Other Hasbro franchise references[edit]

  • Christopher Lavigne, the military police officer who arrests Sly Rax, is the real identity of the G.I. Joe MP Law, making his IDW debut with this issue. Sadly, his German Shepard, Order, is nowhere to be seen.
    • Unlike his original counterpart, the IDW incarnation is a lieutenant rather than a corporal.

Real-world references[edit]


  • Dr. Mindbender is once again referred to as "Dr. Bender" rather than "Dr. Singh".
  • Rax's sunglasses frequently change between having a bridge between two lenses or not.
  • Bruno's cybernetics have once again been flipped to the right side of his face.

Other notes[edit]

  • Solicited for release in April, this issue arrives a month late in May.
