Batman and the Outsiders #0: Pages 3-4

First Outsider ever seen by the general public: Halo. (Mike Barr WANTS this project to fail.)In this confusing sequence, Halo seems to have gotten a job as a candy striper. When did THIS happen? I know it's volunteer work, but how could she ever pass an interview when 1) she likely doesn't know what candy is and 2) she likely doesn't know what a hospital is. And am I the only one disturbed by the fact that Gotham General Hospital allows candy stripers to administer medicine? Cuz that's what that tray looks like.

To add to the list of stuff Halo doesn't know: That the Clash is a band. I think we can almost forgive her that one, except it really means she doesn't know anything about bands or their nomenclature. As always, Halo is oblivious to a little something I call CONTEXT.
Don't mind the patient with the outrageous boner in the background and marvel at Halo's mastery of the American idiom!
And now, our villains. In addition to their suicide plot, their bright idea is to show people how badly US foreign policy has made people suffer around the world by burning... burn victims! Next on the agenda, stealing from the poor, spraying graffiti over graffiti and stabbing corpses.
Toilet humor aside, there's a deleted scene somewhere that has Batman teach Halo how to change clothes by thought alone.
First introduction to the Outsiders, and the big dilemma is whether or not the heroine can change into her costume.
She may or may not be fireproof (her heat aura is probably flame resistant, no?), but by golly she can fire heat beams through her hands. Uhm, Halo? Anytime girl.
I guess you can't miss at point blank range. That armpit is gonna sting tomorrow.*

*Supposing the villains fail at committing suicide, of course.

Halo doesn't know the Clash? She's deader to me than ever.
