Batman – The War of Jokes and Riddles | Comics

In a war between The Joker and Riddler, The Dark Knight tries his best to save Gotham City from burning down.

Following Batman's debut as a vigilante on Gotham City, he successfully decreased the increasing crime rate of the city by putting many super criminals behind bars. During the second year of his crime-fighting, one of his archenemy named Red Hood One came back and became known as The Joker.

He went on a senseless killing spree of comedians who was unable to make him laugh and no one could figure out why. Commissioner Gordon tried to apprehend the madman but more civilian died as well as his own men during his attempts.

Stuck inside of GCPD, master strategist and evil genius Riddler had became a means to solve crimes for them. Thinking he has solved the riddle of Joker's massive killings, he decides to escape and he did so by threatening the confronting group of guards of knowing about their loved ones.

He finds Joker and suggests that they team up to beat Batman together as the clown has lost the ability to laugh because of always being halted by him. The Joker shot him in the stomach after dismissing the idea and left him for dead.

Batman came in slightly late to stop this and chased Joker knowing Riddler will survive the gunshot wound. It was from that moment when Edward Nygma started amassing super-villains to fight by his side against the maniacal clown.

Evil that inherited Gotham has parted into two and started ripping each other. Joker tells Carmine Falcone over phone to kill Riddler but when his men failed to do so because of the intervention of Poison Ivy, the clown took out all his men and operation as well before killing his mother Carmen.

A common criminal and former associate of The Joker named Charles Brown is approached by Batman to be a mole in his former boss's gang and set up a meeting. That plan flipped when Riddler figured it out and had him abducted by Clayface to confront about it and he also told this to Batman.

The meeting was a mess and Joker sends him to Batman wired with fake explosives while Riddler poisoned his son. With that tragedy becoming a motivation, Charlie eventually become the Kite-Man and thus, a new villain is born.

By then only Catwoman haven't joined any sides and as Gordon approached the villains for a truce, all they wanted was Batman. Deadshot and Deathstroke were sent to kill the Bat but they got busy trying to kill each other with the causality of 62 civilians in five days.

Batman finally managed to stop them and got Floyd Lawton hospitalized in a fit of rage. He then plans to do something that even the Riddler never saw coming and the endgame of his decision would made him what he is today.

Suicide Squad – Earthlings on Fire | Comics

Following her mad ambitions, Amanda Waller made Kryptonian tyrant General Zod a member of her Task Force X.

Amanda Waller pays a sudden visit to Lex Luthor on a government business and before she can start he offers her a small gift that she refuses. Lex reveals that he knows about her unethical super-secret project involving super-criminals and how she operates it, which surprises Waller.

Meanwhile, the Suicide Squad breaks into LexCorp building with a mission to acquire certain object from the vault. As Enchantress teleports Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and Rick Flag into the building, Digger Harkness loses an arm.

The witch takes out the security system of the building and they are attacked by security personnel. On top floor, Lex was trying to make Waller honest about her true purpose of coming here and he mentions about her recent encounter with The People and their Annihilation Brigade, which shocks her.

At downstairs, the Suicide Squad is attacked by a Bizarro army that wrecks havoc and Luthor now sees what is going on under his nose. He quickly changes into his warsuit and engages Task Force X right on.

Both parties agree to cut the crap and as Waller was about to ask for what she came here for, Luthor again hands her the gift; Kryptonite. With that alien meteorite at her disposal Amanda Waller authorizes her men at Belle Reve to operate and insert a Kryptonite Neural Bomb inside the head of General Zod.

After sending Boomerang for another secret solo mission aside from his team, Waller sends the Suicide Squad to Zimbabwe along with Zod to confront the Annihilation Brigade once again and this time, she only expects victory.

The Kryptonian despot unleashes his mad rage onto them and inside they find hundreds of meta-humans locked up in an attempt to create an International Suicide Squad by The People. General Zod damaged the containment suit of Tunguska.

As he was about to explode, Rick order Enchantress to teleport them all out and grabs Harley at the last moment, saving her. Digger Harkness also carried out Waller's plan of taking out the mole of The People within their ranks as well.

Being hurt in his pride, General Zod decides to remove the Kryptonite Bomb from his brain and eventually does so by using his heat-vision, leaving his skull wide open. He then went on a berserker rampage inside Belle Reve Penitentiary and unleashes an army of Kryptonian wraiths after trapping the prison inside The Black Vault.

As he was tearing the place apart and giving Task Force X one of the toughest times of their lives, Cyborg Superman and The Eradicator arrives out of nowhere to recruit him for their Superman Revenge Squad.

Following the previous events that took place with the members of Task Force X, this plotline has taken things with the Squad a bit up with the involvement of General Zod and tying into "The New World" story from Action Comics series by bringing Cyborg Superman and The Eradicator into the mix.

The Squad is brought back to face him but Rustam and his team Burning World took both Katana and Flag captive. Waller flies to New Orleans where she got shot in an alley by a mysterious shadowy figure.

Harcourt interrogates the entire Squad about that night of Waller's death to judge their motives. Upon looking at Waller's autopsy report, Hack confirms Harley about it was actually and not a decoy, who is killed with a perfect shot.

This leads the point of Harley's suspicion to one person, the deadliest assassin on the planet; Deadshot. In his secret base, Rustam reveals to Katana and Rick Flag about how Waller manipulated them to join Suicide Squad and offers them to join his cause.

Meanwhile at Belle Reve, Harley angrily confronts Floyd Lawton about Waller's death and Croc got involved in the fight too. Djinn breaks into the facility and disables the brain-bombs implanted to Squad members.

Deadshot then shoots Boomerang and walks toward his freedom, betraying the Squad to join Rustam's Burning World. This sudden betrayal of Floyd Lawton may be end of the Squad.

Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad | Comics

Squad members Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, El Diablo, Enchantress, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc and Killer Frost are all sent on a suicide mission without their leader Rick Flag to fight the death cult of Brimstone Brotherhood, led by Apex.

Apparently, they have stolen a Quake Pulsar device from S.T.A.R. Labs to destroy the island they are in as a ritual sacrifice. Deadshot makes the kill-shot on Apex before he does some serious damage but then the building he was standing on starts to tremble. Seeing running from this is pointless, Floyd Lawton willingly starts falling into his imminent death.

However, his life is unexpectedly saved by Superman's timely arrival and entire team of Justice League arrives with him to arrest Task Force X for taking them into custody. Waller then orders her Squad to fight their way out of this situation at any cost or she'll blow up their heads to protect her secret.

A massive fight ensues where Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Superman and Wonder Woman overpowers them, until Killer Frost starts sucking the life-force from Superman and encases all League members in ice, successfully capturing them all.

At Belle Reve, all members of Justice League are kept as prisoners of Amanda Waller and Batman was the one among his friends to break out of his restrains before everyone else. He demands that Waller immediately released his friends and she does so before asking for their help to protect her life from Max's new accomplices.

They are the original Suicide Squad that she formed years ago and now all of them want revenge on her. Aside from that, there is a weapon in Belle Reve which will grant Max absolute power and control over the whole world and he is leading his team of misfits here to retrieve it.

Meanwhile, seeking revenge on director Amanda Waller, Max Lord eventually manages to convince Doctor Polaris, Emerald Empress, Johnny Sorrow, Lobo and Rustam to his goals so that they can chase their own with his help. He is about to unleash darkness upon the world and Lord goes looking for it in an island of South Pacific with his own team of Task Force X.

After killing all the Shamans who opposed them, Max confronts their High Priest to get his tool of revenge against Waller. He got his hands on a source of power he was looking for long but it proved to be too much for him to control and he succumbs to it.

Suicide Squad – Going Sane | Comics

Despite President Obama's constant warnings, Amanda Waller re-assembles her notorious secret project Task Force X, putting a reluctant Colonel Rick Flag in charge of the team this time. Flag led the team of Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Enchantress, Harley Quinn, Katana and Killer Croc to an undersea prison in Russia to acquire a very powerful cosmic item by fighting their meta-humans of Annihilation Brigade.

It turned out to be a giant Orb called "The Black Vault" and they unexpectedly encounters a very notorious Kryptonian despot; General Zod while doing so. Although Zod is more than capable of holding his own against the Man of Steel, Suicide Squad members actually proved to be slightly overwhelming for him when they fought against him as a team.

They even managed to subdue him after having some causality among their rank and taking quite a beating. Enchantress caused him a lot of trouble with her magic but seeing Katana's soultaker sword having some power over him, Colonel Flag used it to wound and capture him. The entire Squad is then directly teleported to Belle Reve Penitentiary by their newest member Hack.

The Black Vault is brought into their compound and in accordance with government's Superman Protocols; Director Waller's scientists begin their experiments on Zod by exposing him to artificial red sunlight. Soon as she revealed her plan to use General Zod as a new Suicide Squad member, Rick lost his cool over this and shot at her.

Thanks to Katana, Waller is saved at the nick of time as she deflected the bullet. It appears that, upon pulling out Zod from the Orb, from every other super-villains to guards on duty, everyone in Belle Reve suddenly has got into some sort of blood-lust and trying to kill each other.

Although Waller was never being shot by Flag, he sees her dead and then she knocks him back to sense by head butting him. Amidst all these chaos, nut job extraordinaire Harley Quinn somehow lost her insanity and became sane again.

This probably happened because; she was already full crazy, so maybe effects of the Orb actually worked reverse on her psychology. Now, she made it her won mission to revert back everyone to normal again and clear this madly influence of The Black Vault. Lights went out suddenly and now, Katana goes full berserk on an aggressive crowd.

June Moone gets out of her cell only to get bitten in her neck by Killer Croc and Hack gets a surprise visit from an apparition of Digger Harkness. As the entire facility goes into a frenzy, now Harley is the only one left to save the world, while Deadshot, El Diablo, Katana and Killer Croc is all after taking her life.

The worst case of them all was yet to happen as one of the crazy scientists broke the red sun generator and put it out of commission. Now, General Zod is about to wake up any moment to go out on a killing spree as power is still down and there's nothing to restrain him.
