Suicide Squad, Vol. 1: The Black Vault

 There's a phrase that I have been accused of overusing, but one that I enjoy nevertheless: Profoundly stupid. SUICIDE SQUAD, VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT is exactly what I'm talking about when I use that phrase....a book, TV show, or movie that goes beyond stupidity, but runs with that stupidity until it is writ large, until the stupidity becomes a thing unto itself, the entity's prime reason for being. The book/TV show/movie almost becomes a stupidity-delivery engine, perpetuating itself with its own dopiness and preposterousness.
