Steph to Tim: "You want me to make fun of your last costume again, with the showgirl wings?"

“Rise of the Batmen” part five! Batman, Batwoman, and the entire team take the fight to the deadly Colony! Those highly trained operatives took the Bat-team apart on their own turf…so how will they fare when the Colony is in its element, with all their weapons trained on our heroes?

Summary of Stephness: Steph holds her own in Batwoman's attack plan, maintaining excellent situational awareness, and saving Tim from a trap set by the General by using the Colony's remote weapon activation tools to explode Tim's attacker's grenades on their belts, and swinging the former Boy Wonder to safety. She even gets in a few digs about his n52 wings.
