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?
