Notes Continuity Notes:
This story suggests that Killraven's world is the future of Earth-616. It is in fact, an alternate future of Earth-691.
Killraven recounts his long-running battle with the Martian Masters, which began in Amazing Adventures Vol 2 #18.
While hallucinating, Killraven recounts how Volcana Ash had gone looking for her sister. That happened in Amazing Adventures Vol 2 #31.
Spider-Man's hallucination is focused on the tragedies in his life. Here are some of his facts:
He is attacked by a phantom of the Green Goblin. Peter mentions how the original Green Goblin, Norman Osborn, is dead. Norman seemingly died in Amazing Spider-Man #122. However, he survived this battle as revealed in Spider-Man: The Osborn Journal #1. He will resurface in Amazing Spider-Man #412.
His son Harry became the Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man #136-137. Peter states that Harry was cured of his madness. He learned this in Amazing Spider-Man #151.
