Event Leviathan #2

DC's summer event has been all about chaos and misdirection, which makes it hard to buy into the theory postulated here about who is behind the attacks across the DCU on various spy organizations such as A.R.G.U.S., Spyral, the DEO, and others.

Taking place mostly in a single conversation between Batman and the Red Hood, Batman gets his former protege up to speed on events while stalling for a more pressing purpose. During the conversation we're also given a sequence featuring the mysterious leader of Leviathan who seems to know the Justice League intimately.

Given his connection to Talia al Ghul, and the kind of outside the law tactics he likes to employ, I guess it shouldn't be surprising that Batman sees Todd as a potential suspect (although I'm not sure we've seen anything in Rebirth to suggest he has the mental capacity to pull this off, again, making me leery to accept this reveal just yet). Worth a look.
