  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Spider-Man 3:

      The fight at the construction building is very similar to Spider-Man 3 where Spider-Man fights Venom and the Sandman and then Harry Osborn comes to aid the hero.

    • Watchmen:

      The constant calling of the city as a whore in need of help might be a reference to Rorschach from Watchmen and his lines about how corrupt the city has become.

    • A Leprechaun in Mobile:

      On the news coverage of Mysterion, an African-American gentleman with a gold tooth and blue hat asks the people in the crowd if they've seen Mysterion to say yeah. This reference comes from the 2006 story and viral video hit A Leprechaun in Mobile in which a similar gentleman asks the Mobile, AL crowd if they've seen the leprechaun in a tree say yeah.

    • The Dark Knight:

      The entire episode is a parody of The Dark Knight complete with the secret identities, the husky voices, and the idea to blow up a hospital.
