  • Female comic book creator Shirley Fortune shortened her name when crediting her work on Mono to "Ley Fortune," possibly out of fear that Mono's predominately male audience would reject a hero created by a woman.
  • While Mono is not among the many Canadian heroes resurrected/reinvented for Ty Templeton's Johnny Canuck and the Guardians of the North series, he is referenced when Johnny Canuck reveals he named his ship the "Air Cobra."
