* Why don't we ever see Paperinik's pre-PKNA opponents, aside for Lord Walrus ([[RememberTheNewGuy who had never actually appeared in previous stories]])? Easy: they're just no match for a Paperinik equipped with Ducklair technology and supported by One. Most of them are one-shot characters relying on a gimmick that Paperinik would always neutralize (as shown by Lord Walrus), and One would find a way to neutralize them even faster, and the ones who aren't (namely Perfidus, still one-shot but an EvilCounterpart of Paperinik who was ''not'' apprehended, and the recurring Lola Duck and Spectrus) are either no match for Paperinik's new tech (Perfidus, who relied on gadgets literally made out of garbage, and Lola Duck, who was a ClassyCatBurglar) or have lost their one advantage (Spectrus relied on his HypnoticEyes... And Paperinik became ''immune'' to that after his brief time at Dhasam-Bul).

* In ''The Dams of Time'', the Raider is back working for the Organization, and the leaders have apparently been replaced. Both have good reasons: the Raider retired when time travel stopped working, but now it works again; as for the change of leaders, the last time we saw the old ones they were being arrested with all the known Organization members, [[spoiler: and even with Time 0 and its prison conquered the new ones aren't stupid enough to free their only possible rivals]].

** Partially confirmed in-story: the various air forces have no new special weapon (the most advanced thing we see is the F-22), yet they still defeated the Evronian fleets.

* In ''Might and Power'' we are told that the Evronian conquest of Earth after reorganizing from within our own planet began at the end of 2014, while the story was published in July 2014. Even taking ComicBookTime in perspective, it means that the seemingly too easy defeat of the Evronians at the end of the storyline is plausible: not only they are taken by surprise, and attacked with a new technology they didn't expect, but while at an advanced stage they are simply still not ready - Nebula Faraday even laments they are behind schedule.

* Being one of the early stories, PKNA #5 was written before most of the following events were planned; this led, over time, for the future it showed to have some contradictions, and the reveal that [[spoiler:one-shot character [=McCoy=] was Grrodon in disguise]] almost 40 issues later only patched things up partially. Comes ''Might and Power'', which sees PK back in action against a resurgent Evronian menace, and the events in it now have PKNA #5 as their most logical future.

* In "Portrait of the Young Hero" the Evronians of Styvesant's show have two kinds of warriors, the normal kind (portrayed by actors in costumes) and a less numerous force of 'Super Evronians' (portrayed by robots). The 2014 relaunch has the Evronian troops that [[spoiler: conquered Earth in about one month]] show up in two kinds, the normal warriors and a less numerous force of '[[SuperSoldier Augmented Units]]'... That look ''identical'' to Styvesant's 'Super Evronians'.

** There's a less (or possibly more) horrifying solution to this: ''the Evronians programmed the AI to take care of the kids of conquered peoples''. We have been shown the Evronians ''do'' keep around non-coolflame members of the peoples they conquer (see issue #25 and the Xadhoom Trilogy itself), some because they're more valuable with their intelligence and some presumably as breeding stock (Evronians do need to eat their emotions, after all), so it would make sense to them to take the children from their parents and have them raised by AI[=/=]s to make them loyal subjects of the Empire.

* Duckburg's people seem awfully willing to believe Angus when he accuses Paperinik of pretty much anything. Seems strange, right? Well, as most Italian fans will remember, Paperinik started out as a ''criminal'', one so feared that him merely showing up after a leave of absence was enough to ''cause city-wide panic'' (third story, "Paperinik Strikes Again"), and when some supposed scientists declared him a robot everyone, even people who should have known better, believed them until he [[ItMakesSenseInContext terrified into submission half of the city population with a gun made of chocolate]] (fourth story, "Paperinik's Double Triumph"), and even after reforming he was known to be rather sadistic and capable of literally ''steal away half of the city to track down a mob boss'' (he gave back the loot once he didn't need to fake a FaceHeelTurn). Nothing too easy to believe he simply changed his mind again.

* The Xerbian survivors managed to [[spoiler:engineer a process that reverts Coolflames to their original form]]. However, Xadhoom often didn't hesitate to [[spoiler:blow up Coolflames along with their Evronian masters. How many innocents could have been saved?]]
