Notes Continuity Notes
Spencer Smyth seeks revenge against Jameson and Spider-Man because the isotopes used to make his Spider-Slayers gave him terminal cancer. These Spider-Slayers were made in Amazing Spider-Man #28, 58, and 105-107.
The flashback where John is put in cryogenic suspension happens shortly after John's exile from the moon that occurred in Marvel Premiere #45-46 and his last battle with Spider-Man in Marvel Team-Up #36-37.
The cover stories in the Daily Bugle being read by J.K. Clayton are his battle with Jigsaw (Amazing Spider-Man #188.
The flashback showing a young John Jameson, the boy is wearing a t-shirt that says "I Like Ike". This should be considered a topical reference per the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616. Generally speaking, this reference is meant to signify that this flashback happens roughly 27 years prior to this story. This would make John Jameson between the ages of 30 and 35 during this story.
Although Jonah mentions how his wife died, he states that she "passed on". In reality, as explained in Marvel Holiday Special #2004, she was actually killed by a mugger.
John Jameson disappears here, he is seen again in a microverse in Savage She-Hulk #13-14.
