A rogue Predator comes to Gotham to take on Batman. A group of Rule Keepers [for lack of a better word] is after the Rogue Predator.
At the same time, a group of Super Mercs have been hired to take out Batman.
So you have Predator versus Predator, Predator versus Batman, Predator versus Mercs and Batman versus Mercs.
If that isn't complicated enough, the Huntress is hunting down the criminal who hired the mercs and gets involved herself.

My Thoughts:
This wasn't as enjoyable as the previous battle. Part of it was the novelty was gone but part was the story itself. The Huntress just didn't fit in and it made things awkward.
Also, I had forgotten just how sexualized women usually are in comics. My goodness, talk about a lot of cleavage, leg and butt.

The "bad ass" rogue Predator wasn't. He just kills a lot.
*wave hands and make scary ghost noises*

This was just 'meh' for me. It didn't appeal. I didn't hate it, but I sure wasn't loving it.
