Torchy works at the Daily Star - same newspaper that Lois Lane worked at in her first comic book appearance. (Later, Lane's paper was called the more-familiar Daily Planet.)

When "The Bone Crusher" - Gahagan's opponent in the boxing ring - mentions Gahagan's real first name (which The Bone Crusher knew from their Navy wrestling days) - it is hard to hear the name. It could be "Jay" - as someone has suggested in another Trivia item - but it sounds a bit more like "Jerry" (one can hear two syllables).
