Peacemaker Meeting Bloodier Than The Movie

Today, we look at when Peacemaker, who is a member of the Squad in the DC Extended Universe and now the current Suiicide Squad comic book, first met the Squad in the DC Universe.

In “When We First Met”, we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic lore, like the first time someone said, “Avengers Assemble!” or the first appearance of Batman’s giant penny or the first appearance of Alfred Pennyworth or the first time Spider-Man’s face was shown half-Spidey/half-Peter. Stuff like that.”Cruella 2021 Streaming

One of the fascinating aspects of the DC Universe in the wake of Crisis on Infinite Earths is that, at least in the books dealing with the United States Government, things were taken very seriously in the connection between the various titles, all of which were starring characters that were working for the government, but, of course, different groups had different agendas.”Shang-Chi et la Légende des Dix Anneaux 2021 Streaming

The three main projects were the Suicide Squad, the spy group, Checkmate, and the Atom Project, which created Captain Atom (they all starred in their respective comic books, Suicide Squad, Checkmate and Captain Atom). There was a lot of overlap between the books, like Nightshade was a member of the Suicide Squad while being Captain Atom’s liaison over in the pages of Captain Atom. There were also a couple of side projects in the various government agencies that appeared here and there, namely Project: Peacemaker (Peacemaker often showed up in Checkmate) and the American Security Agency’s Force of July group (who fought the Outsiders during Mike W. Barr’s acclaimed run on the series). The main groups were pretty much all considered Take Force X.”Don’t breathe 2 2021 Streaming

The Janus Directive storyline begins in Suicide Squad #27 (by John Ostrander, Kim Yale, John Snyder and Karl Kesel) following Checkmate #15 (by Paul Kupperberg, Steve Ervin and Al Vey) when Amanda Waller reveals to the heads of Checkmate and the Peacemaker Project that the other groups within Task Force X (namely The Force of July and the Atom Project) are working against them and that they need to be taken out…”Free Guy 2021 Streaming

Peacemaker and a few Checkmate agents take Dr. Megala, the top scientist of the Atom Project, captive and in the process, nearly kill Wade Eiling, the guy in charge of the Atom Project. The Atom Project then sends one of its agents, the sadistic Major Force, who hunts down the kidnapped Dr. Megala and is met by Peacemaker, who plans on killing him…

The Squad are brought in to take out Dr. Megala themselves while he is in Ckeckmate custody and when the Squad shows up, they see Peacemaker and Major Force duking it out and Vixen orders the Squad to take them BOTH down and Shade the Changing Man uses his belt to deal Peacemaker a major blow to start…”Sans un bruit 2 2021 Streaming

Peacemaker, you see, was the son of a former Nazi Commantdant and he was REALLY messed up due to that, psychologicaally. His father was a strict disciplinarian, so he imagines his father yelling at him to motivate him, but at the same time, he is disgusted at his father’s Nazi beliefs. The end result is one mentally tortured dude. A dazed Peacemker decides to complete his mission and kill Dr. Megala…

The interesting thing is that before this moment, Vixen was planning on the mission going withOUT killing anyone, despite Waller outright ordering her to kill Megala. Earlier in the storyline, the Squad had taken on the Force of July (who had been prewarned that the Squad was coming) and the Squad ended up having to kill most of the patriotic-themed superheroes, which was also not the plan of the Squad leader, the Bronze Tiger.”Godzilla vs. Kong 2021 Streaming
