Moench and Mandrake conclude the Two-Face/Circe story in Batman 398 (Aug. 86).
While Catwoman and Batman discuss their relationship and partnership, and the effect it is having on Robin, Jason Todd falls in love – or at least into a serious crush – and begins to finally understand why Bruce and Selina are acting the way they are.
Catwoman had been upset that Batman had not informed her that he had contacted and recruited Circe to help him with Two-Face, and he is actually apologetic about keeping her out of the loop. Circe leads Two-Face into the robbery of a golden mask of a pharoah, and appears to knock out a guard, but we see that the guard is really Batman, and the whole thing is a set-up.
It’s a big psychological game, intended to make Two-Face willing to go back to being Harvey Dent. Though Circe plays a romantic game with Dent, it’s odd that at no point in the story does he talk about his wife, Gilda.
Also, in a fairly shocking development, though Two-Face says he will allow the flip of the coin to determine his choice, we see him flip the coin repeatedly, to get the answer he wants. This is not something that has been shown before, and basically goes against everything the character stands for.
Two-Face then plays some make-up games, to make both sides of his face match, both as good, and underneath as bad. He has figured out that Circe was manipulating him wit the golden mask, and none too happy about it. Fortunately, Batman was ready for this.
And though both Robin and Catwoman help out on the case, by the end of the tale, Catwoman has decided that their partnership really is not working for her.
Two-Face is back almost immediately, in Batman 400.
