Notes Continuity Notes
Spider-Man mentions his battle with the Jackal and the Spider-Clone at Shae Stadium last issue. THe location of the battle should be considered a topical reference per the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616, particularly since Shea Stadium was demolished in 2009.
Spider-Man mentions the last time he and the Vulture battled it out. The footnote points out that this was Amazing Spider-Man #64. However, it was actually in Spider-Man Human Torch #2. The omission here is because Spider-Man Human Torch #2 was published years later.
Spider-Man points out that the Sandman robot is dressed in the villain's trademark street clothes. This is a reference to the outfit he wore early in his career starting in Amazing Spider-Man #4, this story also references Amazing Spider-Man #18-19. At the time of this story, the Sandman has been wearing a technological costume he put together in Fantastic Four #61.
Spider-Man likens this battle to the dream he had when he tried to eliminate his spider-powers in Amazing Spider-Man #100.
Spider-Man tosses the lab results confident that he is the real Spider-Man and not a clone. This has an overreaching consequence years later during the Clone Saga.
