Amanda Waller is the most feared and single-minded person in the DC Universe, constantly demonstrating that anything is possible as long as you’re willing to get a little messy. But everything is about to get more complicated as finds herself battling the heroes (and villains) of the Wildstorm Universe in a four-issue DC Black Label limited series: Waller vs. Wildstorm.
While it’s the tail end of the Cold War, the world is still icy as ever with a new fight brewing over the soul of Checkmate. As the former head of Stormwatch, Jackson King (aka Battalion) is the present super-powered public face of Checkmate, but he’s forced to confront the problem that is Adeline Kane. Convinced she is dirty and responsible for unspeakable horrors, King must find a way to stop her.
Unbeknownst to him, Kane has a shrewd new partner – a ruthless young woman by the name of Amanda Waller. She’s got plans for how metahumans can be used in war, ideals be damned.
Written by Spencer Ackerman (author of Reign of Terror and Contributing Editor to the Daily Beast) and Evan Narcisse (DC Power: A Celebration, Batman: Gotham Knights – Gilded City, Marvel’s Rise of the Black Panther), Waller vs. Wildstorm revels in Wildstorm’s history of spy-fueled superhero moral dilemmas, placing Stormwatch at odds with Amanda Waller and the lethal likes of assassin Slade Wilson (aka Deathstroke!).
