When we last left off:

Gotham city was under attack by a mysterious virus that only affected
men…and our big hitter superheroes were out of commission. But were we worried? Nope.
because Batgirl, Black Canary, Harley, Poison Ivy, Wonder Woman and more form a great
Amazonian Squad who are about to get to business. And we so patiently waited and are so
excited to see how they are going to do it.

What you need to know:

AHHHHH!!!! Do you see this team?! Omg. We need to know how this is
going down. The writers really need to give themselves a pat on the back. This team of feminist
beauties have so much chemistry that goes so well with each other. They go on a hunt to find
the person behind the virus.
What you’ll find out? While searching for the culprits, they run into some interesting characters
that may help them solve the case. However, they seem to be a bit uncooperative with helping
our heroines and more focused on getting rid of all of the men in Gotham. Who, by the way are
not doing so well… AT ALL!

What just happened?

Our heroines find out who is behind the virus. It goes deeper than anyone of them could
imagine. So much so, that anything I mention further would just be a spoiler. So go on and read
the issue. Go on! Yes, you!

Rating 9/10

Final Thoughts: The writing in this issue is impeccable. All of these women, from different
backgrounds have come together on a team and the chemistry works between them all works
so well can really catch the reader’s attention. Where you have heroes like Wonder Woman and
Black Canary see eye to eye on completing a common goal with villains such as Harley Quinn
and Anti heroes like Huntress? It is really captivating to have all of them show sympathy for
those men who have fallen ill without it seeming like a weakness, but a strength that brings
them together.
