Team 7 #0 Review

Summary

With the rise of Metahumans a secret organization decides to create a team to combat this imminent threat; Team 7. After the team is assembled they are equip with state of the art weapons and given their first mission.

The Good

Art-Jesus Merino’s art adds such depth to the story you cant help but love it.

Cover- The new Team 7 in its glory; Amanda Waller, Dinah Drake, Cole Cash, Kurt Lance, John Lynch, James Bronson, Alex Fairchild, Slade Wilson, Summer Ramos and Dean Higgins; Radically different from the Team 7 of Widstorm comics.

Exciting-The introduction of each new team member was typical recruitment fare but, man if I wasn’t excited with the turning of every page.

Black Hero- Amanda Waller’s past before the suicide squad is about to be fleshed out and we can dig it!

The Bad

Missed opportunity- While this new team does excite me, I miss the inclusion of Isiah King/Despot. His fall from grace story was highly reminiscent of Anakin Skywalkers transition to Darth Vader, huge loss on the story potential on that one.

The Ugly

A very enjoyable introductory issue with solid art 3/5

    Despot was on Team One not Team 7. And DC has butchered the root of what makes Team 7 great and made Grifter a character with no depth. He was about doing the right thing at all costs. Look up the origin of his mask.
