high and low, but one man has taken a stand against evil of
all forms: the dark avenger known as Batman. Now, in this
huge, low-priced collection of Batman's adventures with his
own super-team, The Outsiders, the Dark Knight is joined by
Black Lightning, Geo-Force, Halo, Katana, Looker and Metamorpho
as they take on villains including Agent Orange, the Fearsome
Five, the Force of July and the Masters of Disaster...
Presents: Batman and the Outsiders: Volume 1 is a value-packed
volume, which deals with Batman's formation of the original
Outsiders. Metamorpho, Black Lightning, Katana, Halo and Geo-Force
star in these stories from Batman and The Outsiders
#1 - 19, Brave & Bold #200 and New Teen Titans
has been an integral member of the famed Justice League of
America (JLA) since its inception - helping the group in saving
the world numerous times. But when a trusted friend goes missing
in the war-torn country of Markovia, Batman seeks the help
of his fellow JLA members for a rescue mission - and is rejected.
The World's greatest superheros have made a promise to the
State Department not to interfere in the ailing country's
affairs, which leaves Batman with only one choice.
The Outsiders. Black Lightning, electrical powerhouse; Metamorpho,
elemental shapeshifter; Katana, wielder of the Soultaker sword;
Halo, multipowered Aurakle; and Markovia's own Geo-Force,
whose power comes from the earth. Together Batman leads his
new ragtag team of Outsiders to tackle the problems of the
world that no one elses dares to face.
just under 550 pages, this collection will keep fans entertained
for quite some time. The only slight problem is that the entire
volume is reprinted in black and white - which might put some
potential readers off. Although, in all honesty, once you
get wrapped up in the story it doesn't actually matter. This
could be the best £13 you part with.
