Synopsis

Inside the Catacombs, a top-secret prison, a man walks in and convinces the guards that they prefer to shoot one another than him. He goes on to release all of the prisoners, citing second chances, as the guards flood in several practised hands make for an easy escape into the Californian desert.

In Belle Reve, Rick Flag storms into the control room demanding to know why Waller had sent his team on a mission without him. They were sent to the island of Badhnisia to stop Apex the leader of the Brimstone Brotherhood, the mission goes well except for a few earthquakes but Deadshot manages to assassinate the leader but an earthquake puts him at risk as he falls from a building top.

Unbeknown to the Suicide Squad, the Justice League were watching from the skies as Batman briefs the team on who the Suicide Squad are and what they do. Amidst the discussion Cyborg discovers them on his scans and they head down.

In the nick of time Superman saves Deadshot but as the Justice League go to arrest the Task Force Waller gives her commands and the two teams erupt into combat.

Up in the Swiss alps, the mysterious man from the Catacombs briefs his new team on his plans to kill Waller and reveals himself to be Maxwell Lord.
