---->'''Supergirl:''' I stood in that room and watched my mother torture that man for information. A man I'd taken back to New Krypton. A man I'd... I'd illegally extradited for his crimes.

* In ''Batman, Incorporated'', a distopian future is shown wherein Gotham is in flames and Joker venom has become a plague essentially, and the few survivors are holed up in Arkham Asylum.

She completely breaks down afterwards, telling Damian that the Joker succeeded in turning them into monsters, and opens the gates so the insane mobs may kill everyone inside Arkham.
