Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Enchantress, Harley Quinn, Katana, Killer Croc and Flag gets a night off from their duty, while Rustam causes a prison outbreak in Belle Reve and Blackgate Penitentiary. The Squad is brought back to face him but Rustam and his team Burning World took both Katana and Flag captive. Waller flies to New Orleans where she got shot in an alley by a mysterious shadowy figure.

Harcourt interrogates the entire Squad about that night of Waller's death to judge their motives. Upon looking at Waller's autopsy report, Hack confirms Harley about it was actually and not a decoy, who is killed with a perfect shot. This leads the point of Harley's suspicion to one person, the deadliest assassin on the planet; Deadshot. In his secret base, Rustam reveals to Katana and Rick Flag about how Waller manipulated them to join Suicide Squad and offers them to join his cause.

Meanwhile at Belle Reve, Harley angrily confronts Floyd Lawton about Waller's death and Croc got involved in the fight too. Djinn breaks into the facility and disables the brain-bombs implanted to Squad members. Deadshot then shoots Boomerang and walks toward his freedom, betraying the Squad to join Rustam's Burning World. This sudden betrayal of Floyd Lawton may be end of the Squad.

Batman – I Am Bane | Comics

In her attempt to recruit doctor Hugo Strange and the second-string villain Psycho-Pirate into Task Force X, Amanda Waller accidentally set them free. Strange then unleashed his Monster Men on Gotham to wreck havoc on the city (Night of the Monster Men) and Pirate to critically affect the psyche of young super-hero siblings Gotham and Gotham Girl (I Am Gotham). Though her brother did not survive in the end, Gotham Girl was suffering from a phobia that only Psycho-Pirate could save her from.

Batman – I Am Bane | Comics

So, Batman took it upon himself to assemble his very own version of Suicide Squad with several key-individuals from Arkham to raid the island of Santa Prisca and kidnap Pirate, which he did upon confronting his dreaded enemy Bane. Since, Bane brought Pirate to cure his own life-long addiction to the Venom serum, he decides to come to Gotham and break everyone Batman cares about after this.

So, at Superman's Fortress of Solitude, Batman put Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin into a suspended animation for their own safety. Meanwhile, Alfred escorted Gotham Girl at Arkham Asylum under the disguise of a criminal and forces Roger Hayden to start her treatment with Psycho-Pirate's Medusa Mask. Bronze Tiger is taken down at his own hotel room, Bane's accomplice Bird shoots down Catwoman, then Trogg and Zombie tries to sneak attack on Commissioner Jim Gordon, only to be taken down with the aid of Duke Thomas.

Eventually, they all end up getting captured by Bane, who asks for Psycho-Pirate in exchange for their lives. In Batman's stern refusal, a furious Bane charges at him with the full power of Venom and savagely beats him to a pulp while they both recall their struggle as kids. In his last ditch attempt to stop his unstoppable enemy, Batman lured his nemesis into Arkham Asylum and freed all of the super-criminals to stop Bane. But can they really stop the man who doesn't fear anyone and once broke the Bat?

When this all ends for good at some point, Batman and Catwoman have some personal scores to settle among themselves that will surely change the life of these two forever.

Guy Gardner visits the smuggler's corridor to find his old pal Space Cabbie, who can help them find the rogue Corps members spreading across the galaxy. Guardian Ganthet and Sayd were also found and returned back as the Guardians of the Universe once again. They tasked Hal and Kyle to seek out the final keeper of the blue light of Hope and bring back to the universe.

Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner traveled to the transluminal space and after fighting the Death Dragons for some time, they found Saint Walker at the grasp of the vicious Misery Mound. The Mound consumes the minds of Hal and Kyle using their worst nightmares against them but ultimately, these two Lanterns managed to overcome its grasp with the power of their sheer will. John Stewart was prepping the Corps for their missions when he noticed Guy Gardner was missing.

Meanwhile, Guy took it upon himself to find the rogue Sinestro Corps member Arkillo and bring him back to custody. What follows after this is a bloody-brawl without their rings, which Gardner eventually came out victorious but at a large personal cost. Back at Mogo, Ganthet and Sayd asks Kyle to try and bring back the fallen members of the Blue Lantern Corps but in the process of doing so, he lost his power of White Light.

At Sector Zero, the wielder of Green and Yellow Light were working together to build a Central Power Battery. While this makes both Jordan and Rayner uncomfortable, John Stewart begs to differ on their perspective for once. Soon, unspoken tension among the two Corps rise and a massive brawl breaks out where Green and Yellow Lanterns starts besting each other until Guy Gardner and Arkillo breaks it off and put some sense into their fellow Lanterns.

Seeing will and fear working in unity, Ganthet, Sayd and Saint Walker finally believes that perhaps there is hope for this universe after all. Then a blast from the future hits the Corps as the time-traveling superhero Rip Hunter returns to present time from a dystopian future to warn the Corps about the menacing Prism Beasts, who erased the Green Lantern Corps in the future.
