Loeb said that issue sets up some of the background for the regular series and fills readers in on what Kara's been up to since "Superman/Batman" #13. Loeb added, "We also learn that Superman and Batman have continued to keep tabs on her and as her 'uncles' (in a very loosely defined way), they feel very responsible -- particularly Superman who still has to learn to let this girl go her own way. But -- and here's the fun -- they aren't the only one's watching. That mystery is tied into 'Identity Crisis' and I've been talking to Brad Meltzer who is such an inspiration for where this is all headed!"

Or at least, that's how Batman sees it..."
