, panels 5 and 6, in the top of a lighthouse, Blackhawk re-invents the Bat-Signal, and summons the Blackhawks.
    • Hendrickson claims to have a 46-inch waistline. This is not reflected in the art.
    • It is implied but not stated that the Flying Submarines are Atlantean technology. Only three are seen in the story, and two are destroyed, with the third being captured by the Blackhawks.
    • At this story's end, the location of Atlantis is known to Blackhawk and his pals, also to surviving pirate/slaver crewmen, and also to rescued slave laborers. Apparently everybody kept quiet about it, because it is never mentioned again.
  • The Legion of the Doomed!:
    • Blackhawk gets head-konked unconscious, with a pistol butt. This is at least his fifty-seventh concussion.[2]
    • He also survives yet another plane crash, his twelfth. Over the course of his long combat career, Blackhawk survived at least seventeen aircraft crashes.[3]
    • Andre gets head-konked unconscious, with a blackjack. This is at least his thirteenth concussion.[4]
    • Being a Blackhawk is dangerous.
  • The Ghost of Blackhawk Island!:
    • The Reds definitely know where Blackhawk Island is.
    • Chop Chop definitely can fly a Lockheed F-90.
  • Also featured in this issue of Blackhawk was: "Top Secret" (text story)
