SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read SUICIDE SQUAD #25 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
The scales were tipped in SUICIDE SQUAD #24 as the Crime Syndicate and the trapped inmates took the power of Belle Reve away from Amanda Waller. And operating out of Belle Reve is another team pretending to be Waller and the Suicide Squad! The stakes are higher than ever as the two teams head for the same target: O.M.A.C.! Will Waller’s originals survive the onslaught? Or will the new recruits take them out?
“I like trying to motivate bad guys to do good things – that's half the story, you know?” Matt Kindt recently told COMIC BOOK RESOURCES. “It's one thing when you have the Justice League; they want to do good, that's what they're motivated to do. But with Suicide Squad you have two stories – you have their mission and what they have to do, and then the other story is how Amanda Waller gets these villains to do this. Then their interaction can have a lot more friction to it.”
Now, in SUICIDE SQUAD #25, Amanda Waller is in over her head. Or at least up to the explosive collar around her neck. Trapped in Belle Reve, Waller is fortunately on home turf and has a few tricks left up her sleeve. Having run the Suicide Squad out of the prison, she knows every level. Even those not on the blueprints. But if the trick up her sleeve wants her blood, how can she use it to her advantage?
Below, take a look at the final page of SUICIDE SQUAD #25, and sound off in the comments section about the monster unleashed from Level 7! Is this mysterious creature another tool for Waller to manipulate? Or a weapon against her?
A FOREVER EVIL tie-in, SUICIDE SQUAD #25, written by Matt Kindt and illustrated by Patrick Zircher, is available in stores now.
