Batman and the Outsiders #5: Pages 13

Now, if Dr. Light's left-hander made Starfire crash, his right-hander has a completely different effect on Halo. Suggestive effect...Of course - and not that I can be bothered to check out Dr. Light's actual powers - I have a theory about this moment. It's not that Dr. Light has hypnotic power (or else imagine what he would do with it), but that Halo is so immensely stupid that his suggestion just placed itself inside her empty head and became her own idea. In fact, no one is more surprised than Dr. Light himself!
Oooh, should have watched out for that curveball!

Raven has been smitten with Halo since she saw the girl's room and wondered what it would be like if Trigon has put the Barbie Camper she so wanted under the Christmas tree, so it's no wonder she's the first to want to save her.
Why don't I have a single other memory of her astral projection acting like that? It's never been more gooey.
The new mystery about Halo is that she can turn on you like THAT! Still want her in the team? Ok, suit yourself. The other mysteries, if you're keeping score, are that she is dumb as a post and that she has unreliable powers. Batman sure knows how to pick 'em. 12-year-olds and THIS.

Good thing the Outsiders also have Black Lightning, takin' care of bidness.
And apparently, Dr. Light smells too. BL really is the go-to guy.

How many teams do you need to take down a B-list villain? Two. This IS page 13.

I also have to think Dr. Light crapped himself when he got that mega-shock from Lightning. No wonder when he got his memories back he just had to rape something.

Sigh.

Obviously Batman doesn't trust Halo, so being Batman, he wants her nearby so it'll be easier to unleash his patented Hero Gone Bad Contingency Plan when the need arises.

He would have done it right then, if not for those meddling Titans.

Is it just me or is Black Lightening the only one on that team that ever manages to do anything useful?

It's like, while Halo is busy being dumb, Batman's busy on a power trip and Katana's busy talking about her sword, Black Lightening's thinking, "fine, *I'll* go take care of the villain. Again."
