- It's a devil we can let loose, then lock up when it's all over. And that's very seductive. Almost enough to make you forget you're dealing with a devil.
Synopsis for "Watery Grave, Part 3 of 3: Honor Among Thieves"
Meanwhile, Knockout and Deadshot escape their cell and meet up with Captain Boomerang, as well as Sam Makoa and King Shark. Stinger attacks them with a horde of Silicon Dragons, despite the Lady's orders not to use anything but equal force. Even fighting that way the Suicide Squad shreds his forces and captures him. Deadshot is all set to blow his head off, but Makoa manages to cut a deal with him so that he'll betray the Dragon.
Lady Dragon presses her attack on the Kid, using every trick her base has to wear away at him. She maintains her "equal force" rule, however--when Superboy loses his X-ray specs, she puts away her laser sword. She holds the advantage, but suddenly is alerted to Stinger's treachery and dives down a side tunnel. SB pursues her. The Lady traps the Squad by trapdoors dropping them down and leaving them dangling high above the base's reactors. Lady Dragon emerges and shouts out that she has been betrayed. Captain Boomerang admits that he was the turncoat, feeling really stupid when LD reveals that she was talking about Stinger. Deadshot shoots him in the hands for his treachery, but Superboy saves him from falling. Knockout tackles King Shark and they fall towards the reactor, which Stinger warns will detonate when the Shark's belt goes off. Lady Dragon flees while Superboy helps the rest of the team to some escape pods. The entire base is destroyed in a series of explosions.
Later, he is debriefed by Amanda Waller and then gets heart to heart with Makoa about the mission.
Appearing in "Watery Grave, Part 3 of 3: Honor Among Thieves"
- Amanda Waller
- Mack Harlin
- Rex Leech
- Suicide Squad
- Tana Moon
- Curt (Only appearance; dies)
- Wade (Only appearance; dies)
- Captain Boomerang's injuries force him into a short lived retirement -- one that ends with Neron and Underworld Unleashed.
- Stinger abandons the team when Makoa makes him "a better offer." Makoa almost certainly would have no authority to offer amnesty to Stinger, who in a highly publicized attack in Metropolis caused the entire Hobsneck Bridge to collapse, leading to at least dozens of fatalities. Assuming charges are pressed, no connection is ever traced back to Rex Leech being the man who initially hired Stinger. It may be that Stinger would not betray Leech, but this is unlikely as he betrayed the far more dangerous Lady Dragon in this issue.
- Superboy loses his X-Ray specs in his battle with Lady Dragon.
