Review: Red Hood and the Outlaws #22

Bizarro has a problem. Lex Luthor has endowed him with intelligence, but at a personal cost which compromises his well-being. So with that intellect comes the understanding of what he has to lose in order to regain his mental/emotional/physical stability. Thankfully, neither Red Hood nor Artemis are inclined to let Bizarro slip quietly into the night.

But distractions happen, not the least of which is Artemis prior allegiance to Luthor, as well as Jason Todd’s past coming back to haunt him. Bizarro is willing to trust his teammates, but for how long? The clock is ticking.

Action and excitement has been key ingredients for Red Hood and the Outlaws since issue #1, with adequate amounts of character development. It appears now that focus has shifted, as action takes a back seat to not only Bizarro’s journey, but that of his co-star’s in relationship to one another.

Red Hood is one of those titles I look forward to. I tend to wade in the shallow end of the DC Universe, so it’s refreshing to read characters and properties that don’t have decades of baggage and history to constantly reconcile.

Rating: 8/10
