Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo are relaunching Suicide Squad at DC Comics in December, a story Bleeding Cool told you about first after DC screwed up and published their press release before the EX-X-XCLUSIVE interview they had lined up with Sexy Dora the Explorer advocacy website THR.
When we last checked in on how things were going, Taylor, Australia’s Favorite Son, had revealed three new characters that would be joining the squad: Thylacine, Wink, and Jog. In the days since, Taylor has revealed another three members on Twitter.
First up, Puerto Rican character Osita:

Task Force X—nicknamed the Suicide Squad—unites some of the DCU’s unlikeliest villains for its bloodiest series yet! The 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 do-badders realizes that the surviving Revolutionaries will be joining the Squad, all hell breaks loose! Who can Harley Quinn and Deadshot trust when their new teammates are the very people their crew was assigned to kill? The Suicide Squad doesn’t just need to worry about surviving their next mission… now they have to survive each other! The acclaimed Injustice creative team of writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo reunite for the wildest incarnation of the Squad ever seen!
