Beware the Batman #5

When an old enemy decides to get revenge on Katana Batman's new partner finds herself public enemy number one. To clear her name and prove that one of Battleaxe's apprentices is actually impersonating her and committing crimes under Katana's name, Batman's partner will have to stick clear of police while tracking down a mirror image of herself.

As with the last issue, Beware the Batman #4 relies on characters that were never introduced in the television show. Given how the character is introduced here, I wonder if there was a script on the show to introduce the character of Battleaxe that simply never got made (or aired).

Katana vs. Katana works well, and gives the police a heightened reason to target Batman and his partner. Of course all this leads up to next month's premature final issue of the series told completely from the perspective of Alfred. Worth a look.
