Starting now, you will look like a unit, you will act like a unit, you will fight as a unit and only with the enemy! You're back in the Army now! Or so help me, I'll put you in graves myself!

Sarge Steel is trying to convince President Ronald Reagan he should shut down the Suicide Squad. Amanada Waller tries to convince him otherwise. To do so she hands him a file detailing the actions of the squad's history. The group was led by Capt. Richard Montgomery Flag.

During Truman's presidency it came to be known as Task Force X and on to the current day.

Reagan decides to keep the squad running.


  • Wonder Woman's appearance among those in the Justice Society who appeared at the House Un-American Activities Committee hearing was originally considered an error since the original Golden Age Wonder Woman was erased from post-Crisis history. The only possible modern explanation for her appearance is that it is the modern day Wonder Woman's mother Hippolyta who went back in time to become the post-Crisis Golden Age Wonder Woman. As published however, the character depicted is clearly the original.
  • This issue is Chapter 22 of the 1986 Legends crossover event.
