The world of DC comics just got a little more cursed. 

A Jujutsu Kaisen cameo has sent fans into a frenzy after Yuji Itadori was spotted in a background scene of DC Comics’ milestone Nightwing 113 — the 300th issue in the ongoing series.

Shortly after the cameo started trending on social media, artist Daniele Di Nicuolo confirmed the character was indeed Yuji, who was roaming around Gotham City.

While eagle-eyed fans were ecstatic to spot Yuji carrying a pizza box, it’s important to note this is an unofficial cameo.

Jujutsu Kaisen creator Gege Akutami and the series’ publisher, Shueisha, haven’t acknowledged the Easter Egg, suggesting it was a playful nod by the artist.

This type of unexpected appearance is common in Western comics. Occasionally, famous characters from one publisher, like Marvel, might make a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in a DC panel.

Nightwing patrols the crime-ridden streets of Bludhaven, utilizing his acrobatic skills, detective training, and an arsenal of gadgets to combat criminals and protect the city.
