The Flashback is the sixty-first issue of the series, and the first issue of season 7.
Samus and Captain Oveur are flying in space when they receive a hologram message from someone telling them that they need to find "the Great Weapon". Samus then asks where the Writer is, and Oveur reminds her of the "incident in the ocean" through a flashback. In the flashback, the Writer is swimming with the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, in the ocean. The Writer shows Irwin "Stingy the Stingray", and the stingray attacks and kills Irwin by stabbing him in the chest with its tail. The Discovery Channel says that they can't let anyone find out about how Irwin really died, so they give the Writer a fedora and declare him the new Crocodile Hunter. The flashback then ends, with Oveur asking Samus why she couldn't remember that. She says she did remember that, but the readers had no idea what happened to the Writer, and so she wanted to have it explained.
- This issue references an obscure Steve Irwin death conspiracy theory.
