    When the Crime Syndicate cuts the power and frees the Arkham Inmates, Sumo quickly joins the Inmates and attacks Blackgate Penitentiary along with many of the other inmates. There Sumo takes down Tweedledee and Tweedledum almost single-handedly.

    Then later when the war spills out onto the streets, Sumo takes down Reaper, but when he tries to take down the Talon, who Bane has enlisted, Sumo is burned badly by a misfired fireball from Firefly.

    Sumo soon recovers and is present at Scarecrow's meeting where he and other former inmates are infected by Venom. Sumo and the now super-strong inmates go after Bane directly. Although Sumo is seen with the group at Black Gate when they first confront Bane, he is not seen later when Bane finally beats the Inmates back at Arkham.

    Ether way it can be assumed that Sumo loose his venom powered Super-strength, although her already posses strength.
