Synopsis:  Missing since the fateful events of issue #25, the story of what happened to Bizarro and Artemis after they were sucked through the quantum doorway can finally be told!  Trapped in a strange reality where everyone with metahuman abilities has become normal and ordinary humans now possess powers, up is down, left is right and only a pair of Outlaws can save the day in a world gone mad.  Meet strange new foes, and even stranger new allies. Can the Outlaws fix this broken world and still make it back to our world and their mission alongside the Red Hood?

 

What You’ll Need To Know: So it’s been a while since we’ve heard from Bizarro and Artemis. As far as Jason knows, they’re dead. He saw it happen right? Jason saw their “Watch Tower” explode and Bizarro and Artemis sacrifice themselves to save the city from fiery destruction.

Jason didn’t get much time to investigate because he was exiled from Gotham by Batman after shooting Penguin, which we later learn that Jason did not intend to kill. He was saved from a brutal beating by Batman from his good friend Arsenal, who was murdered in Sanctuary. We haven’t forgotten about them!

 

In This Issue: Red Hood speaks to a meta-human child, who has the ability to “sync with the dead”. His name is Caden. Obviously. Jason thinks Bizarro and Artemis are dead and he wants to seek them out anyway he can. Artemis and Bizarro stumble upon the Hall of Justice, but it’s not the Hall of Justice we all know. It’s just a museum, there’s no more heroes, no more Justice League, we all lost them in something this security guard refers to as “Hero Day”. Meta-humans had their powers shut off, every human on Earth gained powers.

They are being watched by an unlikely group of people lead by a dude in an old timey waiter get up. We catch up to them 6 months later (Whoa, it’s already been 6 months?!) They are fighting against a tyrannical government who is anti-supers with the help of new allies.

Turns out Lex Luthor (surprise, surprise) is behind Hero Day! And he’s a big a brain now if that doesn’t make things weirder. He also has possession of The Quantum Doorway! That’s Bizarro’s and Artemis’s last chance to get back to their world. They never thought they’d see it again. After stopping Luthor, they get to return! Jason will get to get his team back!

Summary
Awesome issue! Great for an annual. I’m so happy to finally know the whereabouts of Bizarro and Artemis. I have missed them a lot. Bizarro got to do a lot without his super intelligence! I think the post-apocalyptic vibe made it super interesting and was super creative. Art was awesome and I loved their new look!
Good
  • It was a good read, more lengthy and we finally got answers we were looking for!
Bad
  • Last battle was a little anti-climatic
