Synopsis for "Wars Ended... Wars Begun"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- This is the first chronological appearance of the Outsiders. However, their first appearance in publication was earlier in Brave and the Bold #200. That story fits into continuity between Batman and the Outsiders #3 and #4.
- This issue includes an editorial by Mike W. Barr in place of the letters column. Barr explains the publication origins of the Outsiders. When Len Wein told him they were canceling The Brave and the Bold to replace it with a team book lead by Batman, Barr volunteered to write the entire series. Marv Wolfman had earlier suggested a team mixing existing characters and new ones. Dick Giordano had suggested that Batman should lead this team. Barr and Wein decided Batman should quit the Justice League so he wouldn't be spread too thin. Barr chose Black Lightning as one of the existing characters because he fit in perfectly with Batman, and Metamorpho because he didn't fit in at all. Barr created Geo-Force, Halo, and Katana. Marv Wolfman noticed that Geo-Force was extremely similar to Terra, a character he developed with George Perez in the New Teen Titans series. Instead of scrapping Geo-Force, Wolfman suggested that the two characters be brother and sister. Jim Aparo became the regular Outsiders artist because of his prior work with Barr on The Brave and the Bold.
