** Dino Cop and the Spore are the DC versions of the Creator/ImageComics heroes ComicBook/SavageDragon and Comicbook/{{Spawn}} respectively. In fact, Earth-41 is basically DC's version of ImageComics; there's also characters based on Superpatriot, Shadowhawk, and members of Youngblood. There's also some element of CompositeCharacter -- the one that looks like Badrock has a lot of the Martian Manhunter's physical traits as well.

** The TV Comics Magazine strips had rights to use likenesses of the companions, but would occasionally find themselves contending with companions leaving while the strips were being drawn (or when rerunning a Second or Third Doctor strip with the Doctor [[TheyJustDidntCare retouched to resemble the current imcumbent to save money]]). Examples include Sarah Jane and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart being converted into the identical "Joan Brown" and "Colonel Maxwell-Lennon" for one story, and "Miss Young", a miniskirt-wearing companion who has Leela's overly-formal speech patterns and attempts to kill people with knives.
