Tidbits

The Wizard of Oz is also referenced in the non-canonical Gargoyles/The Spectacular Spider-Man crossover "Religious Studies 101: A Handful of Thorns". [1]

Early in the development of Gargoyles, there was going to be a villain called "The Sorceror/Sidero" who was described as manifesting himself in a Wizard of Oz state as a big floating head. [2][3][4]

Greg Weisman is a fan of the film [5] and has implied the Banshee is too.[6]
