Firefly and his new student are caught by Batman in the most obvious place. Seemingly it was all as bait when Two-Face comes from the shadows to confront Batman about some old friends in town. Blaming Jim Gordon for their return and later saving him when none other than Kobra raids the GCPD, telling Jim that as he spares his life. Bruce tracks down Dent to the end of the line where they make an uneasy alliance to purge this threat from Gotham once and for all.
With uneasy alliance made, Bruce and Two-Face begin to talk about the return of Kobra, a shadow organization run by checkmate. Jim, following his old senses, ends up on Harvey’s loft as well. Where they discuss that the simple murder that out Bruce on this trail was the murder of Karl Twist, a man Dent couldn’t convict, one that Dent became the dominant of his faces to kill. Two-Face couldn’t handle the stress of Dent killing someone, made his existence meaningless. So he hired the two Fireflies to burn the traces, two shots to the victim, and two guns at the crime scene to solidify that it was Two-Face and not Dent, regardless of being the same mane.
Really I am enjoying the return of Kobra, the impact they had on Gotham last appearance was one that’s very hard to forget. With Checkmate looming in the background, I can’t wait to see what this trio of yesteryear is capable of. Out of the court and into the field, how well will Two-Face be able to play with others?
