Trivia

  • In the comics, The Raft is an island prison made to house super-powered criminals. Inmates have included the Absorbing Man, Doctor Octopus, or even the Juggernaut.
    • The island was recently rechristened as Spider Island II by Spider-Man, or Doctor Octopus during the time that he took over Spider-Man's body.
  • The role of the Raft in Captain America: Civil War is used in place of Prison 42. A prison created by Reed Richards set up in the Negative Zone, where most of the anti-registration superheroes were incarcerated.
    • Due to 20th Century Fox holding the rights to all Fantastic Four-related media at the time, including Prison 42, Marvel Studios was unable to use the prison. As a result, the Raft was used instead.
  • According to the description in Jessica Jones, the Raft inmates 'have no contact with the outside world, and they never return to it.' This was further emphasized/detailed by Jeri Hogarth, who said that prisoners were 'in solitary confinement 23 hours a day' with 'no visitors' at all.
