>no major additions or removals from the synergy team outside of single issues and JL vs SS
>team dynamic is boring as shit and has gone nowhere outside of Flagg(who has never once been written well outside of Ostrander)/Harley
Post-Ostrander Suicide Squad was a mistake
His "reintroduction" of her was literally two appearances on JLU where she was just one of a mob of villains.
The character never went away in the comics, some version of her has always been around. Her appearances were few and far between because she was a d-list villain tied to a c-list hero. Her brief appearances in JLU did nothing to change that. This recent push on her is clearly more linked to her role on the CW Flash.
>Is all the push just because of the CW Flash show or what?
Pretty much. TV, and especially movies, get vastly (millions instead of tens of thousands, couple of hundred thousand at most if it's a famous trade) views and tend to stick in the public conciousness. I mean, Arrow, Flash and Gotham views per episode pretty much wipe the floor with a total months comic sales for DC. The movies? Tens of millions of people see every single one.
Despite the comics coming first, the TV and Movie versions of the comic characters are the defining interpretations. Generally speaking at least.
Thanks for the storytime, poor Caitlin, but given that she seems to be part of the JL I will not worry, the only important question here is when she and Bruce are going to bang???
