“This gendered character attack has no place in a business dispute and contributes to an environment in which women and girls are perceived as less able than men to protect their own interests without facing ad hominem criticism,” write the orgs in a joint statement.

SUICIDE SQUAD: TRIAL BY FIRE
Writer: John Ostrander
Artist: Luke McDonnell
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: July 27, 2021
In the late 1980s, a secret government program designed to neutralize super-powered threats to national security was reactivated.
Task Force X had gone through many transformations since it was first created during World War II, but one thing had never changed: its members called themselves the Suicide Squad, and they lived up to their name.
Faced with a rising tide of metahuman crime and terror, the program’s hard-headed director Amanda Waller sold the President on her vision of an updated Task Force X: a covert action team composed of incarcerated super-villains who earned time off their sentences for every mission they completed. Deniable, disposable, and deployable to any spot-on Earth, this new Suicide Squad would be the perfect weapon of last resort — as long as they could be kept under control.
