The Rundown: Infected with a batarang meant for her cousin, Kara is ready to show the world what a real hero is.
Kara is one of the Batman Who Laughs Infected and the poison in her system is prompting her to show the world what kind of hero she really is. It’s her drive to do heroic acts that continues to give Superman and Batman hope that there is both a way to reach her and a possibility of curing her.
As they both fight with her throughout the city, Kara continues to pull away but when she encounters someone from her recent past, the real her tries to return only to be brought back by the Batman Who Laughs.
The Story: This was a fun follow up to the Batman/Superman storyline and an effective tie-in to the Infected storyline. Jody Houser does a great job with the characters, especially Kara and I really enjoyed not only the back and forth with Superman, but her conversation with Batman. This seemed to be one of the strongest moments in the issue and enhanced the story a lot. There are still a lot of dangling plots involving Kara and I look forward to getting back to those once this story is over.
The Art: Rachael Stott delivers some amazing art in this issue. All of the fights are beautifully rendered, the characters look great and the action is fantastic.
