The New Superman and Batman Team! was originally published as an imaginary story, a story outside of regular continuity. In Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium, it was retconned as having happened on another Earth, (Earth-167).
This is Cary Bates' debut as a writer for DC Comics. As mentioned in the letters section of this issue "Cape and Cowl Comments", Bates had previously submitted plots and ideas that were used in past stories, and for this reason he was eventually hired as a writer.
