Red Hood and the Outlaws #21

A large chunk of Red Hood and the Outlaws #21 centers on the ramifications of Artemis finding Bizarro's secret lab with synthetic Kryptonite. Forced into a corner, the Superman clone is forced to confess on his addiction to the substance Lex Luthor used to save his life and which Bizarro has become dependent on in order to keep his enhanced intellect and not regress back into the simple creature he once was. While the pair eventually come to and understanding, it looks like Bizarro's lies to his friends isn't over quite yet.

The rest of the issue deals with the Red Hood undercover in the Iceberg Lounge laundering the money he stole from the Penguin (and winning quite a bit more). Once discovered, Jason is able to extricate himself out of the situation without too much trouble, but he is forced to ask himself (and Alfred) just why he's perusing his current course of action. Breaking up his rare moment of self-contemplation, something new walks in to his life. I'm guessing Faye's package and Bizarro's addiction will propel most of the next issue which appears to include Artemis giving Luthor a piece of her mind. Worth a look.
