Super Sons – Parent Trap | Comics

Robin’s past finally revealed to Superboy in a meeting with Talia al Ghul, before Kid Amazo returns to tear the Super Sons apart.

When his dad Superman leaves for a Justice League-level emergency and reporter mom Lois Lane goes Metropolis to investigate on an article for Daily Planet, young superhero Jon Kent is left behind with Damian Wayne, who lands on the school ground of West-Reeve by their trusted family butler Alfred Pennyworth.

Unbeknownst to Damian, his mother Talia al Ghul was secretly keeping an eye on him from nearby and meets him during lunch period only to freak out his friend Superboy by holding her own son with a sword on his throat. She asks him to come with her but Robin declines her offer after freeing himself.

The Super Sons heads to Gotham City and encounters members from League of Assassins before finding out that Talia was hired to kill Lois. Jon and Damian then start scouring through the city to find their mothers to stop one from killing the other.

The shot fired by Talia from a rooftop was timely deflected by Jon while Robin confronts his mother about this contract she took and engages her. Jon would come across Lois on street after taking down a few of the ninjas and Damian would force his mother to leave town after besting her in combat.

Super Sons – Parent Trap | Comics

Two researchers working at LexCorp walks into a room for checking on inventory before Lex Luthor arrives only to discover that the synthetic suit made of Amazo Virus is missing from containment and as the Super Sons were planning for their patrolling schedule for the night on Fortress of Attitude, Kid Amazo suddenly breaks in.

Sending Robin to look for rebreathers, Superboy tackles their former enemy until the villain is hit by an escape pod of theirs. Together, they made an attempt to reach out to surface for seeking help but Jon is grabbed by the leg at the last minute and pulled underwater.

Before Damian could ran out of air, Cyborg came out of nowhere at his rescue and band together looking for Kid Amazo instead of taking him back home. An unconscious Jon is dragged by the suit to an oil rig and discloses how it escaped using Reggie Meyer.

Since the boy was in a weakened condition when bonded, there are high chances of him being dead right now, because his powers were burned out and now it needs an external energy source to feed on. To absorb organic power from new source, he has acquired Batman, Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman.

After draining the entire League, the suit wanted Jon as a host who could survive and filter it to power the armor. Though resistant, he couldn't free his father and friends or even last too long before help could arrive but when it did, he immediately freed himself from captivity.

Since the suit has tapped into the power of Flash, it started to give even Cyborg a hard time. With no chance to seemingly win against the villain, Robin eventually came up with a plan which involves Victor Stone losing to Kid Amazo as a part of gamble he planned.

However, the ongoing Leviathan civil war is what brought her here even though her intentions were never clarified at any point of the encounter (The Silencer – Code of Honor).

Then former Amazo Project came back to life next, looking for revenge by taking down the biggest players of world's greatest superhero team. Except for Aquaman and Green Lantern, almost every core-member of the Justice League showed up in the story, not to save the day but to be saved instead.

Dark Nights – Metal – Dark Knights Rising

Dark Nights – Metal – The Resistance

A major crossover event that has been in the works ever since "Court of the Owls" at the dawn of The New 52 and even connects back to post-Flashpoint event "Final Crisis", "Dark Nights – Metal" is a masterpiece story created by writer Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – Ends of the Earth, Flashpoint – Project Superman) and artist Greg Capullo (Haunt, Spawn).

These two have worked up the core six-issue limited series that have a number of related tie-in issues that comes in "The Road to Metal", "Dark Knights Rising" and "The Resistance" books to fill the necessary gaps to make things matter by a few other.

The Bat Behind The Bat

Writers James Tynion IV (Detective Comics – Rise of the Batmen, Detective Comics – The Victim Syndicate) and Tim Seeley (Batman – Night of the Monster Men, Nightwing – Better Than Batman) along with various other creators have contributed to the plot.

Artists Andy Kubert (Origin, Ultimate Iron Man), Ethan Van Sciver (The Flash – Rebirth, Green Lantern – Rebirth), Jim Lee (Batman – Hush, Superman – For Tomorrow), John Romita Jr. (Superman – Before Truth, Superman – The Men of Tomorrow) and Tyler Kirkham (The Darkness, Tomb Raider) have also take part in illustrating the arc for readers.

Ever since DC Rebirth, DC Comics has never done a crossover this big and it was actually a scheme to re-introduce many new characters and teams into play. References of classic sagas were mentioned and elements were used to build a new tomorrow. Some of the noteworthy appearances were made by Black Adam, Black Manta, Clayface, Deathstroke, Doctor Fate, Nightwing, Robin, Steel, Suicide Squad, Teen Titans and Vandal Savage.

A link to "Death of The Family" and "Endgame" arc was drawn to detailing the origin of Metal and how it is related to Batman. We are treated with an epic team-up during climax that was most unexpected and it even rivals the awesomeness of the World's Finest duo.

As Rebirth continues to bridge between past and future, it does follow up a step from The New 52. When the 'Justice League – Origin' was released, the next storyline, 'The Villain's Journey' was mostly a follow-up that focuses on the aftermath of what happened previously. DC Comics has implemented the same maneuver with 'Outbreak', staging the whole thing as a result of 'Kindred Invasion'.

Putting an alert on Justice League comm link, The Dark Knight reaches to the plane using everything he had at his disposal. Alfred Pennyworth informs shortly that the League members are either off-planet or already engaged, which means no help is coming.

The plane safely lands on water and Batman sees two super-powered youth flying in front of him, calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl, who are here to save the city.

As the Caped Crusader was curious about their appearance out of nowhere and trying to figure out who they are, they pick a fight with Solomon Grundy next day. Gotham asks him to train them so that they can help people more effectively, which he decides to consider.

At the same time a man shows up in Gordon’s office to confess about his involvement in releasing Grundy earlier, then stabbing himself in throat and a few other suicide-bombing takes place throughout the city. Meanwhile, Dr. Hugo Strange and Psycho-Pirate were being drafted to Suicide Squad by director Amanda Waller.

While Gotham and Gotham Girl were busy saving the city, Bruce goes for a little background check on them as Agent Malone. He learns that during their childhood, the boy witnessed his parents getting mugged in an alley way of Gotham, when Batman came to save the day. His young sister heard of it later and it made them eager to become heroes.

In the meantime, the Gotham siblings were holding a bridge out that is collapsing from a suicide bombing. Their mentor quickly reached the spot to help them and instructs them to move on to the next objective as he goes investigating the reason behind the blasts.

The duo goes to take care of another incident only to be confronted by Strange and Pirate among a group of soldiers. The latter turned the twins crazy and unstable with his psychic power before making them do their own bidding of unleashing the unthinkable.

Batman's investigation leads him to Amanda Waller next, who recruited Strange and Pirate to control Task Force X but they eventually betrayed her and got away.

Batman – I Am Gotham

Comic-book writer Tom King (Grayson – Agents of Spyral, Grayson – We All Die at Dawn) and artist David Finch (Brightest Day, Forever Evil) takes up the new monthly ongoing Batman books in the beginning of DC Rebirth from DC Comics. The storyline collects the one-shot Batman – Rebirth issue and issue #01-06 from the ongoing run.

The arc introduced two brand-new superheroes in Gotham City who came to help and pretty quickly things escalated to the point where we get to see the Justice League consisting of Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman going up against one of them in a brawl only to take a severe beating like never before.

Knights of Gotham

Narrator Tom King does the stunt of scaring the readers by playing with the idea that series protagonist is about to die at the very beginning and then toned down everything back to normal and gave him more work to do afterwards, rather than just dying.

The story also teases towards the upcoming crossover "Night of the Monster Men" at several points on multiple occasions, which is also a nod to a six-issue limited series "Batman and the Monster Men" from 2006, the era before Flashpoint crossover. The plot will be continued in the next storyline "I Am Suicide", followed by "I Am Bane".
