* {{Bowdlerized}}: In the 1971 reprint (which [[BlatantLies falsely claimed to be complete and unabridged]]), a scene where the hero mistakenly beats up a black man (who he assumed was the villain charred in coal dust) in the middle of an entire club full of black people (who are all drawn in the BlackFace) was edited out.

* MistakenForRacist: PlayedForLaughs; at one point, the hero is chasing the villain through the city and they both get covered in soot. In the chaos, the hero makes his way into a club full of black people and starts strangling one of them, assuming it was the hero. It takes a moment for the situation to sink in when he realizes where he's at, and its ''strongly'' implied that they beat the stuffing out of him afterward.
