Captain Atomic: Actually, I think I'll stay here. Things are so much better in the future! .

Oliver: Yeah, like equal rights, no discrimination because of gender or race.

Captain Atomic: Yeah, I meant more like flat-screen TV's!.


  • Captain Atomic is a parody of Marvel's Captain America.
  • Scarlet Cyclone is a parody of DC's Red Tornado. It's implied he might be a relative of Blue Tornado.
  • It is revealed that Kaz doesn't think about the past.
    • Oliver mentions that Kaz always fails history tests because of this.
  • The Black Falcon makes his first appearance.
  • This is Skylar Storm's second appearance outside of Mighty Med.
  • It is revealed that Horace Diaz is immortal.
  • This is the sixth episode that Gus appears without Jordan.
  • This is the third appearance of Stefanie.
  • Stephanie was chosen to play Skylar over the actual Skylar (Connie) in Gus's Skylar Storm movie.
  • Gus' movie superhero "The Gus Lantern" is an obvious parody on DC comics' Green lantern.
  • It is revealed that Kaz and Oliver inadvertently caused Horace's love for bridges when they traveled back in time.
  • Skylar says she never fights in heels, because it destroys her legacy. Ironically, by the time of Lab Rats: Elite Force, she gets a new costume with heels.
  • The Wormhole Generator/Transporter makes its first appearance in the series


  • Kaz has no idea who Captain Atomic is, but there are two cutouts of him in the Domain where he hangs out most of the time.
  • Kaz thought, at the time of Captain Atomic, everything was in black and white. Oliver said that was not true, but Kaz contradicts saying there was no way of knowing. However, when traveling back in time, Kaz does not comment about the subject.
  • When Skylar confronts the Black Falcon, from behind, her necklace is caught over her right shoulder, but when the camera angle is facing her, the necklace is hanging straight down. This was probably the result of editing two different takes together as one scene.
