Really not as god awful as one would expect, but this sets a particular bar. Lil' Bastard gets what he deserved for kidnapping the others, but his twisted methodology had some reasoning behind it. the League of Assassins has decided that Damien and the others will be the prey they need to eliminate to gain rank (not sure what the terminology was, book not in hand). I didn't know the LoA has superhuman members, but this group is pretty lethal and Satan.. I mean Damien, is trying to survive by gathering them. Why you just don't ask Pop's and that group of fairly powerful friends he has to step in.. ? Maybe it was addressed. I'll have to reread the book. Either way he's still the least likable 'hero' I know of in the DCU.
