Review: Red Hood and the Outlaws #15

I’ve enjoyed Red Hood and the Outlaws, until now, but after 15 steady issues, I’m willing to overlook a single moment of sloppy writing and/or sloppy editing. Or maybe DC’s production department messed up and left a page out, I really can’t be sure.

On page 9, Bizarro realizes his mind is starting to slide back into his former mono-syllabic self. In frustration, he pounds the floor, to find his hands covered in mud. Why not? Isn’t there dirt under most floors (eventually)? On page 10, Jason Todd and Artemis enter Bizarro’s lab to discover him gone, the only clue being the aforementioned mud (or clay).

Page 11 shows Bizarro (now in costume) confined to a chair by Batwoman and Batwing. “You came at us,” she tells Bizarro. WHAT? When did that happen? On page 12, Red Hood and Artemis are running through high-tech corridors (where, exactly is never stated), to be confronted by a hologram of Bizarro in his chair, who directs them to a quantum doorway. Passing through, they find Bizarro being held by other members of the Bat-family. So, are we in their lair now or what, cuz I’m all manner of confused.

Overall, it’s a typical team-up story, with two teams of heroes fighting one another. Of course, it’s the other team who are the bad guys here, because this aint their book. If they are featured elsewhere in the current DC library, no doubt the Outlaws would be the villains du jour.

Rating: 4/10
