Greetings Bat boys and girls. Time for a new match-up. Lex Luthor vs. Batman. Just to reiterate, we’re using the same criteria as Superman vs. Batman.
We’ll be looking at Jeph Loeb’s Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. If you’re not familiar with the plot, Lex puts a bounty on Superman’s head and Bats help Big Blue get out of trouble. Especially considering Lex is the President at this point in continuity. Now, to business kids.

A lot has happened since the close of Red Hood and the Outlaws #16. If you have not had the opportunity to read Batman #17, turn back now. But if you are ready, then so am I! Let’s move forward to Red Hood and the Outlaws #17.
The start of the story sees Jason calling for Kori and Roy to come pick him up as they all head out to Wayne Manor. Jason has short conversation with Damian and Dick before making his way to…

Last month we ended with Jason Todd’s unconscious body being dropped next to Tim Drake who also was taking a nap. The Titans and the Outlaws were looking to team up to track down their leaders who had both gone missing.
Before going on much further, one thing to note is that the story in this month’s issue is a direct continuation from the end of Teen Titans #15, not the end of Red Hood #15. To sum that issue up in simple terms, Tim Drake had…

The Outlaws team up with the Teen Titans to battle Gotham citizens under the influence of the Joker toxin. Meanwhile the teams respective leaders Jason Todd and Tim Drake are still held captive by The Joker, who is putting the finishing touches to his plan to take out another two of Batman's trusted allies.
This was an enjoyable enough issue with a big spotlight put onto Roy Harper and his having to step up and lead not only the Outlaws but also the Teen Titans as well. The…

The Joker is back! At the end of last month’s issue, Jason had found the unconscious body of Isabel, GCPD was about to break down the door and the Joker was on the TV screen letting Jason know just how screwed he was.
The story continues from there in issue #15. Jason “deals” with the police, led by Bullock and leaves Isabel in their caring arms. He is fleeing to the Batcave to warn the rest of the family when he is gassed by the Joker. We get…

The big battle in space is over and our team is on its way back to Earth in “Red Hood and the Outlaws #14”. This issue starts us off with a bang as Superman comes alongside and asks for a word with Kori. Awkward! The crew thinks it can help our heroes give Superman the slip by transporting them to Earth using a cloaking program, but a few minutes after being transported to the island hideout, the Man of Steel has already caught up with them. Superman…

After a break in the action for last month’s #0, Jason Todd’s only origin story , we are back into the action right where we left off in Red Hood and the Outlaws #12. We are in the middle of the climatic final battle between Lord Blight and Kori and friends. Roy and Jason are involved but the real action takes place between Kori, Komi (her sister), and the crew of the orbiting ship that is justly named Starfire. The ground action takes a turn for the…
