Why should the adults have all the fun? While here at DCComics.com, we tend to think of characters like Kal-El, Bruce Wayne, Diana of Themyscira and Hal Jordan as ageless, they’re clearly well over the legal drinking age. And that’s fine. It allows us to believably present Bruce Wayne as a brilliant entrepreneur and philanthropist overseeing a multi-billion dollar company when he’s not fighting crime, or Hal Jordan as a former test pilot who would be a logical candidate for a Green Lantern ring. There’s a level of drama that’s only possible when our characters are adults.
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.
Today, we'll give you the punchline to the joke!
Step aside, guys. In the world of DC Comics, this week belongs to the ladies.
