Villains United #1 (of 6)
Gail Simone, Dale Eaglesham
**** (out of five)
Who is Mockingbird?
That’s the first, but certainly not the last question that will drive you wild after reading the first issue of this Infinite Crisis prequel series.
As Lex Luthor continues to recruit member for his Society Of Supervillains — which now includes over 200 of the most deadly members of the DC Universe— the mysterious Mockingbird has assembled a supervillain team, too. They are just six: the Secret Six. And together they have their sights set on thwarting the Society, in the name of … evil?
Digging up some underused and previously unappreciated characters like Dr. Psycho and Catman and mixing them in with the big players such as Luthor, Black Adam and Deathstroke, Villains United is one of the edgiest DCU titles in years and promises to be a wild ride, courtesy of writer Gail Simone and Canadian artist Dale Eaglesham.
