They Really Did That! (Red Hood and The Outlaws #24 Comic Review)

Red Hood and The Outlaws #24-Dead Wrong

Writer: Scott Lobdell

Artist: Dexter Soy and Allison Borges

Cover: Trevor Hairsine and Antonio Farela

Color: Veronica Gandini

Letters: Taylor Esposito

Synopsis: We have an unlikely team up with some old Outlaws and an old foe, meanwhile Jason is trying to find his father.

What You’ll Need To Know: Ma Gunn hid a major secret from Jason all these years, letters from his estranged father. She is missing but in light communication with Jason. He had grown up hating his father for what had happened to his mom and for him leaving….He was on the streets before Batman took him under his wing. This probably is the reason Jason harbors a lot of pain and hate in his heart with no sympathy for villains. He learned his father was not around because he was a goon for all the big bads of Gotham, including Penguin. However, what his father (Willis Todd) didn’t know is that his job was being more than just a henchman, it was to take the fall for Penguin which ended up in heavy prison time. Penguin was already a thorn in the Red Hood’s side, but now he has really taken things to a personal level.

In This Issue: Bizarro is back to himself. We did see that the team is at an understanding for his wishes to be super smart again and they’re working on it…Artemis had even gone to Luthor himself. The security matrix that he has created for The Watchtower has gone rogue. It is about to self-destruct and if it does, the explosion could kill tens of thousands. Artemis is the only one who can stop it. Bizarro is having a hallucination…sort of. Smart Bizarro probably could have handled this way easier. He would always solve the problems. The Watchtower isn’t the only one going rogue as Jason confronts Penguin PUBLICLY at the opening of his park. It was a stupid choice considering Jason basically outed his secret identity. Red Hood is probably just going to have Penguin arrested or spill nasty footage of Penguin out to the civilians right? He made a promise to Batman to not kill, and he’s done great so far right? Well, that was going good before he shot Penguin in the face! In front of everybody. So not only are the cops chasing him, but now Batman. To take him down as every other criminal, this is going to be rough!

Summary
Wow! That was intense, Red Hood actually murdered The Penguin. This is a big move for Rebirth, will we be seeing this villain again? This is going to create a ton of conflict between Batman and Red Hood, which may result in Batman trying to arrest him. This is going to be as painful as when Jason came back from the grave. As always, the art is great and detailed, Soy and Borges made a good combination.
Good
  • Major villain death
  • We're going to have a lot of great material for the future
  • Whole storyline is dramatic and has to deal a lot with Jason's family
Bad
  • Little explanation for how we got Starfire and Arsenal
