Beyond_Batman reviewed Suicide Squad #7 Sep 9, 2021

I like this book overall. But I just get so tired of them constantly having waller blow someone up 5 times per comic. I mean they are in arm's length of her all the time. Anyone of them could knock her fat ass out before she could react. Superboy(Match) could just eye laser her. I understand it's a comic and you have to take things with a grain of salt,but over reminding us readers 5 times per iss more

It was entertaining enough for the mess of a story it is. After 4 issues of fighting doc ock saves the day and its like this series had zero importance. For Spencer's run or Spider-Man in general. How do 40 supervillains show up in NYC and not one of the 500 heroes in the area not show up to help? I think Spider-Man would have been justified texting one his super friends. And I still am waiting fo more

Not bad, not great. I'm sick to death of the drama with Thor's hammer. He's worthy, he's not worthy. Everyone can pick it up. Just destroy Mjolnir and be done with it or make it so only he can use it again. Cates said "don't worry, the hammer story is different and interesting", but it's not.

This is turning into a terrible comic and and feels more like a terribly written X book than a star wars book. The villains are just not doing it for me. The drengir are extremely dumb and boring. The Nihil are also dumb. When Avar Kriss was in the drengir control and they were like "no, she connects us all", that was very Jean Grey and not very jedi or force like.

I only picked this book up because of Tom Taylor, and his part of the book was the only good one. And even his part was kind of lack luster. With deadpool telling the reader that this book isn't for kids, which was the only funny part to me, the rest of Taylor's arch was kind of boring. The other arch's I did not care about. This book is meant to be gory, violent and action packed. It did not show more

It's all over the place. There isn't nearly enough Chameleon nor Spider-Man in this for my liking. I really don't know why this was called the Chameleon Conspiracy, because it sure didn't feel like that.

This one has two storylines that feel very disconnected. And the part that Chameleon was the man behind T&M wasn't touched upon at all. So why even hint about that?

I've like more

Marvel's recent solicitations for this series have been so misleading. Remember when ASM #55 said that it would make us see Spider-Man differently? Yeah... that never happened (at least for me). I suggest avoiding the solicitation details for Sinister War so you don't end up disappointing yourself. Just know that it's Spider-Man vs Doc Ock's Sinister Six vs Vulture's Savage Six ft. Kindred, Mysterio, and Mephisto (according to preview art). 👍

I just can't get into this whole cyberpunk/magistrate storyline. I'm not really into the story and DC has already let us know what is going to happen with Future State.

I hope you'll behappy when DC changes every character in the comics so they can make movies for people who don't read or give 2 shits about comics. And then comic fans stop buying comics from the big 2 companies. Comic sales say it all. Indie titles are already selling at record numbers and the big 2 are declining. I'm not alone. That is all. You can respond but I'm not going argue because u disagree with my view. Go fight an SJW battle on someone else's post. Begone troll

Toonstrack - Jan 16, 2021

Ok, I'm not worried, this is nothing new with DC. Imagine an Alan Scott fan saying this same stuff back in '59 when Hal debuted. Or a Jay Garrick fan in 56. DC is still here. Hopefully they will continue to be, and to evolve the stories and characters as well. But we can just disagree. Have a good one.
