Amanda Waller’s plan to form her own dark Justice League continues, as it is revealed that she is abducting metahumans from across the multiverse.
Warning: Contains spoilers for Suicide Squad # 5!
In the latest issue of DC Comics’ Suicide squad, Director Amanda Waller is building her own darkness League of Justice, using heroes and villains forcibly taken from across the multiverse. This new issue reveals that Waller has commissioned none other than Bloodsport to travel through various Earths to make reconnaissance, while hijacking any potential assets to serve as counterparts to different members of Earth-0’s Justice League. While Waller already has some under his control, Bloodsport tries on this issue to secure a Black Canary counterpart.
Suicide Squad # 5 comes from Robbie Thompson, Julio Ferreira, Dexter Soy, Eduardo Pansica, Alex Sinclair, and Wes Abbott, and sees Bloodsport traveling to Earth-3 on Waller’s orders. Waller’s plans to build a rival Justice League are only part of her end game, and traditional field leader Rick Flag strongly opposed what she planned. As a result, she quickly had him imprisoned, and Peacemaker took his place as her new field commander for the current Task Force X. Additionally, her plans to build a rival Justice League tie in with the recent Future state event, which represented a future in which Waller succeeds, taking her new Justice Squad and moving to Earth-3 to actually save that world rather than the original Earth that she believes is a lost cause.
Amanda Waller has failed in her first attempt to capture the Flash’s counterpart she had in that future: the young sprinter known as Bolt, who currently attends the Teen Titans Academy. However, she already has Conner Kent, the clone of Clark Kent and Lex Luthor, to serve as her Superman, and some of her current assets in Task Force X also fill different roles, such as William Cobb’s Talon, transformed into a new Batman. in the moment of Future state: suicide squad. However, this new issue features Bloodsport attempting to kidnap Earth-3’s Black Siren, a Black Canary counterpart, as well as a character first seen in the CW’s Arrowverse.
While it looked like Waller was about to get another piece of his Justice League puzzle, Bloodsport soon falls in the crosshairs of Ultraman, Earth-3’s dark version of Superman who is more than just a match for Bloodsport, especially. once the killer tries to take him away. down with a kryptonite bullet, which in this reality only makes him stronger. As a result, it is certainly possible that the arrival of Ultraman creates a deviation in the future depicted seen in Future state. Now he’s determined to hunt down Waller for more kryptonite, and his current Task Force X may not be ready for all the wrath of Ultraman and his equally dark allies in the Crime Syndicate. However, Future state saw the bodies of the Earth-3 team in Waller’s possession, so perhaps the timeline is still on its course with a shocking Suicide Squad victory over the Crime Syndicate somehow awaiting in the near future.
In any case, that Amanda Waller has her own personal Justice Squad under her control to rival the original Justice League doesn’t bode well by any means. Future state: suicide squad saw Waller forcibly relocate herself and her new team to Earth-3 before isolating it from the rest of the multiverse, replacing the Crime Syndicate with her own regime in an apparent attempt to give that reality the heroes it deserves. Which means fans can be watching the birth of not just a Justice League-inspired team, but a new Justice League assembled from the entirety of the multiverse by one of the sharpest minds on Earth- 0. Regardless of how it all turns out, it will be really interesting to see how Waller and the Suicide squad handle the dark League of Justice it is more than likely that it will reach them in future issues.
