As the team of young heroes (Red Robin, Stephanie Brown, and Cassandra Cain) rebels against the pace of Batwoman‘s training, Batman is attacked by a large group of Bat-armored warriors who obviously have some connection to the Dark Knight’s past.
From the short appearance we get here, it’s obvious that armored soldiers are part of some mysterious group (The League of Assassins, perhaps), but what do they want with Batman? And is there appearance what has triggered Batman’s recent plans?
While continuing to tease just what is causing Batman to bring Batwoman into the fold and throw a team of young sidekicks together with a former villain in Clayface, writer James Tynion IV and artist Eddy Barrows do provide some nice character moments in this second issue of the relaunched series. We get to see Stephanie and Tim back together as a couple (Cass’ reaction to seeing them together is pretty good as well), and Batman’s first interaction with a longtime Bat Family ally in Leslie Thompkins. Worth a look.
