DC Comics Universe & Suicide Squad #7 Spoilers & Review: What Is Ted Kord AKA Blue Beetle’s Plan For Deadshot & Task Force X? Plus Who Is Liveshot?

DC Comics Universe and Suicide Squad #7 Spoilers and Review follows.

What Is Ted Kord AKA Blue Beetle’s Plan…

…For Deadshot and Task Force X…

Plus Who Is Liveshot?

The book opens with Ted Kord, CEO of Kord Industries, and seemingly no longer the hero Blue Beetle, with…

…an axe to grind INTO the Suicide Squad.

The more I think about it, the more I think Ted Kord is really classic Suicide Squad member Nemesis aka Tom Tresser. What say you?

We then move to Deadshot aka Floyd Lawton who has been pardoned and visits his family; his daughter Zoe is pleased to see him.

His ex-wife Michelle seems dubious.

Zoe shows her dad she wants to be like him, but not kill people, and adopts the name Liveshot.

At the same time, we see Ted Kord’s plan come to fruition with Deadshot and the Suicide Squad being persona non grata and America’s most wanted; Floyd explains to his ex that ‘s not lying, he was pardoned, but clearly they’ll never let him walk away.

The FBI are at the door so Deadshot surrenders due to his family.

The police brutalize him anyway…

…spurring Liveshot to kneecap a cop as…

…Deadshot tries no lethal shots to save his daughter from the FBI…

…but Wink gets to her first as…

…rest of Suicide Squad came back from him…

…promising to go after Ted Kord!

Next up is Suicide Squad #8 out on August 25, 2020.

The Pulse:

Writer Tom Taylor can do no wrong. Another well crafted, multi-layered, emotional, action-packed and thoroughly entertaining yarning well rendered by the full the art team. Awesome. 9 out of 10
