Batman: The Adventures Continue Season Three #5

Batman: The Adventures Continue Season Three #5 wraps up the three issue arc involving the Joker creating slaves by misusing cutting-edge technology for his own ends. As Harley and the Suicide Squad go looking for the Joker, who uses the helmet to turn all but Harley into members of his army, Batman and Robin focus on stopping the out-of-control super-soldier Carl Finley who Joker has turned into his henchman Straightman.

Along with cameos from several Suicide Squad members, mind-controlled to go after Batman in the climax, we get Harley working with the Dynamic Duo as well. I've said this before, but this storyline hasn't been my favorite of the relaunched continuing adventures of the Batman: The Animated Series universe, but the issue does tie up the loose ends, with some fun Suicide Squad cameos, and should allow for something more interesting next month.
