- When Grant Morrison took over the Batman series in September 2006, he immediately began referencing classic moments from the character's career, including utilizing a version of Bat-Mite and reusing a costume and dialogue from issue #156. Among the references was "Zur En Arrh," which appeared very nearly covering an alley and again on a dumpster in issue #655. The phrase continued to appear innocuously until the "Batman R.I.P." story arc began, at which point it was mentioned as part of the "next issue" section.
