Outside of Gotham, August 10th, 2012

So, Suicide Squad… eeeeeh. This won't take long. 

So, just as random ancient Mexican tribe is about to sacrifice the Squad, basilisk soldiers, lead by Captain Boomerang (who Deadshot fucked over in #4) intercepts them, and brings them to the Basilisk HQ deep in the jungle. Inside, the Squad meets the leader, Regulus who offers them all a chance to join them, but no one bites. Boomerang then takes the squad deep into the prisons, only to turn on the Basilisk drones, revealing that Amanda Waller wanted him captured the entire time. Freeing the Squad, Boomerang leads the team outside, only to get shocked by the traitor, who is Black Spider. SURPRISE! Oh wait, no… I guessed that in issue #8. Some bad guy talk, and a hypnotic trigger, and it's Black Spider and mind controlled Iceberg, El Diablo and King Shark vs. Deadshot and Harley.


Yeah, who didn't see that coming? Seeing as I had figured out the reveal months ago, I was very disappointed with it here, seeing that it was just that, and no real big twist, other than the mind control shit, which… eh. I don't know, I'm just tired of this arc, it's been very average at best. There was another review that echoed the following thoughts: the book seems to have no heart or soul. It seems like a paint by numbers bad guy team book… what makes it worse is the Secret Six ads at the back of the digital version of the comic, because that is the way you make a book about a group of bad guys. But in the end, the average nature of the book is just loosing me fast seeing that I'm not particularly attached to any of the characters, other than Harley, who is underutilized.
