Greg Rucka, along with Nunzio DeFilippis & Christina Weir finish up the return of The Suicide Squad, with Cliff Richards handling the art.
It shows the meta-human Nay, being coerced by the captain of the Myanmar military into going with him. It fast forwards, and shows that Nay is now the power source that's been showing up on Checkmates charts, as he is captive to the Myanmar military, who has just struck a deal with China to syphon Nay's powers to fuel their own needs.
The Suicide Squad, meanwhile is surrounded by armed guards. Punch is dead, and Jewlee (Punch's wife) is losing her mind, or what's left. Calculator admits that the Society tipped off the Myanmar Government about the Squad's operation. Flag and B. Tiger come to the rescue. Jewlee won't let go of Punch, Javelin grabs her for a getaway, and is run over by a jeep for his causes.
Jewlee's already looking for a new bo. Icicle figures out that it was Tattooed Man who "ratted" the squad out to the Society. Mirror Master encases him in a mirror shell. Jewlee "accidentally" tips him over, and Tattooed Man is now a jigsaw puzzle.
The Squad rescues Nay, and leave him in Mirror Master's limbo for the time being. Colonel Flag orders everyone to believe the coverup he is explaining to the rest of the squad; that they lost Nay, but escaped, and that there is no Suicide Squad.
Mr. Terrific senses a mole in Checkmate's operations. The frames lead us to believe that he suspects King Faraday.
Nay is now in America, and is the proof against China that Checkmate needed.
B.Tiger, and Colonel Flag are having drinks at a bar, and Ms. Amanda Waller joins them. And she confirms that there will be a next time for the Suicide Squad.
Some new cogs are turning in this series. A possible traitor in Checkmate. The Suicide Squad is officially unofficially back. Good two issue story, and many more good things to come. I started thinking about the sales figures on this series. I doubt their spectacular, but I hope this book stays around for at least another year or two. As long as possible, actually, but I'm trying to be realistic.
