It’s date night for Jason and Artemis. It seems someone lost a bet, or maybe a dare, we’re not quite sure. But Artemis cleans up REALLY well, while Jason, a little less so. Nevertheless, what he lacks in polish he makes up for in enthusiasm. That is, until…

The date night is not quite all it seems, while Bizarro is left at home to his own devices. Anyone of any age who’s ever been left alone unsupervised knows how dicey things can get. As I once saw on a theater marquee in Times Square, “Boredom makes you do creepy thing.” (I think it’s Jack Handey quote, but I’m not really sure.)

We all thought the dynamics of the Outlaws was ironed out, but that was back when Bizarro was, well, Bizarro. Now he’s a good deal smarter, and while he’s still the powerhouse he’s always been, he’s evolved far beyond the simple blunt instrument Red Hood and Artemis have come know and love.

It’s a good story, with solid ramifications for the future of the team on many levels – not the least of which is a teammate who may be suffering from the cure to what ails him. Either way you look at it, it’s sure to cause some fractures down the road.

Rating: 7/10
