    • Multiple Lex Luthors and Supermen were adapted from other DC media, including animated, comics and live-action material.
    • The place of the Council of Luthors' meeting is Earth-99, which later became a location visited by Supergirl and Batwoman during the search for the Paragon of Courage.
    • It was believed that Earth-38 Lex Luthor time traveled back in time on Earth-38 to meet Superman, who had traveled back in time to get a Kryptonian rattle for Jonathan Kent from the Fortress of Solitude.
      • However, in Crisis on Infinite Earths Giant #2, it was revealed that the Crisis had caused Superman to become disoriented and accidentally travel to The Fortress on Earth-86, mistaking it for his own from the destroyed Earth-38.
  • Earth-38's Superman is erroneously depicted sporting the House of El emblem on his cape during a confrontation with his Lex Luthor. The emblem then disappears for the remainder of the story.
