Guest-starring in this issue is the Silencer, so named because she can create fields which blanket sound. I’m not sure if she’s part of the Bat-family or entirely on her own or what. Apparently her back story is she’s some sort of assassin for Leviathan, but she’d love nothing more than to retire to the quiet life.
Also competing is this wacky race is Professor Pyg, a horrible Batman villain whose schtick is mutilation. A little of him goes a long way, yet DC keeps trotting him out, as if greater exposure will push him up the Bat-villain ladder. I have news for you, DC: it won’t.
This is chapter II of “Harm’s Way,” a brief story-arc-within-a-story-arc as Nightwing continues his battle against the Dark Web. It’s a tale that’s gone on long enough, in my opinion. Like professor Pyg, a little goes a long way, and I’ve grown a little bored with it. Time for DC to wrap this story up.
