- "The Maze" features the Psions, later to become major antagonists to the Omega Men. The two Psions in this story, Spafon and Squatront, briefly reappear in Tales of the New Teen Titans #4. Their names are references to "Spa-fon!" and "Squa-tront!", two alien curse-words from several EC Comics that became a recurring in-joke in science-fiction and comics fandom in the 1950s and '60s.
