The other was a Dirty Dozen -style collection of military riff-raff and criminals assembled to handle Suicide Missions. It was retconned into existence to provide a through line from the World War Two version, through the Fifties version to the new Suicide Squad debuting in the s.
The modern version debuted in Legends 3 January, In that Crisis Crossover event, Darkseid had manipulated events such that superheroes were unable to operate in public. So when the nuclear menace Brimstone appeared, the job of stopping it was handed over to Task Force X, a secret government agency dedicated to handling paranormal menaces that had languished since the beginning of the modern superhero boom.
The agency deployed their newly created "Suicide Squad" team, which succeeded in destroying Brimstone, at the cost of the first Blockbuster's life. Advertisement: The team was then spun off into their own series, Suicide Squad, starting in May, and was written by John Ostrander.
The premise was that of a covert ops team that would handle situations too shady or bloody for the government to call regular superheroes in on. Most of the operatives were costumed criminals who served in exchange for reduced jail terms, shepherded by a few dark or damaged heroes. For easy access to their personnel, the team operated out of Belle Reve prison in Louisiana. The head of the Suicide Squad was a character almost unique in super-hero comics, Amanda Waller.
She was a middle-aged, full-figured black woman who'd clawed her way out of poverty to become a well-respected political operative.
Waller was also a rare female Magnificent Bastard who would stop at nothing to act in the interests of the United States as she saw them. Later appearances in other series have tended to leave off the "magnificent" part. Advertisement: The field leader for the first part of the series was Rick Flag, Jr.
SUICIDE SQUAD #1
A Badass Normal special forces officer, he was supposedly the Sole Survivor of the previous Suicide Squad incarnation. Ultimately got killed off and replaced by his second in command Bronze Tiger, a martial artist who'd become The Atoner after serving the League of Assassins while Brainwashed and Crazy. Other important personnel Captain Boomerang, depicted as the dirty coward's Dirty Coward. Master of the Precision-Guided Boomerang , he had joined the team largely to get that shortened prison sentence, but his stay on the team kept getting extended because of his cowardice, constant engagement in criminal activities while on leave from the team, and disdain for Amanda Waller.
Count Vertigo, an inbred noble with a Disability Superpower. The device used to correct his inner-ear problem allowed him to project nausea and loss of balance to others. At the time he was a member of the Suicide Squad, Vertigo suffered from manic-depressive behavior, and was something of a Death Seeker.
Deadshot , a badass Death Seeker , who almost never misses with a gun. The Ensemble Dark Horse of the series, Deadshot got his own spin-off miniseries during the course of the book's run, as the series moved the villain into full-blown '90s Anti-Hero mode. Duchess, a mysterious woman with a warrior mentality and Laser-Guided Amnesia. The amnesia wore off though she didn't let on for a while , and Duchess was eventually revealed to be Lashina, one of Darkseid's minions who was betrayed by her fellow Female Fury member.
Once activated, she would quickly become as much a menace to the team as to their opponents.
Nemesis, a Master of Disguise who did a lot of advance work for the team. Nightshade , a Half-Human Hybrid with darkness-related powers and the ability to effectively teleport by moving herself and others through another dimension.
Oracle, a. Barbara Gordon , who'd reinvented herself after her crippling at the hands of the Joker to become a computer whiz. Ravan, a Thugee though his version of the religion was clearly stated as non-standard and former member of the Jihad, the Suicide Squad's archenemies.
He served very unwillingly, but liked the killing part. Vixen , a then-former member of the Justice League with animal-related powers, who joined up after drug dealers killed everyone else at a modeling shoot. Shade, the Changing Man , a former fugitive from his home dimension and stranded on Earth.

He did missions and tech support for the squad in exhange for help getting home. Then the Vertigo reboot happened, which meant this Shade was effectively banished to Comicbook Limbo for better or worse. Black Orchid , who did various espionage and rescue missions for the team. For her entire run in the series, her origin was a complete and total mystery, and was only revealed after she left the book and got her very own miniseries. Whereupon she was Killed Off for Real in the first issue and was replaced with someone completely different.
No, not that Atom. Or that one. Or even the new one. The same Senator Deadshot killed. He became the new Atom on the behest of the second one, Ray Palmer, as part of a plot to unviel a group of minature assasins that were gunning for him.
After this, he stayed on with the Squad for a while until his untimely death, which the original Atom swore to avenge. Which he did. Poison Ivy. Yes, that Poison Ivy.
Ivy was first associated with the team when she drugged Vertigo and tried to make him her own personal plaything. This didn't last long, but it did lead to Ivy sticking with the team for a while, right up until the original series came to an end.
Sheeba was named after Briscoe's dead child and he cared for like it was his child, even sleeping in it rather than his own quarters. None of this stopped him from being a total badass, and he and Sheeba saved the Squad's bacon on many an occasion. Eventually, the Suicide Squad's existence was revealed to the public and later the operation was shut down and Amanda Waller sent to prison for crimes committed while head of the team. She was later offered a pardon in exchange for performing services for the government the poetic justice of this did not escape anyone and the Suicide Squad was reformed as a private contractor, though still with the ability to recruit convicted criminals as needed.
The series ended with issue 66 June, There were various incarnations of the Squad appearing in other titles for a few years, then a new Suicide Squad series began in Written by Keith Giffen, this version was headed by Frank "Sergeant" Rock , and lasted only twelve issues. The series ended on the cliffhanger that Rock may have been an impostor, and leaving open the question of just who that version of the Squad had actually worked for.
A new series launched in as part of the line-wide revamp of The DCU.
SUICIDE SQUAD #1
The series, initially written by Adam Glass and drawn by Marco Rudy, starred redesigned versions of Deadshot, Harley Quinn , and King Shark, among others, and ran for 30 issues plus an issue 0. Sometimes, extreme situations require extreme measures…or extreme individuals.
The sort of individuals who call the infamous Belle Reve Prison home—super-villains. Of course, no one will officially admit to any of this.
That's the charm of Task Force X, perhaps better known by its nickname: And we do mean high-risk. As expendable assets, all members are fitted with an explosive device in their neck to assure obedience. Given the rigorous requirements of the job, the Suicide Squad lineup is always in flux. A group of super-villains who have license to take drastic action in the name of serving a mission? There's no way that can end badly.
Kobra is about to destroy Washington, D. Trapped inside her Soultaker sword, the soul of Katana is torn between staying with her murdered husband or rejoining the world of the living.
