Red Hood and the Outlaws #13

red-hood-and-the-outlaws-new-52-13-coverThe Outlaws’ outer space adventure comes to a close as Kory and her older sister lead a battle against The Blight with the help of the crew of the Starfire and their human friends.

The choice to make Roy Harper the sole narrator for this issue works well as it seems to be the easiest character for Scott Lobdell to write (Roy seems to share his jaded but humorous view of the world). The issue certainly delivers plenty of action and we get a glimpse of how powerful the New 52 version of Starfire can be when she looses control and truly lets loose.

Although I enjoyed the final two issues of the arc I’m happy to see it come to and end and return Starfire, Arsenal and Red Hood back to Earth where they belong. Next week should begin “The Death of the Family” crossovers and we should, hopeful, see a confrotation between Jason Todd and the Joker looming before too long. Red Hood and the Outlaws #14 also promises an appearance by Superman. Worth a look.

The story doesn’t explain why BF has SF in a stranglehold on the cover. I know BF is supposed to be a heavy in the pre-52 continuity , but I guess someone missed the memo.

If I remember right, the prior issue teased that the two might be enemies, an idea that seemed to be thrown away almost immediately as the pair team-up to take on The Blight here.

Yeah. Kinda sloppy. And the Superman appearance is pretty pointless. I took him a lot more seriously when he wore red tighties over his blue onesie.
