The 1st Suicide Squad comic come out in 1959. There has been many comics bearing the same name since then. The newest being the New 52 Suicide Squad being the 4th volume came out in 2011. Ran by Amanda Waller the members of this squad were; Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, The Unknown Soldier, James Gordon Jr., and Cheetah.

DC has announced the new relaunch of Suicide Squad. On July 9th a new team will be taking the name and forming the New Suicide Squad. New Suicide Squad will be written by Sean Ryan and have art by Jeremy Roberts. We will also be seeing new teams members. From the cover of the comic we see Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn, and Deadshot in chains. The new members being Joker's Daughter, Deathstroke, and Black Manta.
The 1st mission for the group not ran by Amanda Waller will be a trip to Vladimir Putin's Russia. According to artist Jeremy Roberts this new series will be a great jump in point for new readers and will make long time fans very happy. I'm sad to see Harley go. She was one of my favorite characters, along with Deadshot, in the story.
Who was your favorite Suicide Squad team members and why?
