Comments: The title of the story emphasizes that the Beyond Corporation was first seen in the non-continuity NEXTWAVE: AGENTS OF HATE, which explains Spectrum/Monica's confusion. The only previous appearances of W.E.S.P.E. were in MIGHTY AVENGERS (2013 series) #4 and 8. Quantrell mentions Elisha Gray, the forgotten inventor of the telephone.
