Trivia

  • Several references to past stories are present in the Batman story, as flashbacks to the various Batsuits previously used. The stories are taken from the following comics:

The "Luminous Batsuit" in the cover is said to have been used against Professor Radium, which happened in Batman #8. However, this story doesn't feature any special Batsuit. The same suit is later referenced as being used to scare a criminal into submission, which is a story that never was published.
