- This issue shipped on October 4th, 2006.
- This issue is noteworthy for its retconning of the 1993 Metal Men mini-series. The events of that series are explained as a hallucination on the part of Will Magnus. He tells Mercury, "... I had a bad mental breakdown after the Plutonium Man went rogue. For a while I even thought I was a machine and you were all my flesh and blood friends..."
- The giant robot that shows up at the end of this issue bears a large resemblance to a Silver Age foe of the Metal Men. Its exact name is unclear, but appears to have been B.O.L.T.S., or perhaps just BOLTS.
- The ticker-tape at the bottom of the cover reads, "Superman vs. Luthor!... You asked for him! Say hello to Super-Chief..."
- The bus Jon Standing Bear rides to Metropolis appears to be owned by a company called "Fastback" and features a logo of a speeding turtle. Fastback, an anthropomorphic turtle, was a member of the Zoo Crew. Also, the bus features an advertisement for a Silverblade movie, an homage to the DC limited series from 1987.
- The cover copy for this issue reads, "Magnus: Robot Hunted!", a reference to the 1960s sci-fi comic character "Magnus - Robot Hunter," published by Gold Key Comics. The character was later purchased by Valiant Comics, where he maintained his own ongoing series in the 1990s.
