Spoiler Returns in DETECTIVE COMICS #957 (Exclusive Preview)

If you haven’t been reading Detective Comics during DC Rebirth, you’ve been missing out on some of the best Batman Family stories in decades. Over the past year, Batman and Batwoman have been putting the younger crime fighters like Red Robin, Spoiler and Orphan through a “Bat Boot Camp” to better prepare them for a harsh future, and it hasn’t been easy. In just a year, writer James Tynion IV has put Bruce Wayne and his surrogate family of costumed vigilantes through the wringer.

Batwoman/Kate Kane had to choose between her father and her loyalty to the Bat, Cassandra Cain/Orphan had to fight her birth mother (the assassin Lady Shiva), and Red Robin/Tim Drake died (well, not really, but Batman thinks he’s dead). Because of Red Robin’s death, his girlfriend Stephanie Brown, a.k.a. Spoiler, decided the vigilante life wasn’t for her, and that Batman and his sidekicks actually make Gotham City worse, not better. But regardless of her feelings on Batman and his soldiers, Steph has to put the Spoiler costume on once more to take on a deadly villain–and do it without Batman’s help.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“The Wrath Of Spoiler”! Stephanie Brown wants nothing more than to save Gotham City from the epidemic of costumed vigilantes and madmen that regularly tear the city apart. But before she can try to stop them, she must face the challenge of one in particular: the insane idealogue the Wrath is back, and Stephanie knows what he has planned—but she refuses to let Batman risk more lives to stop him. That means it’s all on her…and a very unlikely ally!

Detective Comics #957  is due to hit stores on Wednesday, May 24.
