Suicide Squad #1

Suicide Squad #1 (2011-11)

Interesting! A comic focusing on some bad guys. Inmates recruited to 'Task Force X', also known as the Suicide Squad. Their first mission goes bad, and they're captured by some sadists intent on getting info out of them. Seven go in, six come out, after one gives up info. Turns out it was all a test.

The one in charge of this group is Amanda Waller. Isn't she a government official in the DCU? I think so. She looks a bit different here, and she's giving an unexpected mission: wipe out an entire stadium full of sixty thousand people. Why? Mystery. See next issue.

I like this one, so far. It's a question and a chance to look at some villains. Harley Quinn is there, among others, and I'm intrigued. Let's hope it goes well.
