The GoodStep aside, Suicide Squad, there's a new awesome team in town. Don't let the cover fool you, though. This isn't a "big guns! big explosions!" kind of book... at least not yet. Practically the entire span of this first issue focused on giving us a better look at the characters in the roster -- and that's absolutely required seeing as there's seven characters and only a handful are considered popular.
But this isn't just blandly going through the motions of telling us who's who. Not only does writer Justin Jordan give us a brief rundown on each character and why they were selected, but we're also treated to an unexpected amount of humor between the group. Almost every other panel there's a fairly witty remark and while not ever character is given the same amount of focus, there's more than enough here to help new readers familiarize themselves with each character's personality. They're setting the bar pretty high by having "The secret history of The New 52 is told here!" on the cover, so let's hope the plot eventually becomes as interesting as the back and forth banter between teammates.
