Red Hood and the Outlaws – Who Is Artemis | Comics

In absence of Gotham City crime-lord Black Mask, Red Hood decides to step up and scare the goons of the former mob-boss away but faced with hostility. When they came at him, Bizarro shows up and starts trashing the mobs. As the flawed Superman clone and ex-Robin was doing the clean-up, Killer Croc of Suicide Squad throws Jason Todd up out of nowhere. Feeling extremely protective about Red Hood, Bizarro freezes his head and punched it off, only to reveal it was a synthezoid.

Jason shares his concern about Bizarro to Artemis, who shows him classified videos at LexCorp that all the Bizarro clones were meant to be destroyed because their unstable nature poses a threat to everyone. For the safe of every other living being, Jason makes up his mind to take care of the matter and visits the Batcave to acquire the means to do that. To put him out of his misery, Red Hood takes Bizarro on a trip to a riverside where the latter explains how he sees him and Artemis as friends and eventually, his positivity convinced Jason out of killing him.

Next up, Red Hood and Artemis walks into a bar looking for a man named Stirk, which created a stir and the femme fatale trashed the whole place within moments. She momentarily stunned seeing her old friend Akila but Jason reveals it to be Stirk by knocking him over. Jason asks her about Akila and Artemis starts telling about her time in the fallen town of Bana-Mighdall, training with her best friend to be the champion of her people.

Ages before, one of the Amazon foremothers had a clash with Queen Hippolyta and then they departed from Themyscira as a new pantheon of gods took them in. Though Akila never wanted to become Shim'tar, a champion of the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall, one day she vanished without a trace and was later found by Artemis, who was sure that her friend has been summoned by the gods. When invaders from Qurac attacked, she picked up the Bow of Ra and in an attempt to save her people, Akila doomed them all.

Artemis reached at the scene too late and found Wonder Woman there to take the threat down. Although she attacked Diana at first but soon they teamed-up to defeat Akila possessed by Ra, killing her and Bow of Ra was lost. Today, Red Hood, Artemis and Bizarro go to K'kyesh, Qurac seeing news of chaos by unidentified weapon of mass destruction back there. After their plane is shot out off sky, Bizarro got stranded, Jason is captured by the men of Qurac's General Ahmed Heinle and Artemis faces a ghost from the past.

Outlaws at War

While characters like Batman, The Joker and Lex Luthor appears throughout the story in holograms or visions, Alfred Pennyworth and Wonder Woman made actual cameo appearance. Since Artemis is now a part of Red Hood's Outlaws, Jason took it upon himself and Bizarro to aid her and thus, the bond of the Outlaws became greater than ever. The first Bizarro was actually the creature dubbed as Subject B-0 that died saving Luthor from the assault of Crime Syndicate during the events of "Forever Evil". The one that is hanging out with Artemis and Jason is Bizarro II.
