The Night People were announced in FOOM as the Midnight People.
At one point, Texas Jack Muldoon lassoes somebody(Cap?) from inside the plane, something people tended to see in the sillier silver age DC comics.
DC's Bicentennial promotion was a silver Superman belt buckle, and to get it you had to buy several of one month's DC comics with a special Bicentennial banner on the top--and then mutilate the covers in order to mail the banners in. Given DC in 1976, it wasn't a great loss, but still...
That movie scene foreshadows some of Cap's treatment in his recent movie.
Not only does Ben Franklin rip off Cap, he also snags Clea under Dr. Strange's nose. He's lucky he didn't get turned into a super-villain.
There's also an obligatory "Jaws" scene with Cap fighting a great white shark. You could create an entire website about how often "Jaws" got cashed-in upon in mid-1970s comics...

Here's an example of that ad with Cap on the fife that fnord references. I think this image appeared in like every book that Marvel put out that year.

I gotta say I liked these issues. Well, really, the whole Kirby return run. Corny as hell but fun. Texas Jack is a big cartoon but it was hard for me not to read all his lines and not laugh. And Mark it was Falcon he lassoed from a moving plane. Ridiculous, yes, but it made me smile.
