Here’s an exclusive look at the new Suicide Squad’s new recruits

Who are the Revolutionaries?

A new era for DC Comics’ longest running supervillain team is about to begin. This December, the Suicide Squad gets a reboot, with a new #1 issue and a bunch of new characters.

Readers will meet the Revolutionaries, a group of “international super-terrorists” that the Squad is assigned to neutralize. The fight results in losses on both sides, prompting the Squad’s new, mysterious commander to fill the empty spots on the team with surviving members of the newly captured Revolutionaries. It’ll be up to Harley Quinn and Deadshot to figure out who they can trust.

DC recently released the full Revolutionary character lineup, from the minds of Injustice team Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo. Polygon has an exclusive look at the superpowers of the new recruits, which you can read below.

Then, check out six unlettered pages from Suicide Squad #1, in which the Revolutionaries assault three military submarines in an ... explosive fashion.
