One of the advantages of being obscenely rich is that you can hire pretty much anybody. As The Green Team has just demonstrated, by hiring Slade Wilson to protect them since their reclaimed Batmobiles and suits of power armor aren’t quite cutting it against their foe Riot.
Written by Art Baltazar and Franco, The Green Team is actually rapidly becoming one of the funniest books in the DCU.
