Ok, first off, nothing even remotely like the image on the cover occurs in Detective 547 (Feb. 85). Doug Moench, Pat Broederick and Klaus Janson tell a story that is very much just another chapter in Batman’s soap opera life.
Julia has warmed up enough to Alfred now that she tells him she is changing her last name to Pennyworth.
Nocturna and Robin are out on patrol together, and run into the Night Slayer, wearing Batman’s outfit. Batman is running around in the Night Slayer costume. That all happened in the pages of Batman. Overall, it seems that, during this period, most things begin, end, or happen, in the pages of Batman, as Detective stories carry the plot from one event to another.
Cavalieri, Moore and Patterson continue their story about Vengeance, the man who looks and acts just like Vigilante, in this Green Arrow story.
Onyx arrives in Star City, and shows herself capable of surviving the streets of the big city.
The “crime” that Vengeance is out to avenge deals with events back from the VietNam War, and a messed up, guilt-ridden vet is the target. So we definitely side with Green Arrow.
