Review: This issue kicks off in earnest with Deathstroke telling the girl he was tasked with rescuing from Arkham WHY he was rescuing her. Bottom line, her father was a c-list villain named Wavelength, had to give her up, and wants her back. While Deathstroke and the girl are running around the Asylum, Batman(in this instance, Dick Grayson)separates Killer Croc and Osiris, which leads to Osiris leaving the Asylum and apparently the Titans. The Atom talks to a few members of the JLA about the disappearance of Ryan Choi, but really, who cares? Certainly not anybody at DC... Meanwhile, the Titans and the inmates at the Asylum battle for a while, which gives an excuse for us to get Arsenal and Dick together. Dick still believes in Arsenal, but Arsenal is nothing but a worthless junkie(and this is coming from a HUGE fan of his), and basically tells Dick as much. By this point, the Arkham guards arrive on the scene, as does Deathstroke. Deathstroke tells the inmates that him and his team were leaving, and that the inmates could do whatever they wanted to Bats and the guards once he was gone. Dick makes one last attempt to appeal to Arsenal, but Arsenal leaves with Deathstroke and the Titans. From there, Deathstroke takes the girl to Wavelength, and the girl kills him. She then asks to be on the Titans, but Deathstroke slaps a power-dampening collar on her and tells her no. This issue ends with Deathstroke presenting Ink with the man who murdered his son, Slipknot.
Thoughts: Wow, this series is really bad... I mean just when I think it's hit rock bottom, it goes a step lower. Where do I start? The girl Deathstroke rescued was as annoying a character as I've read about all year, I'm SICK of Roy Harper: Useless Junkie, the Asylum story was simply abandoned midway through(first the Titans are fighting the inmates, then they aren't, and then the Titans leave and we never find out what happened...), and Congorilla made an appearance... Seriously, this series is bad... Really bad. I keep holding out hope that it's going to turn around(I mean it has Arsenal, Deathstroke AND Cheshire in it!!!), but with each passing issue, I doubt it more and more.
Score: 3 1/2 out of 10.My GOD is Congorilla ugly!
