into the 
Cool Factor


The Suicide Squad is a covert black-ops government strike team under Task Force X. The team is partially made up of imprisoned super-villains who agree to serve as expendable agents on life-threatening top-secret missions for the United States Government. In return, after sufficient service, the prisoners are granted full pardons for their crimes.
The Government does not officially acknowledge the existence of the Suicide Squad, and claims their missions as random supervillain attacks. In addition, there are other non-prisoner members such as Nemesis and Nightshade who participate in the team as part of individual arrangements. The Suicide Squad operate out of Belle Reve prison in Louisiana.
To prevent members escaping in the field, the prisoners are shackled with explosive bracelets programmed to detonate a certain distance from the field leader, who also wears a remote control that can detonate or disengage the bracelets as desired. Typically the field leader will be either Rick Flag or Bronze Tiger.

Thankx to Dan from

for the portal into a great interpretation 
of the Suicide Squad.
The deep rich texture and the 
realistically stylized characters 
pulls us into the high risk danger that is Task ForceX

Black Manta and the Suicide Squad?

I see Waller manipulated his better judgment. We'll see what happens.

I read over at IADW that Sinestro is about to get a title shot.
Thaal is my dude so of course I'll have a first print #1.
However I got to say it (overstated or not) 

Where the hell is Black Manta #1

Don't think the Scourge of the Seven Seas deserves his own book?  
It's about 2 or 3 different versions of him floating around in DC land as it is right? 
Well so what?.  
Since the new 52 and even before 52, I've seen obscure 2nd rate characters get books in every corner of the DCU. Most of em were trash or didn't yield any return. So as Boss as Black Manta is; an ongoing is over due, and a mini series at this point is damn essential. Don't believe what I say? Let's check this guys credentials.

1. Founding member of the Legion of Doom

2. Has  Hella staying power, 47 yr Legacy character

3. He's the First and only legitimate African American Super Villain

4. Has appeared in just about every DC, Warner Bros animated TV series to date

Flash Point

and in a couple of video games, with a YJ one coming up

5. Has an A list character as his arch enemy

6. Has so many action figures I lost count. From preschool to adult collector Manta is everywhere

7. His son Kaldur'ahm is his blood enemies chosen champion

8. No good Hero is official without a  Heromobile. 
Black Manta has so many he rent  out the ones he don't want

9. Has an arsenal of weapons with potential to rival Batman's

10. Black Manta even has his own damn theme music.

2nd Christmas

the Perfect Storm

I found this picture of Storm while looking for a T'Challa and Storm X-mas picture for the banner, 
and hit this chocolate wall.  (stunned I say)

Storm being all that;  in comics and cos play, 
I wanted to see which one of these women would make your top 5 list.

Lets set the criteria shall we?  It's only 2 rules
1.The outfit must look realistic
Regular holloween costumes are cute but no dice. I want to believe.

2. The cosplayer has to own Storms persona
Can't just be pretty girls.....sorry.  To be Storm you have to 
take command of the pose.
Fierce, sensuous or elemental fury; the look has to say goddess.

They can mix and match the looks or go head to toe in a matched set.

Who's your favorite 5

Fellas ....
It's really no need to pick just one, this is a win, win situation.
Don't say I never gave you nothing.
