* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: In the newsreel and the ending WW2 scene, the Japanese and German soldiers are somehow almost all equipped with classic gangster [[CoolGuns/SubmachineGuns Tommy Guns]] instead of the MP-40 or Arikara rifle. Justified, though, as the Golden Age comics often depicted Mooks using the Thompson M1921/M1928, due to it being the typical "[[GoodGunsBadGuns bad guy gun]]" at the time.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Alex Ross used models for certain characters, such as [[Music/{{Queen}} Freddie Mercury]] for Namor, TimothyDalton for Tony Stark, [[Series/GilligansIsland Russel Johnson]] for Reed Richards, and, most notably, Creator/PatrickStewart for Professor Xavier, years before the actor [[Film/XMen would be cast for that same character]]. Don Knotts also appears as an extra.

**At Alicia Master's art show, two old women discuss the Thing, noting that "at least he's not one of those horrible muties", just as Professor Xavier, Scott Summers, and Jean Grey happened to be walking by.

** Peter Parker looks a lot like Creator/TobeyMaguire. The ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' movies have come out after the comic, so the possibility for the ''Marvels'' Pete to be based on the ''movies'' Pete is pretty unlikely. But it could be the other way around -- Maguire being a casting choice could be based on this comic alone.
** Also: Ross based his [[Franchise/XMen Professor X]] on Creator/PatrickStewart, much before the ''X-Men'' films.
