Tom Taylor Reveals Another New Character for Suicide Squad Relaunch

Following Bleeding Cool’s scoop (thanks to DC accidentally publishing their press release the night before they were set to run an EX-X-XCSLUSIVE interview with THR) of Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s Suicide Squad relaunch, Australia’s Favorite Son has revealed another of new characters who will be on the team, joining the previously-announced Thylacine and Wink.

Taylor teased…

And after DC managed to get through the night without accidentally spoiling it on their blog, Taylor teased again:

And then finally, we meet: Jog!

More to come, we’re sure.

This new version of Task Force X is already full of changes, with new villains—any of whom could die on a mission or be dispatched by an all-new and mysterious leader who has replaced Amanda Waller. This

Squad’s new mission is to neutralize a new group of international super-terrorists known as the Revolutionaries—and not everyone on either side will make it out alive! But when the U.S. government’s most deniable team of antiheroes realizes that the surviving Revolutionaries will be joining the Squad, that’s when the fireworks really begin!

When DC’s most desperate villains are combined with new inmates of Belle Reve that Task Force X has been trying to kill, who can Harley Quinn and Deadshot trust? These misfits not only have to worry about surviving their next mission, but each other as well.

Suicide Squad #1 hits stores on December 18th.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
