The team-up you never saw coming ... Alfred Pennyworth and...Bane?!
Summary of Stephness: While Batman fights his way through criminals escaping from the leveled Arkham Asylum, assisted by Julia Pennyworth, and Alfred and Bane are fighting their way undergroun. Steph blazes past Vicki Vale on a motorbike, being pursued by cops. A sniper takes out her headlight, and she veers into an alleyway, only to be clothes lined by Hush. Julie notices Hush through surveillance, and Batman heads to save Hush's victim (which is Steph, but we assume only because she hasn't caught her breath yet. The fact that Batman doesn't seem to know about Steph in Batman #28 would indicate that they haven't meet quite yet).
