||Story is told primarily in splash pages and gray tones in the Red Skull's mindscape. As verified by Mark Waid, the finished comic was, over the weekend before the Monday it was due at the printer's, rewritten in large part by staff editor Ralph Macchio at the request of Editor In Chief Bob Harras. Waid asked to have his name removed from the interior credits; the cover, crediting him, had already been printed.
