"Lemme take a look at ya. A Muscle-head, a nutjob, something that offends my eyes and a homeless person. You’re perfect."
—Gizmo to Task Force X[src]

The Suicide Squad (also known as Task Force X) is a corrupt government-funded organization which is composed of an anti-hero team of incarcerated supervillains who act as deniable assets for the United States government, undertaking high-risk black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences.

Director Amanda Waller hand-picks members and oversees all operations. As insurance against the Squad potentially rebelling, she equips them with a tracker in their necks that acted as a powerful nano-explosive with enough destructive capability to decapitate them. Waller also implies that, besides them running away, getting captured, or disobeying a direct order, she also can potentially set them off if they even gave an answer far too slowly for her tastes regardless of whether it's the correct answer.

During the Metropolis Invasion, the Squad's goal is to kill the brainwashed Justice League.

Incident Reports[]

Arkham Origins Incident[]


Deathstroke with a sign up list for the first Suicide Squad

After the Joker's defeat, Amanda Waller comes to Deathstroke to recruit him into the Suicide Squad. When Amanda tosses a sign-up list to Deathstroke, she implies that he would rot in Blackgate if he didn't join.

Arkham Origins Blackgate Incident[]

Three and a half months later, Waller arranges for a prison break and sends Catwoman into Blackgate in an attempt to recruit Bane into the Suicide Squad. Waller monitored the actions of Batman, Catwoman and all those who were involved in the breakout that night.

Despite Deadshot and Bronze Tiger being successfully abducted by Captain Rick Flag under Waller's orders, the mission was ultimately a failure as Batman was able to defeat Catwoman and recapture Bane, with Rick Flag in particular being forced to arrest Bane to save face.

Kill the Justice League Incident[]

Following Brainiac's invasion of Metropolis, Amanda Waller recruits Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and King Shark as apart of Task Force X with the goal of stopping his forces.

    • According to Assault on Arkham's director Jay Oliva, Deathstroke left the Squad sometime around their ninth mission.
