DC Comics Continues To Stab Its Characters In The Back (Suicide Squad And Wonder Woman SPOILERS)


This is how the previous issue of Suicide Squad ended. With Hack – the newest member and recruit, labelled more as a hero than a villain, stabbed in the back – murdered, by Captain Boomerang.


While previously Deadshot has been fingered as the assassin on Amanda Waller.


That could be a front or a back assault, it's not clear. It is, however, very clean and precise.


Almost too clean. In today's Suicide Squad #14 by Rob Williams and John Romita Jr we get a confirmation of Hack's death.


While Harley Quinn goes up against Deadshot.


And bloody hell, he shoots her in the back again. No news on her fate but Sixth Sense viewers know you don;t walk off a gutshot like that. While concluding this week's Wonder Woman from Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp… we see Wonder Woman taking down a frontal armed assault with hr fast moving wrist gauntlets.


Behind me, Diana? Maybe you should take a look yourself.

Is everybody shooting or stabbing everyone else in the back in DC Comics right now? Also, that armour is looking shoddier and shoddier.

Mind you, as Suicide Squad shows us, sometimes you get to walk away.


Where did she get that gun? I thought Rob Liefeld was at Marvel right now…

Suicide Squad #14 by Rob Williams, John Romita Jr, Danny Miki, Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira, and Wonder Woman #19 by Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp are both published today by DC Comics. Watch your back.
