Today, the top secret government strike force known as Task Force X—but lovingly referred to by its members as the Suicide Squad—enters a new era with Sean Ryan and Jeremy Roberts’ New Suicide Squad. Which means, of course, that’s it’s also very new reader friendly. If you’ve never read a Suicide Squad comic before, if you’re not even sure what the Suicide Squad is…well, there’s never been a better time to start rooting for the bad guys.
MTV just announced that fan-favorite villain Deathstroke will arrive on comic book shelves this October in the new ongoing comic book series DEATHSTROKE!
The deadliest mercenary in the DC Universe, a.k.a. Slade Wilson (as seen on the CW TV series Arrow) stars in his own new monthly series written and drawn by Tony S. Daniel (SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, DETECTIVE COMICS).
Tonight, Arrow will take its already impressive level of action to stunning new levels in a season finale entitled, “Unthinkable.” The name is a reference to events within the episode, but really, it could just as easily apply to the episode itself. Tonight’s season finale feature’s the long awaited showdown between Oliver Queen’s Arrow and Slade Wilson’s Deathstroke, plus the fallout from the return of Sara Lance and Malcolm Merlyn both of which took place last episode.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and hopefully by now you have your plans in place. We know what we’re doing over here. Brunch at Mom’s favorite restaurant, followed by an afternoon at the pool. Maybe, if the weather stays nice we’ll step out for ice cream before heading home to watch one of Mom’s soon-to-be-favorite movies—Son of Batman.
With each new installment of Arrow ratcheting up the tension and making the standoff between Oliver Queen and Slade Wilson more and more precarious, a week without a new episode can feel like an eternity. Has it really only been thirteen days since Deathstroke kidnapped Thea Queen and dropped a bombshell on Laurel by revealing that Oliver is the Arrow?
Really? Because man, the days have felt long.
