Library skills rule the world
In Birds of Prey 87, The Calculator says that Oracle is a threat. That "the reason this society will triumph -- is my knowledge, my databases, my sources that are going to make us victorious". Essentially, the library and information science skills I need for my job could also help me to become ruler of all time, space and dimension...(insert daydream).. but of course, I use my powers for good!
Also, there is a They Might Be Giants reference. Canary has a mission in Istanbul (not Constantiople). Comics and TMBG, some of my favorite things together!
