Justice League vs Suicide Squad 1 – You Don’t Need a Fancy Review Title

GameStop, Inc.

Title: Justice League vs Suicide Squad #1

Writer: Joshua Williamson

Artist: Jason Fabok

Colorist: Alex Sinclair

Letterer: Rob Leigh

Publisher: DC Comics

Release Date: December 21, 2016

The latest major event from DC Comics to entice readers is Justice League vs Suicide Squad. A series that will crossover three comics over 11 issues.

Most fans have wanted to see various super teams duke it out to settle arguments of which group will reign supreme. However, most of these crossovers end up being based on a misunderstanding blended in with preconceived notions by various members because of personality clashes. These groups either resolve their issues by the end of the series or must join forces to fight a greater evil that has been manipulating the situation from behind the scenes.

Sadly, after just the first issue, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad is already shaping up to be cliche as Amanda Waller dispenses the Suicide Squad to save the tiny island nation of Badhnisia from a death cult. In doing so, the Justice League tracks these criminals down in hopes of imprisoning them.

As the two teams do battle over what is considered to be, “justice” other forces are at work in freeing some of the most dangerous beings from a maximum security prison in Death Valley, making the Suicide Squad look like a daredevil club.

Williamson’s dialogue and Fabok’s art are impeccable, the problem is the story. The problem is, we have read stories like this numerous times. So far, it is following the same beats as JLA/Avengers from 2003, only the protagonist isn’t from the future.

There is still a lot of time left to get this story going and it could change directions quite drastically, but from this opening in its set up, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad feels more of the same instead of something new and exciting.

Justice League vs Suicide Squad

Verdict

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad rehashes an old story idea that has the potential to be great, if you can look beyond the standard set up.
