NotesEdit

    • 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 confiscated one of Alexander's devices for his weapons collection, and presumably later learned more valuable gravity science from reverse-engineering it.
  • Aside from the stories above, this issue contains:
  • "Cliff Cornwall" by Sheldon Moldoff
  • "Rod Rian of the Skypolice" by Paul H. Jepsen
  • "Warfare in Space" by Gardner F. Fox (text story)
  • "Flash" picture novel "The Demon Dummy" by Ed Wheelan (Part Two)
