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.

Suicide Squad – Going Sane | Comics

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.

Suicide Squad – The Black Vault | Comics

President Obama angrily confronts Amanda Waller about her Task Force X secret project upon learning of its existence. The President is adamant about shutting it down for good but Waller convinces him of let it run covertly under the leadership of Colonel Rick Flag and she talked to Flag in his holding cells into leading the team again.

In the meantime, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and Harley Quinn were fighting Dogra War; a meta-human army of Mongolia, created by Mark Ljungberg with a gene bomb. As Dogra War tries to take Ljungberg back, Boomerang secures the bomb by cutting his hand, Deadshot put a bullet in his head so that he cannot re-produce another one.

Harley then re-activates the bomb to revert the army to powerless humans again in a desperate attempt to even the odds, which actually worked. Rick Flag joins them in the battlefield to lead them save the world for their oncoming missions.

Suicide Squad – The Black Vault | Comics

In Belle Reve Penitentiary, Waller re-assembles Suicide Squad by bringing Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, June Moone AKA Enchantress and Killer Croc, with Katana and Rick Flag for a new mission.

They are to steal or destroy an immensely powerful "Cosmic Item" from an undersea prison in Russia but in mid-air Croc got sick all of a sudden and their pod crash lands into ice, while the timely emergence of Enchantress saved them all.

As Amanda Waller and her new accomplice NSA agent Emilia Harcourt watches over, the team breaks into the prison and fell under heavy fire from the enemy. As they were kicking ass and hacking limbs, Harley Quinn tries to bond with Katana to no avail.

The Squad ends up killing all the guards and discovers a girl named Hack who knows about "The Black Vault" they are looking for and she is also a huge fan of Harley Quinn. The Squad re-materialized to another location to find an Orb that has a link to Phantom Zone and Croc gets sick again.

Before Rick could warn any of his teammates, one of them is disintegrated by Kryptonian zealot; General Zod. Now, since this angry Kryptonian was held here against his wishes, he's definitely angry and the fragile humans are all on his way!

Mad Max – Fury Road Inspired Artists Deluxe Edition (Hardcover)

Released in four installment issues that serve as a prequel to the 2015 post-apocalyptic film Mad Max – Fury Road, a limited series starts publishing in 2015 from Vertigo of the same name. Written by the creator of the same franchise George Miller, this series also features the creative input of Nico Lathouris and Mark Sexton. The first two issues were focused on Imperator Furiosa, Nux and Immortan Joe, focusing on their lives. The latter two issues are totally on the main protagonist Max Rockatansky AKA Mad Max. The story of this series was somewhat not essential yet enjoyable to the general and hardcore fans of the franchise. The issue on Furiosa was heavily criticized for the portrayal of violence but compared to that, the other issues performed pretty well.
