DC Comics Universe and Red Hood and The Outlaws #25 Spoilers follows.
Who (Two Different People In Fact) Helps Jason Todd BEAT Batman TWICE Plus What Are The Fates Of Bizarro and Artemis?
Batman confronts his second Robin, Jason Todd, now Red Hood about his assassination of the villain Penguin. They battle and…
…Bizarro ends it for his ally Red Hood.
Artemis, Bizarro and Red Hood are dealing with averting a massive casualty event due to their ticking timebomb of a base.
The first sacrifice appears to be Bizarro.
We also get bi-sexual Artemis embracing Jason Todd before…
…she becomes the apparent second sacrifice in averting the massive casualty event.
Their efforts are successful, but Batman is still around to…
…strip Jason Todd of his red Bat symbol.
However, Arsenal (an original Outlaw with Starfire who is part of Justice League Odyssey now and MIA in this issue) saves his buddy from Batman…
…that leads to final chapter…
….in Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2 out on August 29, 2018.
Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2
(W) Scott Lobdell (A) Clayton Henry (CA) Kenneth Rocafort
The boys are back-Red Hood and Arsenal, together again! Sort of. While Jason Todd is recovering after a brutal beatdown from the man who taught him everything he knows about brutal beatdowns, Roy Harper divides his time between being a nursemaid to his bestie and tracking down the source of tainted drugs that have killed thousands. It isn’t long before the two find themselves in Beijing battling the Sisters of Suzie Su! All this and…the inexplicable fate of Artemis and Bizarro!

I should also add there was a back-up story that was fun and touching in this issue. Let me just post this one page from it. You should seek out the book to read it though.
Then next month we have Red Hood and the Outlaws #26. The book isn’t called Red Hood alone, despite the focus on his new costume, attitude and status quo.
Red Hood and the Outlaws #26
(W) Scott Lobdell (A/CA) Pete Woods
Jason Todd’s about to take this vigilante game to a whole new level. His partners, Bizarro and Artemis? Gone! His mentor, Batman? Out! His base of operations, Gotham City? Abandoned. Cast out and alone, Red Hood embarks on a bold, brutal new mission, with a new costume, new weapons and a new plan to punish evildoers across the DCU. Plus, Pete Woods (JUSTICE LEAGUE) joins writer Scott Lobdell as this new era begins!

Could Bizarro and Artemis return or a new set of Outlaws emerge? I don’t think Arsenal will be around…
…as I think he’ll die in Heroes in Crisis #1.
Heroes in Crisis #1
(W) Tom King (A/CA) Clay Mann
There’s a new kind of crisis threatening the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from real-world headlines by C.I.A.-operative-turned-comics-writer Tom King: How does a superhero handle PTSD? Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat. But something goes inexplicably wrong when many patients wind up dead, with two well-known operators as the prime suspects: Harley Quinn and Booster Gold! It’s up to the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to investigate-but can they get the job done in the face of overwhelming opposition?

Finally, if you’re interested in OG Outlaw Starfire, she’ll appear next in Justice League Odyssey #1.
Justice League Odyssey #1
(W) Joshua Williamson (A) Stjepan Sejic (CA) Terry Dodson, Rachel Dodson
Spinning out of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! When a cosmic menace threatens worlds beyond our own in the Ghost Sector, it falls to a new Justice League team to answer the call to battle! Cyborg, Starfire, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz and an out-of-his-element Azrael head to deep space inside a commandeered Brainiac Skull Ship. But as these wildcard teammates try to stop Despero from slave-trading Coluan refugees, they discover something that nothing in the universe could have prepared them for: Darkseid…who says he’s there to help?!
