With Gotham City plunged into a blackout, Tarantula attempts to take down the Penguin...but she's gonna have to get through Deadshot first! Meanwhile, Hush makes a decision that will have a devastating impact on the gang war!
Summary of Stephness: Spoiler's War Journal records Steph's desperate attempts to get to Orpheus to fix the plan, dodging bullets and rockets. She is taken on by five toughs, and easily takes them all down, then sends them to a hospital. She makes it to Orpheus, running through fire, only for someone to slice Orpheus's throat and kill him just as she starts explaining the plan.
Behind the Scenes: Jae Lee and June Chung provide the cover for this issue, as they would later do for the regular cover of the finale of Batman Eternal. However, that crossover story line went much better for our favorite eggplant-clad vigilante.
