Behind the scenes

  • The Phantom tells Manna, Whitey and the judge about the origin of the Phantom. This is the second time he's seen revealing it to anyone, the first time being to Diana in "The Singh Brotherhood" where he also states that the only ones allowed to know about it is the Phantom's eldest son, and his supposed wife.
