Synopsis: Will the Red Hood’s latest campaign be his last? Jason’s hot on the heels of the drugs he and Arsenal recently tracked to Beijing, but instead of finally encountering the mysterious Solitary, he finds himself face to face with a figure from his past. Plus, who’s the new Wingman, and why’s he tracking the Red Hood? And how can he and Jason be in the same place at the same time? Find out in “Outlaw” part five!

 

What You’ll Need To Know: Red Hood was taken prisoner in the small town of Appleton. The citizens all seemed nice, but way too nice. Jason had to battle some off-brand Solomon Grundy clones with the help of Batwoman. He also discovered part of The Underlife operation was ran in the same rehab home where Arsenal was murdered. The operation who ran it, a cyborg woman named Monday had also taken the town’s children hostage. They were able to free them, but he also got a lead on someone who ran part of The Underlife called Solitary

 

In This Issue: Red Hood decides to continue what him and Arsenal started in tracing down The Underlife. He made have hit them where it hurts once and took out a big part, but that wasn’t the last of them. His journey takes him to Mexico in an abandoned prison. It seems scary based off what locals say, but Jason has been around worse. Anyways, what he encounters takes him by surprise, it seems as though someone else, another meta human had already been there. Like someone had broken down the door with a giant ax. That could just be wishful thinking though. He encountered someone who’s been on his tail for a little while now, Wingman. He states that Jason is the hero Gotham needs, not Batman. Jason takes care of problems permanently, and he can lead other vigilantes to do the same. It seems like we’ll get back to a Wingman arc soon. In the meantime, he has more clones to deal with, like way more. They have a whole factory set up of making clones. Red Hood finally finds who he’s searching for, Solitary; along with an old Teen Titan and a cute dog.

Summary
Great issue! I feel like this built up a lot of action we’re going to get soon. I would love to see Jason leading vigilantes in Gotham only for it to blow up in his face again! The art and color went together great. I’m looking forward to seeing Artemis and Bizarro again!
Good
  • The dog doesn’t die, in case you were wondering
  • We get the whereabouts of Bizarro and Artemis! Yes!
Bad
  • Built up Wingman that was just “eh” again
