The Bombshells Paradox – In this eight-person Operation, players travel through a rift in time and space to the world of the DC Comics Bombshells to battle the “Bombshell” Talia al Ghul. In her attempts to alter their timeline and change the outcome of World War II, “the Lady al Ghul” has created a tear in reality that must be fixed. Players must stop her and set the universe back on its correct path.
