** Miles claims that when Richard Nixon left the White House, the staff would double-check the silverware. This was pre-Watergate, mind you.

* HeyItsThatGuy: In the credits, the film's '''costume designer''' is none other than the man who went on to direct ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''--JoelSchumacher. There are, thankfully, no nipples on any of the costumes in this movie.

* CompleteMonster: Tao was created as the Tactical Augmented Organism, growing at an amazing rate into a man. The problem was, Tao grew with a sense of cold superiority an disdain for all others. He masterminded several wars between superheroes, resulting in many casualties, in an early attempt to end the world. Using his powerful hypnotic suggestion abilities, he forced the strongest heroes into being his sex slaves to prevent them from stopping him. After these plans fail, Tao reinvents himself as the ruler of a crime syndicate where he distinguishes himself with cold professionalism combined with violent sadism. As the hero of ''Sleeper'' describes it, Tao won't pull out your guts. He'll make you do it to yourself, and enjoy it all the while.
