This time, however, what she wants belongs to one of Superman’s deadliest antagonists—and getting it is more important than ever.With a sprawling international conspiracy threatening to destroy everything she has built, the Wall must go toe-to-toe with none other than Lex Luthor to secure the key to controlling the living weapon of mass destruction known as General Zod.

Or will it actually doom the entire planet to devastation and alien enslavement? The answer may surprise you!Superstar artist Tony S.

Suicide Squad Vol. 4 Review

    Waller decides to force General Zod to join Task Force X. What could possibly go wrong? Waller seems to make more mistakes than all the convicted criminals in Suicide Squad combined. This leads into Suicide Squad taking on The People in the next volume. The capable Tony Daniel handles the art with a couple of fill in artists. Received an advanced copy from DC and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    ARC REVIEW Story: Amanda Waller has really bit off more than she could chew when she acquires exactly what she wants, lucky for her Lex Luthor knows a lot more than she thinks he does. Waller thinks she can control Zod but he proves no one controls Zod. She just needs one mission to go right the one mission to finally take out The People and their own Suicide Squad, The Annihilation Brigade, and to lay a trap for the trader in her own ranks. Shortly after Waller thinks everything has gone well Z ARC REVIEW Story: Amanda Waller has really bit off more than she could chew when she acquires exactly what she wants, lucky for her Lex Luthor knows a lot more than she thinks he does. Waller thinks she can control Zod but he proves no one controls Zod. She just needs one mission to go right the one mission to finally take out The People and their own Suicide Squad, The Annihilation Brigade, and to lay a trap for the trader in her own ranks. Shortly after Waller thinks everything has gone well Zod breaks loose and starts reeking havoc in Belle Reve. The Suicide Squad barely contained him the first time and without the help of Hack they alone can not take him out. Art: The art was visually pleasing. I love the covers, especially Otto Schmidt's cover for Managing People, and there were quite a few individual panels I quite liked. "Alone" was probably the one I liked the least it didn't seem like it stayed consistent with the others it almost seemed like more time was spent on Zod, Eradicator, and Cyborg Superman then the rest of the characters.Review: Overall, it was a good story. I'll admit I did get teary eyed there. "Alone" while probably my least favorite art-wise was my favorite story-wise. In "Managing People" you discover that Waller knows what Boomarang did and I'm am just waiting for the day Harley discovers it and tears him a new one. I love the unlikely romance between June and Waylon (still a better romance than Twilight as my son would say). And I'm still crossing my fingers that what happened isn't a permanent

    Well, this wasn't as good as the third Rebirthed SS book, but it's still a major improvement on the first two. The ongoing stories combine, with Waller trying to flirt with Lex in order to get something he knew she wanted before she herself did, of course - all in order to control the subject of Book #1. Said subject changes far too much far too quickly, going from Harley-styled Looney Tunes to fully erudite and human in just pages, but that's about the only major problem with the book (I'm igno Well, this wasn't as good as the third Rebirthed SS book, but it's still a major improvement on the first two.

Some bits can make you snicker, all the characters get an equal play, Waller proves to be too smart for her own good, as usual, and we're set up nicely for a jolly outing with the Squad next time. That should be fun - while this can try a little too hard at times, it's almost there already. Three and a half stars. Shit title, though.

    Suicide Squad vs Robot Supermen. Every time I finish a new volume of this series, I tell myself I want to read the characters' solo stories. So far, I have read a lot of Harley Quinn, and none of the others. I need to rectify this, because these players really are fascinating. This installation had quite a few, "Ooh, didn't see that coming" moments, especially involved Kneel Before Me Puny Humans guy. I always worry with this comic that I'm going to get to a volume where there's too much action, Suicide Squad vs Robot Supermen.

I always worry with this comic that I'm going to get to a volume where there's too much action, too much history, and I'm going to get lost. It hasn't happened yet, and I credit that to excellent writing keeping my attention. The art work is nothing to shake a boomerang at, either. How long until the next volume comes out? Maybe this time I'll read up on at least one other character. Enchantress? Katana? Anyone other than Harley Quinn for a change?

    Quite an epic volume in the series. With a kryptonite bomb implanted in his brain Zod is awakened and forced to join the Suicide League. He's a good fighter to have on your side but he's no team member and he becomes a problem for Waller. The team with Zod is sent after The People and meet up with their Russian counterparts. One team member dies and leadership changes hands. I really enjoyed the Russian meta-humans; they were a lot of fun. Great story with lots of action and an ending that leave Quite an epic volume in the series. With a kryptonite bomb implanted in his brain Zod is awakened and forced to join the Suicide League.
