Arrow 2.5 #6

Taking place before the events of Arrow's Third Season Arrow 2.5 has dealt predominantly with the fallout of Season Two and a new villain taking on the role of Brother Blood. Arrow 2.5 #6 shifts away from that storyline to focus on the ongoing back-up story involving a madman in Kahndaq who has come to the attention of Amanda Waller and A.R.G.U.S.

With Lyla pregnant Diggle agrees to lead the Suicide Squad into Kahndaq, rescue a group of schoolgirl hostages, and bring Khem-Adam to justice. Diggle's team includes Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and former Kahndaq terrorist leader Ravan. However they aren't the only ones seeking an audience with a terrorist who believed he has been resurrected and empowered by old gods to save his nation. Nyssa and Sara want a word as well.

The shared Arrow/The Flash hasn't made a decision about where it comes down on magic. Arrow 2.5 #6 teases us with the possibility of Black Adam without making any firm decisions about how powerful the madman has become or what Ra's al Ghul wants from him. For fans.
