This ofcourse happened in DC Comic’s first event book under the DC Rebirth banner, Justice League vs Suicide Squad, issue 6 with art by Howard Porter and script by Joshua Williamson. Check out the Justice League vs Suicide Squad # 6 spoilers in this site as well.
By the end of the fight between Max Lord/ Eclipso and the combined force of the Justice League and the Suicide Squad, Killer Frost was confronted with a decision. To kill Max Lord or spare his life.
She chose to spare Lord’s life partly to defy Amanda Waller’s orders. She didn’t get her head blown off which was really weird. Anyway as both teams were recuperating from the injuries they sustained Batman and Waller discuss some issues including the continued operation of the Suicide Squad.
Not only did Batman approve of the Suicide Squad, he’s also liberated one of the members to be transferred over to Batman’s Justice League of America team. And that’s how Killer Frost joins the ranks of the good guys in the DC Rebirth-verse.
As for Lobo, it was fairly simple for Batman to get him to join his squad.
That look on Lobo’s face when Batman tells him he’s cashing in on his favor the moment Lobo tells him that he owes him one. Just priceless.
So there we go. There’s another post I’m wanting to do about JL vs SS # 6 but I’ll save for Sunday. For now, go and pick up this issue and pre-order JLA # 1 as well.
