Clayface has fallen to the Victim Syndicate and so has Arkham Asylum. Their next move is towards Batman and his allies. With the team at its edge finding themselves at a crossroads, they race to stop the Arkham takeover in hopes to save a friend.

What you need to know: The Victim Syndicate has made Clayface fall to his knees. Their purpose to show the City of Gotham what company Batman has been keeping around in his so called “Bat-family”; a murdering supervillain.

What you’ll find out: The news is out. The people of Gotham have learned who has been helping Batman. In learning the truth they have rallied together taking to the streets against the Bat-family, joining the Victim Syndicates’ cause.

What just happened? The Bat-family is crumbling. As Batwoman reveals what Red Robin was trying to do, Batman takes over the team and sends them to different locations to keep surveillance on the streets. Victim’s Day is at full affect, but something seems off as Red Robin takes a closer look.

In Arkham, the Victim syndicate has full control and every guard on duty has joined their cause. While Clayface is tortured, they wait for the arrival of Batman to save one of his own. As time passes, Clayface is becoming less of the person he has been working hard to be, and more of the monster he once was. Can Batman reach his fellow team member in time, or is it too late for everyone? Has the Victim Syndicate finally won?

Summary
Not going to lie but that cover by Gulliem March and Tomey Moery has to be one of the coolest badass covers I have seen on Detective Comics. The Victim Syndicate has truly taken out the Bat-families power house and it really sucks. I have said it before and from the beginning, Clayface has been my favorite in this team. He might be the heart of the team as Red Robin is the brain. The struggle of becoming a better person and Batman believing in home shows us that we all struggle with demons, but  we all deserve a second chance. And if Batman comes for you to join his team what a great opportunity is that. The Victim Sydicate does not seem to like that idea and believes everyone should pay for what they have done. All I hope is the best for Basil Karloff. God damn you James Tynion IV, always messing with my emotions.
