Given Amanda Waller’s recent moves across the DC Universe, it was only a matter of time before the Suicide Squad returned — and, sure enough this spring, Task Force X is back… with an unlikely figure at the center of everything.
March sees the launch of Suicide Squad: Dream Team, a new ongoing series written by Nicole Maines, with art from Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira. In case Maines’ presence isn’t enough of a clue, the central figure in the new series is Dreamer, who is recruited by Amanda Waller to head up a new team that includes Harley Quinn, Bizarro, Clock King, Black Alice and Deadeye.
The new series builds out of Dreamer’s appearances in Titans: Beast World Tour - Metropolis and this week’s Action Comics #1060, which bring her into the orbit of Amanda Waller for the first time… and lets Waller see just how potentially useful it could be to have an impressionable, well-meaning precognitive hero under her thumb. (Again, Amanda Waller is not a nice person, which is unfortunate for Dreamer, who is.)
“I’m really excited to be working with Eddy and Eber to bring Dreamer into this pivotal time in the DC Universe,” Maines said in a statement. “This is a very different space from what she’s used to, and where we’re used to seeing her; dealing with Amanda Waller and this new Suicide Squad is going to force her to decide what kind of hero she wants to be, and what she is willing to sacrifice to save the future.”
The new series launches March 12, 2024, with covers from Barrows and Ferreira, but also Riccardo Federici, Sweeney Boo, and Gleb Melnikov. Click through the gallery below for those covers, and also for Barrows’ character illos for some of the primary cast.
