Issue #3 picks up the action straight where issue #2 left off with General Zod being released from the Phantom Zone!

To say Zod is a tad miffed would be an understatement and with Captain Boomerang disintegrated in the last issue there is no-one left that outranks the general and he intends to make our squad pay for his imprisonment! Each member of the team has a blast of taking on Zod with varying degrees of success ranging from no success to absolute failure, even The Enchantress is felled before she was allowed to finish her monolog and when it comes to Harley Quinns turn well the least said about that the better. Just as all seems lost in steps Katana and her soultaker who not only holds off Zod’s attack but also cuts him with a slash across his chest! As if a p*ssed off Kryptonian wasn’t enough a Russian hit squad turns up to the party and then as the squad seemingly scrape together an escape from nowhere they end up running full pelt into yet another disaster. Like last issues Captain Boomerang back story this issue is the turn for Katana who unlike Boomerangs humorous account hers is just that little bit darker but still a really good read as we find out about how the soultaker chose her to wield it and a little bit more about the whole mythology surrounding it

I’m really liking the action in this series of the squad as the situation just goes from bad to worse every issue! I am loving the second half origin tales and hope that they continue with the whole squad recounting their tales

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
