Suicide Squad #9

Rick Flag has raided various Task Force X facilities putting together his own team while Amanda Waller has retreated to a secluded island base and plans to use her remaining troops for a space mission. It seems Flag and Waller are in an arms race to put together the best Task Force X team, and Waller has an eye on a prisoner in Oa.

The reveal of the target of Waller's interest turns out to be a complete unknown, leaving the slow build-up without any immediate payoff. We do get plenty of dysfunctional team antics, some fun third-wall breakage by Ambush Bug, and an appearance by Sojourner Mullein, but it will be at least another month before we learn the reasoning behind Waller's big gamble. Waller's prize is creepy (in a Doctor Who kinda way), but what exactly is he?
