A part of DC Universe: Rebirth!
Jason Todd, a.k.a. Red Hood has been many things--a Robin, dead, the Red Hood--now he's back and he's embracing his bad side!
With his new status as a villain, Red Hood plans to take down Gotham's underworld from the inside. Joined by a fallen Amazon named Artemis and a half-baked Superman clone named Bizarro, this dark trinity will soon discover that the line between hero and villain is harder to discern than they might think.

“RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS has become the latest in a long line of DC books to receive a boost thanks to Rebirth.” —IGN
The title sees Red Hood infiltrating the organization of Black Mask in order to dismantle the group from the inside. During his infiltration, he meets up with Amazonian warrior Artemis (more in line with her classic appearance from the 90's Wonder Woman books than with her appearance as a female Arrow in Young Justice) as well as a second failed clone of Superman: the new Bizarro. Black Mask hopes to make Bizarro his own personal weapon and turns to Red Hood to break the creature for him. I loved the references to Bizarro's first "appearance" during Forever Evil when he was a childlike clone in Lex Luthor's employ. This is a brand new clone but acting much in the same manner as that first one. Artemis has her own mission that brings her to Gotham, though much of her back story for now is a mystery and seems to be set for expansion in the second volume. The best aspect is certainly the characters with Red Hood and Artemis quickly developing a great, sarcastic rapport and with Red Hood playing Batman-like father figure to the confused Bizarro. The relationship between Jason and Batman is also wonderfully on display here and it is this book more than any other of Lobdell's previous books that won me over on the idea of Red Hood being a hero again instead of a villain like in his first appearances post-Infinite Crisis. A great read with beautiful art throughout. My only gripe was Black Mask's over-the-top gimp mask redesign, but by the book's end he is more in line with his classic appearance.
I absolutely loved this. I was a little on the fence about Rebirth and changing the roster of the Outlaws, but I have to say that I'm pleasantly and thoroughly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading the story.
The artwork is fantastic, and the writing is great. The chemistry between the characters works really well. I cannot wait for volume two.
Jason is smart, funny, talented, and self conscious to the point of debilitation.
Artemis is strong, fierce, beautiful, and arrogant to the point where she will let her inferiors beat her.
And Bizarro. Probably the best character... not much else to say on him.
