Absolute Power: Origins #3

On September 25, Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley and artist Alitha Martinez deliver a thrilling and intense conclusion to the origin of Amanda Waller.

Amanda Waller’s journey has brought her to hell and back—from the blood-soaked streets of Chicago to the over-the-top exploits of her very own Task Force X, a.k.a. the Suicide Squad. Now, with the clock ticking on ultimate victory over the metahumans of planet Earth, the origin of DC’s most methodical menace draws to a close. But what secrets lie within the terrifying alien mind of the Brainiac Queen—and will “the Wall” survive the very seeds she herself has sown?

The final issue of Absolute Power: Origins features a main cover by Edwin Galmon, with a variant cover by Ken Lashley.

Absolute Power Tie-In Titles Available in September

The Trinity of Evil’s ploy to eradicate metahumans continues to affect DC’s Super Heroes on a personal level throughout September.

In Batman #152, the Dark Knight and Catwoman join forces with the Suicide Squad in an Absolute Power tie-in story by Chip Zdarsky and Mike Hawthorne.

Batman and Catwoman must find the key to Amanda Waller’s plans in an extremely remote—and shockingly dangerous—location! Living (and dying) up to their name, some of the Suicide Squad won’t be coming back from their mission, but will Batman and Catwoman stay free to fight another day? Batman #152 arrives at participating comic book shops September 4.

On September 11, the Green Lantern #15 team of writer Jeremy Adams and artists Fernando Pasarin and Oclair Albert take Hal Jordan into the “Danger Zone,” as he continues the fight against the Trinity of Evil. With the skies above Earth patrolled by Amanda Waller’s modified Amazo robots and his Power Battery a continent away, Hal will “borrow” the Dark Knight’s Batplane!

The battle for the soul of Metropolis takes place on September 18 in the pages of Superman #18, ending with a shocking cliffhanger that affects the future of the Superman Family titles!

In this issue by Joshua Williamson and Jamal Campbell, Amanda Waller has the superheroes of the DC Universe on the ropes! Can a powerless Superman and Zatanna find the mystical map to the Dark Roads in time to get some major backup? Meanwhile, Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, Mercy Graves, Jimmy Olsen, and Silver Banshee are on the run from the super-powered Amazo robots, and they soon find themselves part of Metropolis’s last stand.

Also available September 18, Diana and Damian Wayne finally find Amanda Waller’s Gamorran super-prison, which holds the powerless heroes they once fought alongside. Can Wonder Woman and Robin break them out before they become trapped themselves? And who is the mysterious ally that might hold the key to everything? Find out in Wonder Woman #13, written by Tom King, with art by Tony S. Daniel.

On September 25, Green Arrow and his allies are up against a wall. And it’s not Amanda Waller, but her agent of destruction, Bright. Who is Bright and why does he hate Green Arrow and his family? Ollie must decide if he should save his family, even if it means they become locked up in Waller’s super-prison! Joshua Williamson and Amancay Nahuelpan provide words and art for Green Arrow #16.

All Absolute Power main and tie-in titles are available for pre-order at participating comic book shops and online retailers beginning Thursday, June 14.
