This page features Andrés's colors. Andrés worked on some pages of SoD: Jetfire/Grimlock
Trypticon's space station alt mode is very similar to the Decepticon Space Station seen in Spotlight: Sixshot
The Six Phases Invasion Protocol, which was originally inspired by Nova Prime's plans (as seen in page 8 of Sod Omega Supreme
) is the same Protocol deployed by the Decepticons in Infiltration
An example of the disastrous consequences of a War Tech Escalation can be seen in The War Within vol. 2: The Dark Ages
This page features the "secret" origins of the same Kimia Facility previously described in page 1.
The "unmentionable weapon" is a nod to James Roberts' More Than Meets The Eye
comic book. As SoD does not exactly belong to that continuity, our Kimia Facility has a different story, but many things (like Brainstorm's impossible weapons) remain the same.
The term "fringe" was chosen as a nod to tv series Fringe.
The Circuitmaster Boltax
clearly survived the fate that befell his peers, the Ancients, in The War Within vol. 3: The Age Of Wrath
(He became an Ancient in page 5 of SoD: Shockwave/Soundwave
Boltax is also featured in Short Story: The Chosen One
Perceptor is featured in SoD: Blaster
and SoD: Magnus
, but his personal Spotlight can be found in The Drought: part 1
, The Drought: part 2
, The Drought: part 3
Every SoD fan should know what the J'nwan is by now!
Hiding a threat in a extradimensional cage is something the Autobots do often: see what Omega Supreme did to Monstructor in Spotlight: Optimus Prime
NEXT: the new Metroplex faces the new Trypticon! Plus: the Infiltration Bunker's secret!
