Notes

  • Bryndon Smith apparently dies in this issue; however, this story takes place shortly after the 1986 atomic war; Bryndon appeared alive in 1990 (Strange Adventures Vol 1 132), thus we could conclude that he was only apparently dead and returned under unexplained circumstances. However, in DC Comics Presents Vol 1 57, Gardner Grayle confirms his death. Yet, that was an Earth-86 virtual reality analogue on Grayle's mind. During Convergence, Bryndon is seen alive, but it can be due Telos has extracted Durvale (Knights' city) from its time before Bryndon's death. Finally, we can see 6 Atomic Knights in DC Holiday Special 2017 Vol 1 1, but Bryndon, if among them, is unnamed. Then, judge for yourself whether Bryndon died or not.
  • The presence of Dr. Skuba in this issue, a character from OMAC series, give clues that OMAC can exist in this universe too.
  • Durvale is located west of Lake Ontario in this issue, which makes it a Canadian city.. In previous Atomic Knights' adventures, Durvale had only loosely defined location. Although Canada has a city named London, the London in this story is really the English city.
