** The titular [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=2418 Pentagram of the Ages]] bears more than a passing resemblance to the symbol on the cover of ''[[Creator/HPLovecraft The Necronomicon]]'', which makes its flavor text blackly amusing, especially given Soldev's eventual fate.

** There isn't a single aspect of it that isn't a ShoutOut to [[MarvelComics Marvel]] or [[DCComics DC]]. One example: Not only are the Grue shapeshifting aliens reminiscent of the Skrulls; not only is there a Meta-Grue, equivalent to the Super-Skrull, ''not only'' is their Meta-Mind leader a ShoutOut to the Supreme Intelligence of the Skrulls' enemies, the Kree; but their home planet is called Gruen-World, in homage to the late MarvelComics editor Mark Gruenwald.
