* The Grand Galactic Inquisitor ('''IGNORE ME!''') is a shoutout to both The Watcher (who tends to be rather obtrusive about his observing) and the Living Tribunal (who has three faces and likes to make grand pronouncements) from MarvelComics.

** SPHINX, while more directly based on Cobra from GIJoe and by proxy Hydra from MarvelComics, seems a little too similar to Astro City's own NebulousEvilOrganization, PYRAMID. The Ancient Egypt motif, as well as the color schemes and general appearance of the uniforms, speak for themselves.

* Superhero references ''everywhere'' in Season 6: in the very first episode of the season, we're introduced to the Crusaders Action League (itself a reference to {{Archie Comics}}' MightyCrusaders) comprised of Stars and Garters (an amalgamation of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and {{Archie Comics}}' The Shield with a civilian persona based on [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Flash Thompson]]), Warriana (Wonder Woman with a costume like Thor's), Fallen Archer (a pretty even combination of Hawkeye and Green Arrow), and Night Dick (Ghost Rider plus The Spirit, possibly with shades of Batman). In following episodes, we learn that there used to be a hero called [[Franchise/TheGreenHornet the Blue Morpho with a Chinese martial artist sidekick]], one of the supervillains set to arch Rusty is Think Tank, an allusion to M.O.D.O.K., and the Spider-Man expy shows up again.
