Batman #4

The discovery of the bodies of 27 dead soldiers lead Batman down a dark path which will fill-in the truth about Gotham's newest super-heroes Gotham and Gotham Girl and their origins as part of Amanda Waller's Suicide Squad. Solving one mystery, how Waller's plan to help Gotham using the Psycho-Pirate and Dr. Strange backfired, leaves an entirely new problem for Batman to face: how to deal with a murderous unhinged super-being looking to stop the city he's sworn to protect from ever hurting another one of its citizens.

As easy as it is for Batman to find Task Force X's secret Gotham bunker it's going to be that much harder dealing with the mess Waller has left in his lap. While Gotham Girl appears to not be a danger to anyone (at least not yet), Gotham is a loaded gun Hugo Strange has turned on the city all to facilitate his own escape.

Even once Batman takes care of the super-powered hero run amok, he's still got to find Strange (who I'm sure has his own plans for the city, and Batman). Worth a look.
