- Although Department H is never mentioned by name in this issue, is the Canadian agency that both Weapon Alpha and Wolverine were associated with.
- Due to the accidental injury that he gives to Moira MacTaggert, Weapon Alpha soon changes his code-name to Vindicator, swearing to vindicate any innocents that are injured due to his negligence. This is revealed in Alpha Flight #2.
- This is the first comic book issue where Wolverine is referred to as Weapon-X.
- Wolverine is still wearing Fang's Imperial Guard costume from X-Men #108 in the beginning of this story.
- On page 5, Cyclops remarks about how different Jean Grey has become in recent weeks. Originally, writer Chris Claremont intended Jean Grey and the Phoenix to be the same person. It wasn't until years later that it was revealed that the Phoenix entity and the true Jean Grey were completely separate characters. However, Cyclops' dialogue in this issue helps to support the retroactive continuity as it relates to the Phoenix storyline.
- Storm reveals she talks to her plants.
- Editing mistake - While Banshee and Storm are flying above the lake, Banshee tells Storm it is time to go. Although they are the only two people flying around Storm agrees with him and then advises Banshee that "Banshee" has signaled them back to the lake.
