I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I'm going to admit that I don't even come close to understanding the Harley Quinn/Flag fling, but I'm also not-so-secretly kinda digging it. I can see all the ways this can go sideways. Also, since June Moon and Killer Croc seem to be in a somewhat-relationship, this is not close to the most mind-boggling relationship in this series. I mean, it makes sense in some ways: June, not the Enchantress but June, is kind to Croc, and is the only one he sees as pure. He's been shown to want to protect that in his backstory, and if she doesn't rebuff him, I can easily see him both falling for that, but not outwardly acknowledging that.
Still, mind-boggling because he's so unstably violent, that I can't really see a sustained relationship, which is what this seems to be turning out to be, even if behind the scenes. (His first concern is for her.)
I feel like Williams is leading up to Flag/Quinn hijinks, and while I was itching for them to start, I understand why they didn't. It should be a slow buildup.
At the same time, Zod is really super pissed off that someone is trying to control him, to the point where he's willing to preform brain surgery on himself with the help of a mirror and laser vision. All I'm going to say about that is I will never, ever trust a Dr. Zod. Never. Never ever ever.
I knew this was going to be bad as soon as I realized what Waller planned to do - and unsurprisingly, I am not wrong. Still, I wasn't quite sure how Zod's plans would come together and I'm starting to see now - and it looks like a bunch of fun. Can't wait for the next issue!
