DC Comics’ SECRET SIX in Development at CBS

- Advertisement -

Yet another DC Comics graphic novel adaptation is coming to our obey screens soon, this time at CBS, with the live-action realization of the Secret Six.

If you are unfamiliar with this team of villains, think of them as another version of the Suicide Squad. In the graphic novel, the group was led by a mysterious figure known as ‘Mockingbird’, which each member assumed was one of their five counterparts on the team. The figure blackmails each team member to go on suspicious missions, similar treatment as to what Amanda Waller forces the squad to do when summoned.

The original series premiered in the 1960s, initially as a seven-issue run, but was brought back in the 1980s. In the 2000s, with the creative team of Jimmy Palmiotti, Gail Simone and Brad Walker, however, it was brought back yet again and featured a team of villains, including Bane, Catwoman and Harley Quinn.

The initial show description might suggest that the original team will be used to avoid the comparisons of Suicide Squad, should a ragtag team of misfits be used. What is also interesting was the choice not to make this show exclusive to DC Universe. We will just have to wait and see how things play out over the course of the rest of the year.
