TNTM: Justice League vs. Suicide Squad

The World’s Greatest Heroes Face Off Against Belle Reve’s Worst Villains

JLVSSSThe Justice League has long been a popular team for DC Comics. All the heavy hitters in DC’s lineup have been member at some point.

The DC Entertainment movies are building toward the team’s debut on the big screen with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Aquaman. This movie promises to be a big hit. Let’s hope they find a suitable villain that will require them to band together.

The success of Suicide Squad in the theaters tells me people love their villains. The Squad is a collection of some of the deadliest and most intriguing bad guys. They say there is no honor among thieves, but the members of the Squad displayed some good teamwork. There was more than once a member placed the team above themselves.

Problem is these 2 groups are opposed to the other. When the Justice League finds out about the existence of the Suicide Squad they make it their mission to end it. They believe the villains they have worked hard to catch should remain in prison.

The Justice League will do their best to end the Suicide Squad black ops program. One small thing, the Suicide Squad does not want to have their program shut down.

The 2 groups clash over this little disagreement. Oh, and DC has mentioned there is another team in play that has the goods on the whole DC Universe. How exciting!

Official Press Release

With a record-setting 12 million copies sold this summer, DC Entertainment has set the comic book world on fire since REBIRTH launched in June. With 21 of the initial 30 monthly and twice-monthly titles going to press multiple times, comic book fans are already asking, “What’s next?”

The answer arrives this December, as DC announces its first major event of Rebirth: the Justice League facing off against the Suicide Squad. This two-month event will pit DC’s two greatest super-teams against each other in a six-issue weekly miniseries, beginning with a special prelude in the pages of SUICIDE SQUAD #8, and with issues of SUICIDE SQUAD (#9 and #10) and JUSTICE LEAGUE (#12 and #13) serving as tie-ins during January.

The prelude issue sets the stage for issues #1 and #2 of JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD, written by Joshua Williamson (THE FLASH, Vertigo’s FROSTBITE) with art by Jason Fabok (JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR) and Tony S. Daniel (JUSTICE LEAGUE, DEATHSTROKE). Issues #3 through #6 debut weekly throughout January, along with the special tie-in issues of SUICIDE SQUAD written by Rob Williams and JUSTICE LEAGUE by guest writer Tim Seeley (NIGHTWING, GRAYSON).

The day that Amanda Waller has long dreaded has finally come to pass: the Justice League has discovered the existence of Task Force X! America’s paragons of truth and justice won’t take well to a government-sponsored team of black ops super-villains (with bombs implanted in their heads), but before the Justice League can shut down the Suicide Squad, a bigger problem looms: another deadly strike team is lurking in the shadows, one that could expose dark secrets throughout the DC Universe, with ties to the hidden truths of REBIRTH. Longtime enemies such as Batman and Deadshot, the Flash and Boomerang, and Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn will have to put aside their differences when an evil threat once thought lost to the DC Universe makes their return.

“This story is another building block to REBIRTH. With all of our heroes back on the board, it’s the super-villains turn. And the events within will set the stage for REBIRTH Phase 2 as a surprising team emerges and another piece of the puzzle of the future of the DC Universe, and the past, comes into focus,” said Geoff Johns, President and Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment.

“I’m really excited about writing this story,” said Williamson. “This is a great opportunity to remind fans that, outside of Batman, the DC Universe isn’t aware that Task Force X or Amanda Waller even exists. To ultimately bring these villains to light for the entire DC Universe to see should make future Suicide Squad stories that much more interesting. And by the end of the story, both teams may discover that they have more in common than they thought, whether they like it or not.”

The advanced solicitation

The first major event storyline of DC’s Rebirth era is here!

This issue, written by Joshua Williamson with art and cover by Jason Fabok, kicks off an explosive six-issue weekly event! It all begins with a day Amanda Waller always knew would come: the Justice League discovers the existence of the Suicide Squad! This government-sponsored black-ops team of super-villains with bombs implanted in their brains is obviously a deal-breaker for Earth’s paragons of truth and justice! But you can bet that the Wall and her Task Force X won’t go down without the fight to end all fights as this weekly series gets underway!

Suicide Squad Most Wanted Deadshot and Katana

Suicide Squad Most Wanted Deadshot and Katana

Jack and Troy from talk about the upcoming comic book, Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot and Katana.

The six-issue mini-series will showcase the popular characters of Deadshot and Katana, who both are members of the Suicide Squad in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

If you don’t know the story behind Suicide Squad, pull up a chair.  Without getting long-winded about it, they are a group of really bad (or good depending on your viewpoint) villains.  They are a super secret group run by a government group called ARGUS and lead by a woman named Amanda Waller. The government refers to this group as Task Force X, but the members call themselves Suicide Squad.

Before you ask, yes it is the same ARGUS and Amanda Waller you see on the hit TV show Arrow.  If the movie does well we may be some crossover potential.  They have hinted at the Suicide Squad on Arrow a few times already.

Why would these villains agree to go on these missions?  The government allows them to work off their bad deeds and earn freedom if they complete enough successful missions. Why don’t they just run away during a mission you ask?  Good question.  The villains all have miniature bombs implanted in them that ARGUS can detonate if they try to run or stop following orders.  The villains are all in prison for different reasons. Their motivations for joining the Suicide Squad are varied as well.

Now that you have the short and quick version of their history we can jump back into the comic book. DC Entertainment is banking on Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot and Katana doing well with the release of the big screen version in August.

Suicide Squad Most Wanted, will be a double-sized series showcasing two members of the all-villain super-team. The six-issue mini-series will run alongside the current New Suicide Squad monthly comic book and feature two full-length stories per issue focusing on Deadshot and Katana.

Creators on the series will be Brian Buccellato and Viktor Bogdanovic on the Deadshot story (which sees the assassin get a new contract on Lex Luthor) and Mike W. Barr and Diogenes Neves on Katana (who is forced to choose between self-preservation and defending a group of innocent civilians).

If you plan on seeing the movie we highly recommend reading this comic book series first.  You will be able to amaze your non-comic book friends with your knowledge of the less mainstream characters.  As a bonus you will earn some street cred with all your nerdy (a.k.a cool) comic book friends.
