- For Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo: The Adventure Retold, this character was redesigned to better match his real-life likeness, though company policies regarding redesigns required that his face remain the same.
- Since the beginning of Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo was modeled after The Da Vinci Code, this character was added as a way to pay tribute to the film's inspiration.
- This character was also introduced to begin a aborted recurring theme that was planned for the Johnny Thunder Saga: that one real-life person accompany Johnny Thunder and the Adventurers on each adventure. The real-life person planned to fill this roll in Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile was Zahi Hawass, but the producers were concerned about this practice, resulting in the character of Hiram Aziz and the ending of this practice.
