How many C-List villains are going to die in this riot?
Nine on the first page! I wonder if any of these guys have established names?
Except it's only Yo Yo, Deadshot, and El Diablo currently suppressing the riot. And Deadshot is the only one using lethal force. Harley had her bomb turned off last issue too early and was taken into solitary. King Shark was placed in a holding cell and Waller wants Yo Yo to let him out because they need more muscle. And Black Spider is in the infirmary because he took one of Mad Dog's bullets last issue. Black Spider seems to be enjoying his time in infirmary a little too much.
Who does this guy think he is? Rorschach?
Deadshot runs out of ammunition and heads for the Guard Tower while El Diablo buys him some time by trying to talk some sense into the inmates. He really should just create a giant firewall to keep them at bay. But then they all seem crazy enough to just plow through the fire, so unless he's willing to kill them (he's not), he's going to end up dead.
Maybe he's just sleeping.
Maybe he's just sleeping as well!
El Diablo creates a giant firewall and the inmates that keep pressing forward instead of returning to their cells are turned to ash. Finally willing to kill, he stops the riot cold. And he makes it his mission to redeem Floyd Lawton. Good luck with that.
Lawton wakes up in medical getting cured of the virus. And then Amanda tells him she hasn't forgotten their deal. The deal was for an hour visit with this kid, whoever it is! If I knew at some point in the past, it's gone from my memory.
She's one part Asian, one part Vampire, and one part Shark.
Harley's not going to recognize The Joker when she gets there!
All in all, it was a good issue. But not great. So it'll remain where it was in the rankings.
