General Notes

Superman appears in one panel of the issue but it does not count as a credited appearance as it is not actually Superman but a photo-shopped picture Projectionist finds on the Internet, depicting Apollo beating the tar out of "you-know-who" on

The Demon Knights also appear in a single panel as a flashback to what are assumed to be previous incarnations of Stormwatch.
