    The penultimate issue of this crossover series finds the DC heroes and RWBY warriors heading into unknown territory—Arkham Asylum, the center of the Grimm invasion. Lex Luthor has been defeated, but he’s unleashed powers he can’t control. Nightwing and Batgirl have been possessed already, becoming the “mini-boss” of this issue, but both are quickly neutralized with Alfred’s help. That leaves the final boss—Batman himself, possessed by a powerful Grimm that accentuates some of his worst personality traits. Batman always wants control, Batman wants pretty safe, and something that gives him the power to imprison those he views as a threat would be an effective temptation. The design of the Grimm Batman is nice and creepy, and he makes a compelling final villain for the series as we head into a last issue that has a lot to wrap up—and I’m not sure it has enough time to do it smoothly.

    There need to be more actual events going on for each character to have more of a presence on the page. This would also allow the threat to develop in a way that is much more engaging. It feels like Bennett tried to do too much in too small a span of time. It’s very difficult to manage the kind of ambitious storytelling that Bennett is really trying to do with the series. The story needs to be large enough to fill six issues and interact with enough of the DC Universe to really live up to its title. However, there just isn’t enough time for everything. And there isn’t enough time spent on any one thing. It feels cluttered.
