Will Doomsday, Mr Mxyzptlk Or General Zod Join Suicide Squad For Rebirth?

Jim Lee talks about his plans for Suicide Squad in the DC Rebirth Previews out this week.

"I love that they're all lovable losers. These are villains not good enough to escape Amanda Waller, but who have enormous responsibility. I love the idea that they could possibly redeem themselves."

"I'm really looking forward to doing some cool choreography with Katana. I think she's a character that is going to bust out in a big way."

"Unlike a lot of franchise books, the premise of SUICIDE SQUAD allows for characters to be killed. That brings a gravity to every situation that's distinguishable from the rest of the line."

"I've found an interesting visual pairing with Harley and Killer Croc. For whatever reason, it just feels right to me"

"The fun with Harley is you can put her in different outfits. My goal is to have her in a different red-and-black costume for every mission. It's more about the needs of the mission, not a costume that can be easily recognized by the public."

And writer Rob Williams lets out this tease… "One of these characters will be joining the team: Doomsday, Mr. Mxyzptlk or General Zod."
