  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • The month of publication is not printed on the cover to this issue.
  • At the time of publication, this issue was considered the canonical last appearance of Jason Todd. He re-emerged years later in Batman Annual #25 as the Red Hood. Via retcon, Jason's first canonical "post-death" appearance actually takes place during the twelve-part Hush running through issues of Batman in 2003.[1] Originally, the Jason Todd character from "Hush" was actually Johnny Williams, the new Clayface, but this was altered later.[2]
  • Joker's Body Count = 2


  • This issue is the final appearance of Barbara Gordon under her regular name. From this point forward, she begins operating under the name Oracle.[3]
  • Ruhollah Khomeini was an actual living person who functioned as the Ayatollah of Iran from 1979-1989.[4]
