We've all been waiting in eager anticipation for Suicide Squad to drop (comes out this Friday); and now that the reviews are finally rolling in...let's just say it ain't pretty--we're talking like mid-30%-not-pretty on Rotten Tomatoes.

And when you consider the more recent backlash over the Batman v Superman fiasco, the DC fans of the world are pretty dang irritated -- claiming these 'critics' are mere Marvel fanboys paid off by Marvel. 

Some of the more inspired DC fans have officially declared war on Rotten Tomatoes with a Change.org petition to remove the site from the internet altogether. See some of their reasoning below:

According to the newest rumors, it looks like Tom Hardy is too busy to play Rick Flagg in DC's super-villain team-up, Suicide Squad.

The reports also suggest that director, David Ayer his courting his End of Watch star, Jake Gyllenhaal, to take over the role. He may not have been nominated for Nightcrawler, but we think he can play an unstable leader of a covert team of convicted felons.

For the most part, critics came out swingin with guns blazin' after seeing Suicide Squad in early screenings. Some of the reviews were so harsh, we've seen particularly inspired DC fans band together to try and set in motion a petition to straight up squash Rotten Tomatoes.

Well, at least Warner Bros. enjoyed it, right?

“It bested anything that we could have expected,” Jeff Goldstein, executive vice president over at Warner Bros. told Variety. “The marketing campaign was brilliant and the performances by the cast, starting with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, were just extraordinary. They’re fun and wicked and fans enjoy it.”

While up in space and waiting to be deployed into Earth's atmosphere for an underwater Russian facility, Harley Quinn encounters an exciting Pokémon (Mewtwo tho?..), and exclaims "Oooh, There's a Pokecutey up here!"

Suicide Squad #1 is authored by Rob Williams and pencilled by Jim Lee, with Alex Sinclair on coloring duties and Nate Piekos bringing it all together on the lettering. Here's the image of Harley trying to catch 'em all:

Actor Jay Hernandez who plays El Diablo in Suicide Squad doesn't give a flying f**k, man. During his interview with Digital Spy Hernandez said the following regarding the unfavorable reviews rolling in from critics in response to Suicide Squad so far:


"I think it sucks. I mean, you know, obviously we worked hard and tried to give the fans what they wanted, and it's, it's weird that like that some of the criticism I heard was that it was too much like a comic book you know what I'm saying, in term of like, you have these characters uh, uh, being objectified like Harley Quinn. I'm like if, I mean there's certain elements that are just part of being a comic book, and if you're trying to portray that on a film you have to sort of be true to that because if you don't the fans of the comics are going to be offended ya know, so it's like you're trying to satisfy a lot of people."
