Summery: The Squad is dropped into a football stadium that is in quarantine over the out break of some sort techno virus (think 28 Days Later meets the Borg). Their objective is to find someone among the spectators who has "The package" that they need to secure. They break up into two teams and search the area but are attacked along the way by all these cannibalistic tech zombies. It turns out "The package" is an infant still within the womb of what appears to be patient zero. Deadshot kills Voltaic (electrical powers) who just fried every last person in the stadium. Apparently unkown to Voltaic having him fry everyone in the stadium was how the virus was intended to be stopped under the pretense that some super powered villain went haywire so of course they're had to be a fall guy. The issue ends with The Squad having to make it to a new location for extraction with the baby. The only problem is they've all got bombs inside of them set to go off in 4 hours unless the bombs are neutralized before then just like in John Carpenter's Escape from New York.
What I thought: I thought it was pretty good the story moves at a good pace and there's no shortage of funny quips and antagonistic banter between the characters. Deadshot is the leader of the group and almost displays a "Rick Flag" kinda quality to him at times as ironic as that is. El Diablo (pyrokinetic) is the conscience of the group. Black Spider didn't really have much to do in this issue but he seems to be some sort of "ninja". King Shark is doing a lot of biting and Harley is Harley and get's to swing her hammer while getting off good one liners. Waller is kinda directing the mission from a control room via transmitter to Deadshot kinda like Misty Knight in Heroes for Hire. Oh and by the way it looks like Waller has also taken up smoking but please try not to have a mental breakdown over it people and no more whining about Harley's costume please! Also I would be negligent if I didn't mention how great the art is (as seen with this Harley panel) even though there's a handful of pages that seem to be done by a different artist.
What Else You Should Know: Although we don't get to see Checkmate we get confirmation that Checkmate is part of the DC relaunch universe so that's cool. Also, in the back of the issue there is some Q & A with Adam Glass (the writer) in which among other things he reveals that there will be familiar faces and organizations showing up in the pages of future Suicide Squad issues. Oh the possibilities huh?
