It’s as if it was decided midway through the story to go in an alternate direction, adding a very thick layer of innocence to the narrative. As if no one can truly be evil. Not more evil than Jason, anyway. In his own comic book, HE is the main villain.
Must of the chapter is a big slugfest between Jason and Batwoman against creatures that aren’t much more than rip-offs of the Hulk. Or Solomon Grundy, if you prefer. Whatever happened to that particular co-star? We don’t know, and we might never will.
As for Batwoman’s guest appearance, I guess DC needed to use her somewhere for copyright reasons. She wasn’t the best choice of guest-hero for this issue, and her departure from the stage is decidedly UN-batlike.
