The Suicide Squad is a covert black-ops government strike team under Task Force X. The team is partially made up of imprisoned super-villains who agree to serve as expendable agents on life-threatening top-secret missions for the United States Government. In return, after sufficient service, the prisoners are granted full pardons for their crimes.

The Government does not officially acknowledge the existence of the Suicide Squad, and claims their missions as random supervillain attacks. In addition, there are other non-prisoner members such as Nemesis and Nightshade who participate in the team as part of individual arrangements. The Suicide Squad operate out of Belle Reve prison in Louisiana.

To prevent members escaping in the field, the prisoners are shackled with explosive bracelets programmed to detonate a certain distance from the field leader, who also wears a remote control that can detonate or disengage the bracelets as desired. Typically the field leader will be either Rick Flag or Bronze Tiger.

The group is largely run by Amanda Waller, although at times someone else will act as a cover for her, like when the existence of the Suicide Squad became public. The Suicide Squad has also occasionally left Task Force X and Governmental Control to work freelance.
The Suicide Squad is a team of imprisoned super-villains who perform high-risk missions for the U.S. Government in exchange for commuted sentences. They are formally known as Task Force X. The team's actions are highly classified, and the government is able to deny any involvement by claiming that they are not responsible for the damages of a random super-villain attack. Their commander is Amanda Waller, who runs the organization out of Belle Reve prison. The Suicide Squad was created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, first appearing in Brave and the Bold #25.

Get the Suicide Squad mug.
Colloquial term used for the US government’s underground operation that permanently eliminates “dangerous” prisoners who will ultimately incriminate top government officials doing very dark and illegal deeds.
Looks like globetrottingJeffrey finally got his little visit from the Suicide Squad.

Get the Suicide Squad mug.
A group of individuals that are social rejects. They can typically be seen wearing all black or anime clothes. They smell like hot dog water and BO and probably never shower. They look down on anyone that’s popular, blonde, white, fratty, or even masculine. These are the same people who said KAM and ✨ I know it’s small ✨. They look down on country and rap music but probably listen to Billie Eyelash, BTS, and other Alt music.
