It’s New Year’s Eve, and Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman wind up spending it working with Deadshot in Trinity 16.

This is an enjoyable tale, an offbeat holiday issue. Deadshot’s daughter has been kidnapped by Kobra’s forces, in order to blackmail the assassin into working with them. The three heroes come to his aid in tracking her down. They may not like Deadshot, but the Kobra cult is no place for a child.

The story is heavier on action than on depth, but still manages to have some very powerful moments. Wonder Woman’s lasso is perfect for bringing out hidden feelings.

The Kobra cult has a nasty new pill, which turns those who take it into sort of cbra/human hybrids. V Ken Marion and Sandu Florea render them in truly monstrous fashion, so there are great visuals in the fight scenes.

Deadshot has long been one of my favourite villains. His self-loathing can make him quite the compelling, if not sympathetic, character, and Williams, who also writes Suicide Squad, is on familiar ground with this guy. While the series usually deals with the relationships of the three heroes, in this case it is Deadshot who gets the focus, and the heroes have very different views on working with him.

Not a brilliant story, but a solid and entertaining one.


Rating: 8.5/10
