Shark Week!

Last issue we saw Harley Quinn betraying the team, and it looked like she used OMAC to kill them all.  Amanda Waller had to go to a sub sub basement where she has kept King Shark's father locked up for four years, and she believes the decision to open his cell will get her killed.  Let's see if she knows what she's talking about.

Explain It!:

King Shark finally gets to meet daddy, but the family reunion is a dysfunctional one.  Kamo has no intentions of keeping a son alive, that could take his thrown one day.  Yeah Kamo is a Hawaiian deity, who is apparently beyond powerful, and has been locked away for all this time because Waller deemed him to powerful to control.  But she doesn't want Kamo or King Shark to kill each other.  She wants them to help her stop the gift bag that Harley is bringing back to Belle Rev for the Thinker.  Oh yeah you know I'm talking about the ultra powerful OMAC!

James Gordon Jr. is on his way to the Thinker as a distraction while Amanda Waller gets her sharks under control, but on his way he notices the Squad returning, and something huge falling from their jet.  Guess who?  But Gordon realizes that something is wrong when Harley springs out, and plans on strangling him to death.  But you can't keep a Gordon down.  James stabs Harley in the back, and tosses a exploding collar around her neck, and now has a new slave.  Kinky ass Gordon will probably start caller her mommy next.  God I hate Jimmy Gordon Jr.  But moving on.

During Gordon, and Harley's scuffle, OMAC was brought to the Thinker, and we find out his big master plan.  He was put in charge of Belle Rev by the Crime Syndicate to kill the remaining heroes of the world, but his plans have always been to be in this position to have his mind transported from his weak frail body, to the massively powerful body of OMAC.  Talk about playing the long game.

Amanda Waller gets the sharks to cooperate by promising Kamo his throne back, by killing the thing that holds a spell over him, that keeps him stuck here.  Oh stupid deities always believing in secret spells of binding.  Waller tells him that in order to get back home he has to kill OMAC.  But before they can really get settled into their new arrangement The Thinker, in OMAC's body comes looking for them.  In the end we see that Deadshot is still alive under the mountain that Harley dropped on him, and the rest of the squads, and he's wondering to himself who he's going to kill first when he gets out of there.

Bits and Pieces:

We were given a lot of hype last issue of things to come, and when reading this issue I feel a little let down.  Shark deities, and OMAC, how can you go wrong right?  Well you go wrong when nothing really happens, and you just get hype for what's coming in the next issue.  BAH.  Well here's to whats coming up in next issue, but I don't want to get you to hyped up, I hate letting people down.
