What Happened: The Parasite steals some Cyrogenic device from a Waynetech truck in Metropolis, which brings Robin(Damian Wayne)to town searching for him. Guardian spots Damian on a rooftop in Metropolis roughing up some z-list villain named Riot. Upon spotting Guardian, Damian drops Riot off the ledge of the building and takes off. Guardian saves the villain from a nasty fall, and winds up apprehending and arresting(HA!!!)Damian. Damian breaks free from his cuffs, KO's a few members of the science police, and makes good his escape. Guardian chases after the little menace and is met with a kick to the throat for his troubles. In the meanwhile, Parasite has brought the stolen cyro unit to Mr. Freeze with the intentions of putting Mon-El in it so Parasite could feed off of Mon-El's powers forever... You know, that's a REALLY good plan... Anyway, Guardian and Damian decide to put their differences aside and the two track the stolen cyro unit to Freeze and Parasite's underground lair. After a short battle, Freeze and Parasite wind up frozen solid, Guardian hands over the cyro unit to Damian, and Damian leaves to go back to Gotham, much to Guardian's relief. This issue ends with the Toyman sending one of his toys to spring Parasite and Freeze, while the Toyman himself is working on an enormous robot that looks half like Superman and half like Batman.
What I Thought: Damian notwithstanding, this was a pretty good comic. Have I mentioned lately that I hate Damian with a passion? Oh, I have? Well then, let's move on. I kind of wish this mini-series was going to last more then 4 parts, I really like the idea of this comic. Next issue stars Supergirl and Batgirl, which means it should be 50% better then this comic was. Why? Because Damian won't be in it!
Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.I just don't understand how anybody can possibly like Damian... I just don't get it...
