Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc–they’re all villains, but as members of the Suicide Squad they’re useful villains, taking on America’s dirtiest and most dangerous covert missions for the good of the country–usually against their will. (Remotely triggered brain bombs do wonders for motivation!)
But now something has changed. A mysterious organization called the People has enlisted Task Force X leader Amanda Waller into a conspiracy to create dozens of new Suicide Squads around the world. Its goal: to eliminate the threat posed by all metahumans–heroes and villains alike.
When the original Squad’s members discover the nature of the People’s plan, will they seize this once-in-a-lifetime chance to take down the world’s superheroes? Or will these incorrigible criminals prove to be the unlikeliest of saviors?
Writer Rob Williams (Trinity, Kingsmen: The Red Diamond) and acclaimed artists Gus Vazquez (The Flash), Agustin Padilla (Smallville) and Giuseppe Cafaro (Justice League vs. Suicide Squad) assemble the best of the worst in Suicide Squad Vol. 5: Kill Your Darlings, collecting issues #21-25 of the outrageous ongoing series.
