    Default Suicide Squad #11 preview/discussion

    https://comicbookdispatch.com/suicide-squad-11-preview/

    I hate to say it but Ambush Bug brings up a great point...what does Waller see in Earth-3? I mean by DC obviously itís a crossover sales purpose as people might buy Suicide Squad vs Crime Syndicate but there is a whole Omniverse out there.

    So why if multiple earths exist, space between multiverse, multiverses between multiverses, and a dark multiverse would she want Earth-3?

    I'm still holding out hope that Waller's been replaced by her Earth-3 doppelganger.

    But Waller has always operated in shades of gray. I think grayís opposite is just more gray.

    When was the last time Waller wasn't depicted as a sociopath?

    Peacemaker vs. Bloodsport. Now in comic form!

    She didn't kidnap, she placed a bomb in their brain. Or at least, that's what Bloodsport thinks.

    ...still dumb as hell.

    And though I'm not a fan of synergy all the time, kinda underwhelming that Bloodsport hasn't been revamped to match his movie counterpart.

    I really enjoyed this issue. Ambush Bug has always been one of my favorite characters so even if I’m not 100% behind some of the book’s direction, I’m still having a good time reading.

    Haha I started to hear Bloodsport’s dialogue in my head as Idris Elba’s voice right when Bug made his comment !

    Ambush Bug arguing with the editor and doing a Stan Lee cameo awesome. Wasn’t expecting a Suicide Squad vs Thunderbolts battle but it looks like we’re getting that in the next issue. I wonder who Waller wants from the Lightning Strike roster?

    Pretty sure that was the Earth 8 Warmachine what with the shoulder cannons. I liked how they combined the Earth 8 and Marvel continuity. The American Crusader seemingly died and now “The Flacon” has taken up the mantle.

    Elektra. The female equilvelant of an Oedipus complex is an Elektra complex. Funny enough, the name has already been used for a pastiche... in the Tick of all things.

    I think the Machinehead full of weapons over his shoulders was a hint on that.

    Okay, well they have look far from him X)

    So if i resume we have :
    Blood Pouch = Deadpool
    Dead Red = Red Hulk
    Oedipus = Elektra
    Thing-Man = Man-Thing
    Thrill Kill = Punisher or Bullseye ?

    That would be amazing, they switch but both realise they're exactly the same. Like a weird nexus of perfect balance.

    Seriously, though, as Frontier says - Waller was never a bad person in the original run. She was very complex, politically savvy and made choices that were open to interpretation. It's much easier to writer her more as a defined hero/villain (depending on what the writer needs).
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC UniverseÖ
