Event Leviathan #3

Event Leviathan #3 picks up from Batman and the heroes he's gathered wrongly accusing the Red Hood for being the mastermind behind Leviathan. As expected, Jason Todd isn't the one responsible for the attacks on various spy organizations across the DCU, although writer Brian Michael Bendis does up the character's game in making him a legitimate threat to the heroes if he chooses to be in the future.

And, as Todd points out, he does make the perfect patsy for the entire enterprise, further suggesting the involvement of someone behind Leviathan who knows the deepest secrets of Batman and the Justice League.

Back to square one, the heroes compare notes again to try and figure out who exactly Leviathan is and what their endgame might be. Amanda Waller obviously knows more about what's going on than she has shared with the heroes, but the question is will she live long enough to share her intelligence (and would she, even if she gets a chance)? Worth a look.
