Footnotes and References

  1. Only three members of Battle Force 2000 can be seen in this issue: Dodger, Dee-Jay and Blocker. The rest are identified by which vehicles they drive.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Since Sneak Peek was loosely based on a real person, it's possible his parents' names are Stephen and Tabitha.
  3. It would later be revealed in G.I. Joe #168 that Sneak Peek's death had been faked, for some unknown reason.
  4. Ambush and Recoil are shot, but do not die. They can be seen walking to camp at the end of the issue.
  5. George Bailey can be seen standing on the bridge in the snow, contemplating his life.
