* {{Crossover}}: The characters from different superhero teams are appearing together. They also turned up in one issue of an almost completely forgotten ''Shadowhawk'' story, where JimValentino indulged himself in a scathing TakeThat at those who worship the old school Silver Age approach to super-heroes. (Shadowhawk's own unexamined NinetiesAntiHero values wouldn't get a similar jab until Creator/KurtBusiek got a hold of the character.) There was also a crossover in ''Big Bang Comics'' #35, pitting the Silver Age Marvel Ersatzes against BB's Silver Age DC Ersatzes.

''1963'' is a six-issue miniseries written by Creator/AlanMoore, with art by Rick Veitch and others, published in 1993 by Creator/ImageComics. A {{Retraux}} work, it invokes TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks (specifically early Creator/MarvelComics), complete with spoof advertisements in the style of the day. This last item was repeated with a period-appropriate twist by Moore's later project with Kevin O'Neill, ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. It ends on a [[LeftHanging never-to-be-resolved]] CliffHanger.

* CutShort: The series has never been finished as initially intended. It was meant to be followed by an 80 page annual, in which the ''1963'' characters are catapulted forward 30 years to meet with the [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age]] characters of 1993.

* TakeThat: Not so much to early Creator/MarvelComics, but the people behind them; especially poking to StanLee. In fact "Affable Al" is depicted as pretty much a completely horrible human being in every way, personal and professional.

** Also, when the Voidoid is scanning the Fury in Issue #2, you'll notice that in one part, the name of a certain {{Superman}} character from the fifth dimension appears in one of the panels.
** And in the final issue, when the heroes are transported into another world, panels from various other ''Image'' comics are seen in the background - including one of ''normalman''... in reference to ''normalman'' having a Mystery, Inc cameo under similar circumstances.
** The N-Man can be seen reading a copy of JackKerouac's ''OnTheRoad.''
