Detective Comics #936

Betrayal is the theme of Detective Comics #936. With Batman taken down by an elite team of armored Bat-soldiers, Batwoman activates her team of Red Robin, Stephanie Brown, Clayface, and Cassandra Cain. Needing all the help she can get, Batwoman also enlists the help of her father Colonel Jacob Kane and that's when things go from bad to worse for our heroes.

Revealing that the U.S. Military is behind the Bat-soldier strike force which is under Kane's control, Batwoman's father uses her misplaced trust to have the team attack the heroes' base. Neither the betrayal nor her father's offer to join the sanctioned team shakes Batwoman's purpose. Getting her entire team out of danger, now the real struggle begins as the heroes will be forced to take on the United States Government, stop whatever they have planned, and save Gotham's greatest son.

The military twist an interesting one. I'll be interested to learn just what the Bat-soldiers true mission is and why it was necessary to remove Batman and his sidekicks from the equation. Worth a look.
