The follow up to last issue’s Batman and Robin adventure finds the Dynamic Duo battling Clayface. Although the villain is Matthew Hagen, he gets a new origin here as a member of the Legion of Assassins, and the former lover of Talia, who was locked in the Lazarus Pit when she discovered he was using his relationship with her for his own chance at immortality.
Although the rest of the Young Justice team makes an appearance here, as do Batman and Robin, most of the issue sets up Talia’s failed relationships with both Batman and Hagen and teaches readers a very valuable lesson – never trifle with the feelings of Ra’s al Ghul‘s daughter.
Next issue should see less flashbacks and more of the team battling this new version of Clayface but I’ve got to say I’ve enjoyed the past two issues focusing on Batman and Robin and now Talia. Worth a look.
