When supervillains get caught, it's up to the government to keep the bad guys in captivity. Amanda Waller, a tough-as-nails federal agent, has other plans. She's heading up Task Force X (aka, the Suicide Squad) as an ultimatum to the world's biggest villains. You either go on her shady, near-impossible missions in the name of democracy, or rot in jail. And one other thing: Most operatives don't make it back alive! Starring some of the most popular villains in the DCU, including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bronze Tiger, Nightshade, Rick Flag and more, these original Suicide Squad issues from John Ostrander were considered some of the most cutting edge comics to date. Many of these characters live on today, including those featured in the upcoming Suicide Squad film from Warner Bros, releasing August 2016. Collects Suicide Squad #16-22.
