Exclusive Cover Reveal: NEW SUICIDE SQUAD #1 variant by Ivan Reis and Eber Ferreira

Take a look at the new Squad.

We've been seeing quite a few exclusive cover reveals courtesy of DC Comics. We've already seen the cover to THE NEW 52: FUTURES END #11, Cliff Chiang's TEEN TITANS #1 variant, and some Batman 75th Anniversary variants. We're not finished with the reveals just yet.

On July 9, the NEW Suicide Squad debuts with a new series written by Sean Ryan with art by Jeremy Roberts. Check out this first look at the variant by Ivan Reis and Eber Ferreira.

3899654-ss_01_coverv2_rgbadwm.jpg.jpg

The world has changed for Task Force X, a.k.a. the Suicide Squad. Director Amanda Waller no longer has the autonomy she once had. New members disrupt the team dynamic. And the team takes on an international scope. New members Joker’s Daughter, Deathstroke and Black Manta join Harley Quinn and Deadshot for a mission in the most dangerous and unpredictable place in the world: Vladimir Putin’s Russia!

Item Code: MAY140162 In Shops: 7/9/2014 SRP: $2.99

@warlock360 I think I found that funnier than what it actually is.

Deadshot - cool

Jokers Daughter - even though i despise her, i could see the tension between her and Harley, even though i once again would have much preferred she never existed.

Now, whats the deal with unpredictable and most dangerous place - Russia? Might work, might be good. I just really hope that they dont put some political message because of the recent events. In the end i am so sick of russia being "dangerous'".

Joker's Daughter and Harley Quinn?.....no thanks

Oh... so one of these guys is gonna die? Well....

Deathstroke = SAFE! He can't die due to the massive push he's getting at the moment.

Harley Quinn = SAFE! She has her own book!

Black Manta = SAFE! A major Aquaman Villain who DC has been pushing recently. Also I'm pretty sure he can handle what the Squad would be given since he just took on the Crime Syndicate.

Deadshot = ....hmm. I don't want Floyd to die. He's awesome and I love him. However he's not really in anything major at the moment outside of Comics. Sure he appears in Arrow but not as much as Deathstroke has. He's also a mainstay of the Squad which means it could be an attempt to shock the readers... he's also died before in the series and that could get annoying!

Joker's Daughter = Hmm. Her Villains Month was despised by everyone on the Planet. She's not appearing in anything outside of comics (unless she happens to be this Arkham Knight I've been hearing about). However DC seem to be attempting to give her, her own series. However we all hate her so... do us a favor DC! Kill her off! Although she's kinda hot so...

I knew the Joker's Daughter hate would be here. I don't hate the character, though her being here with Harley is redundant. Anyway, Can't wait for this series!

Oh god, now Waller has Manta and Deathstroke on a leash!? Is there no depth that monster of a woman won't sink to?

Although I'm interested to see how Harley and Duella interact.

I'm intrigued with Deathstroke and Deadshot on the same team. Two of my favorite villains.

Excited about the lighter feel of these adverts so far. Russia should offer some amusing moments for this team. Black Manta is a step in the right direction, though I prefer Deathstroke as a loner merc.

I feel like Harley's run her course in this book by now too. She has her own title, so give someone else a chance. Bring back Cheetah, or use Cheshire from Red Hood and the Outlaws, there was even a possible reference to Nightshade during Kot's run who could be utilized. I'd love to see Count Vertigo brought in as well since I think he was arrested in the pages of Green Arrow.

Harley doesn't feel natural on the Squad anymore. She comes across more as a crutch to push sales based on name-recognition than anything else.

Agreed. Hopefully he gets his own live action movie.

Since the New 52, I've become a huge Black Manta fan, but I doubt that will be enough to draw me into this title. I don't mind Harley, but I have no interest in any of the others at all, so 2 out of 5 is not very good odds haha

Joker's daughter should just ditch Mistah J's face

and join the Red Lanterns in space

-The End-

(LOL. But seriously, they should do something -ANYTHING- to boost her likeability. Maybe make her a bit Deadpool-ish and break the 4th wall? Or get her in a taboo relationship with Ha-...ha ha ha ha ha)

can anyone tell me what role Deathstroke played in Forever Evil, if any? I haven't read the series but I read the Teen Titans tie in issue that he appears in and that had nothing to do with the main story. I've flipped through some of the issues of the main series and he looked as if he was with Luthor's villain team but didn't do anything significant. If I'm wrong, update me and let me know.

putting Black Manta and Deathstroke on the same team should make for some impressive tactical banter. That's like teaming Black Panther and Captain America to me.

@figgs216: Haven't they always? He's in just about every Animated film, (in one he was President and the other saw him as a Pirate, even,) he was in both Young Justice and the main antagonist of Teen Titans, main antagonist of Arrow, and has been in many of DCs games like Injustice. If anything, people should be surprised when Slade isn't getting pushed.

His work really shines when paired with Joe Prado and Rod Reis.

@teerack: No. She was in that Ravager book Beast Boy got his start in in the New 52. Though I really hope they use her more. They have seen to forgotten many of the Titans. It's sad.

I was talking about what happened in the Ravagers. At the end of the series all of the team members were captured by Deathstroke expect Beast Boy, and as payment they gave him Tara who was unconscious in a stasis pod. Deathstroke keeps showing up after that, and there has been no mention as to what's going on with her.
