The Outlaws are teamed up with the Suicide Squad to stop Harvest’s hidden colony from blowing up.

Bizarros quantum door brings the team close to the colony, not close enough for the squads liking but still pretty close. Once inside they split up to perform various tasks and its a toss up for which is my favourite pairing. Red Hood and Killer Croc are brilliant together as Croc passes down helpful advice and Jason pretty much brushes it off, it’s nice to see them discussing Roy as well.

Harley and Artemis are a close second favourite as Artemis tries her best to keep her cool with Harley as she is her typical self and winds Artemis up no end. Bizarro meanwhile shows captain boomerang and Deadshot how to shut down the core while he makes himself scarce. With the job done The Outlaws outstay their usefulness for Amanda Waller and she quite literally leaves them out in the cold.

There are still serious doubts about Bizarro and his mental state not helped by the final panel of this issue, has he got an ulterior motive working behind the scenes and how long can he keep going with his mega brains before his body gives out?

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
