SummaryAdd a Summary
Batman: Hush Returns almost picks up where the last story left off. The book begins with the Riddler crashing through a glass ceiling into a fancy event, then a flashback to a week before, and the new mystery begins.
Our last tale ended with the Riddler off to jail and that's where he is as the story unfolds. Something has Mr. Nigma (Riddler's alter ego) scared to sit tight in the pen he's in and strikes a deal with the Joker. It seems Nigma has a name that Joker wants (hmm, wonder who's) and is prepared to trade his connections to know. One car chase and satellite shuffle later, our flashback concludes with us up to speed on this timeline and Hush facing off with the Joker.
After that encounter Hush decides to bolster his armory and team up with another costumed criminal, Prometheus. Hush tracks Prometheus to his latest location where he is engaged with the Green Arrow. Batman shows and the villains blow, leaving Batman and Green Arrow to hash out some apparently unfinished business.
Everybody makes nice and we are treated to a rare flashback of the Joker's pre-clown history tying in a few threads lead to a climax and multiple showdowns. There is an epilogue giving some origin story to Prometheus and bringing Talia (Ra's al Ghul's daughter and current head of the League of Assassins) back into the fold. With an open ending you can be sure this is not the last we've heard from Hush.
