Artemis and Red Hood sitting in a tree k.i.c.k.i.n.g the crap out of each other probably!

These two OBVIOUSLY like each other, she came back to help him but both are too stubborn to admit it so they trade (really funny) insults whilst they take on Bizarro who is being controlled by Black Mask. Jason has a plan and leaves Artemis to hold off Bizarro as he draws Black Mask away. Artemis can hold her own in a fight but Bizarro is a Superman clone so it’s not long before he gets the upper hand and Artemis has no choice but to reluctantly go his way.

It’s possible that Jason’s plan is not going the way he wanted but you can never underestimate him it looks as tho he is out of his depth and with Bizarro quickly closing the gap between them he may have both bad guys to deal with pretty soon.

I love how Jason and Artemis interact, they both like each other and respect each other as fighters but its a constant game of one-upmanship with little digs and snipes at each other. Bizarro has a lot more depth to him than you’d think, he isn’t portrayed as a mindless monster he isn’t bad and is, in fact, fighting back against the mind control so who knows what will happen when he reaches the Hood and the Mask!!

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
