Synopsis

Rick Flag and Katana explore the ruins of the Catacomb prison but find nothing but death and empty cells. At Belle Reve, Batman escapes his bondage and goes after Waller.

The Suicide Squad wander through the prison when they discover the Justice League imprisoned and though the two teams have their differences Superman asks Killer Frost about why she hesitated and tells her that she has the potential to be a hero too. They are interrupted by Batman and Waller who release the JL and brief the two teams on the newest threat, Maxwell Lord and his new team.

Across the world Max Lord and his team had infiltrated and slaughtered an island of shamans sworn to protect world-breaking secrets. Waller and Batman analyse the new team of villains using the footage from the Catacombs.

Waller finally reveals their target, herself, and that their hatred stems from a previous experience, when she formed them into the first Suicide Squad.
