  • This issue contains a Series "A" Marvel Value Stamp: #77 - The Swordsman
  • This issue is reprinted in the trade paperback Secret Empire.

  • This tale of a high ranking governement official involved in a villainous plot closely paralells the timeline of Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal. So much so that the letters page attempts to distance itself from that ongoing scandal by noting this plotline started development a year prior in Captain America 163. According to writer, Steve Englehart, his intention was for Number #1 to be then president Richard Nixon.
  • This issue contains a letters page, Let's Rap With Cap. Letters are published from Rick Keefe, Alan Markowitz, David J. Belles, Mike Cruden, and Charles Boatner.
  • The letters page also contians a ad for 35 Cent priced Giant-Size Super-Teams #1 featuring the Defenders. This issue was never published. This story was apprently presented in the 50 Cent Giant-Size Defenders #1. The ad tells that this story will be all new, but Giant-Size Defenders #1 has four reprint stories.
