Event Leviathan #6

The six-issue mini-series concludes with confirmation that former Manhunter Mark Shaw is the man responsible for stealing Leviathan away from Talia al Ghul and putting it to work to take down the DC Universe's various spy agencies. Batgirl also arrives in time to reveal Leviathan's endgame: leverage and expose various secrets around the world to gain control and gain power (and do what Manhunters were designed to do and bring order).

While far from a flashy choice, Shaw works as the man behind the mask that even revealed leaves him something of a mystery (Superman doesn't even recognize him). With Shaw and Leviathan still at large as the mini-series comes to an end, this offers a chance for further explore both the leader and the organization over the coming months in potentially several different DC titles.

While it makes sense to give her a win given the death of her father, Lois Lane doesn't come off all that well here (more concerned with her byline, which she doesn't plan on sharing, than the fate of the world). Worth a look.
