red-hood-and-the-outlaws-8-coverThe Red Hood returns to Gotham along with Starfire and Arsenal in an issue that gives us the backstory of Suzie Su and begins to weave Jason Todd back into the Bat-Family (at least for the foreseeable future).

The Outlaws show up Gotham to take down Su who is holding the residents of the Children’s Ward at Gotham General Hospital hostage in order to draw out the Red Hood and take revenge for the murder of her entire clan.

The Suzie Su story works well enough, but the issue is memorable for two other reasons. The first the Red Hood responding to Alfred‘s message for help with the Court of Owls unleashing their assassins across Gotham. The choice of the man Red Hood is supposed to save should make for a fun next issue.

And the second is a small scene between Todd and Tim Drake that suggests the pair have an interesting relationship that may not be sanctioned, or known about, by the Dark Knight Detective. Worth a look.
