When Super-Villains get caught, it's up to the government to keep them in captivity. Amanda Waller, a tough-as-nails federal agent, has other plans. She's heading up Task Force X (a.k.a. The Suicide Squad) as an ultimatum to the world's biggest villains. Join 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! This volume collects the first eight issues of SUICIDE SQUAD, along with a tale from SECRET ORIGINS #14.
