* CaptainErsatz: An unusually literal instance in the 2012 "ship disaster" storyline, with the ship's captain behaving the same way that ''Costa Concordia'' captain Francesco Schettino was alleged to have done during the ship's sinking, but being drawn to resemble Edward Smith, captain of the ''Titanic''.

** A kidnapper taking the kid to a diner, and being distracted with desserts while the employees call the cops. Was also big news story at one time. Though this one is just vague enough that it could be a coincidence.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In a recent storyline, it featured a Doctor named Dr. Kaphut who was addicted to heroin. He looked remarkably like Aldo Kelrast and even had the same mustache in his first appearance (Though it was removed in subsequent appearances likely for this reason) if Dr. Kaphut was Aldo who had faked his own death and went to drugs to fill the void that was Mary, and Mary finding out and having to convince him to move on, wouldn't that have been a much better storyline?
