DC Comics and Batman: Urban Legends #3 Spoilers and Review follows.

Red Hood’s Redemption…

…Grifter and WildCATs’ Ascension…

…New Outsiders’ Series Fall 2021 and…

…More!

The book also ends with creators credits.

The first story features…

…Red Hood trying to make amends for killing a criminal…

…whose mom appears to be in a drug related coma…

…leaving the boy in the need of care by Dr. Leslie Thompkins.

That leaves Batman and Red Hood in search of who is supplying this new drug cheerdrops in Gotham City as all signs point to the Scarecrow; as an aside Batman doesn’t seem that bothered at Red Hood’s murder revelation.

Anyhow, they disagree on tactics so…

…they split up with Red Hood seeking Oracle’s help again…

…to track down the real threat here…

…Mister Freeze?!

We also get a story about Lady Shiva who is on a downward spiral, but…

…eventually comes to be at peace knowing her daughter Cassandra Cain is living a good life.

We also get the conclusion of the Outsiders story with…

…the revelation of a new Fall 2021 Outsiders series?!

The book ends with the Grifter story after he seduces Lucius Fox’s executive confidante Chance and…

…even filmed it for fun or blackmail with the seeming help of Ladytron…

…who looked like this back in the day.

We later see Cole Cash aka Grifter have lunch with his boss Lucius Fox which is interrupted by…

…who noted John Lynch spoke highly of him at one point…

…yes that old school Team 7 and Gen 13 founder John Lynch.

Later, Batman joins Grifter after he is ambushed…

…with Grifter pulling the patent-pending disappearing trick of Batman.

Turns out, Cole Cash was going to hack Lucius Fox’s system, but things don’t go according to plan as the system is more secure than expected and…

…Lucius Fox and Bruce Wayne are in the building forcing Grifter to get creative.

It has been implied in the main Batman series and this series that Grifter is working for Marlowe presumably Jacob Marlowe aka Lord Emp of WildCATs infamy.

Marlowe company Halo Corporation has also been mentioned.

The Pulse:

A really meaty, satisfying read despite different story features and creative teams. Compelling stuff particularly the Red Hood and Grifter tales. The Lady Shiva story evoked the feels with the Outsiders being the weakest of the bunch yet still a fun read at times. 7 out of 10.
