Our story starts with Amanda Waller and Rick Flag Jr. discussing a plan to do away with all of the villains. After noting Black Adam's World War III after the loss of Isis in Kandaq, The attack by the Amazonian women on the free world, and the murder of The Flash (Bart Allen) by The Flash's Rogues. Rick informs the Rogues that they along with others will be sent to another planet with no materials but their powers and weapons. They are allowed this planet, they can try to rule it, they can establish a government but they are no longer a problem for Earth or any of it's inhabitants. Fast forward two weeks to where The Rogues are on some seemingly deserted planet fighting for their lives only relying on each other to make it through day by day.
All in all I loved this story. The villains were represented perfectly, no one was out of character and it made a very fun story. It's awesome watching these villains plan, backstab and murder one another just because it's in their nature. I will say the final two issues slowed the momentum down and I didn't care much for the Vandal Savage plot but everything else was top notch. I gotta give this mini series an 8.5 rating and I recommend it to anyone who hasn't checked it out yet. The artwork is also very nice looking and accentuates the characters perfectly.
Before I get out of here I wanna link a video that someone made to a song I had never heard before, It's called "The Ballad of Barry Allen" by Jim's Big Ego. The video has clips from Teen Titans and JLA/JLU that featured Wally West but I'm not picky. Anyway I think it's a great song and the video does it justice. Anyone interested in checking it out can watch it below.
