Batman – I Am Suicide | Comics

Ex-Suicide Squad member Psycho-Pirate's mental manipulation previously drove the powerful meta-human Gotham mad and he spent all of his life force fighting the entire Justice League. His sister Gotham Girl remained mentally scarred and unstable by Pirate's manipulation in Wayne Manor. Batman decides to get Psycho-Pirate back to fix her up. In Santa Prisca, Bane has his men bring the Pirate to him to help him get rid of the addiction of Venom.

To restore Gotham Girl's psyche, Batman takes it upon himself to a suicide mission of acquiring the villain from Bane's fortress. He visits Arkham Asylum cells to recruit inmates needed for his cause accompanied by Dr. Jeremiah Arkham. With his own Suicide Squad consisting of Bronze Tiger, Jewlee, Punch, Ventriloquist and Catwoman, he heads for Peña Duro prison on the island of Santa Prisca to confront the only man who once broke him.

As they were flying over the sovereign airspace of Santa Prisca, the Batwing is shot-down and hundreds of Bane's militia then tries to physically overwhelm Batman, who gets caught purposefully. Even without the help of venom, Bane brutally punishes Batman for invading his sovereign country and mocking his laws, then locked him up in the very cell where the latter grew up. He also reminds The Bat that just because he has he has invaded his land, his friends in the Justice League cannot come for him either.

After setting his bones right, Batman eventually escapes from his captivity after a lot of struggle to lead Ventriloquist and Catwoman to the inner cell-blocks, while constantly reminding himself that he's going to break Bane's damn back if he doesn't give up Psycho-Pirate to him. Bronze Tiger hands over former Peña Duro escapee; Punch and his lover Jewlee to Bane in return for a favor he was about to ask to him.

Meanwhile, The Dark Knight fights through the armed forces, scales the prison, lands into the nearby ocean and swims back to finally confront Bane. However, before Bronze Tiger could act according to Batman's plan, Catwoman jumped into the middle of them and revealed the plan to the villain to save her own life from a certain death sentence in exchange for a plane and a lot of cash to help her disappear forever.

Tom King re-defined The Dark Knight for "Rebirth" and set a new tone! His own Suicide Squad was a wild-ride!

Not to mention, he took a huge risk taking all those baddies out of Arkham Asylum. The ending climax was awesome!
