DCU Theory: Amanda Waller Steals Wayne Tech to Unleash Metahuman Killer Terminators aka OMAC in Rumored ‘Checkmate’ Series

If the comics expansive arc is to be followed, Amanda Waller is going to have a busy day at DCU. With the latest franchise direction with black adam and introduction by James Gunn Peacemaker arc, it looks like David Zaslav’s vision for long-term continuity may soon pick up speed. A new theory now examines possible future narratives that may take shape in a world dictated by overlapping stories within the freshly baked DC Universe.

Amanda Waller’s Complex Role in the New DC Universe

The mastermind behind most sanctioned wrongdoing in DC was run under the banner of Amanda Waller. The trend continues in the future as a new possibility arises now, especially after the Peacemaker expose, for Waller to use the Wayne technologies to steer the ship during the course of the Checkmate events. Let’s dive deep into the how and why of this theory.

After Amanda Waller was exposed in Peacemakera series hailed by James Gunn who now also controls the narrative of DC Films, it is quite possible that it will be brought to justice for having sanctioned Task Force X and its illegal experimental programs, which then constitutes the narrative of the Checkmate series. But Gunn had also hinted that a Janus Directive arc, which is actually an all-out spy war between government agencies, could be adapted from the comics and thrown into the mix. If this idea does indeed get the green light at WB, who better to lead an anti-hero team than Amanda Waller herself?

Waller’s involvement in the DCU remains a matter of permanence, unthreatened by the limits of the law. In the Checkmate series, this will prove pivotal in moving the narrative forward, affecting several years of DC’s future. According to Checkmate comics, Project OMAC is an active nanotechnology program designed to track metahumans and immobilize them if they pose a threat. This project, created with the help of Bruce Wayne’s Brother Eye satellite technology, is then a weapon of great importance for Amanda Waller, given how the DCU has shown its ability to stay in touch with members. of the JSA and the Justice League in real time. .

But all is not as it seems when it comes to Waller, the master manipulator. Whether Checkmate proves to threaten her shadowy presence in government and if she does indeed have any connections or authority over Brother Eye technology and the OMAC project, Waller could single-handedly unleash hell on the DCU’s metahuman community of a simple press of a button.

The Importance of the Janus Directive Arc to DCU’s Future

After taking the comics out of the picture and looking at current aspects of the DCU, this is where it gets tricky. If Waller stands trial for her illegally sanctioned Task Force X (after the events of Peacemaker) and she also wields the kind of authority to have Superman at her disposal (according to black adam), then there has to be a character at the forefront to drive the villainous narrative without which DC is just fodder for cattle.

The Janus Directive provides that much-needed boost to the developing story since the ultimate evil group was slow to arrive. Lex Luthor has been cooking up a team of sinister villains, presumably the Legion of Doom, since the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. If by feeding in misleading information, Luthor is able to stage the events of the Intergovernmental Spy War, that is something that is sure to impress Waller. Together, with Luthor’s finances and Waller’s Brother Eye tech, they could establish the CADMUS program which can pose as Thanos’ big bad for the first phase of David Zaslav’s new DCU.

Certainly, a person with Luthor status will not be exploited as a mere Peacemaker Where Checkmate subplot, it is also in Zaslav’s wish to provide quality rather than quantity, according to his last statement. This could mean that instead of expanding the DCU projects to deal more with Luthor’s plan in the making, the new world-building could include a density of plots and arcs that can give way to a complex narrative. Either way, it’ll be a dud if DCU doesn’t use the open arc left by Luthor in the SnyderVerse in a way that can pit its Legion of Doom against the Justice League in the near future.
