Yeah, the Destroyer comics are 616. And no, none of Angela's Image appearances have been referenced, at least to my knowledge (I haven't read all of her Marvel appearances, so it's possible there's a reference I haven't seen, but her handbook entry didn't reference them).

What about "2001: A Space Odyssey" #1-8? Is it canon?

The Marvel Monsters Bloodstone Files book references the New Seed from those issues, so that seems to be evidence that they're 616. I haven't read them, though, and I've heard that they don't fit well with 616 continuity, so I can't really say for sure.

Some of them are, and some not.

Hugo Danner from Philip Wylie's 1930 novel Gladiator is canon. He appeared in Marvel Preview #9 and was confirmed as canon in Marvel Atlas #1 (France). As an aside, in DC Comics he is also the father of Iron Munro.

Some minutes ago I've learned that ''Hellraiser'' character was mentioned in Mystic Arcana and Marvel Comics Presents issue.

Yep. It's unclear if this means that Marvel's Hellraiser comics are 616 or not, though. The Mystic Arcana reference refers back to the Marvel Comics Presents story as the first appearance, not to an issue of Hellraiser (which were published before the Marvel Comics Presents story).

Does anyone know, were Golden Age Amazing Man stories ever referenced in Marvel-published material?
