The Rundown: Bloodsport goes on a dangerous assignment. And Waller grows suspicious of her team.
Bloodsport muses over his past. He then logs notes from a difficult mission on Earth-3. Later, Bloodsport checks in on a family with surprising ties himself. Finally, he has a confrontation with a deadly enemy. Elsewhere, Waller must deal with the fallout from a previous incident.
The Story: In this episode, Thompson gives a humanizing look into Bloodsport’s past, and shows how different circumstances may impact a person’s outcome. The magnitude of Amanda Waller’s reach is also showcased. I found this to be an exciting and content filled episode mixed with the perfect amount of action. And I look forward to finding out how Waller will handle a new enemy that does not succumb to her weaponry.
The Art: This edition features detailed drawings and brilliant colors in a modern comic style. I found the action scenes to be very engaging and interesting. This is a good looking and visually pleasing issue.
