- The Terror Of Goll is reprinted in Golden Age Flash Archives Volume 1.
- On page 7, The Flash seems to hurl a lightning shaped object to stop one of the gunmen. If it was a power or an object, it is not clear (there is no auxiliary text, and the art does not help). Anyway, The Flash never used this ploy again.
- Hawkman is reprinted in Golden Age Hawkman Archives Volume 1.
- In this, their second published appearance, Carter and Shiera are already engaged.
- At various points in this story, the hero is named "Hawkman," "The Hawk-Man," and "The Hawk."
- Hawkman got one bullet wound in this story.
- Alexander the Great knocked down at least one large building and probably more, demonstrating his gravity weapon. No reliable estimates exist of the deaths and injuries inflicted that day.
- New York City, 1940: Going strictly by cover dates, this would be one month after "The Master"s mass-fatality-inflicting lightning attacks and accompanying fascist takeover (All-American Comics #10 Jan 1940), and three months after Carl Kruger's skyscraper-smashing death-ray attack (Detective Comics #33 Nov 1939).
- Hawkman's dual identity was known to Alexander the Great; he later got better at keeping it secret.
- Alexander's gravity-inducing technology is ineffective against Ninth Metal; Hawkman himself explains that "Alexander's machine multiplies the atomic energy (of objects) and (the Ninth Metal) has no such energy in its makeup".
- Hawkman confiscated one of Alexander's devices for his weapons collection, and presumably later learned more valuable gravity science from reverse-engineering it.
