Reader Dan S. wrote in to ask:

After their famous sword duel in the desert, Batman slings Ra’s al Ghul over his shoulder and carries him away. Where does he take Ra’s?? (Not to Arkham Asylum or Gotham City jail, I presume.) In Ra’s al Ghul’s next appearance, whenever that was, is there any mention of where he’s been since their fight in the desert?

Comic Book Questions Answered: What, Exactly, Did Mephisto’s Spell in One More Day Do?

A few months back, I answered a question about who still knows Spider-Man’s secret identity in the Marvel Universe.

Did it bring Harry Osborn back, as well? Did it hide Spider-Man’s secret identity? Did it bring back Aunt May’s house in Queens? I’ll answer it all here…
