Justice League vs Suicide Squad # 3 Spoilers – That Moment They Team-up
We’re a bit behind schedule but we’re still following these spoilers by order of release. Today we’re doing Justice League vs Suicide Squad # 3 spoilers.
The issue was written by Joshua Williamson with art by Jesus Merino. Jason Fabok returns for the next issue.
Variant Covers look awesome too.
So in this issue, Rick Flagg and Katana are sent off to recover the black box for the site known as ‘The Catacombs’ which we saw got dismantled in issue # 1 thanks to Maxwell Lord.
Batman manages to escape his bonds (after referencing stuff from Suicide Squad)…
The way the guards haul Batman was pretty much lifted from the David Ayer movie; and check out the dialogue where Batman says something and then deflects that statement to their boss. That was Deadshot’s thing in the Suicide Squad movie when he was talking to Flagg and Amanda Waller.
Meanwhile, the Suicide Squad recovers from that icy situation they found themselves in last issue and gets the surprise of their lives when they find the Justice League incarcerated.
Gotta hand it to Joshua Williamson for finding a way to make Superman lovable again and he uses future Justice League of America member Killer Frost as the focal point for the feels.
There’s a few pages of exposition and dialogue meant to either revisit the fights from last issue or to move the characterization forward i.e. the Flash and Captain Boomerang and like Superman and Killer Frost. This part ends with the announcement that the Justice League is free thanks to discussion between Batman and Amanda Waller.
Meanwhile the books villains have managed to kill off a group of shamans who hold the secret of whatever Max Lord is after.
We see Lord and Doctor Polaris torture the tribe’s high priest in the most gruesome way ever.
Plus some exposition on what his goals are outside of killing Amanda Waller.
Later Lobo confronts Lord on the matter of getting what they want, something that was promised to them. Lord’s response?
Back in Belle Reeve, Katana and Rick Flagg return from the Catacombs, Waller discusses what’s happening and introduces Lord’s team to both the Squad and the League and orders both teams to protect her (just like in the movie, in essence anyway).
To make a more valid reason to fight these gathered villains, Batman informs them that there’s something in Belle Reeve that could destroy the world or bring it to chaos and that’s Lord’s main objective.
When asked why they should worry about the impending attack on the Suicide Squad’s headquarters, Waller responds in this fashion:
So there you have it, we’ve been actually following the original Suicide Squad for the past three issues or so.
Of course there’s a lot more juicy stuff here in this Justice League vs Suicide Squad # 3 spoilers post but we really hope you do get an issue of this to show actual support to the title and to the publisher.
