- This comic was only available from Comic-Con in 2010 and subsequently eBay and other locations fans might upload to or sell from.
- The cover is based on Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman.
- An intentionally poorly animated version of this comic appears in the bonus features of Volume 5, complete with narration by Fry.
- The origin story of Delivery-Boy Man is a parody of/was ripped off from the origins of Superman (the hero's original parents were scientists on another planet and was adopted by an Earth couple), Batman (the parents were shot by a mysterious man), Spider-Man (bit by a radioactive spider, or in this case, "stung" by a spider's stinger even though spiders do not have stingers in real life), Wolverine from X-Men (the metal claws), and Wonder Woman (the Wonder Woman costume was meant to be sent to Planet Amazonia, a reference to the fact that Wonder Woman is an Amazonian princess).
