Batman: The Adventures Continue #6

On orders from Lex Luthor, Deathstroke finally shows his true colors while luring Batman into his trap by promising the Dark Knight Detective a chance to take down Firefly (who, like Deathstroke, isn't what "he" appears to be).

While still on the periphery of the larger story, and not willing to see someone take out Batman and ruin his plans, Jason Todd leaves just enough clues for Batgirl and Robin to show up and help lend a hand against the assassin. Although, did Batman really need their help?

The issue is punctuated with the battle between Batman and Deathstroke, but with the later finally out of the way the more interesting story can begin. Just what does Jason Todd have in store for the Bat-Family? And in what guise does he plan to reintroduce himself when he finally steps out of the shadows. His current look seems to suggest Hush but that doesn't mean once he's ready to take a more active role that we won't see the Red Hood or some other variation before the arc comes to an end.
