Synopsis: We have waited 18 issues for this! Red Hood and Artemis’s first date! We’ve had a lot of tension and flirtation throughout the comic book, but how will this date go and who will be around to interrupt it!
What You’ll Need To Know: There’s a lot of shady things going on. Silly me, I thought Bizarro’s pool of synthetic kryptonite was the Lazarus Pit. In case you read my last review. Shame on me! Anyways, he is doing something very risky to keep his super intelligence and he is losing the trust of his team more and more each day.
In This Issue: Can I point out how funny it is that Bizarro is wearing crocs? Anyways, the whole “Date Night” only plays a factor into about half of this issue. The banter between Artemis and Jason is very suited to them. Neither of them are super flirty or affectionate so it’s definitely not forced, but it could blossom into something in the future. I like the idea of them as love interests. Even though that date was a decoy. Surprise, surprise! Synthetic kryptonite even gives ability for Bizarro to spy on Jason and Artemis’s date. He didn’t even realize it until Pup Pup, his little conscience called him out! Artemis finally takes the chance to say something is really wrong with Bizarro. They do think he set them up with Batwoman and with Suicide Squad. Bizarro is also in contact with a guy named Solitary, a strange fellow. There’s so many secrets that keep on growing! Could Lex Luthor be behind this or is this ALL Bizarro’s doing?
