Notes 2nd Story: "Don't Let the Sun Come Up on Me!"
Continuity Notes:
The narrative of this story states that Kyle Richmond is going through legal problems involving the financing of Richmond Enterprises. This has been an ongoing issue the began in Defenders #74.
Kyle Richmond identifies that he was in University and met Mindy Williams the same month that Bobby Kennedy as assassinated, and the protesters are all modeled after Vietnam protesters of the late 60's. The riot police that subdues Spider-Man and Nighthawk is likely a reference to the student protest at Kent State University in Ohio circa 1970 that ended with National Guardsmen shooting the protesters. These references should all be considered topical due to Earth-616's sliding timescale.
Mindy recounts Kyle's career, starting off as a super-villain in Avengers #69. The flashback depicts Nighthawk's battle with Daredevil during this period of time, that happened in Daredevil #62. Kyle later reformed and became a hero in Defenders #13-14.
