Suicide Squad has tangled with ancient demons, evil Kryptonians, alien armadas. However, Task Force X has yet to face a one-man army -- that is, until the upcoming arc of the DC Comics series.
With February's Suicide Squad #35, the team of villains and antiheroes will meet an enigmatic new hero known only as the Wall. Writer Rob Williams teased a sketch of the new character by artist Eduardo Pansica. Even without the colors, it's clear this character is rocking some serious tech.

The Wall will arrive in the upcoming arc "Hacked," which also sees the return of previous Squad member Hack following her resurrection. Wall is described as a "patriotic hero" and extremely deadly, which the Suicide Squad will see when it goes up against him and its former teammate during the short arc. Despite the Wall's characterization as a patriot, the solicitation text for March and April have already hinted that something will happen to make him go rogue. The Suicide Squad will tangle with him to save the country, and it'll take everything the team has.
Suicide Squad #35, by writer Rob Williams and artist Eduardo Pansica, will arrive Feb. 7 from DC Comics.
