The Flash: Season Zero #10

After breaking out of an A.R.G.U.S. facility where he was being held against his will and racing into a situation he didn't fully understand, the Flash is forced to work with the Suicide Squad to hunt down a terrorist with plans of an imminent attack.

The introduction of King Shark (thankfully closer to his classic look than the New 52 revamp) and the addition of Cupid continues to round out the group and give the Task Force X a more comic book feel that works better on the printed page (but certainly raises some questions about whether we'll ever see a character like King Shark appear on the television show). It also helps beef up the group in terms of giving them the heavy-hitter they have been missing.

Given its focus you could certainly argue that The Flash: Season Zero #10 is more a Suicide Squad issue than a Flash issue, but our hero still finds moments to shine (such as getting rid of the explosive device in the comic's climax) even if it leaves limited opportunities for his supporting cast to earn much time. Worth a look.
